Donnie Abraham - Gospel CD Project

Project Background from Donnie:

The reason I am recording a gospel album is because I feel the need to get back to my roots. My first love has always been gospel music. When I first started singing and playing guitar, I was listening to the Blackwood Brothers, The Imperials, J.D. Sumner & The Stamps Quartet, The Oak Ridge Boys, and many more. Southern Gospel music has always been my main musical influence.
    This CD will be titled It's Not Too Late. This is also the name of the featured song, which I wrote. This song is my personal testimony. I have gone full circle in my life and thank God it's not too late for me.
    I am looking forward to working on this project with my friends Ed Finnie, Mark Maynard, and Dave Hamilton. They are all wonderful vocalists and will be a great addition to this album.
