Together again and it feels so good. An R&B force re-teams with a rising gospel singer to give fans the gift of music this Christmas

Four-time Grammy winner India Arie is a huge fan of Stellar and Dove Award-nominated gospel singer Jonathan McReynolds and she’s invited him to come along for her Christmas with Friends tour.

The seven-city tour celebrating the joy of the season kicks off in Boston Dec. 13 and ends Nashville Dec. 21.

McReynolds, 26, first collaborated with Arie, 40, at BET’s 2014 “Celebration of Gospel” to rave reviews.

They clicked so well, the acoustic guitar-playing “Gotta Have You” singer, who just released a lyric video for his new single, “Whole,” featuring Arie, will be present for five of the seven announced dates.

McReynolds, an Associate Professor at Columbia College in Chicago, told BET last year he considers Arie one of his “primary influences.”

So when he discovered the respected vocalist and musician was a fan of his, he said, “I just thought it was incredible that she had heard of me.”
