Gospel Recording Artist Bill Moss Jr.'s new album will be on store shelves nationwide Tuesday, July 9.  The recently-released "Manifested Favor" album - backed by Salathiel Records and produced by the native Detroiter's production company BMJ Productions - will be available for consumers at Wal-Mart stores throughout the country for the price of $14.98.   

The 17-track album also will be available nationally within Christian bible bookstores and record stores nationwide. 

"This album is an expression of my life during a very challenging time - a time when God revealed His power through every trial I encountered," Moss said.  "I began to write about the things I went through, so that someone else could hear this music and be encouraged through their struggles."   

Gospel music greatness is in his genes. And, Moss is definitely walking in the gifts handed down to him by his family of legendary gospel music superstars.  Behind the scenes, as a music producer, writer and director, the multi-talented artist already has made significant strides on the gospel music scene.  Moss has layers of talent within him and is now presenting more of his vocal abilities to the world with the release of the "Manifested Favor" album, his first solo project.   

Bill Moss Jr. (named for his father the late Bill Moss Sr.) began playing the piano at age five.  The world first took notice that Bill Jr. had talent during a live performance of his parents, Bill Moss & the Celestials, a group that was formed in Detroit in the 1960s with his wife, Evangelist Essie Moss.  Bill Moss Sr. was inducted into the International Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004. 

Bill Jr. honed in on his talents under the guidance of his aunt, the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, mother of the world-renowned gospel vocal group, The Clark Sisters.  Additionally, Moss served as National Chief Musician in the Church of God in Christ for five years. 

Bill Moss Jr. has recorded professionally for top artists like Hezekiah Walker, Kelly Price, Karen Clark-Sheard, Byron Cage and J Moss (his brother).  As a Music Director, Bill Moss Jr. has collaborated with Walter Hawkins, J Moss, Byron Cage, The Evereadys, Dorothy Norwood, Timothy Wright and T.J. Hemphill.  He has toured internationally with his cousin Dorinda Clark-Cole and with his parents.  He has proven to be an asset to all who he works with in the music industry.  The last six albums he has worked on have received three Grammy nominations, 19 Stellar nominations, one American Music Award nomination and five Soul Train Music Award nominations.  

Manifested Favor was recorded live in Southfield, MI. A CD and Video Release Party was held in celebration of the album in March at Seldom Blues in Detroit.  The album officially dropped Nationally on July 9.
