Today the Praise 1300am Family is giving a “BIG” BIRTHDAY SHOUT-OUT to Praise and Worship Leader Martha Munizzi…Here’s a brief bio:
Along with figures like Ron Kenoly, CeCe Winans, and Israel Houghton, Munizzi is pioneering cross-cultural worship music that not only connects with both black and white Christian congregations but also reaches the masses.
Munizzi’s songs are self-published under the name Say The Name Publishing/Martha Munizzi Music. She released her first Praise & Worship/Gospel album, Say the Name (2002), followed by The Best Is Yet to Come (2003) and When He Came (2004), both of which debuted high on Billboard’s Gospel chart. The Best Is Yet to Come peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Music Top Gospel Album charts in 2004 and remained on the charts for more than a year.
In 2004 Munizzi had two music albums in the top five on Billboard‘s Gospel charts at the same time (The Best Is Yet to Come at No. 2 and When He Came at No. 5) and Billboard Magazine named her as one of the top five Gospel Artists for 2004. Additionally, her project The Best Is Yet to Come was named one of the top ten selling Gospel projects for 2004.
In 2005 she signed a distribution deal with Integrity Media, Inc. Under this agreement her previously released albums The Best Is Yet To Come and Say The Name and all future releases were to be distributed to Christian retail outlets through Provident-Integrity Distribution and to general market outlets on the Epic Records (a division of Sony-BMG Distribution).
In 2006 Munizzi released her next CD entitled No Limits Live. This CD debuted on Billboard’s Top Gospel Charts at No. 1 and remained at the top of the charts for 6 weeks.
