Houston, TX (Wednesday, September 18) EPM Music Group's release of gospel newcomer Keith Williams debut album TONE FOR WORSHIP debuts at #8 on Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart making it the highest CD chart debut of any new solo male gospel artist this year to date.

Lauded by one of gospel's top music critics Bob Marovich of The Black Gospel Blog, TONE FOR WORSHIP has received three out of five stars.

Keith Williams album release event was held in Washington, DC at the historic Howard Theatre. EPM Music Group sponsored the event in conjunction with Radio One's Praise 104.1 FM radio station. Praise 104.1 FM midday announcer Cheryl Jackson and singer Lil' Mo of TV One's R&B Divas reality show hosted the event.

Keith Williams promotional tour alongside Earnest Pugh and Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis has been successful, at concerts around the country and continues to hit major markets such as Chicago, Richmond, Oakland, Houston, Detroit, Baltimore and Memphis at the Memphis Gospel Music Festival among more.

Keith Williams is new to the national music scene but not new to the music industry. A former worship leader at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta where Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached and a seasoned behind-the-scenes veteran, hes served artists as diverse as Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Holliday, Patti LaBelle and his musical collaborator and business partner, Earnest Pugh. Hes now stepped down from his position at Ebenezer to focus on his solo career and his new role as head of A&R for Pughs EPM Music Group.
