Malaco Music Group Releases Second Single On the Mississippi Mass Choir “ONLY ONE WAY HOME.”

Following the chart-topping success of the Mississippi Mass Choir’s year-end #1 single, “The Promise,” Malaco Music Group proudly announces the release of their highly anticipated second single, “Only One Way Home,” poised to captivate audiences with its powerful message and infectious sound. “This song unapologetically states that Jesus is the Only One to have come down from heaven and returned there. He not only knows the Way, but He is the Way,” says Jerry Mannery, who co-wrote the song and is the Mississippi Mass Choir executive director. “All other ways you may seek or find will lead you astray… like the blind leading the blind.” “One of my dreams was to sing with the Mississippi Mass Choir,” says Gospel legend Paul Porter. “As a special guest on “Only One Way Home, the dream came true.”  According to co-writer and lead singer Benjamin “Benji” Cone III, “The song takes you straight to that small wooden church in Mississippi where the choir used to march. The infectious sound of the vocals, foot stomping, hand clapping, and New Orleansesque trombone permeates the walls, inviting listeners outside the church walls to join in and sing along.”

It was part of a much-heralded Mississippi Mass Choir live recording at Word of Life Church in Flowood, MS, which also included special guest(s) Tina Campbell, Brian Courtney Wilson, Crystal Aikin, Rev. Milton Biggham, and Paul Porter. The whole album, which will be the 11th from the Mississippi Mass Choir, will be released later this year. Currently celebrating 34 years of ‘serving God through song,’ the Mississippi Mass Choir has received numerous accolades, including three Grammy Award nominations, 12 Stellar Gospel Music Awards—including the Thomas A. Dorsey Notable Achievement Awards—induction into The Mississippi Music Museum Hall of Fame, Billboard Gospel Artist of the Year and Gospel Record of the Year recognition, a Soul Train Music Award, and countless other honors. They have spread the Gospel through song on international stages in Japan, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, the Bahamas, South Africa, the Canary Islands, and Greece, where they were the first Gospel group to perform at the historic Acropolis in Athens.
