Nashville, TN (October 7, 2022)
GRAMMY, Billboard Music, Stellar, and Dove Award-winning Christian music artist and songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard unveils HYMNS–the biggest gospel album of the year–out now via Motown Gospel. There’s something utterly timeless about Leonard’s extraordinary new work; something at once both warmly familiar and breathtakingly fresh.
Captured in front of a live audience of more than 3,000 at The Greenwood Oasis on the campus of New Life Southeast in Chicago, the record is a larger-than-life reimagining of classic hymns of love and grace, one that speaks to our modern world even as it reaches far beyond it. The arrangements are sweeping and cinematic, drawing on worship and gospel and even hints of country, pop, and R&B, radiating an undeniable sense of joy and fellowship at every turn. HYMNS touches all corners of gospel greatness, featuring extraordinary guests: Jennifer Hudson, Kierra Sheard, The Walls Group, Ricky Dillard, and even Mary Mary, who haven’t released music in over 5-years!
“I want there to be an overwhelming sense of God’s love and kindness and grace towards us in these songs,” says Tasha Cobbs Leonard. “I want to remind people that even when we feel undeserving, He sees us and we’re the apple of His eye. Through the highs and the lows, we have a consistent friend and father in God.”
