Tasha Cobbs Leonard – Hymns (Mp3)

The largest gospel album of the year, “HYMNS (Live),” by GRAMMY, Billboard Music, Stellar, and Dove Award-winning artist and composer Tasha Cobbs Leonard, is released today via Motown Gospel. Leonard’s astonishing new work has a timeless quality that is yet warmly familiar and shockingly new.

The recording is a larger-than-life reinterpretation of traditional hymns of love and grace that speaks to our contemporary world while also extending far beyond it. It was made in front of a live audience of more than 3,000 at The Greenwood Oasis on the campus of New Life Southeast in Chicago. The compositions are expansive and cinematic, drawing on gospel, praise, and even traces of country, pop, and R&B, and they consistently exude an unmistakable feeling of pleasure and community. With notable guests like Jennifer Hudson, Kierra Sheard, The Walls Group, Ricky Dillard, and even Mary Mary—who hasn’t put out music in over five years—HYMNS covers every aspect of gospel brilliance.

“I want there to be an overwhelming sense of God’s love, mercy, and grace toward us in these songs,” says Tasha Cobbs Leonard. “I want to remind everyone that, despite our feelings of undeservingness, He sees us and He views us as the apple of His eye. We have a dependable companion and parent in God through the highs and lows.

Prior to the release of HYMNS, Tasha Cobbs Leonard made an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show to promote and talk about her new album. She gave an incredible rendition of “The Church I Grew Up In” during her appearance that caused Tamron to break down in tears and praise. Cobbs Leonard was joined by her husband, Kenneth, who had a sincere discussion with Hall about finding meaning and clinging to religion.

Tasha Cobbs Leonard made her Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this week for an emotionally stirring three-song performance, adding to an already thrilling release. Her 2017 smash “You Know My Name,” the 2013 worldwide hit “Break Every Chain,” and the song from her recently released album “The Church I Grew Up In” were all on the soul-stirring playlist.

At the 2018 Dove Awards, Tasha Cobbs Leonard received two nominations: Contemporary Gospel Recorded Song of the Year for her hymn of hope and endurance, “Gotta Believe,” and Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for her song, “Lift Every Voice.” She first released “Gotta Believe” as a part of the NPR Morning Edition Song Project, a program started during lockdown to provide musicians a platform to create and perform original music that reflected the times. Tasha discussed some of her own problems, such as losing relatives and friends to the COVID epidemic, in an interview about the song’s inspiration. Cobbs Leonard is a “Gospel Sensation,” according to NPR.
