Stellar Award nominated and BMI Award winning songwriter, music director and producer Derrick Starks kicks the holiday season into high gear with Wonderful, the first single from the highly-anticipated recording of the DStarks Family and Friends Choir.
"Can I just tell you that this year's Family and Friends Music and Ministry conference was a phenomenal experience!", Starks stated. "People came from around the country and from overseas to be a part of Family and Friends. God favored us to have some of the world's finest creatives like David Bratton and J Drew Sheard III all together in one setting to share of their knowledge with us during the power sessions, I mean to have the one and only Dr. Hart Ramsey to speak words of wisdom and knowledge to us was just rich. The recording was an experience of heaven on earth. I didn't want this holiday season to pass without giving a preview of what's to come, and Wonderful is just enough to whet your appetite. The prophet Isaiah foretold of the Savior's birth and declared, his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace (that is enough to praise God for). Matthew comes to enhance Isaiah's words with she shall bring forth a son and thou shall call his name JESUS. This song musically illustrates Isaiah 9:6 and is a great addition to the modern Christmas time music."
The blessings continue to flow as the music of Derrick Starks makes an impact on people around the nation. Hang On, the hit single from the Billboard chart topping GEI Live album featuring Kierra Sheard and the Greater Emmanuel Institutional Mass Choir continues its reign on the radio & digital downloads charts. The video for Hang On has now amassed over 2.5 million YouTube views and the song will be a featured track on the ever-popular WOW Gospel series for 2018.
DStarks Family and Friends Choir will debut their new single on Saturday, December 9th at the annual Christmas Concert Celebration of the iconic and legendary Thomas Whitfield Chorale in Detroit. The single heads to iTunes and Amazon for download within the coming week.
