In addition to bringing out new music, Platoon have stepped it up a notch this year by collaborating with TBN UK for a 1-hour TV special “A UK Gospel Celebration”, featuring candid roundtable conversations with some of UK’s leading Gospel artists and live music performances from Platoon artists. The best creative talent & inspiration historically originates from within the Gospel music scene, and the UK is no exception!
A listening party at Platoon 7 Studios on 31st August marked the start of this series of Gospel music activities planned in collaboration with leading Gospel artists and platforms to introduce the genre’s wealth of current talent and rich heritage to new audiences.
The now available duets showcase the amazing giftings of the artists, ahead of their original solo offerings and TBN TV Special scheduled for 8th September release.
