    (January 20, 2023) Gene Moore was welcomed with open arms by both soul and Gospel audiences with his highly successful Motown Gospel debut a few years ago. But before then, Moore had been a stalwart background singer for artists like Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton and India.Arie.

    Now India returns the favor on Moore’s brand new single, a tasty duet about love and faithfulness that could apply to our relationship with God or with a mate. “Beautiful” is a declaration of gratitude

    It’s so hard to imagine my life without you
    You mean more than this whole world to me
    Even if I was a billionaire, without you it’d be minimum wage
    The love you give sends me to outer space.

    Not many songs are grin-ear-to-ear declarations of unadulterated love, but “Beautiful” is a cut that gets us grooving as well as counting our own blessings. Check out this great song and pairing below.
