Ricky Dillard has enjoyed a triumphant, history-making year that will go down in record books both literally and figuratively. In June 2014, Light Records released Dillard’s ninth album, AMAZING. The live set marks the 25th anniversary of his notable choir, the New Generation Chorale, and is a sonic masterpiece that has been at the top of the charts since its debut.  The album’s first single – the title track, “Amazing” – just became the longest running song at Gospel radio this decade, with a phenomenal 25 weeks in the #1 slot. This enormous accomplishment was instrumental in garnering Dillard a Grammy nomination for Best Gospel Album – his third nomination for a Grammy Award. Additionally, Ricky Dillard & New G is named as 2014’s Top Gospel Duo/Group in the year-end issue of Billboard Magazine (on stands December 12). Checkout our latest interview with Ricky now.

Grammy, Stellar, and Dove-Award nominated singer Anita Wilson keeps Urban Contemporary music alight with her unparalleled fusion of Gospel and Soul music.  First finding recognition as part of the Grammy-award nominated ensemble Donald Lawrence & Co., Wilson’s beeline to the solo stage – via her debut album Worship Soul– came as a celebrated breakthrough.  Recognized by the New York Times’ Ben Ratliff as one of “2012’s top ten albums” across all genres, Worship Soul wielded the memorable hits “Jesus Will” and “Speechless” and introduced the masses to Wilson as a new frontrunner for Urban Contemporary Gospel.

Her sophomore album, VINTAGE WORSHIP, follows in its predecessor’s stead by unveiling a collection of masterfully crafted tunes with ingredients of classic gospel, funk, soul, pop, and R&B. Citing gospel greats such as The Hawkins, The Clark Sisters and The Winans as musical influences for the album, Wilson also drew from a well of R&B/Soul favorites like Eddie Kendricks, Lalah Hathaway, Chaka Khan, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Evelyn Champagne King and many more to create a melting pot of sounds.

Before we went out of 2014 in-style, Anita stopped by our radio show with David Duane to catch up with him briefly. Not only was it a catch up session but it was call of “celebrate” for Anita’s recent Grammy nomination. Take a listen now !
