It's a new year and there's lots of new gospel music to choose from. Several D.C.-based artists have released new music that is already capturing attention across the nation and getting radio airplay. Here's a look at what's new:
"Unfailing Love"~ Phillip Carter and SOV. The Stellar Award winner released his rendition of "A Friend Unfailing," a 1996 hit single originally recorded by the late Elder Q. Ricardo "Ricky" McCrimmon. The song is sure to please not only those who love good traditional gospel music but any music lover. Watch lyric video.

"I Can't Live Without You"~Derek Dunn. "It allows me to talk to God on a personal level through praise and worship," Dunn says of the new single. Listen here.
"Follow Thee"~James Murphy. His voice has a rich mixture of the urban contemporary gospel and R&B sound. He is currently preparing for the release of his debut album this summer. Listen here.
"All The Way"~ Marcus Akins. The newcomer burst on the scene last May with his debut EP, "The Pursuit of Hope" which arrived high on the iTunes chart and has gotten attention internationally.
