Israel Houghton Unveils Video for and Performs “Secrets” with Wife Adrienne and Releases Album On The Road to Demaskus
Israel Houghton has released his new album Road To DeMaskus (RGM-New Breed Music/RCA Inspiration). The 11-track project features a mix of duets and features including “Promise Keeper” with Travis Greene as well as the duets, “Secrets” and “I’m With You / Be Still,” with Houghton’s wife, artist and EMMY winning co-host of The Real, Adrienne Houghton. Guest appearances also include The Walls Group and Chevelle Franklin. Standout tracks include the triumphant “Reckless Love,” and “Free Indeed (You Said I Am)”.
The album takes its cues from Apostle Paul from the bible and his transformative road to Damascus. Within the title of DeMaskus, Israel’s personal experiences are references for the album’s song. His publicized journey of marriage, divorce, new relationship and re-marriage was the basis for spiritual confrontation with self. This bore the fruit of what is now the album Road to DeMaskus.
Houghton also released the video for the song “Secrets” his duet with wife Adrienne “Secrets”. The video was directed by actress Meagan Good and she and Adrienne discussed the making of it on her daytime talk show “The Real”. The video premiered on BET Gospel and BET.com. The Houghtons performed the song for the first time on television also on the, The Real. They will also perform together on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family on October 8th. Like the album, “Secrets” deals with facades people project via wearing the proverbial mask. In the video Israel and Adrienne attend a masquerade with all attendees wearing masks until the two of them takes theirs off and their storyline together begins.
