God is With Us at All Times
Gospel singing was wasn’t exactatly a “conventional” genre when Anthony Evans first ventured into it. Even so, he never looked back. Though life was tough, this singer, songwriter & worship leader, stayed true to his craft, which resulted in his calendar being packed with dates at churches, concerts, and major conferences. Quickly gainig attention for his passionate and versatile voice, which was perfect for recording in several Christian music formats.
One should “let go”
Letting Go, one of his sophomore releases, is considered to be an extremely prestigious project. Evans, who is widely known for his dynamic vocal presence, his joyful expression of passionate faith and for his insatiable thirst to understand matters that are important in his relationship with God, has lent his voice to an album full of songs that explore God’s grace and invokes deeper faith and understanding. After so much time, he has quit being self-sufficient due to his belief that God doesn’t abandon us in both good and bad times.
His journey begins
Evans stepped into the limelight after appearing on Season 2 of the hit NBC singing competition show The Voice, where he was chosen by Christina Aguilera to join her team. He carved a niche for himself due to a much talked about “battle round” performance that many still view as one of the greatest vocal moments of the series. In fact, the supervising director of casting for NBC had even asked him, why Evans was 30 years old and hadn’t been heard of. That is when he realized that his talent shouldn’t be confined within a church.
…and a star is born
The Voice catapulted him to instant stardom, and he was asked by L.A. producer Adam Anders to go to Lose Angeles and record guide vocals for CeeLo Green. The 3-month stint stretched for over 2 years, within which, he worked with Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. He was asked to return to The Voice as a talent producer too. He had to divide his time between his hometown of Dallas and the far-outside-the-Bible-belt surroundings of L.A. All of this served as platform for him to interact with people outside churches.
Anthony’s unwavering belief in himself and God has brought him where he is today, but he is still discovering new horizons. Want to catch an Anthony Evans show live? Here’s how you can book tickets in advance before they are sold out!
