TODD DULANEY ‘ANTHEMS & GLORY’ Grammy-nominated artist, Todd Dulaney, is a prolific worshipper and songwriter who delivers his latest and greatest in Anthems & Glory. Dulaney’s new album, which was recorded live in Chicago, brings the written word to life in the form of worship. The album includes 17 tracks that are sure to turn listeners’ pain into praise. Keep The Faith speaks with Todd Dulaney and reviews Anthems & Glory to give the world an idea of what makes this album special. Dulaney shares what listeners can expect from his new album: “It’s loaded, it’s my favourite album so far. I’m singing harder because I feel more confident in my ability to express myself. Even my band is expressing themselves more! Plus, we have Tamela Mann, Smokie Norful, Kierra Sheard and Todd Galberth featured on the project. I always think my next is always my best, so I really believe that this is my best.” The ‘best’ is a great way to describe this masterpiece. We begin by taking a look at each track, one song at a time.

“If there’s one man that can inspire the young generation and beyond, it’s Sir, Todd Dulaney, a man with vision when it comes to God’s will.” - Dave P – UGN Jamz THE POWER OF PRAISE Track #1 ‘Overture’ – This song sets the stone by reminding us that Jesus pulls us through our storms. ‘Victory Belongs to Jesus!’ takes Dulaney back to a similar theme from his favourite part of Africa: Uganda. “Uganda did something in our hearts. There, we were able to touch the people. We were able to see how people, who don’t have as much as you, can have more joy and authority in Christ. It was the best experience of my life, and we ministered there. 75,000 people came out. We were overwhelmed with support for ‘Victory Belongs to Jesus’ (To Africa With Love).” Track #2 ‘Prayer’ – This track ushers in the Holy Spirit and sets the tone through prayer. A prayer to the King of kings and the Lord of lords, with the proclamation: “There is one God.” Track #3 ‘Opening Flow’ – With lively drumbeats and praise from the choir, this track invites the listener to break into dance. ‘Lift up your hands, open your mouth!’ Track #4 ‘Come A Little Closer’ – ‘There’s joy in the room that’s why I really wanna be where You are.’ This song invites you to come a little closer to Jesus to get to know who He is. Track #5 ‘My Weapon’ – ‘My praise is my weapon tonight.’ The enemy may try to attack us but we will use our praise to confuse the enemy. Dulaney reminds us this is a spiritual battle, so we need to fight accordingly. There is no fear in love. Track #6 ‘Psalm 18’ is a love song, a song that acknowledges everything God is to us. ‘I will call on the Name of the Lord, who is worthy to be praised.’ Dulaney embodies the emotion David must have felt as he was delivered from his enemies. Track #7 ‘Psalm 23’ – ‘I will fear no evil.’ When we dwell in the house of the Find us on Twitter and Facebook: @KeepTheFaithmag
