Smokie Norful

Style: Live gospel; compare to Donnie McClurkin, Donald Lawrence, Brian Courtney Wilson

Top tracks: "Sunday Morning Medley" (w/ Myron Butler), "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power"

Revisiting the song services of his youth, the multiple award-winning pastor/singer invites gospel greats like Myron Butler and Vanessa Bell Armstrong to fashion a live worship concert harkening Norful's formative years in the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. With plenty of free-spirited foursquare worshipping from the 12th District AME Mass backup choir and capacity Tulsa crowd, ample sentimental and comedic reminiscing from Reverend Smokie, and a tracklisting of the greatest songs from the African-American church's hymnal, Norful creates a perfect link to a passionate past for younger gospel generations.
