Platinum-Selling Female Trio Trin-i-tee 5:7 Prepare to Release "T57" on Spirit Rising Music September 18th!

Their First Project Released on Mathew Knowles' Gospel Division, Spirit Rising Music -- a Division of Music World Entertainment

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - After a four-year hiatus, platinum-selling trio Trin-i-tee 5:7 is back and ready to release "T57," the songbirds' new musical collection on Mathew Knowles' Gospel division Spirit Rising Music, September 18th.

The project flaunts the style and musical edginess that first made Trin-i-tee 5:7 a hit in the late 90s. "T57" finds Chanelle, Angel and Adrian providing twelve memorable tracks dealing with everyday situations wrapped in musical elements of R&B, soul, hip hop and gospel.

The three women take much of the songwriting credits on the project -- a definite sign that "T57" is the personal reflection of the group -- and hit producer Walter Milsap (Yolanda Adams, Alicia Keys, Usher & Dave Hollister) delivers the 1st single "Listen," and two other unforgettable songs "I Need You" and an uplifting anthem titled "Beautiful Girl."

Music World Entertainment's production team led by Mathew Knowles -- The Bama Boyz, Solange Knowles and DJ Static -- rounds off the group's highly anticipated and ground-breaking project.

Not afraid to hit the listener hard from beat one, "I Still Love You" is sung from the perspective of a brokenhearted woman who just can't get over her man. Merging a spiritual message over a classic soul sound, the song is cleverly penned and will find many women nodding heads in agreement.

Another standout track comes from the pen of Solange Knowles. "Like U" is a catchy urban track about how an earthly relationship can't compare to a spiritual one. The R&B-tinged song samples maestro Richard Smallwood's classic "I Love The Lord" over a bed of slick beats.

"We've touched on topics that you don't typically hear mentioned in songs -- as in our song, 'Like U.' There's nothing wrong with having a relationship," says Adrian. "As Christian women, we have them and we learn from them. This song is a reminder that we as women need to keep the big picture in mind; we can't make permanent decisions based on temporary situations."

Another scorcher is the urban, beat-banging "God's Triangle." The James Brown-influenced track will find the listener "stuck in the middle" of a fabulous song. "U Saved Me," the mega-hit from noted producer and songwriter R. Kelly, is tastefully redone by the group as well.

A beautiful worship song, "I Will Lift," is a solemn and moving cut. Written from the heart of Angel, the song gives us a glimpse into a discussion she had with the Lord. "When I wrote the song," says Angel, "I was having a conversation with God telling Him what I thought about Him and how I feel about Him. When I wrote it, I was truly expressing my heart to my Heavenly Father." The transparency of the song is quite touching.

After coming through the recent tempest in New Orleans, the trio thought it would be fitting to record Doug Miller's popular church tune, "My Soul Is Anchored." Following their trial, the song seems more than appropriate. With the addition of female voices, this soaring ballad is taken to unbelievable heights. Perhaps it's the deeply personal nature of the lyrics that's the cause of such a powerful performance for two of the group's members were personally affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Having sold more than 2 million units with their first three projects -- their eponymous debut, "Spiritual Love" and "The Kiss" -- the group isn't awestruck by their material successes. Their goal is to continue to inspire and spread God's love, and "T57" is an exemplary musical testimony.
