August 14, 2014 (New York, NY) -- Following the release of his new album, Forever Yours, Smokie Norful continues his week of appearances and performances.

Considered one of his strongest albums to date, Norful actively promoted the project at high-profile events with performances in New York, Atlanta and in Memphis at a special concert for the St. Jude's Children's Hospital. He made several television appearances as well including 'Good Day NY,' 'Arise 360,' 'NewsOne Now,' and will be featured on TBN "Praise The Lord" on Tuesday, August 19th. The show airs nationally on TBN networks at 10pm EST / 7pm PST.

Spurred on by his Top 5 radio single, "No Greater Love," Norful also dominated radio this week including a live performance on the Tom Joyner Morning show; interviews with The Rickey Smiley Show, The James Fortune Radio Show and The Yolanda Adams Morning Show. In addition, Smokie's exclusive live performance on Sirius XM PRAISE channel will air today.

Here's what people are saying:
"Quite easily one of the best balladeers in Gospel music, Smokie Norful makes an impressive showing on 'Forever Yours.'
"This is not a twitter like of an album that is pithy in its content and forgettable in terms of melody. Rather, like a well crafted love letter, it needs to be heard again and again. -
Fans can look forward to strong ballads, like the album's lead single, "No Greater Love," and "I Need A Word," a piano-driven, passionate ballad that is incredibly reminiscent of Norful's career-defining "I Need You Now." -

Forever Yours in stores and on line now. For more information check out
