Veteran gospel artist Bryan Wilson will make his first appearance on BET’s “Bobby Jones Gospel” in over two years when he performs his latest radio single, “Expect You Now” on the show this Sunday, Feb. 24 at 9 a.m.EST. The program also features outstanding performances from the Songbird of the South Dottie Peoples (“I Got This”), Pastor Jason Nelson (“Shifting the Atmosphere”) and new artist Mary Glover.
Wilson’s “Expect You Now” is a twist of style for the former Malaco Records artist known for his traditional and gutbucket gospel hits such as “His Eye is on the Sparrow”, “Blessed Assurance” and “If You’re Talking About Jesus.” The sophisticated new praise and worship single was produced by Amos P. Saint Jean who’s collaborated with artists such as Jonathan Nelson & Purpose and Shekinah Glory Ministry. “Bryan Wilson did his thang on Expect You Now - goose bumps factor enabled,” says Kyle Stewart, an announcer with B106.2 FM in Palm Beach, FL. “There is much maturity in this song that is sure to be pleasing to all ages,” says Jacki Holliday of KDAY in Louisiana.
“The song is a simple one,” says Wilson, who made the song up during a worship service almost three years ago. “The pastor was praying over people during an altar call and I got up and started singing what they call ` a song of the Lord.’ When people go to the altar, they are expecting God to change them or change their situation so I started to sing, Lord, we expect you now’ and after the service people asked me if that was on one of my CDs and I said, `Not yet but it will be.’”
