Stellar Award nominated balladeer, Earnest Pugh, has finished mixing and editing his highly anticipated “The W.I.N. (Worship In Nassau) Experience” CD/DVD that releases September 17, 2013 on P-Man Records. The project is anchored by the soul-stirring new anthem of praise – “More of You” – that’s now come in at #17 on next week’s Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart. P-Man Records has also just finished a typography video of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfdoJGIKlcY and the track is also available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/more-of-you/id670426893?i=670427256
The power ballad was written by Pugh and produced by Grammy Award winner Cedric Thompson. “I wrote the song after spending some time in prayer,” Pugh says. “While in prayer I could hear – in the near background – my phone ringing and buzzing with reminders for meetings, etc. but despite the urgency of those calls and text messages, I felt compelled to stay in God’s presence just a little longer. Before I knew it an entire hour had passed and so had several important meetings. My time with God empowered me beyond words. From that day on, it was evident that nothing mattered more to me than quenching the hunger and thirst for more of God.”
Recorded live in Nassau, Bahamas in the Grand Ballroom of the Atlantis Hotel, the album commemorates Pugh’s 20-15 Celebration – twenty years in ministry and fifteen years in the music Industry. The project includes the CD and a DVD video of the full-length concert that boasted cameos by gospel icon Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen, LeJuene Thompson and the energetic choir, Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis. Aside from “More of You,” the set will also include the studio version of Pugh’s recent Top 40 hit “I Believe You Most” that found the artist collaborating with J. Moss and the PAJAM production team.
