JAMIE SIMOND NEW CD RELEASE "COLLAGE"
Jamie Simond's CD, "Collage"
incorporates Praise and Worship, Urban Inspirational Gospel and so much more. "Collage, musically it's all over the place -- different sounds, different genres but they all come together to honor God who is my inspiration; who is the Head of all; who is control of us all," Jamie states.
With the debut single Reach For God Jamie tells us, "...this song ("Reach For God") is really a journey of different pieces of my life. We go through so many different things on the way to finding God and to being closer to Him, so I just really tried to give songs that would convey the sum total of what I have been through to where I am now and I know that there are some people who will be able to relate to these songs."
As the former Praise and Worship leader at The House of Hope in Chicago and currently as the Minister of Music at Lilydale Progressive M.B. Church, Jamie connects with adults but also appeals to the youth ministry with songs that encompass the best elements of every aspect of gospel music. Collage is the CD that will unite people everywhere.
"Prayerfully, people will hear the music and they can see themselves in the lyrics, and see different situations that they have gone through in every song. I really believe that there is something there for every person no matter what the age is -- old or young. I really believe that it will get to the heart of where people are; so this is the record that we are doing -- it's called Collage".
