Sister Trio VIRTUE Readies Re-Release of “TESTIMONY” Album on Feb 3rd / “You Are” Single Quickly Approaching Top 30
After an 8 year hiatus, Urban Contemporary sister trio VIRTUE stormed radio with their new smash single “You Are” in late 2014. Now, as the tune continues to win over listener’s months after its release, the talented trio readies its parent album in the form of TESTIMONY: RELOADED – a revamped version of their last studio release TESTIMONY. The album is available for pre-order now and will be available online and in stores on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 via Mixed Bag/eOne.
Originally released in 2006, the Dove Award – nominated album boasted the Top 5 Billboard hit single “Follow Me” among its inaugural set of tracks and appearances from Stellar and Dove Award winning songstress Martha Munizzi as well as production from Grammy® Award winning producer Fred Jerkins (Beyoncé , Destiny’s Child, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson). Its reloaded successor boasts two brand spanking new tracks including the group’s current radio single “You Are” which is quickly approaching Top 30 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and an un-released Fred Jerkins-produced gem “You Deserve.”
TESTIMONY: RELOADED will tide gospel music lovers over until spring 2015 when the trio’s sixth full-length studio album is due. As anticipation for the project grows among the group’s devoted fans, critics too have their eyes on Virtue as evidenced by Essence.com recently naming the group as one of its 16 Gospel Artists to Watch Closely in 2015.
