AmazedCoverFor Immediate Release, New Yor, NY  - On Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015, the PraizeGroup released Durel Hall & Restored's debut single, Amazed, featuring Stellar Award nominee JJ Hairston, and the incredibly gifted Thomas "TC" Clay.

Amazed is said to have been conceived on a beach in Costa Rica while Restored's lead singer and songwriter, Durel Hall, sat staring at the sunset. "I looked around the world that God made was overwhelmed by how awesome He is - how powerful He is, sometimes we forget that. We forget He spoke this perfectly connected world into existence." Durel stated the original recording was done only using only the voice meme app on his phone. Once he returned to New York, Durel called upon producer Cito Crandle and the two brough the recording to life. In 2013, the PraizeGroup launched the Durel Hall project and within two years, Durel Hall & Restored have taken the New York City gospel scene by storm. In their short lifetime, Durel Hall & Restored have been blessed with the opportunity to minister on the same stage as various Grammy nominees and Stellar Award winners such as Tye Tribbett, JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise, Jason Nelson, Deon Kipping, Anthony Brown & Group therAPy, Kurt Carr and many many more anointed vessels. PraizeGroup CEO Gary Saunders says, "We couldn't be more proud of Durel, watching his growth has been amazing."
