In celebration of Black Music Month, Grammy-nominated, and multiple award-winning Gospel artist VaShawn Mitchell is offering fans an exclusive chance to meet him and purchase a signed copy of his current EP Cross Music at select Walmart stores throughout June.

Mitchell is scheduled to make appearances at the following Walmart locations:

Burlington, NJ (Philadelphia) - Saturday, June 16 - 2:00 p.m. 

Clinton, MD (Washington DC) - Sunday, June 17 at 2:00 p.m.

Hammond, IN (Chicago) - Saturday, June 23 at 2:00 p.m.

Released in April, Cross Music is a limited-edition EP containing five songs that highlight the work of Christ on the cross, generating original songs for the Easter season and beyond. During Black Music Month, Walmart will offer the physical Cross Music album exclusively for $5, which includes the current single, "He Got Up," featuring Gospel music legend Dorinda Clark Cole. The song is quickly climbing the radio charts and resonating with Gospel music listeners and can be streamed at the end of this article.

Cross Music serves as the lead-in to Mitchell's 20thAnniversary landmark release The 20/20 Experience which was originally conceptualized as 20 songs to be released throughout 2018, but has now been confirmed as a complete album of all-new music slated for release in early 2019. Songs from The 20/20 Experience will reflect Mitchell's journey from choirs to praise and worship with an emphasis on inspiration, encouragement, and hope. A new single from the upcoming album will be released later this year.

Despite a rapidly changing music industry, Mitchell remains one of the most sought-after voices with a reach that has now expanded globally. He continues to evolve and has played an important part in the careers of several leading artists of today. Mitchell rose to national prominence with his breakout hit "Nobody Greater" in 2010, followed by the chart-topping "Turning Around For Me," and the recent No. 1 hit "Joy."
