The buzz about one of the Gospel industry’s best kept secrets, SENSERE, continues to surge as the masses are quickly discovering what all the talk is about. Often called the gospel version of Earth, Wind and Fire, SENSERE is currently celebrating the release of their third independent full-length project, “God, Family, The Band” (Wright Sound Records/IndieBlu) currently sitting at #22 on the Billboard Gospel Album charts. And as the lead single “WIN” continues to climb up the radio charts instantly catching people’s attention with one listen, SENSERE presents the brand new visual for their inspirational soul anthem.
Directed by SENSERE’s longtime creative director, Simon Muchnik, the boxing gym themed visual serves as the perfect backdrop for the James Brown inspired song. Shot in the band’s hometown of Miami, FL, the video follows a young boxer training for the fight of his life. And despite adversity and hardships during the grueling training process, the young athlete wins the proverbial knockout in the final round! The top 40 radio single also showcases all 10-members in their performance scenes dancing inside of a real boxing ring filmed at 20th Street Studios.
This month the band prepares for performances during the week of the 34th Gospel Stellar Awards in Las Vegas at various events including The Stellar Gospel Radio Announcers Award, Root Magazine 10th Anniversary Celebration, Love & Lyric Showcase presented Gerald and Tammi Haddon and right afterwards, SENSERE will be presenters at the 2nd Annual Soar Radio Gospel Awards in Rockford, Illinois.
God, Family, The Band Vol. 1 is available now for download on all streaming outlets.

Billed as “one of Gospel music’s only authentic, premiere soul bands”, Miami, Florida’s Sensere draws inspiration from a wide array of artists, including the Temptations, Earth, Wind and Fire, Mint Condition, and the Mighty Clouds of Joy. Formed in 2003 by multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, and arranger James Wright, the ten-member ensemble released their debut album, The Soul of Future Worship, in 2011. It was followed by a nationwide tour and appearances on The 700 Club, Bobby Jones Gospel, and TBN’s 15th Street Live television programs. In 2015, they released their sophomore release, Kingdom Therapy, which peaked at number 13 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart on the strength of the songs “Love,” “Holla,” and “Faith Equals Happiness.”
