Nashville, TN (September 2, 2022)
Billboard Music, Stellar, and Dove Award-winning musician and songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard has released “The Church I Grew Up In,” the second single from her forthcoming album HYMNS, out October 7 via Motown Gospel. The new LP finds Cobbs Leonard going bigger and bolder than ever before, reimagining classic hymns of love and grace with a series of sweeping, ambitious arrangements that draw on everything from worship and Gospel to country, pop, and R&B. HYMNS was 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 and features a number of guests, including Jennifer Hudson, Kierra Sheard, Mary Mary, The Walls Group, and more.

“The Church I Grew Up In” really tells the story of the album and also serves as a revival song. “It’s a reminder that who we are matters, that the church matters, that the church is still alive,” says Cobbs Leonard. “I think it’s important to remind people of that coming out of this pandemic. Even though our faith may have been shaken, God’s church is still alive and his power is still here. The song captures everything I want this album to say.”
