It was literally standing room only at Cross Cultural the Saturday night of April 28th. A five year project was completed at Damascus Road Studios with the premier happening at Cross Cultural Musique. The Faith Project has been the vision of Rich DeGray, who owns and operates Damascus Road Studios.
Phillip Phillips made some of his earlier recordings with Rich at Damascus Road Studios, right here in Albany, GA. The Hood Family enjoyed our experience making our recording with Rich as well. If you’re interested seeing what Rich could do for you recording wise, this next Saturday night would be a great time for you to meet Rich and see some of his handiwork live at Cross Cultural Musique. The Lord led Rich to name his new CD “Cross Cultural.”
My wife and I operate Cross Cultural Musique every Saturday night in Leesburg, GA. Rich and I have worked on several projects together in the past and he has sent and brought groups to us. Rich has a standard question he asks when he is involved with a project: “Does it meet and exceed expectations?” I have always truthfully answered “yes”.
On April 28th, Rich, along with Jarrod, Willie, and Chris, there were 8 other people on stage. They were not only sold out for the Lord Jesus Christ, they were also anointed in their ministry. Rich explained why the Lord led him to name the Faith Project’s CD “Cross Cultural.” It is because all of their songs span a broad spectrum of musical tastes. These artists represent the talent of Albany and Leesburg at their finest. Need I say more?
As I looked at the stage, I saw a blend of black and white people singing to one God. They have a song on their CD which quotes Revelation 7: “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’” I thought, “Yes, Cross Cultural.” As great a picture as I’ve ever seen of Cross Cultural was on the stage that night.
This coming Saturday night, August 25th, Rich and the whole Faith Project will be back to release their CD, “Cross Cultural,” at where else? Cross Cultural! Cross Cultural Musique exists to glorify God by engaging various music ministries from local congregations in a non-denominational atmosphere for the mutual edification of all in attendance.
Cross Cultural Musique is located at 603 Hwy 32 East from Leesburg. We meet Saturdays at 7 PM. For more info call 229-376-3293.
