Steve Dalton & The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte are starting off a new decade with a musical message centered around God's love, they are healing the brokenhearted and helping the wounded soul using the power of music. The three-time Gospel Image Award winner and nominee for Rhythm of Gospel Awards, Prayze Factor People's Choice Awards and Queen City Music Awards has released a brand new inspirational song entitled "God Is Love." The up-tempo track is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and other digital media outlets and on the group's website.
Dalton, the group's leader, penned the song because he wanted to remind people of the simple message of salvation: God is Love. Steve says, "Sometimes I feel that we make a relationship with God complicated; we can make it difficult for people to enter the Kingdom because of the rules we impose. The first thing that God wants us to do is to get them in the door. Then, He will do the cleaning up. As I started to think about that, a melody and lyrics just started coming to me and the end result was the song, "God Is Love."
In addition to releasing the brand new single, which will also be serviced to Gospel music radio, the ensemble has dropped a complementary music video. Showcasing several real-life situations, the video reminds the viewer of the overarching reach of the love of God. Each story recounted is one that has touched members of the group personally. The concept music video, directed by Juan Ossa of SDM Productions, cleverly takes on issues like depression, suicide, bulimia, prostitution and an unexpected pregnancy and shows how the love of God is the cure for each obstacle.
The bouncy, uplifting single is the first song out of the gate from an upcoming EP, The Introduction. The 2020 release will include songs that the group has been ministering on the road such as "All The Glory," "Our God," "So Free," "I Win" and "How Great Is Our God." The singing aggregation dropped their first CD, Address Change: God's Great Relocation Music Project, in 2006 which positioned them as deliverers of "vertical music." Since that time, they have released several singles, including their original Christmas song, "Jesus Christ Is Born." Putting the finishing touches on the new project, the ensemble is excited to share songs that some of their fans have yet to experience.
