Kim Burrell Church Career

The Trinity Temple Full Gospel Mass Choir of Dallas and Houston’s Inspirational Sounds Mass Choir continued Burrell’s performances. She reprised “Jesus Paid It All” on the 1996 album Worked It Out by Ricky Dillard & New G. Her self-titled debut album was published in 1995 by the Texas-based boutique label Pearl Records. She thus signed with Tommy Boy Gospel and issued her second album, Everlasting Life, in 1999. Asaph Alexander Ward served as producer. The album’s debut position on the Billboard Gospel Charts was number 10.

In November 2000, at the annual COGIC Convention in Memphis, Tennessee, Burrell recorded the live album Live In Concert. The album was released in 2001. It was nominated for a Grammy in 2002 for Best Soul Gospel Album. Even though Tommy Boy Gospel went out of business soon after the release of Live In Concert, she had already acquired a recording deal with Elektra Records by 2002. Under this deal, she only made a cameo on the all-star gospel song “Higher Ground.” The bonus track for Missy Elliott’s album Miss E… So Addictive debuted this song, which afterward appeared on Karen Clark Sheard’s album 2nd Chance. Burrell has kept up his live performances and collaborations with other artists.

Despite only sometimes being active as a recording artist, she founded and oversees the yearly Ephesians 4 conference, a workshop for performing artists. As a guest artist on R. Kelly’s “3-Way Phone Call” in 2004, Burrell joined Kelly Price. Burrell portrayed Price’s “prayer companion” in the song, which had a soap opera-like vibe. Everlasting Life is the name of the major-label debut album by jazz/gospel singer Burrell. For the album, Burrell won the 1999 Gospel Music Excellence Award for Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year as well as the 2000 Stellar Award for Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year.

On Clinton’s 2008 cover album, George Clinton and Some Gangsters of Love, the original song “Mathematics of Love” was featured. No Ways Tired, Burrell’s first studio album in 11 years, was made available on April 7 by Shanachie Records. The album, which takes its name from a timeless James Cleveland hymn, features gospel standards including “My Faith Looks Up To Thee,” “What A Friend We Have In Jesus,” “O Lamb Of God,” and “I Surrender All” that has been reinterpreted. For the soundtrack of the 2016 movie Hidden Figures, Burrell and Pharrell Williams worked together on the song “I See a Victory.”
