May 27, 2016 (Springdale, Ark.) – Christian singer/songwriter Brian Allen, whose single “Greater Is Your Name” recently hit No 1. on the Christian Radio Chart, announces today’s release of his new EP titled “Magnificent.” Allen is the founder of More Than Conquerors Ministries, which was spawned by his personal story involving addiction, imprisonment and salvation.

“I am feeling blessed and highly favored to release this new collection of music, songs that I believe are our best yet,” Allen said. “My prayer is that the songs on ‘Magnificent’ will glorify the Gospel of Jesus Christ and touch many lives.”

In support of the new EP, Allen is scheduled to appear on Cornerstone Television Network’s popular show “Real Life 360” and its flagship series “Real Life” on June 21. In addition to sharing his testimony, Allen will perform his current single, “Greater Is Your Name” and other music from “Magnificent.” Jessica Smith, a member of the More Than Conquerors Band, is scheduled to appear on the Cornerstone shows with Allen.

Allen’s appearance on “Real Life” and “Real Life 360” can be viewed live, online or on a broadcast station across North America. Visit the show’s website for air dates, times and channels in various cities.

In addition to “Greater Is Your Name,” the EP contains the title track and “In The Silence,” scheduled as the second radio release. The EP is available for purchase at iTunes and Allen’s website.

Allen, who grew up in a Christian home with a father who was a pastor for 4o years, became addicted to drugs, a path that led to a four-and-half-year prison sentence for domestic drug trafficking. While in prison, Allen was saved and, upon his release, finished a Bachelor of Bible Theology degree from Lancaster Bible College. As a full-time pastor, Allen began More Than Conquerors Ministries, which includes Allen performing his original music, leading worship and delivering a message. The ministry currently maintains a full schedule of bookings that includes churches, men’s conferences, youth rallies and jails and prisons.

“God is using the ministry to touch many lives,” Allen said. “My heart’s desire is to reach the lost and tell the world about Jesus.”

“Greater Is Your Name,” which hit No. 1 on independent Christian radio charts, follows the chart success of “Your Love” and “Not On My Own,” which charted at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.

THE UNION OF SINNERS AND SAINTS RELEASES ‘INDEPENDENCE DAY’

Remake of Whiteheart Classic Hit Features Petra’s John Schlitt on Vocals

TheUnion_IndependenceDay

May 24, 2016 (Springdale, Ark.) – The Union of Sinners and Saints, a band featuring Petra’s lead singer John Schlitt and Whiteheart founding member Billy Smiley, is bringing back an oldie, but a goodie with a new recording of the No. 1 hit “Independence Day.” The remake, originally from Whiteheart’s popular “Powerhouse” album, was produced by Smiley and features Schlitt’s distinctive vocals. The single, which is being released today, is going for adds at Christian Rock and Christian CHR-formatted radio stations.

Jeff Van Driel, CEO and Founder of Suite 28c Records, commented “Whiteheart and Petra were a big part of what formed my musical taste growing up in a small rural town in Canada and this album combines the best of what made those groups so special. It is truly an honor for Suite 28c to represent The Union of Sinners and Saints and hope that this record reaches many with its message.”

“Independence Day” is from the eponymously-titled CD of ten original songs and updated versions of Petra’s Beyond Belief and Whiteheart’s Indy Day, set for release on June 17 and available for preorder now on iTunes. In addition to Schlitt and Smiley, the band features Whiteheart bassist Anthony Sallee, Jason Fowler, Jon Knox and Jonathan Crone.

Though a new band, The Union of Sinners and Saints combines members from two of the best-selling Christian rock bands in history. Petra and Whiteheart collectively have sold more than 12 million records, charted 25 No. 1 songs and garnered numerous Grammy and Dove Awards. In addition to the musical histories, the band also merges the friendship between Schlitt and Smiley.

“John and I got together last Fall and started writing some songs and discussed both of our histories and journeys,” Smiley said. “After seeing the chemistry and friendship that developed, we were excited with the new material we were creating, and started brainstorming about taking this out on the road this year.”

“It only made sense to feature Petra and Whiteheart favorites along with some of the new songs we were writing in the studio.” said Schlitt. “We realized we had a lot of new ideas swirling around in our heads that we wanted to share, both musically and lyrically, songs that were on our hearts and minds. And yet we also wanted to celebrate with all of our friends and fans some of the memorable songs, moments, and performances that they have been a part of over the years.

“The album and live events,” Schlitt said, “will incorporate the kind of artistry and ministry that will remind (fans) of the early years of Christian Rock, but also usher in a new energy and excitement.”

The Union of Sinners and Saints currently is touring throughout North America in support of the new music.
