Atlanta, GA (April 27, 2011) ----- One of the nation’s fastest growing worship centers, Victory World Church is on an incredible growth track and is internationally active through missions, leadership training and pastoral mentorships. Now Victory World Church will continue this outreach through the power of music with this mission being embraced through the launch of Victory World Music. Senior Pastors Dennis & Colleen Rouse announced today that the new music ministry’s debut project is Shake Heaven, which is spearheaded by R&B legend Montell Jordan, worship pastor at Victory World Church. The project will be the church’s first studio album with the entire worship team and the title track is the first single that spotlights a duet with Dove nominated recording artist, Beckah Shae and Jordan. The song will be going for adds at radio in mid-May and will be promoted by industry vet, Chris Chicago. The CD is scheduled for release in late August.
“Victory World Church is a place where worship is a lifestyle, therefore the music that comes from here is a reflection of the lives that people are living,” says Jordan. “My only objective at Victory and with this project is to create an atmosphere of worship where God truly inhabits the praises of His people.”
“Since the very beginning of our church, we’ve always felt that God would open doors of worship that would cross generational and cultural barriers,” says Dennis Rouse, Senior Pastor “and through Montell’s leadership, we’re seeing that happen with more than 105 nationalities coming together in a worship experience each weekend.”
Montell Jordan brings his seventeen years of music business expertise to Shake Heaven, as Jordan was one of the leading R&B artists and producers from 1994 to 2010, when he left the industry to join Victory World Church’s worship ministry. Jordan released seven albums between his two record labels, Def Soul and Koch Records, and his mega-hit “This Is How We Do It,” garnered one Grammy nomination and two MTV award nominations. Jordan produced such high-profile acts as Deborah Cox, Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Boyz II Men, Christina Milian, 98 Degrees, Sisqo’, Dru Hill, and appeared in such films as The Fighting Temptations, The Nutty Professor, and Standing In The Shadows Of Motown. He was born in Los Angeles and graduated from Pepperdine University.
