New Single ‘GOD IS’ Sent To Radio

 

Patrick Dopson has established his distinguished soulful voice as one that God has designated a special anointing for praise and worship and to cross, tear down and unify racial, cultural and denominational barriers.  Patrick is a 2014 Stellar Award winner who, by his pen, delivers poignant lyrics and life-changing music.  His 2012 debut project OPEN THE HEAVENS yielded signature hits “Keep Me” and “Open The Heavens”.  Patrick is now prepping for his sophomore release GOD IS (fill in the blank) on his indie label  Oilonit Music and Central South Distribution by releasing a new radio single and title track “GOD Is”.

With the plethora of songs that come about every day, each are purposeful in their own right.  “GOD Is” is simply a powerful song, for this appointed time, that ignites a deluge of worship.  That is the uniquely special ‘thing’ that sets this song apart from any other.

“I started writing this song by really asking God two things about this record,” Patrick shares.  “One, ‘what is it that you want to say to your people?’ and two, ‘what do you want your people saying back to you – how do You want to be worshipped?’. There was simply no other intent.”  Patrick concludes, “This particular song really was pulling on me. I knew it was supposed to be the single before I wrote it.”

“With my song “Keep Me” people became aware of how God carried me and my wife Christina through the challenges of conceiving a child,” Patrick shares.  “We were blessed to adopt our son Garion and he has changed our lives forever. In this season, God has placed a couple of new and exciting items on our plate that is far more than we can accomplish on our own. We know it’s going to be all Him. So this new single ‘GOD Is’ is definitely reiterating our dependence being fully on Him; Giving us the faith to stand on our feet and say GOD IS!”

Patrick, Kevin Camp (contributed to OPEN THE HEAVENS) and Parris Bowens (former  Tye Tribbett Music Director) will be at the producing helm on GOD IS (fill in the blank) which will release this summer. “Both Kevin and Parris are musical masterminds that truly create an atmosphere for praise and worship,” says Patrick. “I look forward to working with these guys for some years to come. They are really the next, now producers.”

 “GOD Is” will be available on iTunes March 18 and is available for pre-order now.  Patrick has released the official lyric video to “GOD Is” on Youtube.  Supporters can log on to www.Oilonit.com for current tour dates as a national tour will soon be announced.

FOLLOW UP TO SMASH DEBUT SINGLE ‘KEEP ME’

July 16, 2013 (Montgomery, AL) – Rising Gospel artist, Patrick Dopson to release title track “Open The Heavens,” to gospel radio this week.   Following up on his chart topping single, “Keep Me,” Dopson hopes for similar success with title track.


“Open The Heavens” 
is the title track of Dopson’s independent debut CD that was released in May 2012.  Having penned the song several years ago, Dopson describes the song as “a song of deliverance that would encourage people to trust God in the dry and rough spots of life.”  A true praise and worship jam, “Open The Heavens,” is definitely Sunday-Morning ready and is a soon-to-be classic that will be sung in churches across the country.

“Keep Me,” one of the year’s gospel anthems peaked at number 5 on the Gospel Radio chart and remained on the chart for over 40 weeks. A personal anthem for Dopson, both songs provided inspiration for his own life both professionally and personally.   “Almost 10 years passed since this project was birthed in my heart but the song ministered to me as I waited on God’s timing for this release and even as I walked through the adoption process of our son.”

“We know that’s when God is working in great detail to prep us; that doesn’t mean we always like it,” said Dopson. “I have to look back and really embrace the process and say ‘Thank You’ because this thing is God’s and I know it is to ultimately bring Him glory.”

Dopson recently serviced a concept video for “Keep Me” reflective of his adoption struggles and journey. Released on his Oilonit Music label, “Keep Me,” became a Billboard Gospel hit and received a Stellar nomination for Song of The Year.  “Open the Heavens” was selected by Maranatha as one of the Top 25 Gospel Songs of 2012.

Dopson’s music keeps the legacy of urban contemporary Praise & Worship music alive.  He grew up listening to gospel artists such as The Winans, Commissioned, John P. Kee, Marvin Sapp, Gary Oliver, Fred Hammond, Shirley Caesar and mass choirs, which have all influenced his life and is evident in his music.  He founded his own publishing and record label, Oilonit Music, in 2003. His debut album, Open the Heavens, produced by Noel Hall and himself, was released in May of 2012. His debut release garnered four Stellar Award nominations and a featured slot on RCA Inspiration WOW GOSPEL 2013 CD & DVD releases.
