West Orange, New Jersey (February 9, 2012): Contemporary Gospel Artist/Songwriter Carl Brister releases his inspirational version of the classic hip hop soul track “Love No Limit” as performed originally by R&B Icon Mary J. Blige. The up-tempo urban gospel remake features new inspirational and uplifting lyrics written by Carl Brister.
Carl Brister states, “I believe now more than ever, people really need to hear about God’s love and also have a good time. So I re-wrote the lyrics and made it a party song that feels good.”
Carl Brister’s third solo album UNDEFEATED is an uplifting feel-good contemporary gospel CD that crosses over into various elements of Rhythm & Praise, Neo-Soul, Hip-Hop, and Christian Contemporary music. It satisfies the listener who enjoys a variety of today’s music, yet desire lyrics that feed the spirit and soul. This powerful 12-song disc distinctively displays the vocal, songwriting, and musical growth of this gifted and talented artist.

With many tragedies, triumphs, pains, and celebrations, this new CD clearly showcases Carl Brister’s most enduring collection of songs he has ever written. Each of these songs have all found their place on his triumphant new CD appropriately titled UNDEFEATED.
Carl Brister adds, “I pushed myself to go outside of my box and intentionally worked with a lot of new people who would stretch me as a singer and songwriter in order to grow.” The result is an anointed CD that delivers stand out original and cover songs, which includes the guitar driven contemporary christian worship anthem and title track “Undefeated”.
