Celebrating a Life Well Lived

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Virtutibus igitur rectissime mihi videris et ad consuetudinem nostrae orationis vitia posuisse contraria. Te enim iudicem aequum puto, modo quae dicat ille bene noris. Sint modo partes vitae beatae. Cum praesertim illa perdiscere ludus esset. Duo Reges: constructio interrete. Quarum ambarum rerum cum medicinam pollicetur, luxuriae licentiam pollicetur.

Alterum significari idem, ut si diceretur, officia media omnia aut pleraque servantem vivere. Qui-vere falsone, quaerere mittimus-dicitur oculis se privasse; Non est enim vitium in oratione solum, sed etiam in moribus. Nummus in Croesi divitiis obscuratur, pars est tamen divitiarum. Si quicquam extra virtutem habeatur in bonis. Istam voluptatem perpetuam quis potest praestare sapienti? Nam ante Aristippus, et ille melius. Laboro autem non sine causa; Mihi, inquam, qui te id ipsum rogavi.

Lamar Campbell with Voices Of Praise Magazine

We got the opportunity of a lifetime to speak with Lamar Campbell about the new project at the 2014 Hezekiah Walker Choir Fest. Take a listen and let us know your thoughts.

Lamar Campbell & Spirit Of Praise

Founder of Lamar Campbell & Spirit of Praise, since their inception in 1995, the group has recorded four stellar CDs and seen their name value rise via collaborations with CeCe Winans, soul music icon Aaron Neville and even southern gospel legend Bill Gaither.
Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Lamar was active in the church and musically gifted from an early age. He began playing the piano in his home church from the age of eight, and by age fifteen, he became the music director of another church. After graduating from high school he felt a call to music and studied music at the Jordan Music College at Butler University in Indianapolis. Shortly after, in the late ’80s, he founded his first group known then simply as Lamar Campbell & Praise. That ensemble released a major-label album two years later that performed moderately well nationally yielding a major hit titled, “This Debt of Love I Owe,” and made the act a significant name in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. Lamar chose to disband that group and was later lead to form Lamar Campbell & Spirit of Praise and became the first artist signed to EMI Gospel, where they released CD’s entitled, Lamar Campbell & Spirit of Praise, I Need Your Spirit, When I Think About You, From the Heart and his latest release, New Song, New sound — Live, was released in 2007. These projects produced chart topping songs such as “He Won’t Let you Down”, “It’s All About the Love”, “Closer” and “More Than Anything” to mention a few.
Lamar has recently finished working on a new collection of songs. His new hit single is entitled OPEN THE SKY! This project was released on September 24, 2013.
