Donald Lawrence & Company
From the upcoming CD, Your Righteous Mind (Available Aug 9, 2011)
Available on iTunes
Donald Lawrence’s songs are often lifted right from the Scriptures, reminding you that the Bible is as timely as it is timeless. Such is the matter of “Spiritual” from his forthcoming Your Righteous Mind album.
Blanche McAllister-Dykes (whom you know from Lawrence’s Tri-City Singers) delivers this number’s rich lead vocal atop a soul-infused music and choir arrangement, before Lawrence shouts out the band in the brassy musical interlude. Die-hard Clark Sisters fans will recognize that the song’s climactic vamp makes its ascent sampling the sisters’ early 1980’s tune, “Walking in the Spirit.”
“Spiritual” is the second single from Your Righteous Mind. The first single, which is the album’s title song and features Dorinda Clark-Cole, has been making waves since its radio debut.
Lawrence recently announced that the full-length project will drop August 9th.
