I've been making music that I love and been just giving my heart to the Lord with 'My Gift,' which you guys have been so wonderful to support. Lots of love and support and I have felt it every step of the way. So, thank you so much for that.
"I basically didn't want all of that to end. When I was making this music, I felt like my soul was in such a great place. I wanted to keep making music like the music off of 'My Gift'. So, I am here to give you guys a little gift right now and announce that I did that."
"I went ahead and made more music. I made an album called 'My Savior,' which is hopefully just a little companion to 'My Gift.' This album is full of gospel hymns that I grew up singing. I feel like you guys have kind of been asking me for a while to make an album like that because I've been lucky enough to do songs like that here and there along the way in my career. So, that's what I did. It will be coming to you just in time for Easter (April 4)."
"Again, it's just been such a blessing to make music like this, music that is near and dear to my heart. I hope you guys enjoy listening to it as much as I loved making it. Thanks again for the 'My Gift' support and I hope you like this gift, and I hope you like it when it comes out. Until then, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, sending lots of love."
