Stellar Award-winning gospel star James Fortune is gearing up for his first live recording.
The chart-topping entertainer will have record his next CD live in Atlanta, GA on Sept. 6 at Bishop Dale Bronner’s Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral.
The forthcoming live session will be for Fortune’s eighth CD and will feature guest appearances by Israel Houghton, Isaac Carree, Zacardi Cortez, Tasha Cobbs and several not-yet-announced artists.
Prior to his live recording, the 34-year-old songwriter/producer/arranger is releasing his seventh CD, a compilation, on Tuesday, July 30.
The disc, “James Fortune Presents: Kingdom Music Vol. 1” (eOne Music/FIYA World Entertainment) includes guest performances by a variety of artists including Todd Galberth, VaShawn Mitchell, Canton Jones, Cortez, Carree and Fortune’s wife and music collaborator, Cheryl Fortune.
“I am truly excited to bring fans the compilation album, and perform a live evening of new music to remember together with FIYA and special guest performances from my friends, in praise and worship of God’s blessings and the awesome power of faith. Join me and we will make this live recording an unforgettable celebration of music and faith together,” said Fortune.
On May 28, Fortune began hosting a nationally-syndicated evening radio program called “The James Fortune Show” for Radio One. The Houston-based gospel star replaced Cory “CoCo Brother” Condrey who previously hosted a show in the timeslot.
