“In His Presence”
Geneatha Wright
Feat. the Bible Faith Tabernacle Choir and Denise Renee
Godfather Records (release date: March 27, 2017)

By Bob Marovich

First Lady Geneatha Wright gives her all to “In His Presence,” a simple, sweet ballad written by her husband, Pastor David Wright, about being where Jesus is because where Jesus is, there is peace, freedom, and liberty.

Together with the Bible Faith Tabernacle Choir and soloist Denise Renee, Wright builds the intensity of the song until it ends in fiery evangelistic shouting. The instruments drop out at one point to accentuate the singing.  “In His Presence” is Wright’s strongest and most impactful release to date.

Pastor David and First Lady Geneatha Wright lead the Grace Tabernacle Christian Center Church Of God In Christ in Brooklyn, New York.
