Bishop Leonard Scott releases "Keep Hymns Alive"
Bishop Leonard Scott, a legend in traditional gospel music circles, has sprinkled hymns throughout his contemporary gospel albums for over 40 years, and Keep Hymns Alive is his newest set of church standards.
Keep Hymns Alive is a nine-song showcase of well-worn songs that have earned a fresh but familiar reprise. The good Bishop leans in heavy with old soul millennials, guest vocalist such as Ruth La’Ontra, Kelontae Gavin, a new group, Thomas & The Situation, along with the dynamic talents of organist Bishop C. Shawn Tyson.
In a world of programmed beats and electronic drum machines, Keep Hymns Alive is a reminder of how some of the most poignant sounds are the simple ones.
