New Creation featuring Pastor George Crews, III
From the CD, Help Is On The Way (2011)
New Creation takes an oldie on a spin with Pastor George Crews, III guesting on lead. The Hillsborough, NC based group escorts its listeners back in time with a cover of the Temptations’ “Christmas Everyday,” featured on New Creation’s non-Christmas gospel CD, Help Is On The Way.
Oldtimers will recall the Temps’ Melvin Franklin lending his sultry bass to the song’s lead (or even Smokey Robinson’s version before that, with the Miracles). Crews, by contrast, is a tenor who delivers this swinging tune with near-equal oomph. The main distinction here, of course, is that Pastor Crews and New Creation direct their affirmation to Jesus and the fact that He makes it Christmas every day.
