Followers of politics have come to know Herman Cain, the Republican presidential candidate. Now they can get to know Herman Cain, the recording artist.
His album, "Sunday Morning," was recently released on the Internet, courtesy of Draft Cain, an independent group not affiliated with the campaign. According to Cain's campaign, the CD was originally released in 1996 by GLC Music, Selah Sound Production and Melodic Praise Records.
The 13-track gospel record was posted by Maurice Atkinson, the head of Draft Cain. It includes religious tracks like "Lord's Prayer," "I Must Tell Jesus," "Hallelujah Square" and "Precious Lord."
The former Godfather's Pizza CEO and radio host is no stranger to the stage and is sometimes heard singing on the campaign trail.
But his Communications Director Ellen Carmichael said the campaign had nothing to do with the album's release.
"Our campaign never had an intention of promoting the music, as it is unaffiliated with our efforts to elect him president," Carmichael said.
