Greater New Hope Mass Choir in Oxford, NC is having some foot-stomping church, and they don't intend to do it alone. They issue an exuberant invitation to "praise the Lord...for He is good, He is good, He is good" with their current single, "Come on Everybody," recorded live during a spiritual service.
"Come on Everybody" has all the hand clapping, horn stabbing, organ riffing, and tambourine shaking you'd expect in a traditional church choir song. Punctuated by pulsating bass and the lead vocal of the song's writer and producer Brian Foster--who is Greater New Hope Baptist Church's minister of music and co-founder of the North Carolina Community Choir (Malaco)--"Come on Everybody" has Sunday Morning written all over it.
