(Brooklyn, NY)--The six-time Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir will offer a free, live stream of the world premiere concert of its new CD, Pray, on Sunday, February 8 beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern. The new CD releases via Provident Distribution on February 10, 2015. Pray is the choir's 29th recording and features fourteen new songs, twelve of which were co-written by Brooklyn Tabernacle's worship and band leader, Freddy Washington.

"I think this CD has something for everyone," says Washington. "It’s a great blend of old and new. There are songs that I think are very new for the choir stylistically, but there are also songs that are reminiscent of the classics that Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir has been known for down through their many years of ministry."

Since its inception over 40 years ago when the Choir began with only nine members, the choir director, Carol Cymbala, has never read music – though she has written numerous hit songs—and the choir has never used charts. The 300-voice choir is a blend of ethnic and economic backgrounds, with members ranging from lawyers and doctors to former drug addicts.

“While the new Pray CD has an eclectic mix of songs,” says Cymbala, “it is also reminiscent of the traditional Brooklyn Tabernacle sound. Beyond the songs, I really believe that it is very important that the members of our choir – or any choir-- should have a heart for God and a heart for ministry. Ultimately, we need to focus on seeing lives changed through the power of the Gospel in song.”

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir has performed at major music venues such as Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, and Madison Square Garden. Their accolades include six Grammy Awards, seven Dove Awards (Gospel Music’s Grammy equivalent), two #1 Billboard charting CDs and over four million albums sold. The choir sang “The Battle Hymn of The Republic” at President Obama’s second inauguration ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to a worldwide television audience of over a billion people. The Choir has performed on various national TV shows including Good Morning America and Fox and Friends, among others. Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir was featured on the cover of The New York Times and highlighted in Time Magazine. The choir’s previous CD, Love Lead the Way, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel album chart last year. To view the concert on Sunday, February 8, visit:
