Lurine Cato Releases Christmas Single Following The Star (Closer) Feat Tony Momrelle & JayEss

After a strong start to 2012 with her single ‘You Revive Me,’ Lurine Cato is back with a brand new single to bring in Christmas season titled ‘Following The Star (Closer)’ featuring Tony Momrelle and Stellar, Dove and MOBO Award nominee JayEss.

In a bid to put “Christ back into Christmas” Cato has teamed up with Marcus Johnson (‘You Revive Me’ remix) to bring a song that will capture the attention of all who hear it and focus it on Jesus… The reason for the season.

‘Following The Star (Closer)’ rings out with the exquisite vocals of Cato and Momrelle. The blend of the harmonies, reminiscent of the great duos from the likes of Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men or BeBe & Cece Winans paired with the ultramodern musical twist provided by Marcus Johnson and lyrical whizz-kid, JayEss has culminated in an original Christmas song with a unique flavour.

After writing the song nearly a year ago, ‘Following The Star (Closer)’ was put down while Cato sought out the right person to feature on the song with her.

“Regarding getting the right voice to duet on this track with me was hard because it had to be a male vocalist and that could sing high and RnB and riff up the place, lol!” Cato explains.

Tony Momrelle, a life-long friend of Cato and lead singer of Incognito says,

“I’ve known Lurine for many years now. We have worked together on different projects, but it’s been an absolute pleasure to sing a duet with her! Lurine has so much passion for her music and ministry that you can hear it jump out at you when she sings!”

Speaking about the involvement of Marcus Johnson and JayEss, Cato shares,

“Marcus Johnson is an ace at producing an authentic RnB sound (amongst others), when I presented the song to him he was immediately on it. He captured what I could hear for this song and more.”

Cato continues, “JayEss was my first choice to Rap on this song; I knew he would lay right back on this track just the right tone and of course FIRE LYRICS!”  The remix of the track produced by Johnson is also making waves.

Momrelle believes ‘Following The Star (Closer)’ is not just a great Christmas song but a “great song in general.” With that in mind ‘Following The Star (Closer)’ will be available to download from iTunes, Amazon and other digital music outlets.
