LOS ANGELES (Sept. 22, 2023)
Anthony Evans, No.1 Billboard charting Gospel artist, producer, performer, author, and vocal contractor/arranger for some of music’s most popular icons, announces the release of his brand new single, “Even If.” Available today, the song is the lead track from Evans’ highly anticipated full length studio album “REVIVE” that will drop globally in early 2024.
“Even If” follows on the heels of Evans’ 2020 album “Altared” – a project that marked his second consecutive #1 on the Billboard Gospel Album chart. After a brief intermission from making new music, Evans’ heartfelt 2024 album, true to its title “REVIVE,” powerfully reflects his painstaking return to a strong, enduring faith after a long season of personal loss, heartache, and doubt.
The project’s lead track, “Even If,” is a slow building tune that explodes in exultation, with a declaration to praise, even if everything doesn’t go as he planned.
Says Evans, “It’s a song about what it means to have hope when your circumstance seems hopeless. It was written for those of us who have ever been in a scenario where your feelings have been telling you that God has forgotten about you. It was also written for those of us who need a reminder that your emotions don’t have intellect and don’t always tell you truth. Even if what we are facing seems insurmountable, despite what you’re feeling, God is still good.”
While setting his personal music aside for a season to focus on his mental, spiritual, and personal health, Evans has spent the past couple of years producing artist vocals for live events. He has worked on projects for Grammy winning, multi-platinum artist DJ Khaled – the latest in a long line of legendary figures who have sought out his array of behind-the-scenes talents.
Look for Evans this fall as the official spokesperson for the international relief, development, and advocacy organization, Food for the Hungry on “The Reunion Tour” alongside Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbett, The Clark Sisters, David and Tamela Mann, and Israel Houghton. The nationwide arena tour kicks off on Sept. 28 in Bridgeport, Conn. vising major cities around the country before concluding on Nov. 24 in Fort Worth, Texas.
In the coming year, Evans will be promoting “REVIVE” in part on the 2024 version of “Fervent,” the touring event that he and his sister, NY Times bestselling author and actress Priscilla Shirer, host in multiple cities. He and his company, Sherman James Productions, have produced 40 sold-out events over the past few years. Also, in 2024, Evans will be bringing back “Kingdom Legacy Live,” an event inspired by the words of his mother, “All of you…together,” which features his father, Dr. Tony Evans, and siblings, Chrystal Evans Hurst, Priscilla Evans, and Jonathan Evans. The first “Kingdom Legacy Live” program in 2023 had over 6,000 attendees.
