Gospel prodigy, Jekalyn Carr, is starting 2016 off with a bang! Just two weeks after servicing her brand new single, “You’re Bigger,” to radio stations across the country, the powerful and prophetic single has made its debut on Billboard’s coveted Top 40 Gospel Singles chart, joining the ranks of the genre’s most popular and most played songs. Early response to the single, by Radio programmers and executives, was an indication of the song’s promise and potential, and this meteoric leap onto the industry’s most revered chart echoes the sentiments that “You’re Bigger” is poised to be one of the biggest songs of the year.
The lead single off of Carr’s forthcoming Live CD, The Life Project, “You’re Bigger” picks right up where she left off with her last smash hit, “Greater Is Coming,” which took the nation by storm and positioned Carr as one to watch and garnered her several awards and accolades, including her first Stellar Award, which she accepted at just 16 years old. It was clear to everyone then that Jekalyn Carr was a name that would become synonymous with great Gospel music for many years to come.
“You’re Bigger” is a timely reminder for all, that God is sovereign and larger than any problem or circumstance, and prominently showcases Carr’s signature impassioned delivery. Equal parts singer and preacher, Carr breathes ministry into each lyric with boldness and confidence that rivals those of her ministerial colleagues many years her senior. Carr has the ability to empower listeners and convince them to believe every word she sings.
The song is resonating with listeners and as the song permeates the airwaves, feedback is pouring in from city to city. Torrez Harris of WHLH in Jackson, MS says, “Jekalyn is on point with this gem. ‘You’re Bigger’ is a BIG song!” Similarly, Reggie Baker of WPZZ in Richmond, VA states, “Jekalyn Carr’s ‘You’re Bigger’ is a record to put your ear to. You can hear the growth in this young lady who is destined to be a leader in the music industry!”
The response to “You’re Bigger” and its early progress on the Billboard chart continues the buzz and anticipation that has been building ever since Carr recorded The Life Project before an energetic and responsive audience during her very first live recording. The setting proved to be a most appropriate platform for her to minister the songs with the passion and conviction for which she has become known. Showing signs that the highly anticipated CD is on its way, in addition to the release of the new single, Carr revealed the project’s stunning cover artwork on her social media platforms, and alluded to a Spring 2016 release, for which she instantly received overwhelming responses from thousands of her friends and followers, as well as from industry leaders and taste makers. All indications are clear that 2016 is poised to be a ‘BIG’ year for Jekalyn Carr!
