Nashville, TN (June 19, 2020)
Long-running, cutting edge Southern Gospel group, New Legacy Project, have announced the release of its new lyric video “Born For This,” a single recently released to radio from their album The Rest of the Story.
This upbeat and lilting song was written by popular Nashville writers Gina Boe, Carl Cartee and Kenna West. The lyrics encourage us to “breathe in this moment… knowing that there’s hope in the making.” Initially NLP hadn’t planned to release this particular cut as a single, but with all the strife in the world today they knew it’s time had come.
Of the song, group owner and Gospel Music Hall of Fame Member Rick Price says “When I first heard ‘Born For This,’ written by my long-time friend Kenna Turner-West with Gina and Carl, I knew we had to record it. And it’s more relevant now than then. The words speak to current events both here and abroad. The world needs hope right now, and we are called to bring that message in the best way we know how — through our music. We really were born for this.”
The Rest of the Story was produced by Bobby Blazier and Rick Price. Every cut showcases the group’s stellar harmonies and powerful delivery. The lead vocal for Born For This is flawlessly performed by baritone Luke Yates, and his resonant tone serves to emphasize the important message.
While “Born for This” might not quite fit the Southern Gospel sound you’re used to hearing from NLP, it will assuredly be a song you will want to play again and again.
