Fast forward to 2012 and Carl has released his version of R&B diva, Mary J. Blige‘s “Love No Limit,” featuring new and uplifting lyrics penned by Brister himself. Carl Brister states, “I believe now more than ever, people really need to hear about God’s love and also have a good time. So I re-wrote the lyrics and made it a party song that feels good.”
Carl’s most recent release is described as an uplifting feel-good contemporary gospel album that crosses over into various elements of Rhythm & Praise, Neo-Soul, Hip-Hop, and Christian Contemporary music. Carl is currently preparing to embark on on a “Love No Limit” regional promotional tour during the months of April and May 2012.
