And yet another Idol record announcement. This one is good news. Season 3’s George Huff is set to release his gospel-flavored sophomore album on April 7. From the press release:
Beloved season 3 “American Idol” finalist George Huff will release his gospel flavored sophomore disc simply titled “George Huff” on April 7th, via E1 Music. “The CD is reflective of the times we are living in and the hardships I’ve endured in my own life. My music tells the story but also encourages you to hold on, turn your situation around and have some fun, ” exclaims Huff. These sentiments are reflected in the stand-out single, aptly titled “Don’t Let Go.” “So many people are going through hard times financially and spiritually and my music is meant to recognize that and be an antidote for it, ” said Huff. While Huff’s music is expressive about today’s world, it is also a lot of fun. His gift for creating joyful, state-of-the-art Gospel/R&B is on full display. On “Turn It Around” Huff can be heard asking playfully “Where my horns at?” before shouting gleefully, “Sounds mighty good!”
The album is produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Aaron Lindsey and Jamiene ‘J-Skills’ Thompson.
According to the release, George talks to seasonmates Fantasia Barrino and Jennifer Hudson nearly every day, “Obviously we have been through many ups and downs in the last few years and I have prayed for them and they have prayed for me.”
