Washington, DC (April 8, 2024) – Things are going up, up, up for the 3x GRAMMY®  Award nominated, gospel supergroup, Anthony Brown & group therAPy.  The Washington, D.C. based troupe’s anthemic 2012 gospel classic, “Worth,” was recently certified platinum for a million sales by the Recording Industry Association of America® (RIAA). The track spent 24 weeks atop Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart a decade ago and was initially certified gold in the fall of 2019. That’s not all the good news though. The dynamic group is co-headlining a 30+ city gospel concert tour with showman, Pastor Mike Jr., Bri Babineaux, and Deitrick Haddon.

The 18th annual McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour has partnered with the I Got Away tour team to bring a night of uplifting music to over 30 cities over the next few months. The tour kicks off in Nashville, TN on April 26th and will run through June with the possibility of a second leg in the fall. The dates come on the heels of the release of the group’s sixth album, Affirmations (Key of A / Tyscot / FairTrade). The twelve-track set showcases their polished, soul-stirring grasp of contemporary gospel music with touches of Classical, Pop, Pentecostal, and even Celtic flavoring. The first radio single, “Speak Your Name,” peaked at No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart in late 2023. The new single “Up Up Up” debuted at No. 29 on Billboard and No. 30 on Mediabase’s respective Gospel Airplay charts last week. Listen Link: https://fts.lnk.to/ABup
