Dr. Leonard Scott has 13 albums under his belt and is known for dynamic worship songs such as “Pentecostal Praise Medley” and “My Body Belongs To God.” Ruth La’Ontra is primed to be the label’s next success story as Anthony Brown has produced her highly anticipated sophomore set that is tentatively scheduled for release in 2017.
Tyscot is also celebrating its four decades of musical ministry with a fifteen-track anthology album of some of its greatest musical moments, “Feel Good! 40 Years of Life Changing Music” (http://smarturl.it/FeelGood40).
