Washington, D.C. — Earnest Pugh has had a phenomenal year. His mega-hit, “I Need Your Glory”, has been ushering the saints into God’s presence for months now. The riveting power ballad from Earnest’s latest release, Earnestly Yours, has solidified him as one of gospel’s premiere balladeers. Now fans of the artist can see him perform the hit live. Pugh will be performing the chart-topping song, “I Need Your Glory”, on BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel Show this Sunday, December 18th. Check local listings for broadcast times.
For the last 14 weeks, the song from the six octave singer has kept a tight hold on the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Gospel Songs Chart. The strength of the single propelled it to the #10 spot on Billboard’s Top Gospel Songs for 2011. Earnestly Yours also ranked at #15 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums Year-End Chart. The song is also included on the 2012 WOW Gospel CD, one of the genre’s best-selling compilation series. In addition, the psalmist netted four 27th Annual Stellar Award Nominations: Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and Praise and Worship CD of the Year (for Earnestly Yours). He will be performing, “I Need Your Glory” during the awards ceremony, which will be held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN on Saturday, January 14, 2012.
