Tonja Rose Joins Denis Castillo On New Bilingual Release

Franklin, TN (August 12, 2021) Producer John Mathis Jr. of Mansion Entertainment has paired Tonja Rose with Denis Castillo for a new bilingual release of “Ven Ante Su Trono (O Come To The Altar)” that will be available in September.
The Franklin, Tennessee based label is 6 months into a campaign of releasing new music each month from Tonja Rose to digital platforms. This release will be the 7th monthly release in a series of releases that has resulted in Tonja’s music landing multiple times on popular playlists such as Spotiy’s ‘New Music Friday Christian’ and GMA’s ‘New Music Friday’. The releases have also been placed in ‘Featured New Release’ spots on iTunes, Apple Music and other digital platforms.   

Mathis had this to say on the upcoming release, “We’ve seen Tonja have radio success in the past few years on Bluegrass Gospel, Christian Country and Southern Gospel radio charts. We believed Tonja’s music would also appeal to the general audience of Christian Music listeners, and it has. We’ve seen worship and CCM listeners gravitate to Tonja’s music. We’ve also been recording and releasing new music from Denis Castillo to the Spanish language market for more than a year, including one of the first Spanish versions of “There Was Jesus (Jesús Estaba)”. We had the idea to put these two together and introduce Tonja to the Spanish language listener and in turn introduce Denis to an English audience. They make for a great vocal pairing on this recording and this has been so much fun to do. We’re excited to share it!”

The recording of the new release utilized the music production of Tony Griffith with veteran producer and engineer, George Hairr, providing the final mix. “Ven Ante Su Trono (O Come To The Altar)” will be available in September 17th (distribution by Syntax Creative) on all digital platforms. The official lyric video has been released and is available on YouTube: “Ven Ante Su Trono (O Come To The Altar) YouTube
