Award winning Jamaican gospel singer Chevelle Franklyn,after 10 years since her last studio album, has released a new album titled Set Time.
Chevelle Franklyn who’s been touring the world and spending a lot of time with God explained why she’s been off music,
“Doors kept opening up all over the world”. God opened doors in Nigeria, Ghana and Zimbabwe, I mean all over Africa, and the world by extension – London, The Middle East, The States and Europe, so I figured people were wondering if I migrated or something. God was doing His thing, I kept receiving new music but the season was not yet fulfilled for music to be released”.
Set Time chronicles the journey thus far. “I could not rush, I had to learn patience and trust the process”.
“I was going to all these music industry parties the likes of Janet Jackson album launch in Paris and also Mariah Carey’s but there was real void, one that I knew at the time that only Jesus could fill.”
I have A Father, featuring Grammy Award winning artist Pastor Donnie McClurkin, is one half of the double-combo lead singles for the album, (the other, No Foreign god). I Have a Father is an Afro-Caribbean party starter, to get you moving. The track is a medley of popular African worship songs. “It’s interesting how Africans worship. It’s intense, it’s real and very deep. Just thinking about how God has showed me so many things every time I take a trip to Africa and I am amazed – for them worship is essential and a lifestyle.
The project also features another Grammy Awards winning artist Israel Houghton, South Africa’s iconic worship leader Lionel Peterson and one of Nigeria’s very best, Frank Edwards.
Always one to master the quality of her music and allow the Spirit to lead her ministry, the songwriter/minister/producer believes the songs on this album had to come at this point, and not before. “This is the time and I am ready to share it with the world, this is the set time.
Chevelle Franklyn’s Set Time was released August 25, 2017 on all digital platforms worldwide.
