Lester Love Signs an Exclusive Recording Agreement in a Joint Venture with Music World Gospel and The Love Group, LLC
(Houston, TX – May 23, 2011) – World renowned Pastor, author, motivational speaker and award-winning recording artist Lester Love today signed an exclusive recording agreement with Music World Gospel, in a joint venture with The Love Group, LLC. Bishop Love is the Senior Pastor of The City of Love, which he serves and leads with his wife, Pastor Fran Love.
Love, known for his preaching, is also a compelling singer, with a penchant for repurposing popular, contemporary songs to express love for and relationship with God. It’s a ministry that has connected with people inside and outside of his New Orleans-based church. A YouTube video of Bishop Love leading his congregation through Jesus-focused versions of songs by Alicia Keys, Luther Vandross and others has received over 1.5 million views. He will offer similar themes on his first CD under the new joint venture, which will be released in winter 2012. In addition, the partnership will include the release of select ministry projects.
“We enthusiastically welcome Bishop Love to our unique and diverse roster of artists at Music World Gospel,” said Mathew Knowles, founder, President and CEO of Music World Entertainment. “I believe his ability to blend contemporary R&B and popular songs with sacred messages will bring something fresh and exciting to both the urban and inspirational genres of music.”
“I am extremely excited about my new relationship with Mathew Knowles and Music World Entertainment,” said Pastor Love. “I’ve always been impressed by his innovation and willingness to step outside of the box. No one needs what they already have. To me he ‘gets it’ and I can’t wait for our vision to become a reality.”
Bishop Love’s motto is “ican. iWill. iMUST!” He is the author of two books: The Art of Armor Bearing: God’s Blueprint for Effective Servanthood and the recently published Catching the Mantle: Positioned To Receive the Double Portion. Love also serves as Bishop of Protocol Worldwide for the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, where he previously served as first assistant to his mentor Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.
