New Tour, Major Media Exposure To Accompany St. Jamesí Reunion Records Debut

(Nashville, Tenn.) February 23, 2011 ñ One of Christian musicís most recognized names and voices, Rebecca St. James ñ now a member of the Reunion Records roster ñ prepares to launch into a very busy spring 2011 season with the release of her new worship album, I Will Praise You.

The new recorded project, releasing to physical and digital retail outlets on April 5, features the initial single ìShine Your Glory Down,î which has already drawn raves from radio programmers across the country.

ìItís about time!î shares an excited Cecil Vanhouten of the Family Life Network (Bath, NY). ìRebeccaís ëShine Your Glory Downí has the kind of upbeat worship feel thatís perfect for AC radio. A multi-faceted artist, a new label and a new record ñ the new yearís off to a great start.î

Also loving St. Jamesí new song is Kurt Wallace of WHZN Radio in Indianapolis, IN. ìI love upbeat, vertical songs,î he shares ìAnd when itís sung by one of our formatís most recognizable voices, I was quick to put it on ëThe Walk!íî

I Will Praise You marks St. Jamesí first studio project since 2005ís If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something, but that hardly means St. James has been resting on her laurels, keeping her schedule busy with live performances, film work and writing books. St. Jamesí ninth book, ìWhat Is He Thinking?î is scheduled for a September 2011 release through Hachette/Faithwords publishing.

Still, once back in the studio, St. James and producer Mark A. Miller (Casting Crowns) found the process of crafting the tracks for I Will Praise You a rewarding creative time.

Miller shares, ìIt was a pleasure working with Rebecca through the recording process on this project. She is a true professional with such a heart for worship. The songs on this record reflect that heart and even more so, her desire to help the listener draw closer to God. Iím proud to have worked alongside Rebecca. I know this record will be a blessing to anyone who listens.î

Rebecca St. James already has a packed schedule surrounding I Will Praise You, including street week appearances on FOX News Channel shows ìHannityî and ìFox & Friendsî already on the books, and a nationwide tour of mega-churches scheduled for weekends through June.

In advance of her April 5 album launch in New York City, and amid a flurry of wedding planning,
Rebecca will make an additional appearance on ìHannityî next week (Feb. 28) as a part of Sean Hannityís Great American Panel.
St. James is keeping a good bit of her schedule open, though, to adapt to a new phase of her lifeÖas a married woman. In April, St. James will wed Jacob Fink, who proposed on Christmas Day, 2010.
