Pediatrician, Eric A. Yancy Releases Debut Gospel CD

Indianapolis, IN � Thursday Productions is proud to present the debut project of its newest recording artist, Eric A. Yancy MD. Eric's first gospel CD entitled, "Modern Spiritual" is a refreshing compilation of his original songs and a contemporary take on some of gospel's greatest classics.

Dr. Yancy is a practicing pediatrician in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. For the past three decades, he's been caring for and providing medical care to the children of Indianapolis. His daily dealings with their every day challenges inspired the album's title song. He wrote "Modern Spiritual" after hearing an early morning news report about the tragic murder of one of his patients.

Eric's beautiful baritone sound delivers life-affirming lyrics that will lift you up and have you praising God. "Modern Spiritual" extends the direction of contemporary gospel music with its smooth arrangements and joyous beats! Not only will the music take you to a place where you'll reflect, praise, worship and testify; but it will also transcend the divide between gospel veterans and gospel newcomers. Eric's debut CD has something for everyone; from the strength and familiarity of the gospel classic, "My Soul Has Been Anchored" to the contemporary rap on the Old Negro Spiritual, "Motherless Child".

A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Eric has been singing all of his life. "Modern Spiritual" is the first of many projects highlighting his life long devotion to God and his passion to sing. Dr. Yancy's distinctive voice and matchless style are sure to make a mark on the music world.
