August 5, 2014 (Springdale, Ark.) - A two-disc collection of songs celebrating the 25-year music ministry career of CCM pioneer Crystal Lewis is being released today. The project, titled 25 and containing 25 of the songtress' top recordings, is available at, iTunes, and all retailers.

The success of the new album has been jumpstarted by the July 15 release of the highly-anticipated remix of "People Get Ready…Jesus Is Coming," the No. 1 song from CCM pioneer Crystal Lewis from 1996. Proving to follow in its predecessor's footsteps, the single debuted at No. 1 on Christian Radio Chart Weekly (CRC), an international "stations adds"-based radio chart. The single currently is being played at Christian CHR and Urban Gospel radio stations and is being promoted by A-Sides Radio Promotion.

"Compiling the songs for this collection was a wonderful trip down memory lane! Each one brings to mind specific emotions and moments in my life," Lewis said. "On one hand, it's hard to imagine that it's been 25 years! On the other hand, in many ways, I feel as though I'm just hitting my stride. God is so good to bring me this far!"

The new project spans Lewis' career, beginning with her stint on Nickelodeon's Roundhouse to her years when she sang with both Greg Laurie and Harvest Crusades and Franklin Graham Crusades, and through the two-and-half decades of her radio success.

In addition to the hip hop-infused version of "People Get Ready," 25 includes Lewis' top hits, including "Not The Same, "God's Been Good To Me" and "Lord I Believe In You."
