Israel & New Breed Earn 2 GRAMMY Nominations For ‘Jesus At The Centre’

Israel Houghton & New Breed Earn 2 GRAMMY Nominations For Jesus At The Centre

Following four back-to-back GRAMMY Award-winning albums, Israel Houghton returns with New Breed to gather two additional GRAMMY nominations for the first live recording in five years from Israel & New Breed, ‘Jesus At The Centre,’ which was recorded as a joint venture by Integrity Music and RGM-NEW BREED Music. The nominations were announced last night by The Recording Academy from “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown To Music’s Biggest Night,” a one-hour CBS entertainment special broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Receiving a nomination for Best Gospel Album, as well as for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for the hit AC radio single, ‘Your Presence Is Heaven,’ the latter nod marks Houghton’s first nomination in the category. The awards will be given out during the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards, live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, 10th February 2013.

In addition to the GRAMMY nominations, Houghton has been tapped by the 28th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards to perform at their annual awards ceremony to tape 19th January 2013. Houghton will perform his current Top 5 and climbing hit Gospel single, ‘It’s Not Over (When God Is In It)’ from ‘Jesus At The Centre’.

‘Jesus At The Centre’ was released 13th August 2012 and launched to the top of sales charts and gathering praise from fans and critics alike. Recorded live over four days in front of more than 29,000 worshippers at Houston’s Lakewood Church, the ‘Jesus At The Centre’ double-CD, 18 song album with three additional studio singles features Israel & New Breed returning to their roots, delivering new anthems for the modern day church.

Co-writing all the songs, except the Bob Dylan cover, ‘To Make You Feel My Love,’ and ‘You Have Me,’ by Michael and Lisa Gungor, Israel says, “The overarching story of the album is that sometimes we can be so ‘churched’ that we can lose sight of the ‘who, what, why’ of worship. This project simply places Jesus where he is supposed to be. We intentionally removed the metaphors and simply focused on his name.”

Taking the message and music on the road, Israel shared the stage for the very first time with peers Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp and Donnie McClurkin on The King’s Men tour that filled 15 major market venues in the US this autumn. Israel’s touring continues with The Experience event Nigeria, followed by an event in London on 9th December before returning to the US for a series of dates beginning in January.
