Clifton Ross III, best known from his time as the BET Sunday Best All Star runner up, has released an inspiring second single, the title track from his debut EP, I Believe God. With a handful of radio stations already playing the second single Ross is very excited about the growing success of the song.
“I Believe God,” is an upbeat declaration that challenges listeners to embrace the power of their voice to charge their spirit and shift their perspective. Ross shares that he wrote this song during a time when he was the least inspired. “We all have those moments but we have to choose what gets our attention. Is it the circumstance or the truths that keep us anchored? And these were the words I heard — I believe God.” says Ross.
Much success has followed Ross with this EP. I Believe God, debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Gospel Album Sales Chart. The EP also debuted No. 32 on the Billboard Top Christian and Gospel Albums Chart. The EP reached radio listeners both nationally and internationally with a feature on one of London’s most popular gospel stations, Premier Gospel.
