After a four-year hiatus, gospel star Jekalyn Carr returns to music with her new, self-titled album, Jekalyn. 

“Wow, family.. It’s been four years since I’ve recorded an album,” she wrote in her Instagram announcement. “I’ve grown both musically & spiritually. Now, I want to invite you all to hear what God has given me for the world.”

The upcoming project, expected out on Friday, October 20, is preceded by “I Believe God,” the Billboard Gospel Airplay chart topper released in February this year.
