“Never Stop Trusting God”
Lemmie Battles
DAF Entertainment Group (release date: June 17, 2022)

By Robert M. Marovich

Every song Lemmie Battles sings sounds like her personal testimony. Probably because every song is.

Same with “Never Stop Trusting God.” Written by Percy Gray and produced by Jeral Gray Sr., the single features that Chicago-style pew-burning tempo and Battles’ trademark shouting and squalling. “I’ve had some good days and I’ve had some bad,” she declares, “but I never stop trusting God.”

The indefatigable Battles’ second single on the DAF imprint makes it plain that no matter how many praise teams or urban AC gospel singers there are, traditional gospel is not going out of style. There will always be a place at the table for no-nonsense, plain truth, lift-your-hem-and-dance-in-the-aisle evangelistic singing like Sis. Lemmie offers here.
