The Sing-Off's Committed Set Album Release

06/23/2011
.
Committed, the winners of the second season of a show called The Sing-Off, will release their self-titled debut album on August 30th. Here is what Epic Record had to say about it:

The sextet's debut album features a mix of hand-selected cover songs, including their tear-inducing rendition of Michael Jackson's "Hold My Hand" which helped seal their win on the season finale as well as several originals.

Their first single "Break Free" is an uplifting anthem laced with the group's well-known inspirational lyrics, co-written by the group's own, Therry Thomas. Formed in Huntsville, Alabama in 2003, the group, comprised of Dennis "DJ" Baptiste, Tommy Gervais, Geston Pierre, Robert Pressley, Maurice Staple and Theron "Therry" Thomas, arrange all of their own music using only their vocals as instruments to emulate a full band sound.

"We are influenced by a lot of different music, so the album is an eclectic mix---jazz, gospel, blues and R&B all wrapped into one sound," Committed says about the album. "It's different and edgy, there's a little bit of something for everybody."

Committed will hit the road this summer in support of the upcoming release of their debut album. With nearly nine million viewers tuning in to witness the guys of Committed being crowned the champions of The Sing-Off, fans throughout the US will get another chance to experience the group's unique harmonies with powerful lead vocals and booming bass lines that made them popular amongst their fans. The group won over audiences from the first episode leading to an astounding number of viewer votes and the most downloaded songs throughout the series.

Committed kicked off their victory lap by performing on NBC's Today Show, NAACP Image Awards and the Dove Awards. The group will be featured in an upcoming episode of BET's Sunday Best as well as season 3 of The Sing-Off.

NBC's "The Sing-Off" returns this fall with two-hour episodes culminating with a live season finale.
