Desmond Pringle Brings James Cleveland Back!

Well, not physically, but on his latest CD, 'Be Still', the Chicago-based gospel crooner manipulates the mixing board to sing a duet with the late King James, just as Natalie sang "Unforgettable" with her father Nat, and Hank Williams, Jr. duetted with his father Hank, Sr. on one of the latter's unreleased acetates.

The song Pringle selects for his otherworldly duet is James' "Jesus is the Best Thing," a reading of the Jim Weatherly composition originally recorded by Gladys Knight as "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me" but with more sacred covers than secular by this point. The scratchy vinyl backdrop provides the appropriate context to the interpolation of James' shout-inducing singing and Desmond's smoky baritone.

"Jesus is the Best Thing" is being made available as a free mp3 download

"'Jesus is the Best Thing' is a standout track from Desmond Pringle's eye-opening 'Be Still' album. In this song, Desmond trades vocals with the legendary James Cleveland and creates a powerful masterpiece. Interspersed with static and live crowd noise, the song starts off in intriguing fashion. When the dueling vocals kick in, the awe-inspiring experience is taken to a whole different level. This is gospel music at its finest; this is over six minutes of pure bliss!" - Eric Hartline, MusicDish

Having Optimism, Pursuing Expectations

The message is simple: that anything is possible to the one who believes! The message is that this is NOT true for a select few, but for you... for everyone. Hope is what necessitates the measure of faith that God has dealt to every man & woman. The message of hope is a word in season. Hope is a divine allotment to you for the purpose of maximizing your life!

The assignment is to get the message out to as many people as possible. We are intentional about getting the message downloaded in hearts and encoded in minds. Embracing the premise that, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," we are committed to filling the earth with a lot of HOPEFUL people. Desparate days demand us to actively participate rather than passively spectate in life! Hope's precious gift is to yield manifold fruit.

This campaign is to eradicate lethargy. It's designed to be the catalyst that gets people engaged! First to get them to embrace the concept, reality, and truth of the message. Predicated upon the message and the mission "Believe" is an action word. In other words, if you believe the building is on fire, you move towards the exit. If you believe that the bank is going under with all of your money in it, you immediately make a withdrawal.

Urgency! Not anxiety, but urgency. Not "I'll get to it later," but NOW! Faith is NOW! Now faith makes evident, real and tangible the things HOPED for. Simply put, this is a movement to get people stepping and God has obligated himself to order our steps!

Lyrics for "Hope Is Born"

-1st Verse-
We’ve already won
Regardless of the outcome
Let’s fully embrace
This change that has taken place
Boys and girls ‘round the world
Can finally see endless possibilities
So many weary years and silent tears
Now we’ve given birth
To a great new time on earth

Hope is born
My heart is happy cause
Hope’s no longer deferred
Hope is born
Now the dream’s no longer deterred

-2nd Verse-
If you have a dream
You have every reason
To capture and hold on to the spirit of this season
Season’s bright time is right
Don’t let this moment pass you by
This time hope didn’t die in the womb
Keep it alive in your heart make room

Hope is born
It’s no longer delayed, it’s not just on the way
But it’s here today!
Hope is born
I’m so excited my faith has been ignited
Now the dream’s no longer deterred

Hope, hope
Hope is color blind
Hope, hope
And it transcends party lines
The ceiling has been shattered
Millions of pieces have been scattered
It’s all in the air
And in this kind of atmosphere
Anything is possible
If you believe nothing’s impossible

Hope is born
Not only in the white house
Hope is born
But in my house
In your house too
What you’re gonna do since hope is?
Hope is born
Get off the sideline
Hope is born
Jump into your life

Free Gospel/Soul MP3 from Desmond Pringle

Desmond Pringle - "Just A Closer Walk With Thee feat. Shirley Caesar" [Be Still]

"'Just a Closer Walk With Thee' by Desmond Pringle is a joyful hymn that features the Grammy-nominated artist singing back-and-forth with gospel legend Shirley Caesar. Both artists have powerful voices that beckon everyone to take heed to the song's influential lyrics. The song has a warm feel to it and while the instrumentation is impressive, it is the dueling vocals that steals the show here. 'Just a Closer Walk With Thee' is an incredible highlight from Desmond's inspirational album, 'Be Still'." Eric Hartline, MusicDish
