Following an astounding debut on “Space Jam 2’s” movie soundtrack and recent Stellar Award nomination for “Contemporary Choir of the Year”; gospel artist Jason McGee & The Choir is set to release a debut album entitled “Power” on all digital music providers on Friday, July     30.

The bold new album will feature nine music tracks brimming with contemporary and traditional gospel sounds including upbeat title track “Power” featuring guest vocalist Lisa Knowles-Smith along with poignant ballad and current radio single, “It’s Not Over,” which is already tracking to be a breakout choir song of the year following it’s January music video premiere.

Writer/singer McGee is one of the gospel music industry’s leading choir directors who carefully curated the album’s vision and creative direction. “This project was designed to reach the hearts of our listeners with hope. After such a turbulent year, we’ve all shared common experiences that have brought us to a crossroad. We want to encourage people that they can find joy in believing again,” says McGee.
