Atlanta R&B singers release "Heaven-ly" new single: Eleven years ago, Atlanta-based singer-songwriters Anthony David and Algebra Blessett were riding high on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart with the romantic 4Evermore. Now, the artists are poised to do it again, thanks to the release of their latest collaboration. Heaven is the newest single from Anthony David and Algebra Blessett, and was just released May 20th to all major music platforms. Heaven was originally recorded in the late 1980s by brother and sister duo BeBe & CeCe Winans; this new version, produced by Eddie Stokes, gives the song an acoustic makeover and pairs David and Blessett for the first time in a decade. Both Anthony David and Algebra Blessett are Georgia natives who broke into the music business here in Atlanta; David was nominated for a 2008 Grammy Award for his song "Words" featuring India.Arie, and Blessett scored a Top 20 Adult R&B Airplay hit in 2013 with her track "Nobody But You." We recently caught up with the Atlanta artists to learn more about "Heaven".
