Dorinda Clark-Cole Debuts #2 With 5th Solo Album
Veteran Gospel music superstar Dorinda Clark-Cole proves that she still has a winning formula as her fifth solo album Living It debuted in the #2 spot on Billboard’s Gospel Album Sales chart. The debut comes on the heels of a national promotional tour and national television exposure that is making Dorinda Clark-Cole a household name.
“This is a huge honor and I am overjoyed,” says Cole. “After being in this business for as long as I have, it is an incredible feeling to know that people still want to hear my music. This album is my life’s testimony and I am thankful for every person who purchased it and every heart it has touched.”
Phil Thornton, Vice President and General Manager, Urban Inspirational, eOne Music, says: “Dorinda stretched herself creatively on this project but it is
still a ‘Dorinda Clark-Cole’ album, and I think that’s what has fans excited. Dorinda is powerful evangelically and vocally - and both shine through on this album.
Living It is Dorinda Clark-Cole’s self-proclaimed “faith journey,” an album that expresses her heart towards a God who has seen her through the trials and tribulations of life and shown her time and again the meaning of His word that says: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
