President White Releases New CD to Celebrate CU's 160th Birthday
MURFREESBORO, NC – Chowan University’s President, Dr. M. Christopher White, has officially released his fourth CD entitled Celebrate as part of CU’s 160th Anniversary Celebration.

With twenty-two instrumental songs, Celebrate is a program of traditional Christian hymns and gospel favorites, full of familiar refrains and comforting melodies. Celebrate includes songs you will know by heart such as “I Love to Tell the Story”, “There Is Power in the Blood”, and “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”.

“These songs tend to evoke a simpler time in the past,” says Dr. White, talking about the comforting effect of his easy-listening music, “When most church songs were done on the piano.”

The intent of the music is to provide the listener with relaxation from the stress of daily life, with encouragement to face the future, and with a sense of thanksgiving for the blessings of life.

The entire CD was produced on the Chowan University campus, and all proceeds will be placed in an endowment fund of the Chowan University Christian Service Association to provide scholarship assistance for ministerial students.

Dr. White’s previous CDs, The Spirit Soars and In the Garden, are also calming collections of hymns, and A Chowan Christmas contains Christmas carols and hymns in the spirit of the season.
