Early 2015 will prove itself a late Christmas for gospel music fans.  For, not only should they expect releases from the likes of big names like Jason Nelson, Dorinda Clark Cole, Karen Clark Sheard, Richard Smallwood, and more, now they can expect to add Israel Houghton & New Breed‘s ‘Covered: Alive in Asia’ scheduled for a March 2015 release.

The latest offering lifted from the set comes in the form of ‘How Awesome Is Our God,’ featuring Grammy winning gospel diva Yolanda Adams.

“How Awesome Is Our God“ is a simple anthem of His amazing and overwhelming  love for us. It also marks a ‘bucket list’ moment for me personally to have the incomparable Yolanda Adams singing with us on this song. I pray it moves you as it did tens of thousands of people in these cities. – Israel Houghton
