GRAMMY WINNER WILL DOWNING FULFILLS A VOW TO GOD WITH NEW ALBUM “THE PROMISE” –  A CELEBRATION OF FAITH THAT BREAKS NEW GROUND FOR  THE PRINCE OF SOUL SLATED FOR NOVEMBER 9, 2018

Sometimes life gets in the way. For Will Downing, The Prince of Sophisticated Soul, more than two decades of critical and commercial success as a singer was suddenly at risk-along with his life. There’s a long, rich tradition in the Black church of testifying, sharing “testimony” about a point of great adversity in life, when the power of God and prayer turn everything around against all odds-that “low point” marking a test, God’s test of faith. In late 2007, in the very prime of his life, Will Downing faced an almost unimaginable test. A sudden onset of the auto-immune disease polymyositis threatened everything he held dear: his health, his ability to provide for his family, his musical gifts, and life itself. Weak, frail and nearly paralyzed, he did not curse God, but instead said a prayer: “Lord you see me through this and I promise I will give you all the honor, all the praise…wherever I go.” He didn’t turn away from God and God didn’t turn away from him. Twelve years later, Will Downing is a walking, singing testimony of the power of faith and prayer. And he delivers on his promise with his new CD, THE PROMISE, an inspirational album-actually his first gospel album — to be released November 9, 2018 by Shanachie Entertainment.

Although this may be thought of as a Gospel album, you will still be able to groove to the music. Check out the first release Look At Yourself (In The Mirror). It is a thumping horn-driven reminder that while God is omni-present, He allows each of us to find him in our own way. The message is clear: you are the total sum of the choices you make in this life.

We definitely love that!

We will keep you updated on the particulars.
