ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Saturday night hundreds of people packed into the Greater Grace Church of God and Christ.

The church hosted a free worship concert for the debut CD release of "Invitation," an album written and produced by local music artists Cornelius Drake and his sister.

Drake says the CD was released about 4 months ago but Saturday night they celebrated it's debut with praise and worship.

"The lord has called us to do praise and worship and so we've been writing songs for years and so about a year or two ago the Lord put on our hearts to record the music and send it to the nations and that's what we've been doing," says Drake.

Drake says the CD has 12 brand new songs that can be purchased on iTunes. The CDs were also sold Saturday night at the concert.
