Universal Music Christian Group/Fontana recording artist LeJuene Thompson is set to release her third CD, “The Evolution of Me”, in the spring of 2012. The lead single from the CD is called, “Let God Do It,” and will impact gospel radio this month.
Written by LeJuene and Cedric Thompson, the first single from the CD, “Let God Do It,” was penned at a time when they were both feeling discouraged. Having worked on the album for almost two years, the journey was filled with challenges including family illnesses and deaths. “We were both at rock bottom, ground zero and we came to the realization that there was nothing we could do about these situations on our own, so we had to just sit back and let God do it,” she said. “We wrote this song to let people know that even when no amount of money, no amount of friends, can change your situation, you can let God do it.”
This mid-tempo song is performed in a classic contemporary gospel style, with a laid back musical accompaniment that allows LeJuene to show off her warm tones, wide range, and signature flourishes in a song that both implores and challenges the listener to “Let God Do It.” The single was produced by Cedric Thompson for Ced’s Productions. It also features their son Cedric “CJ” Thompson, Jr. on the drums.
LeJuene is thrilled to be in the midst of completing her forthcoming album. It is nothing less than a true Labor of Love. She wrote several songs on the CD with her husband, Cedric Thompson, a veteran and award-winning musician, songwriter and producer. For LeJuene, writing is a relatively new venture for her, but she says that sharing her experiences is a blessing for her, and she hopes it will bless others.
“More than anything, I hope the songs on this CD will give people hope and strength,” she said. “In these difficult times, people need to hear that there is hope. They just need to know that they don’t have to be afraid, because there is light at the end of the tunnel and that, no matter what happens, they can pick up the pieces and build upon whatever they have left and make it into whatever they want it to be.”
