Hezekiah Walker's "Every Praise" is the #1 Gospel Song

Posted on July 30, 2013 by Family Christian There have been 0 comments

Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise” is quickly becoming an anthem in Gospel music.  Today the song has landed in the #1 spot on the R&R Gospel chart and, after debuting #1 seven weeks ago, his album - AZUSA THE NEXT GENERATION -  is also #1 on Billboard’s Gospel sales chart.

“The airwaves are saturated with powerful music right now, and it feels great that ‘Every Praise’ has cut through to the top of the charts,” says B. Jeffrey Grant Clark, Vice President of Radio Promotions for RCA Inspiration.  “’Every Praise’ is another Hezekiah Walker song that will be sung throughout the ages – it continues his outstanding legacy of creating timeless church music.”

Donald Lawrence, who produced “Every Praise,” says the song “sonically and stylistically ushers in and validates a potential new genre – ‘Christian Soul.’ “It was an honor to once again produce great music with Hezekiah Walker and tread new water by developing a new sound for choirs and choir music,” says Lawrence.

Hezekiah Walker says that “Every Praise” is a universally relatable song.  “Whether they go to church or not, people have a praise in them that is reserved for God,” says Walker.  “This song connects with a feeling of thanksgiving and honor that everyone has at some point.”

“The driving force for me is keeping choir music relevant,” says Walker.  “Back in the day when I came along there were a lot of choirs, but you could tell the difference between a Ricky Dillard, a Donald Lawrence, a John P. Kee and a Hezekiah Walker because we all had our certain sound.  That’s what kept us in the game, and I’m constantly keeping a focus on delivering a unique sound,” he says.
