“Lose Yourself”
Selected of God
Sing 2 Praise/S2P Records (2012)

Selected of God is distinctively Detroit.

Organized in 2002 by Pastor Larry Callahan and music director Steven D. Anderson, Selected of God was named Best Small Choir – Detroit Region in the “How Sweet the Sound” Competition. In November 2008, the ensemble took first place in the Detroit Gospel Showcase and Awards Choir Competition. Named Ambassadors of Detroit by Chrysler Motors, Selected of God won an Emmy for their role in the “Born of Fire: Imported from Detroit” commercial.

To add to their Detroit swagger, Selected of God gospelizes fellow Detroiter Eminem’s hit “Lose Yourself,” infusing it with what can only be described as gothic gospel. The single is released on the Sing 2 Praise/S2P label which has affiliation with the legendary Detroit record company, Sound of Gospel, early label home of the Clark Sisters.

Speaking of the Clark Sisters, the choir’s forthcoming CD Evolution includes a cover of “You Brought the Sunshine,” complete with a vocal by Twinkie Clark-Terrell. This brings the song full circle: from gospel song to nightclub turntables and back again.

Evolution is produced by Grammy and Stellar Award-winning producer Asaph A. Ward and scheduled for a spring release. Meanwhile, click below to check out the video for “Lose Yourself.”
