Hailed as the Top Gospel Artist of the Decade by Billboard, Tasha Cobbs Leonard has built her career on larger-than-life performances and powerhouse vocals that call us to honor and celebrate God in all his power and glory. On her new album, HYMNS, Leonard goes bigger and bolder than ever before, reimagining classic hymns of love and grace with a series of sweeping, ambitious arrangements that draw on everything from worship and gospel to country, pop, and R&B.
Captured in front of a live audience of more than 3,000 at The Greenwood Oasis on the campus of New Life Southeast in Chicago, the record features an all-star cast of special guests—including Jennifer Hudson, Ricky Dillard, Mary Mary, Natalie Grant and Kierra Sheard Kelly—and showcases Leonard at her most inspiring as she delivers a timeless collection that’s both warmly familiar and breathtakingly fresh. “I like to think of these songs as hymns for the future,” says Leonard. “They’re meant to live on for generations, to reach people I’ll never meet, to spread the gospel for years and years to come.”
