Award-winning, international Gospel Artist Chevelle Franklyn has released her latest worship single and music video, “Go In Your Strength,” today for streaming and download on all major digital platforms. To encourage listeners coping with the global COVID-19 pandemic, Franklyn also released a bonus track, “iPrevail” on March 25. The moving worship songs offer fans a preview of her highly-anticipated full-length album, South Wind Vol. 1, expected for release later in 2020.
"Go In Your Strength" is an anthem for the ages, a mid-tempo inspirational song created to encourage believers and non-believers around the globe to press on through every trial. The entire South Wind Vol. 1 album was written and recorded during the short span of three weeks in South Africa and co-produced with Nqubeko Mbatha and Mojalefa Mjakes Thebe. Highlights of the upcoming album include a prominent feature from Ntokozo Mbambo, one of Africa's leading worship leaders, and a worship track sung by Franklyn in the African indigenous language of Zulu.
“I can’t wait for the world to hear South Wind Vol. 1. It’s a dream come true. I’ve wanted to do this for so many years. I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right set of people,” said Franklyn of her new project. “The album is total worship. Like my other albums, it was about testimonies but this one focuses on worshipping God. It’s pointing just to Him,” she expressed.
The globally-recognized worship leader has toured around the world for more than three decades, performing on stages in the United Kingdom, Asia, Europe, the United States, Australia, and across the continent of Africa. She has collaborated with chart-topping artists like Donnie McClurkin, Israel Houghton, Micah Stampley and Lionel Petersen to name a few. Franklyn was catapulted into musical success as a teenager, singing on the chart-topping hit “Mr. Loverman” with Shabba Ranks. She made headlines in 1998 when she went off-script from her scheduled performance of her international hit song with Beenie Man, “Dancehall Queen”, and instead declared a new conviction to record and sing Gospel music exclusively. She sealed her declaration with a rousing performance of Kirk Franklin’s “Silver and Gold,” and has been testifying for Christ ever since.
