Does Your Soul Look Back and Wonder?
When you’ve escaped bankruptcy, divorce, or other devastating losses, sometimes you can’t do more than look back to where God brought you from – and wonder – how in the world did I get out of that?
Well, while you stand in awe of our glorious God, who can do the IMPOSSIBLE (Luke 1:37), rising Gospel star Bryan Popin’s got your theme song on lock with his top Billboard-charting, sophomore album release, I Got Out.
We caught up with Bryan at Praise 102.5’s Praise In The Park event in Atlanta, GA last month, before the Nashville-based singer/songwriter entered at No. 1 on both the Billboard Current Gospel Albums and Top Christian/Gospel Albums sales charts.
I’ve worked hard and pushed more than I ever have before to deliver a project that represents my faith,” says Popin. “I started my own label to walk in my purpose and make a way for my music and the messages of encouragement and hope I want to share. I co-produced the album, put together a label team, drove hours to shows and was even my own tour manager, all because of this calling. I don’t take this success lightly. I celebrate it with my family, label team, Gospel radio, the fans, and everyone that has believed in me and supported this ministry. I thank God for such incredible favor and blessings.”
I Got Out is packed with personal, testimony-driven songs and includes the title cut and lead radio single, currently No. 8 on Billboard’s Gospel radio chart. The project is produced by Popin and super-producer AyRon Lewis (Kirk Franklin, James Fortune, Bishop Paul Morton Jr.). “Step In The Name” is loaded with infectious grooves and assertive lyrics to “just let go” and “step into your miracle.” Top-notch collaborations include BET Sunday Best winner Tasha Page-Lockhart joining Popin on “Beautiful Savior,” an audacious cut with a sound that goes beyond the genre, and Gospel music and television superstar Tamela Mann contributing a soulful version of “Alright.”
