VIRTUE Returns with New Single "You Deserve" After 8 Years


Contemporary Gospel female trio VIRTUE returns after an eight year recording hiatus with their long-awaited first single "You Deserve" written and produced by Fred Jerkins (Beyoncé , Destiny's Child, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson) and Alvin Garrett (Joe, Deitrick Haddon, Ruben Studdard) to gospel radio in September 2014. The trio is slated to release their full length album in 2015 on their new record label home Mixed Bag Entertainment (founded by Christian Hip Hop artist Da Truth). 

Comprised of sisters Ebony Holland, Karima Kibble, and Heather Martin, VIRTUE is known for their hits such as "Get Ready," "Put Your War Clothes On," "Til' You Believe," "Lord, I Lift My Hands," and more. With five studio albums - VIRTUE (1997), GET READY (1999), VIRTUOSITY (2001), FREE (2003), and TESTIMONY (2006)-- they have sold well over 400,000 records.

"We are so excited and blessed to be able to have another opportunity to share our ministry with the world." [states Heather] "We've grown tremendously and God has shown us so many different things during the time we were away. We've missed performing together, our friends in the industry and especially all of our fans, so it's long overdue and we are ecstatic about this new season for Virtue!"

Label co-founder Gary Crockett explains, "We are beyond excited to have a group like Virtue signed to Mixed Bag Entertainment as one of our marquee artists. They are one of the original Gospel girl groups in the industry and to be able to work with a group that left such an impact in Gospel music is a blessing! It has been almost 10 years since the world has heard new music from them, so not only are we excited as a label, but we know Virtue fans are going to love what they have been working on this past year!"
