“Because Of You” Is Now Live On YouTube

One of the Caribbean’s leading praise and worship leaders and a seasoned recording
artist, Sherwin Gardner, is set to conquer the globe with his vibrant new album,
“Greater” (Flow Masters /Tyscot), which will release globally on May 26, 2017. The
fifteen-track project was recorded live at the SJPC House of Restoration Ministries
in St. John, Antigua. The set features riveting vocal cameos by urban gospel legend
Deitrick Haddon and Todd Dulaney who scored a massive hit with his No. 1 tune, “The
Anthem.” in 2016.

The “Greater” album is anchored by Gardner’s first American radio hit, “Because of
You.” The inspiring track recently debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard Gospel Airplay
chart five weeks ago and has been moving up ever since.  The devotional song was
inspired by his mother’s decision not to abort him when doctors informed her that he
would be born with birth defects because of radiation she received during her
pregnancy. “Thanks to God, I was born with no problems,” says Gardner.

When Gardner launched his career in 1995, Trinidadian church music was no different
from American gospel. “Everything that would come from America was accepted,” he
recalls.  “Everything that was reggae, dancehall or soca was considered secular
because the artists who sang that music were in the world so when I first made
gospel music that had a Caribbean flavor in it, I was criticized because the
churches were just listening to the beat instead of to the lyrics.” Gardner has been
a forerunner of creating gospel music with traditional Caribbean instrumentation.
He now has fifteen albums to his credit and is known for signature songs such as “I
Worship You,” “God’s Design” and “You.”
