It’s been a pretty amazing year forAnthony Brown & group therAPy. Nearly a year ago, the Tyscot Records signees released their self-titled debut project which debuted at #3 onBillboard‘s Top Gospel Albums Chart. The project produced the smash hit “Testimony”, which shot to the top 5 onBillboard‘s Hot Gospel Songs Chart. Since the release, the group has been featured on Mary Mary‘s Go Get It Tour, TBN’s Praise The Lord, and BET’s Celebration of Gospel.
Well, the group may have arguably had their biggest performance of the year during the 4th of July weekend as part of the heralded Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, LA. The group performed as part of the Get Lifted All Star Gospel Tribute which honored gospel luminariesTramaine HawkinsandDonnie McClurkin. The group performed their hit single “Testimony”, along with a medley of Donnie McClurkin songs which included “All We Ask” and “Great Is Your Mercy”.
“The Essence Music Festival was an amazing experience,” says Brown. “I can remember hearing about it for years. So to have the opportunity to share on the stage my first time there was mind blowing.”
It was equally special for Brown to perform the tribute to Pastor McClurkin who has served as his longtime mentor.
