6/8/2011 - Trin-i-tee 5:7's New CD, Angel and Chanelle Debuts at #1
GRAMMY® Award nominated, Dove Award and StellarAward winning Trin-i-tee 5:7 release their first CD as a duo to stellar reviews. Angel & Chanelle debuts at #1 on both Billboard’s Top Gospel Album chart and the Top Christian/Gospel Album chart. The CD also enters at #2 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop Album chart, #5 on the Independent chart and #19 on the Billboard 200. Angel and Chanelle marks their 7th recording to date. The project features two versions—the Standard CD, which includes 12 songs, and the Deluxe CD, which features 17 songs.
The duo’s hit single, “Over and Over” remains in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Song chart, entering this week at #7, with a cumulative listening audience of 52 million to date. And the second single, “Heaven Hear My Heart,” is steadily approaching the Top 30 at UAC radio. Music videos for “Over and Over” and “Heaven Hear My Heart” are playing on international, national, regional and local video outlets everywhere. “Over and Over” premiered on GMC and GMCTV.com and “Heaven Hear My Heart” premiered on BET’s 106 and Park. Both videos are also available on Music Choice as well as other Internet outlets, including Yahoo Music Video, ESSENCE.com, BET.com, CentricTV.com and numerous others.
On Saturday, June 11, at 6:00 p.m. CST, the duo will perform at the Apple store in
Chicago as part of the retail giant’s Black Music Month series. The store is located at 679North Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611.
Lauded by critics, Angel and Chanelle received five of five stars from The Black Gospel Blog. “The group still turns out the experimental, envelope-pushing music that fans have come to know and love about them,” notes Robert Marovich.
“With a renewed commitment to being fearless in their artistry and a fresh collection of songs filled with two-part harmony, Trin-i-tee 5:7 is ushering in a new season,” states Lindsay Williams of GMCTV.com. “Angel and Chanelle, doesn’t miss a beat. The voices are so lush. Angel and Chanelle re-establishes Trin-i-tee 5:7’s position in the industry and charts their new course as a party of two.”
“Angel and Chanelle reflects the two original members' newfound spiritual and artistic
freedom with modern worship inspirations, surprising theatrical rock, and plenty of stylish urban programs” states Andrew Greer of Christianity Today. “Seventeen songs…but the invigorating duet keeps it fresh with their hip vocals.”
“Angel and Chanelle is a compilation of an impressive 17 tunes that range from the semi traditional to the very contemporary” says music reviewer Arnell Pharr of Rolling Out magazine. “What I appreciate most about this pair’s music is that they actually have lyrics —words that speak, that say something to the hearts and minds of people.”
Gospel music journalist Gerald Jones elaborates, “Trin-i-tee 5:7 are moving forward. This is by far their best project to date.” Dominique of 1800Gospel.com adds, “I love it when I get a gospel music CD I can play straight through without skipping. These ladies can sing. They have not missed a beat.”
The New Orleans natives are wrapping up their 25 city promo tour, which included several national and local radio and television appearances: 106 & Park, The Mo’Nique Show, TBN, two JCTV’s 1 Music Square specials, Bobby Jones in New Orleans, SIRIUS XM Satellite concert series, and church and retail visits, as well as other special events, including a special benefit concert with the American Heart Association at the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York City.
