“It Shall Pass” – Dr. James Mable Jr.

“It Shall Pass”
Dr. James Mable Jr.
From the Uncle G Records album The Journey 2.0
(release date: September 18, 2020)

By Robert M. Marovich

“I’m about to take you all the back to Navasota, Texas,” Dr. James Mable Jr. declares, referencing his hometown, as he leads the background vocalists with the fervor of a quartet lead vocalist on “It Shall Pass.”

It’s a song of encouragement—“whatever you are going through, it shall pass”—and a reminder that because God is in control, trouble don’t last always. The joy that comes from knowing this fact almost leaps out of Mable’s voice because, as he notes, “I’m a living witness.” Sean Keys produced it. Gritty.

Uncle G Records is a label owned by promoter/manager Greg “Uncle G” Lyons.
