Eastchester, NY, Nov. 29 — Anticipations are high at Eric J. Hall Ministries as From the East, Eastchester Church’s praise band, plans its first single release for Dec. 11. “Master’s Plan” offers praise to God for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
“As Christmas time approaches, it’s important to recognize that the story of Jesus doesn’t end at the stable,” said Marcus Peña, musical director and worship leader at Eastchester Church. “This song helps point us toward the great works Jesus performed throughout his life and praises those miracles.”
“Master’s Plan,” written by Peña, finds inspiration in two Old Testament passages: Jeremiah 29:11-13 and Isaiah 54:16-17. Jeremiah speaks to God’s plans for us and our lives while Isaiah demonstrates God’s power of protection. Both His plans and protection stem from Jesus’ actions here on Earth.
From the East is comprised of Marcus Peña (lead vocals/songwriter/guitar), Briana Bradley (vocals), Jade Holmes (vocals), Larry Mcgowan (piano), Koby Hayon (guitar) and Nadav Snir-Zelniker (drums). Support members are Josè Acevedo (drums), Jonathon Goodley (vocals) and Dennis Lucas (bass).
“We are excited to be able to broaden our reach through the ministry of music,” Rev. Eric J. Hall, Eastchester minister, said. “This gives our church the unique opportunity to shine light on God’s glory.”
This single will be released at major music outlets, including CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Music and Tidal. It will also be available to stream on streaming services, including Pandora, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Rhapsody and more. The music video can be found at ericjhall.org .
