Brooklyn, NY. Spring’s coming! And, so is some foot-stomping new music! Lady Peachena & the famed Late Show’s Gospel Choir should reach a multitude of new fans with their new CD, “Jesus Lives in Me,” which was released by Platinum Peachtree Records, (her label) earlier this month with a rocking CD Release Celebration Concert at The Shrine World Music Venue, in Harlem, New York.

Lady Peachena started off this inspirational album paying homage to Gospel’s Queen, Mahalia Jackson, singing three of her biggest hits, “It Is No Secret,” “I Found theAnswer,” & “How I Got Over,” with The Late Show’s Gospel Choir supplying sweet harmonies in the background.

There’s something for everybody on this album; the traditional hymns for the older crowd, and rhythmic upbeat Urban-Gospel songs for the younger fans. Lady Peachena’s powerful voice soars triumphantly as she pours out raw soul over the next…

The Late Show’s Gospel Choir’s New CD

                                                                      March 13, 2017

Brooklyn, NY. Spring’s coming! And, so is some foot-stomping new music! Lady Peachena & the famed Late Show’s Gospel Choir should reach a multitude of new fans with their new CD, “Jesus Lives in Me,” which was released by Platinum Peachtree Records, (her label) earlier this month with a rocking CD Release Celebration Concert at The Shrine World Music Venue, in Harlem, New York.

Lady Peachena started off this inspirational album paying homage to Gospel’s Queen, Mahalia Jackson, singing three of her biggest hits, “It Is No Secret,” “I Found the Answer,” & “How I Got Over,” with The Late Show’s Gospel Choir supplying sweet harmonies in the background.

There’s something for everybody on this album; the traditional hymns for the older crowd, and rhythmic upbeat Urban-Gospel songs for the younger fans. Lady Peachena’s powerful voice soars triumphantly as she pours out raw soul over the next six songs, five of which she co-wrote with three known musicians in the New York-New Jersey Gospel community. Without a doubt, the future smash hit is the title song, “Jesus Lives in Me,” a perfect Easter song and a driving Funk-Gospel rocker that she wrote with Joeworn Martin, keyboardist & former member of LFT’s Levites Band. Joeworn wrote “Lift Him Up”for Bishop Hezekiah Walker’s Grammy-winning Love Fellowship Choir. With another LFT Levite band member, bassist Dwayne Gott, she composed the Sunday morning church-anthem, “Watch God Work,” a song that’s reminiscent of her tenure with the Institutional Radio Choir.

Since 1997 Lady Peachena’s been a member of Love Fellowship Tabernacle of Brooklyn, NY, where the renowned Bishop Hezekiah Walker is senior pastor. She’s an original member of the church’s Rhema Choir, as well as a member of LFT’s Celebration Choir, and the Grammy-winning Love Fellowship Choir. Over the years this Grammy-nominated songwriter has produced 5 solo albums, 3 children’s choir albums, and this is her second production of The Late Show’s Gospel Choir. All of these albums are available on www.cdbaby.com, www.amazon.com, www.itunes.com, and other music outlets on the Internet.

Something else wonderful has happened this year, Gospel great Cece Winans recorded Lady Peachena’s Grammy-nominated song, “Dancing In The Spirit”(track 8) on her “Let Them Fall in Love” Top 10 Gospel album on the Curb/Pure Springs label. “I’m so excited that she chose my song. Bishop Hezekiah Walker told me that she wanted to record it about a year ago, and I sent her my blessings. She sounds fantastic singing it too,” said Lady Peachena. (“Dancing In The Spirit” was a smash hit when it was recorded 29 years ago by the late Ron Winans & his Family & Friends Choir with Bishop Marvin Winans singing the lead).

A few years ago, this Gospel Diva reunited with longtime bandmate, Gregg Fitz, former keyboardist-singer with funk-rock band, Quazar, (she was one of the lead singers), in 1977 & 78, and they started writing and recording songs together. “Let’s Celebrate” & “Work Your Faith,” two funky Gospel/Hip Hop flavored tunes were two of the fruits of their labor. “Many People Don’t Pray” is a somber ballad that chronicles today’s society with so many disenchanted people so caught up with the world’s chaotic problems that they’ve stopped going to church.

Longtime friend & assistant choir director, Deborah Malone Sargeant, helped out with most of the soulful vocal arrangements for the choir. “Jesus Lives in Me” is now available at: www.cdbaby.com/cd/ladypchoir7. For bookings of The Late Show’s Gospel Choir visit their website at: www.lateshowsgospelchoir.com. In essence, you’re guaranteed to find yourself humming and singing along to the beat of every song on this spirit-filled project. Enjoy yourself!

January 29, 2009

The electrifying show, “THE GREAT DIVAS OF GOSPEL,” will return to Harlem’s world-famous COTTON CLUB, located at 656 W. 125th Street, for four special performances in honor of Women’s History Month in March on Wednesdays, March 4th, 11th, 18th, & 25th, ’09, at 7:30 p.m.

“THE GREAT DIVAS OF GOSPEL,” pays a nostalgic salute to Gospel’s female pioneers such as: The Roberta Martin Singers, The Clara Ward Singers, The Famous Davis Sisters, Marion Williams & The Stars of Faith, The Famous Caravans, The Roberta Martin Singers, Dorothy Love Coates & The Harmonettes, and the undisputed Queen of Gospel, Mahalia Jackson. Their incredible lives are re-visited through drama and song.  Most importantly, these grand divas were a vital part of the Golden Era of Gospel Music from 1945 to 1960. Their outstanding contributions can not be ignored, for they laid down a solid foundation for today’s singers.

“THE GREAT DIVAS OF GOSPEL,” is a MUST-SEE show that should be on Broadway! It’s a glorious celebration of traditional Gospel Music that you’ll find yourself singing along with. It’s educational! It’s a moving history lesson! And a musical treat that you can bring your whole family to see and enjoy. No profanity! Just heavenly singing!

The impressive cast includes Lady Peachena, the show’s playwright, who gives a stunning portrayal of Mahalia Jackson, plus Betty Cooks, Debbie Sargeant, Nadine Simmons, & Carol Hawthorne.  Since the cast is celebrating their 16th year anniversary,  they’ve decided to add a special segment to the show where they’ll honor some living legends. So the special guest for the March 4th show will be Dr. Joyce Taylor. The honoree for the March 11th Show will be Evangelist Gloria White of Bridgeport, CT.  The March 18th Show will spotlight Evang. Doreen Figueroa of New Life Tabernacle of Brooklyn.  All of these phenomenal singers have been singing Gospel music for more than 30 years, and they were the featured vocalists of the renowned Institutional Radio Choir of Brooklyn, NY.  Fans are encouraged to bring flowers, and gifts of love to these wonderful ladies of song. Don’t wait until the last moment to get tickets, because this once-in-a-lifetime event promises to be an early sellout.  A delicious all-you-can-eat soul food buffet dinner will be served before each show begins. Get your tickets now online at: www.divasofgospel.eventbrite.com, For group sales, more info, or to book this fabulous show, call 718-235-0350.
