Radio personality, TV host, philanthropist, devoted husband, new father…these are just some of the many titles that can be used to describe Cory “Coco Brother” Condrey. This year, he’ll add yet another label behind his name, record producer.
On May 25th, Condrey will release his debut CD STAND 2010 on Tyscot Records. Featured on several tracks, Condrey is joined by an all-star cast of gospel greats like Israel Houghton, Smokie Norful, Bebe Winans, Canton Jones, Joann Rosario-Condrey and Tye Tribbett; STAND 2010 is an enthralling listening experience from the time you press play. If you’ve ever tuned in to Coco Brother’s nightly program, you’ll know just what to expect: hot music, revealing testimonies from well-known artists as well as his listening audience, and an endless amount of heart-pounding, life-changing worship.
According to Condrey, STAND 2010 is not just another means of expanding his growing entertainment empire. This CD has a far greater purpose.
For years, he has used his popular syndicated radio shows Coco Brother Live and The Spirit to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While not every one is afforded with such a public platform, Condrey believes anyone can still reach out to lost souls and make a major impact. This is the belief that inspired him to create the Stand Campaign and the upcoming STAND 2010 CD which serves as the soundtrack to the movement. “This campaign teaches believers that every one of them is important,” said Condrey, “You may never be called to speak on a microphone before thousands of people, but each of us is called to ministry, you are called to save souls through the life you live”.
The age-old adage “If you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything” reigns even more true in a society that bombards young people with messages of immorality and confuses religion with relationship. STAND 2010 was carefully crafted to include songs and inspirational moments (spoken words) that will encourage all believers to win souls with a renewed sense of purpose and urgency.
Fans will have a myriad of opportunities to become directly involved with both the STAND 2010 CD and national outreach efforts. Some of these opportunities include fan song submittal to be included as a bonus track on the STAND 2010 CD, fan-generated “STAND” video responses and Jesus Rallies.
From now until May 25th, fans can create videos showing their support for this movement by posting their very own STAND videos declaring they are “standing” for Jesus because…and asking others are they willing to take a stand. These clips, no longer than 5 minutes each, will be included in an online video campaign to promote the STAND 2010 CD. In addition, STAND will be making stops around the country during events called “Jesus Rallies”. If you are interested in having one of these rallies at your local church, please contact Tyscot Records 317-479-2343 x 302.
Fans will also get the opportunity to meet both Coco Brother and his wife, gospel songstress Joann Rosario Condrey during nationwide CD signings/Meet & Greets that are planned to celebrate the release of Stand 2010.
