First Listen: Philip and Dianita White revive a Winans classic

(December 31, 2017) Back in 1985, the legendary family group The Winans released Let My People Go, their most commercial album to date, and a disc that became a crossover smash. The opening track on that album was “Choose Ye,” an upbeat number featuring Vanessa Bell Armstrong that posited a fundamental challenge that Christians, and others, face everyday.

It has been a generation since that song graced popular radio, and now contemporary Gospel artist Philip White has brought it back to us in a fashion that is both fresh and faithful to the original. Produced by two time Dove Award nominated Phil Hughley, and featuring Philip’s wife Dianita in a duet, the song reminds us of how great a composition “Choose Ye” is, and also introduces us to the formidable talents of Mr. and Mrs. White.
