*On May 17, Gospel fans will be able to enjoy the soulful sounds of inspirational greats like Kim Burrell, Trin-i-tee 5:7, and Micah Stampley. But the unique deal about this compilation album is that Music World Gospel teamed with the American Heart Association and the Gospel Music Channel to make it happen and to educate the world about strokes.

“I enjoyed participating in the selection process for the Most Powerful Voices Gospel Music Competition,” said Mathew Knowles, Music World Gospel founder/CEO and American Heart Association spokesperson. “It is always a delightful experience to witness new and developing talent.  But more importantly, the mission and purpose of this competition is to raise awareness about the risk of stroke, particularly in the African American community.  And it’s an issue that is personal to me, I suffer from high pressure and must take medication daily. Our partnership with the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association is a collective cause that our Music World artists will be actively engaged in and we fully support this initiative during National Stroke Month and throughout the year.”

The compilation features ten songs by Kim Burrell (“Happy”), Trin-i-tee 5:7 (“I’m Still Holdin’ On”), Vanessa Bell Armstrong (“It’s Over Now”), Brian Courtney Wilson (“All I Need”), Juanita Bynum (“Soul Cry, [Oh, Oh, Oh] – Recitation Version”), Micah Stampley (“Corinthian Song”), Myron Butler and Levi (“Set Me Free”), Ted Winn (“Reap”) as well as the winners of the American Heart Association’s Most Powerful Voices Gospel Music Competition-Brandon Camphor and One Way (“It’s Possible [Gotta Have Faith]”) of Upper Marlboro, Maryland (artist) and Daniel Mitchell and Hillel (“Great Things”) of Gainesville, Florida (choir).
