The charisma of a preacher, the attitude of a monk, the kindness of a human. This and much more is saxophonist Kirk Whalum. Those, who attended his concerts, will never forget him and his melodies. Kirk is like Grover Washington Jr. a legend, the shining light of music. He is a wanderer between two worlds. An in-demand artist in the smooth jazz scene he performed with Peter White, Rick Braun, Jonathan Butler, Gerald Albright and many more. Albums like For You (1998), Unconditional (2000), Kirk Whalum Performs the Babyface Songbook (2005), and Roundtrip (2007) received high acclaims and great acceptance by the listeners.
But his real passion is Gospel music and the worship to God. His Gospel hours are truly impressing and inspirational. He started his first Gospel project in 1998 with The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter One. His sophomore project in this genre was Hymns in the Garden (2000), followed by The Gospel According to Jazz, Chapter II (2002) and Chapter III (2010).
Lovecovers features inspirational covers of Stevie Wonder’s “Have A Talk with God,” Beyoncé’s “Love On Top,” and Whalum’s first ever studio recording of “I Will Always Love You.” If you live in the USA, then you can get your advance release from the website here http://lovecovers.kirkwhalum.com/.
