Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Reba Rambo’s 1980 release Confessions will be released for the first time digitally by Entertainment One on May 1st, with pre-orders beginning April 1st.
Having earned four Grammy nominations, a Dove Award and ranking in the top 3 best-selling female artists in industry journals for four consecutive years, Rambo had established herself as one of the leading artists in contemporary Christian music. Despite offers to record secular music, she made the leap from Nashville’s Greentree Records to the West Coast-based Light Records, home to artists on the forefront of the edgier side of gospel music including Andraé Crouch and Resurrection Band. Ralph Carmichael, then-president of the label, said “Reba is the most progressive contemporary female artist in the gospel field today. I want Reba to stay in the field and use all the talents God has given her. She can have a tremendous influence.”
