"You Don't Know How Blessed You Are ~ Album Review"

With You Don't Know How Blessed You Are, Gerald Hinton & the New Redeemers became the first vocal group to be signed to Savoy in 15 years. Hinton wrote and co-produced all but one of the album's 12 tracks, a cover of "Go the Distance" from the Disney feature Hercules that takes to Hinton and Denver A. Wright's contemporary gospel arrangement quite well. That's true for the rest of You Don't Know How Blessed You Are, too, which balances productions similar to those of Kirk Franklin and secular R&B artists, especially the vocal synthesis of "Surrender," with the more mature and measured approach of Hinton. It's not likely to have the crossover appeal of Franklin, but fans of the genre who seek it out will not be disappointed. ~ Wade Kergan, All Music Guide

"Gerald Hinton & the New Redeemers Win Award"


February 9, 2005




Raleigh, NC: The pendulum continues to swing in favor of Gerald Hinton and The New Redeemers. In addition to signing a contract with Malaco Records last year, the group was honored with the Favorite Video and Favorite CD of the Year Award at the 2005 American Gospel Quartet Convention in Birmingham, Alabama held January 18-22. The group showcased at Thursday’s luncheon and took quartet to the next level with a video presentation accompaniment.

George Stewart, Founder and Director of the American Gospel Quartet Convention stated, “Every now and then there comes a fresh and unique gospel music presentation. Gerald Hinton and The New Redeemers represented that during the 13th Annual 2005 American Gospel Quartet Convention. Our eyes and ears are open to his success.”

2005 promises to be a busy year for Hinton and The New Redeemers. Malaco Records is scheduling release of their next single, Meet Me In The Middle, which is sure to be another first in the industry. Hinton teams up with good friend and beach music phenom, Craig Woolard. Woolard was lead singer for the Embers for 27 years and now leads The Craig Woolard Band. This duet celebrates their third collaboration but the first release on a Hinton project. Prior releases featured Hinton in the background vocals in Love Don’t Come No Stronger, which garnered Woolard a Cammy Award.

Meet Me In The Middle is already playing on Gospel Traxx, a syndicated radio show produced by Walt Baby Love Productions, which is heard on over 125 affiliated radio stations around the world. An exclusive interview with Gerald Hinton will be aired on an upcoming show.

Gerald Hinton and The New Redeemers are currently accepting bookings for the You Don’t Know How Blessed You Are Tour. For booking information, contact Ruby Turner at Davin Records (919) 848-3470 or visit the website at or

Born in the small town of Apex, North Carolina, Hinton is one of eight children, and the only boy of three that is able to hear and talk. He is the only child to pursue a career in the music industry and enjoys the support of his large, loving family.

At the age of six, Hinton began singing with the church choir at St. Mary’s Free Will Baptist Church. Though he grew up listening predominantly to traditional gospel music, his style is nothing of the sort; his musical ability stretches beyond Gospel. His professional career began at the age of thirteen when he went on the road with Howard Thomas and the Pearly Gates. They sang acapella on live radio for three years, with Hinton acting as the lead singer. When they performed in concert a collection was always taken for the “Little Boy.”

Hinton went on to play with an R & B band in high school in the late seventies and traveled the east coast. After experiencing theater in high school, he attended Shaw University and majored in drama with a minor in music.

In the early eighties, Hinton returned to his Gospel roots when he began singing with Johnny Holloway and the Gospel Jubilees, which led him to the creation of Gerald Hinton and the New Redeemers. They released two projects, From Way Back and Groom Me. The album Groom Me produced the hit video It’s Me Oh LORD, which has aired on BET, the Word Network, the Dream Network, and other national and local television outlets. It reached number one on the MBC Top Gospel Video Countdown, and is still being played today.

Hinton has worked with many legendaries such as the Gospel Southern aires, Shirley Caesar, Lee Williams and the Spiritual Qcs, John P. Kee, the Mighty Clouds of Joy, Willie Neal and the Gospel Keynotes, and the Canton Spirituals. He has also collaborated with producers Willie Hill, Craig Woolard, former lead singer of the Embers, and Denver Wright.

Gerald’s latest CD entitled You Don’t Know How Blessed You Are was originally intended to be a solo project, but after his successful and stellar connection with music producer Denver Wright, it seemed only appropriate to include the entire group. You Don’t Know How Blessed You Are is a collection of works that can stir up movements of the limbs, praises from the heart, and great thoughts from the mind. Hinton brings forth his ministry by delivering songs such as the title track, a mid-tempo groove that motivates one to count their blessings, He I Owe, a haunting track that mimics the childhood song Old McDonald, and Meet you In the Middle, a duet with former Embers lead singer, Craig Woolard. It is evident GOD’s plan and timing for Gerald Hinton are at the forefront.
