Beverly Hills, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/09/2014 -- The Salvation Army is turning to gospel’s newest sensation, Raquel “Roqué” (pronounced “Rocky”) Herring, to kick off Praise and Worship at The Salvation Army’s Crestmont College Campus’ SoCal Celebration in Rancho Palos Verdes on Saturday, April 12.
“It is exciting to have Roqué lead in with Praise and Worship. She is like stick of dynamite. She is a true praise and worship leader”, Steve Wimberly of The Salvation Army. “I am excited The Salvation Army has asked me to be a part of this celebration. It is such a great time of year and it is always in season to praise and worship Jesus,” says Roque. “I am so humbled and honored by this awesome privilege and responsibility.”
Raquel Roque Herring is an American actress, singer, songwriter and producer. As a child star, Roque showcased her talents on Ed McMahon’s popular TV show “Star Search,” where she won Best Teen Vocalist and Best Teen Performer. She also holds the distinction of being the first African-American female Mouseketeer to be a part of the cast of Disney Channel’s “Mickey Mouse Club,” home to superstars as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera “The Voice“, Justin Timberlake and others, and went on to success in theater and in Hollywood.
Roqué will be serenading The Salvation Army with two songs from her recently released album ‘Loud for Christ’: Drown out the Darkness. The high-spirited hit first single “Thank You” and its remix titled Thank You (La La Remix) is a praise anthem with an unwavering message of gratefulness, unfailing love and sacrifice showcasing Roqué’s worship sensibility and solo pop sweetness of Kari Jobe with the abilities of someone who’s been in the game much longer than just one album. ‘He Is God’ finely straddles the line of pop and worship with excellent execution of Roqué’s personal testimony all while exalting God. The delivery on Loud for Christ constantly shifts between full reverent worship and catchy pop and R&B hooks with ease.
