“This is my church,” said Multi-Stellar and Grammy Award winning Donald Lawrence about his guest appearance on the first single, “Released,” off his church’s latest album release, “Bill Winston Presents Living Word: Released.” “It’s a song I wrote some time ago. I tried to put it on two projects… it was meant for me to give it to the church.”

Lawrence’s mega-church in Chicago is the Living Word Christian Center lead by Dr. Bill Winston, known as being an inspiring and motivating speaker.

“I’ve been a member since 2005,” said Donald, also co-host of “How Sweet the Sound” national choir competition. “Pastor Winston is a brilliant teacher, I go for the teaching. He has a deep revelation of the scripture.”

The first single “Released,” is climbing the charts fast and leaves all inspired who lesson. Aside from “Released,” the Living Word project offers another Lawrence song “Give,” as well as “Favor Ain’t Fair,” and “Awesome Wonder” sung by Kim Stratton; “Be Still” and “Sacrifice of Praise” sung by Ed Tucker; “Church Medley” sung by Walt Whitman, and “Prophetic Word,” a spoken word selection by the pastor.

Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Winston – a former award winning U.S. Air Force fighter pilot – founded Living Word Christian Center, a multi-cultural, non-denominational church, in 1985. Today it has over 20,000 members. Dr. Bill Winston is also founder of the Tuskegee Christian Center, the Bible Training Center, the School of Ministry and Mission, the Living Word Christian Academy, The Faith Ministry Alliance and the Joseph Business School. His ministry is internationally distributed via radio, television, the Internet and through crusades. Pastor Winston is also an author of numerous books that include “The Law of Confession,” “Transform Your Thinking,” and “Training for Reigning.”

“The pastor speaks in a place that I’m at,” Donald Lawrence points out. “I always leave with something I’ve never had before. When you understand how to speak the code (of the Bible) God will give personal revelation to you. The Bible says one thing and it speaks to people in different ways.”

With the “Bill Winston Presents Living Word: Released” project you get many different styles/sounds of Gospel that include R&B, Jazz and Praise & Worship.
