(Nashville, TN)  Sunrise Music Group of Nashville has announced September 4, 2007 as the upcoming release date for the CD/DVD combo package called  Faith Unscripted: Dr. Bobby Jones, starring the Ambassador of Gospel Music, Dr. Bobby Jones and some of the greatest Gospel voices of yesterday and today like Tye Tribbett, Karen Clark-Sheard, Joe Ligon and Vanessa Bell-Armstrong.

Both the CD and the DVD were shot and recorded at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studio which is housed in a Gothic Revival greystone church on famed Music Row that was built at the turn of the century creating a sense of an old-fashioned Gospel church singing.

The release marks the 30th anniversary of Dr. Jones’ regular appearances on television; first as “Bobby Jones Gospel” on Nashville’s NBC affiliate in 1976 and later picked up for national syndication by BET in 1980 where it is now BET’s longest running program. Jones’ efforts have revolutionized the Gospel music industry by giving viewers the first and only black Gospel television show. Jones also created “Video Gospel” in 1989 which became the only national outlet providing Gospel artists the opportunity to air their videos.

“When Dr. Jones and I first discussed this project, we both had to laugh at the idea of producing such a unique event without a script,” reflects Robert Swope, President and CEO of Sunrise Music Group.   “But we agreed that the project should be directed by God and that created an event where the Spirit led the Superstars of Gospel in what they do best... spreading the Word through their amazing musical talents.”

"I didn’t know what was going to happen," Bobby Jones said before the music started. "That is the good thing about it. But whatever it is, it was going to be great. There was no outline; it was unscripted, so we were expecting all of these wonderful voices to join together and celebrate with me in this great environment. Our spirits were high and our pulses were beating fast."

The “Faith Unscripted” CD showcases 12 titles including Dr Bobby Jones himself on “Call Him Up,” as well as traditional Gospel pieces like “Oh Happy Day” featuring Chris Bolton and “Oh, How I Love Jesus” featuring Micah Stampley. The accompanying 85-minute DVD highlights the unscripted recording which is described by Swope as “having old fashioned church.”  Proceeds from the sale of the CD/DVD set will benefit the Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel Complex for Education and Preservation.

Faith Unscripted: Dr. Bobby Jones is the inaugural effort of Sunrise Music Group, a Nashville-based record label with a focus on Gospel, Jazz, Classical and Bluegrass music. The CD/DVD combination release is unique to Sunrise Music Group and will be a standard offering on all future releases.
