A year after he released his last album 'I Am Healed', gospel artiste Brotha George is gearing up for the release of his latest work, 'Transition', which is set for release tomorrow in New York.
The launch is expected to be a spectacular affair featuring several pastors from the New York area, including former secular dancehall star Pastor Shelly Thunder.
Brotha George, born George Wright, was born in Jamaica but grew up in the United States. The younger brother of Winston Wright of the group Meditations, George, since he converted to Christianity less than a decade ago, has dedicated himself to producing music that targets the youth, hoping to steer them away from the pitfalls of modern society.
"The common message throughout the album is to minister to people from all walks of life," he said. "The goal is to spread the message of love. One of my core concerns in this world is the state of the youth in our culture. They currently seem to lack direction or focus. When I look back, I see much of myself in these youth."
He thanked God for his mother and how she raised him without a father in the home and also for rescuing him from certain destruction.
Transition, produced and arranged by Sidney Mills of Steel Pulse fame and Cegrica Hamilton, features 12 inspirational songs and two remixes including Jehovah, Idol Worshiper, Tek It Out and Can't Steal My Joy. It also features the talent of musicians like Sly Dunbar, Dwight Pickney, Andrew McIntyre, Franklyn 'Bubbler' Waul, Donovan McKitty, Donald 'Pee Wee' Walters, Jerry Johnson, and Damion (Damdrumz.)
Unlike in the past, Wright does not have a favourite on this album because all of them speak to him in different ways but with equal impact. "I feel that I can relate to all the songs on the album whether based on life experiences, or on the culture I live in and grew up in," he said.
