Michael White has penned songs that are sung in sanctuaries across the country. Gospel artists, worship teams and choirs sing his prolific lyrics and dynamic arrangements of sacred anthems and contemporary Gospel songs. He is Minister of Music at Kingdom Fellowship AME Church in Silver Spring, MD and has a growing catalog of award-winning solo albums (CONQUEROR, SING OVER ME). Michael now adds a holiday collection to his repertoire.
Michael White releases his first Christmas album THE SAVIOR IS HERE. His poignant holiday collection is produced by Kevin Kelley (VaShawn Mitchell, Bishop Paul Morton, Donnie McClurkin, Prince of Peace Church), award-winning musician Trent Phillips (Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Full Gospel BC Choir, Donnie McClurkin, Kevin Lemons) and noted musician Redman Caldwell.
“The Savior Is Here” title track and single not only showcase Michael’s songwriting prowess but also demonstrates his versatile and exceptional abilities as a soloist.
“The songs on this holiday album were chosen to bring a right now declaration that The Savior is here and that we should rejoice and celebrate our King,” Michael shares. “His name is Jesus, Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. He wants to be all of that for you!”
He continues, “Let Us Adore Him this Christmas season and spend time worshiping Jesus who is the ultimate gift that for some is yet unopened. Let’s unwrap the gift of Jesus and share it with family and the world.”
Michael proudly adds his family to the holiday album having his wife Cherlyn assist with some of the background vocals and children on lead vocals. Daughter Mian White offers lead vocals on “Let Us Adore Him”, daughter Cierra White leads “The First Noel”, while son Dion White takes the front stage on “O Holy Night” and daughter Anissa White passionately leads “Silent Night”.
“Adding my family to this record was designed to bring the listener into our living room and kitchen during the holidays,” says Michael. “We love, we laugh, we praise God, and we live JESUS together. It’s who we are every day. It’s a legacy that has been passed down to every generation.”
THE SAVIOR IS HERE album also has a companion songbook for music directors, musicians, and worship leaders. The songbook and CD are available exclusively on Michael’s website. The album is available now on all igital music and streaming outlets.
The music of THE SAVIOR IS HERE will take the congregation and everyday listener to an awareness of a God whose love never fails. A love that is shown through the birth of our Savior, the Light of the World and the reason for the season this time of the year called Christmas.
