This week’s featured artist is John T.
Listen to his single “Do It Again”:
John T. believes that his love for God isn’t religion, but relationship. In this relationship, is the ministry of stirring the souls of many through music! John was born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Rockledge, Florida. With his father being his Pastor, it is obvious that he was brought up to be in church. “It all began when I was two years old, beating on pots and pans with spoons.” John explained. From then, up to this point in time, John has weathered many storms. Not having much of a social life as a child, the thing that kept John unique was his music. At age 8 his father gave him his very first keyboard. Without any formal lessons, John plays guitar, organ, keyboard, and drums. As he got older, his voice was discovered and then matured. Also, he has been preaching since age fifteen, and is a faithfully active minister of music at his church in Dumfries, Virginia.
John T. has a project titled, “The Awakening”, that hit all major online stores in September of 2012. He has traveled the country singing and ministering to God’s people. “Every believer knows how good it felt to fall in love with God for the first time, John explains, so my mission is to help keep that fire of relationship with God burning. He independently writes the lyrics to every song that he creates, and he understands that his music is a ministry. John knows that he has a bright future, and he is not allowing anything to block his success. “God called and chose me for this”, he said. So with humility and belief in God, John T. is moving forward one blessing at a time!
