Richmond, VA — It’s been 3 years since GI fans have had their ears tickled with new GI music. But that is all about to change as GI took to social media recently to announce that they are back! They are in the studio working on their new single, which hits radio airwaves and digital stores next month! GI member Lamonte Harris says, “There’s a time for everything, and it was time for a break! We’ve been singing for 16 years, even though we only look 16.” It is reported that a full future interview will reveal the in depth reasons for the break. But whatever they are, I don’t think fans care as long as new music is on the way.
GI burst onto the music scene back in 2009 with their smash hit radio and video single “Get Up!” It dominated the Billboard Charts and became an urban gospel and mainstream crossover classic. “We still can’t go anywhere today without singing that song” says group member Branden Anderson. Their second radio and video single “Temptation” was an R&B crossover hit, garnering mainstream radio and television airplay. In 2011, they released their Praise and Worship Anthem ”Forever We Will Worship,” which shot up the billboard radio charts. Their most recent video single “Lead us to truth” has become an international flash mob theme song as for the last 2 years, it has been used for dance and flash mobs all over the world.
With such a monumental foundation for a young established group, one can only imagine what the future holds for this talented group of singers, songwriters, producers, dancers, musicians, and businessman. Grammy Award-winning artist Dorinda Clark Cole says, “GI has a new sound that is needed in the Gospel Music Industry. They are going to be around for a long time.” GI is back!
