“Still Gon’ Trust”

Joshua Rogers sums up the sentiments of most in the first few lines of his new single, “Still Gon’ Trust:” “It’s been quite a year / A test of my faith / I’ve seen some things that took my breath away.”
On the chorus, however, Rogers responds with supreme confidence in the Creator: “I’m still gon’ trust in you.”
The song’s simple but effective musical accompaniment, including slight blues turns on piano and strings soaring like seagulls over the sea, affirms Rogers’ message of resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges. It’s been rough but the Lord is there to lean and depend on, sings the BET Sunday Best Season Five champ.
Written by Lucious B. Hoskins and Percy Bady, “Still Gon’ Trust” is one of the finest gospel singles I’ve heard thus far this year. It has the goods.
