On his career as a gospel singer, he said
“My faith now plays the key role in the music I make and I’m devoted to seeing the music I’ve been given transform lives. That’s the difference. In the midst of my secular music career I had a spiritual awakening and that changed everything.
The assurance of God’s presence and to walk daily with Him, nothing tops that, not even career. That doesn’t necessarily mean that life is easy, but life is abundantly victorious and joyful. Yes that’s obvious. But I’m grateful to live for much more”.
