With a whole new crop of Christian artists like Tasha Cobbs, Travis Greene and Tamela Mann making waves with millennials these days. It’s easy to forget some of the most formidable artists of our era, especially if they’ve been on the absentee list for far too long. Here are just a handful of names we desperately need to hear from. These 10 artists have been sitting on the sidelines and are overdue to drop another dime to destroy every yoke.
1. Mary Mary: This dynamic duo defined ministry-in-music for the millennial generation better than anyone. Erica Campbell & Tina Campbell, as a team, were sassy, serious and sold-out for the Lord. Yes, we still get them in smaller doses as solo artists but truth be told, it pales in comparison to the lightning and thunder these sisters spawned as Cali’s finest females. These two titans turned it on and made the Savior swanky among the secular crowd. It’s been 5 years since, Go Get It, a half-hearted farewell to their fanbase. Long enough. Let’s get these two sisters back in studio for a bit more blast-from-the-past.
2. Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers: A musical savant and vocal supervisor, Kurt Carr has always carried the torch for excellence in Gospel music. His league of accomplished soloists simply known as The Kurt Carr Singers were guaranteed show-stoppers. Once upon a time, a prolific recording artist, Kurt Carr is less copious these days and certainly overdue for another project that pushes the limit. Bless This House was wonderful. Time to bless the saints once again, after a prolonged absence.
