Minister Bruce N. Seawood, internationally renowned songwriter and musician, is the founding visionary and chief executive offi cer for Spring Into Praise™ (SIP) an Adventist-founded choir festival. He currently serves as the Minister of Music at the Atlanta Berean SDA Church, Atlanta, GA.
While participating as a musician during the “Tri-City” Music Festival, an annual event for the youth of Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, TX, SIP™ founder, Bruce N. Seawood was inspired to create a similar experience for adults. His goal, to develop an arena for adults to fellowship, share their talents, and increase their musical knowledge, was realized in 2003 and has grown steadily over the last 7 years into an annual celebration that all SIP™ participants have thoroughly enjoyed. In 2010, Seawood had the opportunity to see his dream exceed all of his original expectations and flourish into the first live National all Seventhday Adventist CD/DVD recording. Spring Into Praise™ 2010 was held in Atlanta, GA June 30th – July 3rd, during the week of the 59th General Conference Session of Seventh-day Adventist. The host church was the Atlanta Berean SDA Church where the pastor is Dr. Carlton P. Byrd. Singing with divine anointing, the 300+ voice mass choir and soloists, along with outstanding musicians and directors, have combined efforts to produce this project. The recording was overseen by producers: Dr. Wayne Bucknor and Kelvin Wooten and Music Director: Dr. G. Ian Fisher-Curley. The CD combines traditional and contemporary original gospel compositions.
Seawood’s prayer, along with the board and staff of SIP™ 2010, is that everyone in attendance and those who purchase this project will receive a blessing from this truly spectacular undertaking and that God will multiply our efforts as we endeavor to “Spread the Praise.” We are pleased to present the First SIP™ 2010 National Live CD/DVD Mass Choir recording. Get ready to enjoy this much anticipated, live, anointed evangelistic tool which will be utilized to musically spread the gospel throughout the world.
