“King Jesus”

Released January, 2024

This song is an anthem that God gave me in the depths of the covid shutdowns, in June of 2020. It is a song worth singing in the middle of anything you’re going through!

The song is also a prayer, for it is impossible to truly declare the glory and awesomeness of God without responding to it with a prayer for Him to transform us.
