For Immediate Release —Vanessa Bell Armstrong is one of those artists that needs very little introduction – her voice and legend speak for themselves, and now for the first time ever, Armstrong teams up with one of her biggest fans, music impresario Donald Lawrence. The result is Armstrong’s strongest and most anticipated album release ever, THE EXPERIENCE, which hits stores October 6, 2009 on EMI Gospel.

THE EXPERIENCE is tried and true Vanessa Bell Armstrong. This power-packed album was recorded live in Chicago where Lawrence took Armstrong back to the basics with church friendly, signature Gospel music. The first single, “Good News,” is all that – a classically gospel song with extraordinary vocals from Armstrong. With a smooth groove, Armstrong has never sounded better and it is a song that makes you remember what Gospel music is really about. The song speaks to literally having a praise and prayer for everyday.

Along with “Good News,” Armstrong proves to be both timely and timeless as she reintroduces live versions of her favorites. Among the highlights are “You Bring Out The Best In Me,” a truly soulful duet with Rance Allen; “What He’s Done For Me,” and “Anyway You Bless Me.”

Armstrong will support this release with an upcoming promotional tour and key appearances throughout the Fall. For Armstrong’s full schedule check out her website:
