James Johnson Jr.
From the Blacksmoke Music Worldwide EP You Made Me (EP release date: March 8, 2024)

By Robert M. Marovich

There’s a lot to like about “Agree,” the new single by James Johnson Jr.

First, it’s the singer-songwriter’s crystal-clear and flexible tenor, which injects the right amount of emotion in his prayer for the Lord’s intercession during such a time as this. By the song’s apex, Johnson pleads with an evangelist’s zeal while not overdoing it for the sake of overdoing it. Then there’s the lyric hook, “We agree on a miracle,” which sounds plucked from a sermon or at least is ready-made for a sermon title. Though “Agree” could use just as dramatic an ending as its beginning and middle, there’s no denying its powerful message and melodic beauty.

James Johnson Jr. is a Stellar-nominated singer and songwriter, and serves as a praise leader in his native Baltimore.
