One of Gospel’s best kept secrets, Devon Baker, is set to take the genre by storm via his debut single "Worthy Are You Lord", which is now available at iTunes. This is the jubilant lead offering from his introductory EP, which is due in May 2014. Baker is a burgeoning Atlanta gospel artist whose remarkable talent sees him poised to be one of the genre’s next top stars.
Poetic praise in motion, the song’s stirring lyrics are accented by an energetic arrangement and Baker’s unmistakable, commanding tenor. An instrument he has groomed since the age of 3, the Dallas-born singer has seen his gifts shared as a background singer for the likes of Bishop T.D. Jakes and Stellar Award winning gospel giants Bishop Paul Morton, Israel Houghton, and Darwin Hobbs, Stellar Award-winning worship artist, who recently spoke glowingly of the young singer:
“I'm so proud to offer my humble opinion about the music of Devon Baker...Wow! Its Incredible!!! Do Yourself a Favor and Get It!!!”
Hobbs’ sentiment is one shared by many of Baker’s contemporaries, including singer/songwriter Darius Paulk who penned the 2011 gospel anthem "Nobody Greater" (Vashawn Mitchell).
"Devon Baker echoes the hearts cry of every worshipper in the earth, 'Worthy are You Lord' is a message that rings true in every nation and creed that names the name of Christ, a beautifully written song that would be a great addition to your music library."
