Anthony Brown & Group Therapy – I Will Be, Feat. VaShawn Mitchell

Anthony Brown:

Gospel music legends and fans alike are abuzz about Anthony Brown, a 20-something, urban, musically-endowed and gifted songwriter and vocalist. With an artistic pedigree that is steadily refining his stature and distinction, Brown is quickly becoming recognized as an up-and-coming force in the gospel music industry and church music ministry. Four years since Maurette Brown-Clark recorded the Billboard #1 hit he penned, “It Ain’t Over,” the man behind this dynamic offering is rising to the surface and singing of expectation and harvest.
On Brown-Clark’s Stellar Award winning album “The Dream,” Brown also penned the project’s anthem of power, “Sovereign God.” His prowess as a vocal leader is rare given his age. A music prodigy who began playing the piano at 3, he served as the vocal director and vocal producer for the live recording of “The Dream” as well as on “Times of Refreshing,” the 2009 release of GRAMMY-™ and Stellar-nominated praise and worship leader Stephen Hurd. The Baltimore, MD-native also co-wrote “Water” and “Great Name” on Hurd’s latest project; produced and co-wrote “Joy”, “Bring It”, and “Face Down” for Tonex’s March 2009 album “Unspoken” and served as music director for Tonex’s “Out the Box” Tour. Brown (and his background singers, group therAPy, were also featured for B.E.T.’s 2006 and 2007 Celebration of Gospel.
He has worked with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Anthony Hamilton, Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin and even, the legendary Caravans. In the Spring of 2008, Anthony Brown has become a part of the Music and Arts Department of the First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG) where John K. Jenkins, Sr. is the senior pastor. Within months of his incomparable work at the 10,000-member ministry, Brown was brought on full time as the Creative Director of Vocal Development. Now a member of FBCG, he also has the distinction of writing, producing and performing lead vocals on the title track of the church’s first live recording “That Was Then, This Is Now.” “The Harvest Song,” the first single from his planned 2010 Summer release, will be released on Tuesday, December 22, 2009.
The song has galvanized the hopes of the 10,000 member congregation and is ready for release. Moreover, immediately after hearing the single, GRAMMY, Stellar and Dove-Award winning composer, artist and gospel music icon Richard Smallwood (and Brown’s mentor) called him and said, “This is your moment.” Anthony Brown believes that this is not just “his” moment, but a moment for all who will receive the ministry of “The Harvest Song.” We invite you to experience the song that will take your faith and expectations by the hand and walk with them until you walk into that for which you are believing God.
