CHEVELLE FRANKLYN RELEASES NEW ALBUM "SET TIME" @ChevellFranklyn
Released in its Set Time: New Chevelle Franklyn Album Reveals the Importance of Solitude
Where has Chevelle Franklyn been in the ten years since her last studio album His Way and her new album Set Time?
Apparently at home, in Jamaica and appropriately both touring the world and spending a lot of time with God.
The former secular sensation turned Psalmist powerhouse lives in Jamaica, but according to Chevelle, “doors kept opening up all over the world”. This was enough for her to stay moderately busy yet still active in the studio. “God opened doors in Nigeria, Ghana and Zimbabwe, I mean all over Africa, and the world by extension – London, The Middle East, The States and Europe, so I figured people were wondering if I migrated or something. God was doing His thing, I kept receiving new music but the season was not yet fulfilled for music to be released”.
The 'Set Time' Album
Chevelle Franklyn's new album, Set Time chronicles the journey thus far. “I could not rush, I had to learn patience and trust the process”.
Two decades ago in the 90’s her hits Dancehall Queen with Beenie Man and Mr. Lover Man with Shabba Ranks exploded onto the world scene and catapulted her to the “who’s who” in the music industry. “I was going to all these music industry parties the likes of Janet Jackson album launch in Paris and also Mariah Carey’s but there was real void, one that I knew at the time that only Jesus could fill.
The 18 track album, her third Jamaican studio project, laced with powerful worship anthems, memorable praise songs and moving ballads to her first love – Jesus – will reconnect older listeners and entice new listeners as well.

The album opens with a light Reggae, Summery Sing-J track “First Love” An attractive opening with airy vocals over smooth reggae beats, a sound characteristic to Chevelle Franklyn; listeners will all too easily remember the soprano stylings of Franklyn that they have come to know and love.
This song as Chevelle Franklyn puts it, “is about returning to your First Love, Jesus Christ and letting go of any distractions”
What’s not distracting? The range of her musical prowess. In fact, many of the stunning tracks on this new project showcase, a range of diversity from her punch as a DJ to the ease with which she vocalizes, light and breathy at one end then powerful and captivating at another; there’s something for every listener.
Currently booked for dates in Australia and Nigeria before the end of 2017, Franklyn knows that the journey thus far is continuing to mold her to be more Christ-like every step of the way, sharing her gift with the world.
Speaking of sharing with the world, one such track Let All Nations, a CCM inspired worship anthem is enough to make you pause and reflect on the Sovereignty of the Almighty. “I remember God giving me this song about seven years ago and I have been singing this song to nations around the world; it has been very well received.

Another treat for listeners is that this album features some of her friends in mainstream gospel.
I have A Father, featuring Grammy Award winning artist Pastor Donnie McClurkin, is one half of the double-combo lead singles for the album, (the other, No Foreign god). I Have a Father is an Afro-Caribbean party starter, to get you moving. The track is a medley of popular African worship songs. “It’s interesting how Africans worship. It’s intense, it’s real and very deep. Just thinking about how God has showed me so many things every time I take a trip to Africa and I am amazed – for them worship is essential and a lifestyle.
The project also features another Grammy Awards winning artist Israel Houghton, South Africa’s iconic worship leader Lionel Peterson and one of Nigeria’s very best, Frank Edwards.
Always one to master the quality of her music and allow the Spirit to lead her ministry, the songwriter/minister/producer believes the songs on this album had to come at this point, and not before. “This is the time and I am ready to share it with the world, this is the set time.
Chevelle Franklyn’s Set Time was released August 25, 2017 on all digital platforms worldwide.

About Mel Melody Music Enterprises:
Mel Melody Music Enterprises, Owned and Managed by Melisa (Mel Melody) Dyce, first launched as a Public Relations and Social Media Marketing Company, solely for Ministers of the Gospel. It was first named, Mel Melody Music Marketing, which was long lived. The company is based in Jamaica but does not restrict it's services to Natives only.
The love for music, passion for writing and zeal for the Gospel of Christ to reach the four corners of the world breath life into this endeavor.
Upon the growing requests for her services, she took the great advice given and started her own company after years of marketing for many Artistes under their umbrellas. Her work and writing abilities were noticed by many and she was then asked to take on other tasks by Gospel Artistes, Producers, and even Radio Stations; including Event Planning and Artiste Management. She took the bull by the horns. Melisa could no longer limit her company to Marketing and advertise it by its former name. Hence, emerged the new revised name, Mel Melody Music Enterprises.
Melisa has always had a bigger vision of being a Humanitarian and aiding the lost and hungry. God has finally brought her passions together and her vision to life with The Remnant Tour.

About CHRISTIAN LEGENDARY AND IMPACT AWARD (CLIMA Awards)
Celebration and appreciation triggers hard work and persistency. It also motivates God and human to do more. When you give thanks to God, you are creating and opportunity for a double honour. This principle is fully understood and practiced by the unbelievers. They tend to celebrate and award their Leaders, Musicians and even nudity in the name of Fashion Award while the Christians are busy segregating and criticizing each other, quarrelling and down casting our faith instead of praying for unity, expansion and abundant grace.
God has been faithful and has shown His grace to Nigerians as far as Christianity is concerned. We have witnessed influx and increase in the number of converts, miracles, breakthrough and testimonies by the special grace of God. Our Ministers and Ministries have been a positive influence across the globe despite the fact that we have wolves in the midst of the sheep.

It is aimed at celebrating genuine anointing and impactful Men of God with high level of integrity, hard work and great input to the sustenance of our faith despite all odds.
