Earlier today, I gave my thoughts on Kandi Burruss’ (of RHOA and Xscape fame) newly released gospel single, “Stay Prayed Up”. Isn’t it funny how we often trust ourselves over trusting God? Not to say that we don’t have good judgment, but God’s judgment is way better than ours. Perhaps prolific songwriter John Patrick Adams could have instructed her to stay in the direction she was going with her own way. His new single, “God’s Way” is a very well written song that inspires us to look to God when things aren’t going the way we think they should. It also cautions us that following God’s way may help us avoid pitfalls on our journey in life.
Some of his past hits include “Why Did He Do It?”, “He Never Stopped” and “In My Favor”. The great thing about the message in his music is that it’s extremely relatable. There’s that a-ha moment when you realize you’re not the only one going through trials or tribulations. There’s clear-cut inspiration here, not to mention beautiful singing as well. In a time where artists are rewarded for how they make people’s bodies move (even in gospel music) vs lyrical content, it’s great to see that lyrics still matter. Plus, the production on the song is soft and peaceful, which only compliments the strong vocals and powerful lyrics. There’s also something to be said for original melodies (that are actually enjoyable) too. With so many artists sampling highlights of the past, it’s refreshing to hear music that isn’t borrowed from someone else’s shining moment.
If you thought that John Patrick Adams is only well versed in music, then think again. He’s also preparing for his first book release, entitled Naked. It’s set for release this May, so be sure to look out for it. Plus see if you can really handle the truth on his website, www.TheTruthBowl.com.
