BENITA JONES SET TO RELEASE NEW LIVE ALBUM, THE ENTREATING;
Album Pre-Order Begins Today With Two Songs Available As Instant Download “Good God” and “A Better Word”
3 April 2020 – Integrity Music/Tyscot Records announces the pre-order from multi award-nominated vocalist, worship leader, and Pastor Benita Jones (formerly Benita Washington). Titled The Entreating, the pre-order for the upcoming summer release begins today and is accompanied by two songs available for instant download, “Good God” and “A Better Word.” A new music video also releases today for “A Better Word,” which can be viewed here and below.
Off the heels of her album’s debut single “Good God,” which released March 3 as the album’s lead radio single, The Entreating carries a message of hope for us all amidst hard times such as this.
“When I was in the process of writing songs for The Entreating,” Jones shares, “I knew that I wanted to write songs that would encourage individuals and churches alike, to worship God even in the midst of hard times. I learned the importance of seeking God and worshipping Him while facing the many challenges that life can bring. Loss, grief, divorce, crisis, pandemic – they are all just opportunities for our strong and victorious God to show up. The Entreating is filled with songs of hope! No matter where you are or what you’re going through, God is able to make something beautiful out of it.”
Fluid with spontaneous moments of honest, vulnerable worship, The Entreating, Jones’ first live album, contains many standout tracks including the intimate ballad “Still Everything,” the energetic and soon to be congregational favorite “Joy,” “A Better Word” (available today), and a remake of Leeland and Sinach’s worship hit “Way Maker.” It’s a live worship experience that reaches far beyond the Gospel community with a timely message we all need to be reminded of: God is Good, no matter what you’re facing.
Jones exclaims, “He’s everything. He won’t let me down. When it’s all said and done, He’s still on the throne. He uses my broken pieces to make a beautiful tapestry of a life that I never imagined I would have. When we stay with Him, when we cling close to Him, and allow Him to work because He promised that all things work together for our good. That theme runs through the whole record.”
