“God is Good”
Regina Belle
From the forthcoming CD Love Forever Shines
Pendulum Records 2008

From classical to soul to show tunes to jazz, Regina Belle has sung it all. Now she’s gone back to her roots to record some gospel. The first single to be released from her forthcoming CD Love Forever Shines is “God is Good.”

“God is Good” has that church-in-the-country sound, with a steady floor-thumping rhythm, hand clapping and congregational harmony. Behind the singing is an intriguing audio bed of shouting preachers and assenting congregants, as if the radio were tuned to several church broadcasts at once. It’s instantly ear-catching for its retro sound. Or as Pendulum Records’ CEO Ruben Rodriguez puts it, “’God Is Good’ is so traditional, that it’s cutting edge.”
