Grammy Award winning songwriter, producer and worship leader Israel Houghton has had his dream come true. He has finally teamed up with Gospel music's legend Yolanda Adams for what seems like a match made in heaven!
Adams joins Houghton on the new Israel & New Breed song "How Awesome is Our God" from the new Israel & New Breed album "Covered: Alive in Asia" that will be out in March 2015. Houghton says working with Adams was a dream come true."It's a bucket list accomplishment for me" he said. I've always wanted to sing with Yolanda!"
Israel Houghton is known for injecting contemporary gospel and worship with a blazing energy that has made him among the most influential tastemakers in his field. As a singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and worship leader, he has created a canon of songs that have become standards in houses of faith around the globe. He has accomplished this largely as the leader of "Israel and New Breed," a Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award-winning musical ensemble and ministry organization that has amassed gold-selling albums and critical platitudes reserved for the best of the best.
Over the past decade, Israel has amassed a legion of fans while blasting down musical barriers, and drawing together people of all races, ages and cultures through worship. He has been fittingly graced with 2 Gold-selling albums, 6 Dove Awards, 2 Stellar Awards, a Soul Train Award, and 3 Grammy® Awards - one for "Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album" for The Power of One, one for "Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album" for A Deeper Level and one for "Best Traditional Gospel Album" for Alive In South Africa. Ironically, there is very little that is "traditional" about the way Israel approaches music and ministry, defying categorization with an ease that other artists envy
