Donald Lawrence's THE LAW OF CONFESSION, a transformational collection of masterful songs, has landed Lawrence the highest selling first week of his career, and a #2 position on Billboard's Top Gospel Chart. Additionally, the CD is the #2 Christian/Gospel Title on iTunes and #71 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart.
Donald Lawrence says: "I thank everyone for their support of this record. I'm Godly proud "The Word" has inspired and challenged you in all areas of your life. As "The Word" was poured into me I poured into the recording and while I'm happy for the high debut I'm happier that people are inspired to study and speak those things that be not as though they were. "The Law of Confession." Continue to confess God's word daily!"
His first solo set since 2004, the new project was inspired by the forthcoming book, "The Law of Confession," by Bill Winston (shepherd of Chicago's Living Word Christian Center where the project was recorded live). The collection revolves around a simple Biblical tenet: "A law is simply a principle, based on the predictable consequence of an act," Lawrence says. "Confession in the Greek language is homo-logeo which means to say what has been said. There is a spiritual law for confession: you just say what God has already said…`Speak the Word.'" The first single, "Back 2 Eden," is currently Top-10 at Gospel radio with heat to fuel an even further ascent.
"There are a lot of artists vying for the Gospel music consumer week after week, and it is great that Donald Lawrence remains at the top of so many people's lists. During this challenging time in our society and our economy, a CD such as THE LAW OF CONFESSION can really bring about spiritual and emotional healing. We anticipate a long life for this CD and applaud Donald Lawrence for his continued artistic excellence," says James "Jazzy" Jordan, Executive Vice President, Verity Gospel Music Group.
