New ministry by veteran Jermaine Bollinger, Little Egypt Worship, releases debut single 'Revival'
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Little Egypt Worship, a new worship ministry created by music industry veteran Jermaine Bollinger, has released its first single to digital platforms. “Revival,” written and produced by Bollinger, is available for streaming and purchase, with a radio single set for early 2022. A video for the single is available on YouTube.
The new worship group -- and the new single -- are the result of a time of waiting in Bollinger’s life, he says.
“I had just stepped down from my job and concluded my previous ministry,” Bollinger explains. “Among personal issues and tragedies, things were at an all-time low me. To be honest, the circumstances navigated me to a pretty dark place. I became frustrated with my life, my situation, with God. I found myself asking, ‘What is all of this for?’”
Soon after, Bollinger was diagnosed with nodes on his vocal chords, a situation that meant he had to change his life and lifestyle to be able to continue singing.
“I was looking for a change, an awakening, a revival,” Bollinger shares.
It was during this season while trying to refocus that Bollinger wrote a song about change, change in his heart, in his life and, ultimately, change for the world.
“It seems like we’ve been spinning our wheels with this pandemic in particular,” Bollinger says, “History will remember this time in textbooks and on the internet. My only hope is that something beautiful can be birthed from this terrible situation the world finds itself in."
“The question that will be asked by our descendants years from now is, ‘How did the church respond?’ I wanted to make sure,” Bollinger says, “I was used by God to do exactly what He wanted me to do, when He wanted me to do it.”
Little Egypt Worship, based in Illinois, is not affiliated with a specific church. The group is available for morning services, church events, youth events and special gatherings for congregations and the community.
