Joyous Celebration has released the third music video from their latest live-recorded studio album, Joyous Celebration: Still We Rise, with the debut of the Jesus Is Lord Medley live performance.
Joyous Celebration took to Twitter on Friday, 2 April 2021, to announce the availability of the visuals of their current single, Jesus Is Lord Medley. Jesus Is Lord Medley marks the third official single from the choral group’s latest live-recorded studio album, Joyous Celebration: Still We Rise. The album was released on Thursday, 1 April 2021.
The visuals of the performance showcase how the choral group has modified its live recordings due to the pandemic. The recording was conducted at the Joburg Theatre with just the band and choir. In the performance, the ensemble further strips the performance to just the lead singer, the pianist and the backing vocalists, who are introduced towards the end of the song.
According to a statement on Tuesday, 6 April 2021, “The celebrated gospel leaders also announced that their [twenty-fifth] project, Still We Rise: Live at the Joburg Theatre is now live across all music stores, with a deluxe live experience consisting of a 16-track listening experience, which is supported with an accompanying visual album consisting of extended versions of all 16 praise and worships hymns.
“While the audio/visual album will only live on Apple music, Joyous is committed to releasing weekly videos every Friday until all the videos are available via Vevo.”
