PR — Gospel’s #1 balladeer Earnest Pugh, known for #1 radio hits such as “I Need Your Glory” and “Rain On Us,” is on the road promoting his new Top 10 “Just Worship” EP (boasting the radio hit “Alpha & Omega”) and preparing to usher in the holidays with the “Christmas with Earnest Pugh & Friends” concert tour. The exciting yuletide event will feature performances from Pugh’s mentee John Paul McGee, an extraordinary pianist; BET Season 4 Sunday Best winner Amber Bullock; and the sultry tenor Keith Williams.

“My team and I have put together a really uplifting program of songs to get people into the Christmas spirit but also to remind them that Jesus is the reason for the season,” says Pugh. The concert will feature familiar carols such as “Come All Ye Faithful,” “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night.” It will also showcase future classics such as Keith Williams’ “Holy to You” (from his Top 10 CD “Tone For Worship”) and Pugh’s “Ring Dem Bells” (from his “Christmas with Earnest Pugh & Friends” CD that debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart).
