The Cayman Islands Gospel Queen Michelle T who is wrapping up her three months promotional tour of the USA has recently been informed that her new CD "Blessings All Over Me" will be submitted for the 62nd Grammy Awards consideration.
Her new CD was released online March 1st, 2019 by VPAL Records one of the largest distributors of reggae music in the world. Yard Man Music CEO Chris Durrant, Michelle T’s husband & manager has signed distribution contract with VPAL for Michelle T both gospel CDs.
The first was "Here Is My Praise" which was released back in 2016. Both CDs are available on iTunes, Amazon music and all other major digital music platforms. The new released 12 tracks CD "Blessings All Over Me" was produced by Ernel Earlington at Mountain Of Gold Studio in Atlanta Georgia and it includes collaborations with her brother Anthony Malvo, veteran gospel singer Claudelle Clarke, Ancient Priest, Yvonne Johnson and singer/producer Ernel Exworldian.
"Blessings All Over Me" was launched at the Light of the World Christian Fellowship on March 31st, 2019 which was very successful. The blessings could be felt in every corner of the sanctuary which was filled to capacity and organizers had to carry more chairs to accommodate the overflow of audience. Following the success of her launch Michelle T went on her three months USA promotional tour that started in Atlanta and continues to New York, New Jersey, South Florida and the final leg in Connecticut, she is scheduled to return home to her awaiting family and fans on the 1st of July.
"I am very thankful for the good Lord who has strengthened me over the years to continue to do his work,” says Michele t. “I am totally overwhelmed by the fact that VPAL has chosen my CD to be considered for the Grammy Awards. It shows that the gospel of Jesus Christ is acknowledged by persons within the music industry. I just want to say many thanks to my producer Ernel Earlington for producing basically all the songs on the CD. Also, my husband who has been the wind beneath my wings throughout the years. My family, pastor, and fans who really keep me going.”
Her next event will be at the Jamaica 57th Independence Celebration Gospel Fest at the Lions Center, George Town, Grand Cayman, on Sunday 4th August, 2019 starting at 6:00 p.m., featuring ministers such as Sandra Brooks, Prodigal Son, Kevin Heath, Chozenn, Preaching Policeman from Jamaica, and a host of Cayman based artistes including MC Basillia Barnaby-Cuff.
“My endeavour is to continue spreading God's blessings to the four corners of the earth," Michelle added.
