(Integrity Music/Tyscot Records)
For Casey J, making music is about sharing Jesus’ hope beyond the church walls, and the Stellar Award-winning gospel star radiates that hope in The Gathering.
Taking inspiration from pop-up worship events she’s hosted over the years, The Gathering stands out for its organic, intimate sound captured at a farm near her home in Atlanta. Casey leans into classic gospel with her stirring voice and joyful backing choir, but she isn’t afraid to play around with elements of Americana and pop to keep the mix fresh and energetic.
The true heart of the record shines in “Adopted.” As the crowd sings along, “You have made us sons and daughters,” you catch a glimpse of the real human connections happening through worship in her special intimate gatherings.
