Release The Sound has special meaning for Berry. The song and the project were inspired by the teachings of her late pastor, Dr. Zachary Tims. ”Pastor Tims was preaching a series called, ‘It’s In Your Mouth’”, recounts Madelyn. ”He was talking about the importance of speaking the Word of God and the power that is in our words. A lot of the songs, including the title tune, “Release The Sound”, were inspired by Dr. Tims”. He is memorialized on the CD as he opens up the project with a stirring introduction.
Recorded live at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, FL, the 16-track CD showcases the musical and spiritual gifts of Berry Tight Recording Artist Madelyn Berry. Produced by Taron Berry, Madelyn’s husband, and Darrius Jamar, the CD and accompanying DVD take listeners from the highs of praise to the reverence of worship.

Famed gospel singer Darwin Hobbs joins Madelyn on the amazing tune, “Sound of a Worshiper” and popular praise and worship leader Martha Munizzi shares the stage with Berry on the beautiful song, “You Are God”.
