Momentum continues for Ernie Haase + Signature Sound as the GRAMMY-nominated quartet follows A Jazzy Little Christmas, ranked by the Los Angeles Times as one of the "Best Christmas Albums of 2019" and featured on "Fox & Friends" and Huckabee.TV, with another Gaither Music Group project.
Something Beautiful, a new recording from Ernie Haase + Signature Sound, featuring their favorite songs by gospel music icons Bill and Gloria Gaither, will be released across all music platforms on April 17. The 12-song collection includes collaborations with both of the Gospel Music Hall of Famers, who have collectively garnered eight GRAMMY Awards and 40 Gospel Music Association (GMA) DOVE Awards, including the title “Songwriter of the Year” eight times.
Haase, Gaither and award-winning producer Wayne Haun poured through Bill and Gloria Gaither’s catalog of over 700 popular songs, and the group decided to reimagine some of the classics including “He Touched Me,” “Because He Lives,” “Then Came the Morning,” “I Just Feel Like Something Good Is About to Happen” and more. Something Beautiful will be exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and Universal Music and will be available throughout the Christian marketplace as well as online platforms including YouTube, Pandora, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and Gaither.com.
“It is hard to put into words how excited, honored and blessed I feel to be able to collaborate with my friends and mentors Bill and Gloria Gaither. Singing with The Cathedral Quartet was a dream of mine, and God made that dream come true. And now, after all these years, another dream has come true! Working hand-in-hand with the author of these songs and my brilliant producer and friend Wayne Haun is a milestone in my musical career. I'm so excited to offer Something Beautiful to the body of Christ as the culmination of one of my most cherished dreams," expressed Haase.
Ernie Haase + Signature Sound has long been a part of the Gaither HOMECOMING family of artists appearing on the brand's worldwide tours to such venues as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Sydney Opera House and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The group has appeared with Bill and Gloria on their award-winning and top-selling recordings, including the Gaither Gospel Series, of which 133 products have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum.
On Feb. 29, Ernie Haase + Signature Sound will embark on their Something Beautiful and Good Tour that leads into the highly-anticipated A Jazzy Little Christmas Tour 2020. Both tours are booking now.
