Recorded live in Nashville over two days, Crossover is the ultimate worship experience with 15-tracks celebrating the glory of God from the beginning to the end of the disc.  With production work from Greene along with noted producers Bernie Herms, Jason Ingram, Paul Mabury and Jevon Hill,  Crossover strikes a resounding chord with Gospel music fans across the globe.  Greene gets vocal assistance from the likes of Dante Bowe on Fell in Love as well as BET Sunday Best Season _ Winner Geoffrey Golden and Isaiah Templeton on See the Light.  The lead single,  “You Waited,” continues to make an impact across multiple charts hitting #4 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs Chart and #6 on Billboard’s Gospel National Airplay Chart.  Additionally, his new album debuts at #15 on Soundscan’s Top Current Album chart, and his previous hit album The Hill also makes a return on the Top Gospel Albums Chart at #3 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums Chart this week.

GOSPELflava: Congrats on your number 1 debut, Travis.  Share with us your feelings about the success of the album and how you came up with You Waited as the lead single.
