If you enjoy fresh new music that resembles the changing gospel scene without compromising the timeless message of the gospel, quickly acquaint yourself with Ethan Kent. Kent is working on his newest project and has released the first single entitled “My Hope is in Glory”. You guessed it; it’s a song about Heaven however it’s not your run of the mill “funeral dirge”. You can (dare I say it)…dance to it! Joy will make you move- this song will give you JOY!!!
This song effortlessly reminds you of the joy of the hope of eternal life. The vocals just glide across the instrumental accompaniment and minister to your soul. Along with Kent’s award winning vocals, he has invited a collection of DFW heavyweights to chime in on the track. The likes of Drea (Randle) Kelly, Fred Williams, Niya Cotton, Chanese Jones, LaNesha Renee’ , J. E. McKissic and Donrico Colden all join Kent on this ‘glorious’ track.
Singing about Heaven is a staple among gospel artists. What Kent was able to capture in this recording is the sheer joy that every believer should possess when considering that ‘this world is not our home’! Regardless of the listener’s current state, this is encouragement that God has something better not only here on earth but in “Glory”.
Kent acknowledges that there are many who have already entered in and wanted to remember them well, saying:
“I was inspired by loved ones who passed away. We are a work in progress and Heaven is our final destination.”
When the full album is released later this year, “My Hope is in Glory” will close out the album! Listeners won’t be in a rush to get to it because there is never a shortage of great music when Kent is involved! “My Hope is in Glory” was written as a thematic/titular close to the album and speaks to the truth that we are all a “Work in Progress”(the album title). Kent chose to feature premier singers from the area and the extensive collaboration brings Mary Mary to mind.!
2013 is already shaping up to be a tremendous year of opportunity for Kent. In January,he performed in Nashville during the Stellar Awards at their Radio Awards. "Work in Progress" will be released and distributed through Central South distribution. A major milestone for the young artist. Kent's music has carried big stage persona and class.
Kent has found a way to meld the timeless message to timeless artistry and the combination has yielded a breakout hit with “My Hope is in Glory. You can purchase the song on itunes.
