Gospel music legend Paul Porter is teaming up some of music industry's biggest names such as American Idol winner Ruben Studdard, Smokie Norful, Rance Allen, Erica Campbell (Mary Mary) and Le'Andria Johnson for his new release "F.R.E.E." This new album drops on September 2, 2014. Lead single "I Want To Know What Love Is" (feat. Ruben Studdard and Le'Andria Johnson) is already impacting gospel radio since May 12.
For nearly three decades, Paul Porter has endeared himself to Gospel music lovers around the world. As the lead vocalist of the legendary group The Christianaires, he earned numerous nominations and awards---including GRAMMY®, Dove, and Stellar awards---and was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
The upcoming ten-song project also titled F.R.E.E. is crafted by the Grammy Awarding winning production duo producers Blac Elvis (Beyoncé, Jamie Fox, Fergie) and songwriter Harold Lilly (Alicia Keys, Ruben Studdard, Beyoncé). While the project has a more urban touch, the songs are filled with Porter's inspired messages and unmistakable vocals.
