Isn’t it amazing how only a precious few artists are always a step ahead of the next musical trend? It seems as if they have a sixth sense when it comes to pairing the exact right musical approach with the exact right message for their fans. Truth is, it really has nothing to do with a sixth sense, but rather, has everything to do with the artist’s listening, following and responding to the Holy Spirit. And, once again, legendary musician, vocalist, prophet and Pastor Calvin Suggs has responded to the Spirit’s leading with a unique and deeply soulful CD, Glory Land - which sets a new and exciting course for Gospel music with its debut on his new record label, Alegacy Records. “God spoke directly, firmly and without hesitation to my heart, and revealed to me the importance of blending styles of Gospel music that would represent a broad base of appeal to reach people of all ages,” Suggs said. Referring to the aptly-named title, Glory Land, Suggs added, “I have never been more excited about a record that gives listeners a glimpse of the power and beauty of our Father’s Glory!”
Pastor Suggs extraordinary vocal talent provides the perfect complement to a groove-based musical landscape painted with a “colors” that combine rich traditional quartet stylings with old and new-school R&B. The uplifting messages of hope and healing found on Glory Land are consistent with those this mighty messenger of God has been sharing with audiences around the country since his early days as a choir member at St. Peter’s Church in rural North Carolina. In the tiny community of Farmville, Calvin was strongly encouraged by his Godly- grandmother Winnie Suggs to share his love for the Lord and his love of singing with any and all who would listen. After catching the attention of Gospel legend Dorothy Norwood and later the incomparable Shirley Caesar, Calvin remembered his grandmother’s advice and subsequently blazed a musical and spoken-ministry pathway that has firmly positioned the humble servant in the hearts and minds of Gospel music lovers from coast-to-coast.
When asked to reflect on Suggs new Glory Land CD project, Pastor Shirley Caesar said, “…when you listen to Glory Land you’re going to hear Calvin’s gift, his anointing and the power of God reverberating on every note of music and in every lyric!” Pastor Caesar closed by referencing another world-renowned man of God with, “…in the vernacular of T.D. Jakes, Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready as Calving Suggs takes you on a true musical journey to Glory Land!”
Always the innovator, Pastor Suggs knew that no one would work harder than himself when it came to producing and promoting his music. And thus, after much prayer, Suggs decided in early 2010 to develop his own record label for the express purpose of getting even more of his music to the marketplace. With a growing radio ministry, a production and promotional staff of committed followers and a distribution agreement with one of the nation’s strongest Gospel music wholesalers, Suggs is now poised to forge an even deeper relationship with the legions of fans he has developed throughout his career of ministering to the masses.
Yet, in light of all these innovative endeavors, Suggs knows ultimately his new CD - as well as his new record label Alegacy Records - represents an even more exciting and effective opportunity to reach out and save souls in desperate need of hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ. But then, considering his illustrious career, innovation has always been – and will likely continue to be – the hallmark of the music and ministry of this one-of-a-kind artist.
