Dr. Bill Winston is known as an uplifting and motivating speaker, inspiring God’s people through his dynamic and riveting sermons. His fiery and life-changing messages have transformed members of the Chicago area mega-church he pastors, Living Word Christian Center. Now the Chicagoan is taking the preached word and pouring it into music with the release of his church’s first CD project entitled, Bill Winston Presents Living Word: Released. Featuring the talents of Donald Lawrence, Kim Stratton and Walt Whitman.
The project’s lead single, “Released”, has been soaring up the charts, recently hitting #32 on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart. With a powerful exhortation by Lawrence, the song emphatically releases listeners into their destinies. Executed with the musical brilliance that gospel music fans have been accustomed to from Donald Lawrence, the song necessitates lifted hands and leaves all inspired.
In addition to Lawrence’s breathtaking single, “Released”, the CD contains another jewel by the famed songwriter, “Give”. A majestic masterpiece, the track is a festive one. The CD also includes a mesmerizing cut, “Favor Ain’t Fair”, sung by the incomparable Kim Stratton. With a jazzy flair, Stratton delivers the urban-flavored tune with a class rarely seen in gospel. She also ministers powerfully on the ballad “Awesome Wonder”. Gospel recording artist Ed Tucker showcases two powerful songs: a beautiful and moving worship tune called “Be Still” and the bouncy “Sacrifice of Praise”. Walt Whitman, known for his days as the leader of the Soul Children of Chicago, makes an appearance on CD’s last song, “Church Medley”. No Bill Winston CD project would be complete without a few words of inspiration from the famed pastor. Track 2, “Prophetic Word”, sets the listener free as the prophet releases held-up blessings and speaks restoration to anyone within earshot.
