Gospel Recording Artist, Justin Newry (J.Newry) sets out to make a national impact with his second highly anticipated EP release, entitled #JNewryEP: The MS Edition. Half of the proceeds generated by the release will support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to assist in research and development to find a cure. #JNewryEP: The MS Edition will be available November 1st. Supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society hits home for the Durham artist.

“Having a mother diagnosed with MS, it’s been a desire of mine to create awareness of the disease as well as the importance of finding a cure. I decided to do it through the releasing of the EP.” Newry states, “With this release, our desire is not to only take the steps necessary to making a difference in my mother’s life by supporting this cause, but in the lives of individuals suffering from MS daily.”

The 7-song project, written, produced and arranged by Newry, features the hit single “I’ll Say Yes” and feet stomping, head bobbing tracks such as “Praise Through” and “This Joy.” Released independently by JoyUs Ministries, the EP will be available November 1st via http://www.jnewry.com, ITunes and Amazon.com.

J.Newry’s list of accomplishments include arranging, teaching and directing an original composition to a 200 plus voice choir for the New York State Empire Baptist Congress of Christian Education Retreat Choir at the age of 17, previous director of the Brandeis University Gospel Choir, previous minister of music at New Hope Baptist Church in Boston, MA as well as contributing to a number of churches and organizations in the Capitol District Area of New York State, both creatively and musically.
