MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - The Grammy award-winning group Sounds of Blackness is back and stronger than ever with "The 3rd Gift: Story, Song & Spirit," set for release Aug. 25, 2009.

This life-changing CD has deeply profound music for the entire world with messages of peace, love and hope for all -- even more poignant during these troubled times. "The 3rd Gift" features the amazing inspirational musical spectrum Sounds of Blackness has become known for: Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Spirituals, WorldBeat and more.

"The 3rd Gift" features incredible arrangements of classics, including Marvin Gaye's "God Is Love," Billie Holiday's "God Bless The Child" and an updated version of their very own classic "Optimistic."

There's no doubt that "The 3rd Gift" is destined to become a classic!
