“Chainbreaker”

By Bob Marovich

New York-based singer Angela “Missy” Billups is known for both traditional church wreckers and rhythmic praise ballads.

Her latest single, “Chainbreaker,” is right in the middle in terms of tempo, while the lyrics are consistent with the message she has sung at a variety of speeds: that God can release us from the physical and emotional chains that bind us. But you gotta believe.

“Chainbreaker,” which Billups sang to an appreciative audience at the Rhythm of Gospel Awards ceremony last month, was produced by Ernest Billups, Missy’s son and himself a gospel artist.
