“Through the years, Bishop Jakes has “loosed” multitudes of women from the shackles of abandonment, low self-esteem, addiction, and more to become victorious, secure women,” the conference’s website says. “Woman, Thou Art Loosed! held its first conference in 1996 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. Now, a quarter-century later, WTAL comes home to that original location for its triumphant grand finale.” Over time, the conference has housed millions of attendees and has grown into one of the foremost faith-based events in the country.
MegaFest, an amalgamation of WTAL and three other conferences, has featured Oprah Winfrey, Joel Osteen and other notable figures over the years.
The latest conference was held September 22-24, 2022, in Atlanta and was recently taken over by T.D. Jakes’ daughter and fellow paster Sarah Jakes Roberts.
The album gospel album will include contributions from Timbaland, Sheila E., Tamar Braxton, Isreal Houghton, Fred Jerkins, Maranda Curtis and others. It will also be available in retail stores, a Collector’s Edition Vinyl for pre-order, and on all streaming and digital platforms.
