(release date: January 15, 2021)
On “Get Ready,” singer-songwriter Darwin Hobbs quotes from 1 Corinthians 2:9 (“eye has not seen, nor ear heard”) to drum up excitement about the miracles just beyond his/your/our horizon.
The new single features Hobbs’ husky voice, strong as it’s ever been, and an equally robust team of background vocalist and musicians, including ‘Mo Horns. Though stitched together from various studios in various locations, thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown, the production comes together effortlessly.
Co-written with Apostle John W. Stevenson, who officiated at Hobbs’ 1993 nuptials, “Get Ready” is Hobbs’ first gospel radio single since 2017’s “Call the Name of Jesus.” He launches it on his own imprint, HeartArt Worship, in partnership with FairTrade Services and Tyscot Records.
Besides his music ministry, Darwin Hobbs is a worship leader at Brooklyn’s Christian Cultural Center under the leadership of Dr. A.R. Bernard.
