Center Sound Records is excited to announce the debut single release from Contemporary Christian group New Covenant. The track, Unredeemed, is available now on iTunes, Amazon, and most other digital service providers. The track will be included in the group’s debut album release, which will be produced by Center Sound’s Craig Brandwynne for release later this year.
For their debut single the group chose to cover a song from Selah, whose music has long inspired New Covenant, with their tight harmonies and moving lyrics. Says Angela Millenbaugh, “Unredeemed was one of many songs that really resonated with us as the words seem to reach across boundaries and in essence say that God never wastes a hurt.”
The Gospel group, New Covenant, formed in the Fall of 2001, originates out of Wendell, North Carolina. Each singer met at Central Baptist Church and is also a member which brings a strong continuity among the group. They bring to the stage a blend of Contemporary Christian, Praise and Worship, and Southern Gospel and have also been known to take their audience through a nostalgic journey of 50’s and 60’s Oldies music from time to time. The stage is filled with laughter, energy and a positive message.
New Covenant is comprised of singers, Larry Johnson (Tenor), Sherry Gammon (Alto), Glenn Alford (Tenor), Joanna King (Soprano), Jeremy Gamble (Bass) and Angela Millenbaugh (Alto). Each member has the versatility of singing various vocal parts and together, brings a casual yet spirited performance in a variety of musical venues. Collectively, the singers bring an extensive background and experience in the music arena. From trios, quartets and choirs to professional bands, in addition to instrumental, songwriting, radio and studio work, each member brings a special flavor of talent that enhances their overall essence as a performing group. Roots run deep and wide as the group’s individual members originate everywhere from Central and Eastern, North Carolina, Central Alabama, Texas, and across the Atlantic in Great Britain.
New Covenant’s performance opportunities have been as diverse as where they originate! These range from invitations to perform in the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion to ministering in the streets of Baltimore. From ushering in the Christmas season up in Blowing Rock, North Carolina to down where the tide rolls deep in Alabama, they continue to expand their territory from the mountains to the coast.
While continuing their weekly engagement with their congregation in praise and worship, reaching out to the community has become a solid belief among the group members. They bring joy and smiles that span from the younger to the older generations through a monthly ministry at Carillon Assisted Living in Knightdale, NC. Partnering with the volunteers, staff, kids and their families at the Ronald McDonald House in Chapel Hill has become a favorite of the group members as well.
New Covenant may deliver a mix of familiar music from some of the industry’s favorite musical genres in a style all their own but they never forget the true “Source” of their inspiration. Hebrews 8 was embraced as the official scripture to represent their group name, their purpose and their reason to celebrate, in song, a “newness of life”. The crimson color of the cross within the New Covenant logo is a reminder of the ultimate and final sacrifice made to solidify God’s promises that outlive any other. The mission of this group is to bring the truth of God’s love, the eternal hope found through their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and joy in the hearts of those who are hurting and hungry for His divine peace… all through the healing power of music. The calling is real, the message is pure and the passion is bold. Come just as you are and celebrate with New Covenant!
