Entertainment One announces the launch of eOne Worship, with new releases coming in 2013 from GRAMMY® Nominee and Dove and Stellar Award-Winner Martha Munizzi as well as newcomers BJ Putnam and Bryan Popin.
“I am excited to partner with eOne Worship and be a part of the team with my friends and co-worship leaders,” said Munizzi. “I’m looking forward to new music, collaborations with artists, and opportunities in 2013 with eOne Worship.”
eOne Worship is targeting the fall for a new release from Munizzi, who is spending the spring of 2013 launching her “Epic Worship School of Ministry” where she is mentoring future worship leaders and pastors for ministry. In addition, Munizzi hosts “EPIC WORSHIP” nights in her hometown of Orlando, Fla. once a month. Munizzi says, “I have been sensing God leading me to develop and mentor future worship leaders, pastors and musicians, and we are so excited to see Epic Worship School of Ministry now become a reality! My desire is to not only help people develop a strong foundation of leadership, but through our Epic Worship events each month, help lead them into God encounters that will ultimately impact the local church!”
With multiple projects on the schedule for 2013, eOne Worship kicks off the year with the multi-talented singer/songwriter Putnam. Putnam is the lead worship pastor for the mega-church, multi-campus Church for the Nations in Phoenix. His upcoming CD, More and More Live, co-produced by Putnam and Israel Houghton and recorded live at the church, releases on March 12, 2013. Popin’s album is slated for early summer.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with BJ and Bryan, and it is such a privilege for us to get to partner with Martha Munizzi who has been a leading voice for the multi-cultural church,” said Aaron Manes, label director, eOne Worship. “As cultures unite we cannot ignore our traditions but what is occurring in the church is a new voice of collaboration across both racial and musical lines especially when it comes to worship music; there is a really beautiful and holy thing occurring in our church communities. We are excited to give a voice to the music of today’s multi-cultural church and partner with pastors and churches to serve the greater body.”
This coming spring, Putnam joins Houghton on tour as a special guest making stops at churches and venues across the country. Stay tuned to facebook.com/eOneWorship and Twitter.com/eOneWorship for upcoming tour dates and cities.
