Sam Kendrick's Nation of Holiness
This year has brought the gospel world some great talent, and it
continues with the debut release from Sam Kendrick’s Nation
of Holiness. This youth choir is headed by
writer/arranger/producer Sam Kendrick, best known for
his work with Nujoi and William Becton.
The D.C. native enters the arena with a new project that
possesses a distinctively urban edge and presents a message
of celebration, hope, and encouragement. Producer: Sam Kendricks
album release date: December, 1998
The project starts off with a hard urban groove titled “God
is Good”. This serves as the first radio single, and
is slated to be a definite hit amongst the urban audience.
Other memorable urban hits include “Spread God’s Love” and
“Don’t Miss This Chance”. Kendrick also delivers with slick
urban slow jams such as “Work While It’s Day” and “Heavenly
Host” which bears a resemblance to Mary J. Blige’s “Share
While the album has a specific urban target, Kendrick
remains versatile by implementing several urban praise
songs including “Lord Take Me Higher”, “That’s What Jesus
Is To Me”, and “Come With Me”, which are sure to weave
their way into churches around the country. Kendrick
also adds a special dedication titled “I’ll Never Forget”, which
is a heartfelt memorial to his mother.
In all, this 13-track, highly-focused project puts
Kendrick and Nation of Holiness on the map as one of
the premiere youth choirs in the Gospel industry today.
