NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Lynda Randle and Friends: A Pilgrim’s Journey is slated to premiere on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) Thursday, February 17 at 8:00 pm ET. Randle’s debut network special will showcase stirring performances, poignant moments of reflection and renowned guests, all in celebration of Black History Month.
Delivering a range of American spirituals and classic songs of Inspiration from her upcoming release, Pilgrim Journey, Randle will welcome guests Tommy Sims—a GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer—and her brother, GRAMMY®-winning dc Talk founding member and Newsboys frontman Michael Tait, to the hour-long special, a presentation of TBN’s flagship program Praise.
Lynda Randle and Friends: A Pilgrim’s Journey will also spotlight segments filmed at locations integral to African American history in Middle Tennessee, including the McLemore House in Franklin, built and owned by former slave Harvey McLemore. Randle pauses to reflect on the troubled history of race relations in America while pointing viewers to the only Hope of true reconciliation and unity in our world—Jesus.
Further commemorating Black History Month, TBN’s Matt and Laurie Crouch hosted Randle for an extended discussion on last night’s Praise program. Offering a preview of her February 17 special, the broadcast also featured highlights spanning the Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter’s noteworthy career to date.
Randle’s Pilgrim Journey is set to release February 11 from Gaither Music Group (Capitol Christian Music Group/Universal Music) and marries Gospel, soul, blues and Americana soundscapes with the artist’s signature warm, rich vocals on new arrangements of popular Inspirational classics, spirituals and original selections. Produced by GRAMMY®-nominated, multi-Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan, the project includes such standout tracks as “Give Me Jesus,” a duet with Kimberly Schlapman of country supergroup Little Big Town; “I Want Jesus To Walk With Me,” featuring Tommy Sims (Eric Clapton, Sting); and the stirring “Motherless Child Medley,” a fan-favorite from Randle’s repertoire.
