Boasting seven tracks, this marks the third studio release from the inspirational singing sensation. Born in Trinidad and Tobago and staking his claim on the music scene since 2008, Fontinelle is a seasoned singer/songwriter and a prolific performer, who has been casting righteous seeds and earning fans far and wide, ever since.
“My mission is to spread the message of the Gospel to different parts of the world and let people know that there is still hope and this hope is found in Jesus Christ,” discloses Fontinelle. “This album’s purpose is to encourage and motivate the people of this world to move forward in life with Christ.
We can be anything God wants us to be. To my fans, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, so trust in Him.” Fontinelle’s mission is already bearing fruit as Reconciliation receives a coveted feature on the iTunes U.S. Reggae New & Noteworthy chart, during its week of release.
Fontinelle is assisted by not one but five Gospel artists, who are featured on five of the seven tracks, making this compilation a collaborative effort among the Gospel reggae community. Featured are Levi Subero on the lead single “I Will Survive,” Koen Duncan on “Last Days,” Jah Kiley on “You Are,” JSquare on “Stand Your Ground,” and Virtuous on “Be Still.” Producers Koen Duncan, Monty G and Cloud 9 Productions lend their talents on the production of Reconcilation, alongside the album’s producer Akeunde Pemberton, who is at the helm of JahLight Records, making this compilation a true meeting of the minds.
This EP is a taste of what is to come on Fontinelle’s debut album My Hope, scheduled for release next year from JahLight Records. “Kwesi Fontinelle is one of the most humble singers I know,” states Pemberton. “He is hard working, talented, full of conviction and committed to getting out the Gospel through music to the people. So it is a blessing to work with him on any given project.”
Reconciliation was executive produced by Pemberton and Jason Joefield, manager of Heaven Touching Earth (HTE) Music, the label to which Fontinelle is signed. Kwesi Fontinelle – Reconciliation is a rare and refined offering for all Gospel fans and provides an intensive feel of who he is as an artist, and will undoubtedly draw even more ears to his remarkable music.
