Buzz Worthy 2017: “It Was Finished On The Cross”

buzzworthyThis week’s buzz worthy clip comes from Sisters.  As Christians around the world celebrate Good Friday, I thought it fitting to feature this song from the group’s latest album, Simply.

The first single from the album, “It Was Finished On The Cross”, is a powerful reminder of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.  A song that has been a part of Easter programs for over five years.

“It Was Finished On The Cross” was penned by Kristie Braselton and Regi Stone.

The fifth single from the album, “Never Gonna Give Up On You”, is a powerful message in song, featuring Tammy Dunaway.  This album is one every Southern Gospel listener should have in their collection.  I would easily rank it as one of the ten best albums released over the last five years.
