Singer Bryan Andrew Wilson’s new radio hit “Turning Away” is now live on iTunes; Amazon.com and other digital download sites this week. The soul-stirring song is winning Wilson new fans and respect from across the gospel music landscape.
“This is a strong song, maybe his strongest song to date,” says WNOO Program Director Sam Terry in Chattanooga, TN. “ We’ve gotten calls requesting it but the main thing is the message. It’s a really timely message that people need to hear.” Christian music blogger Mark Weber calls the song “Stunning.” A singer himself, Weber adds that Wilson “has the kind of song that’s right up there with John Legend’s `All of Me.’ Sure, it can be a Gospel hit, but I bet this song could do well on the R&B and pop charts as well.”
Some of the adjectives Wilson fans have used to describe the song on Wilson’s You Tube channel are awesome, amazing and wow. “This song means everything to me,” Jamoni Hughes wrote on You Tube. “Wow. It really spoke to me.”
Pat McKay, Program Director of Kirk Franklin’s Praise Channel 64 on Sirius Satellite Radio, agrees. “I love the sound of it,” she says. “The sentiment conveyed with simple, compelling piano and voice… so relevant to a point in life’s journey.”
The passionate track anchors Wilson’s forthcoming fifth solo CD “The One Percent” (EchoPark JDI Records Entertainment) that hits retail shelves and digital stores on June 17th. Wilson is lining up dates in support of the album and is already confirmed to perform at Reid Temple A.M.E. in Glendale, MD on June 8th, Praize Power 1350 WLOU’s Summer Fest in Louisville, KY on June 21st and The Jackson Music Awards in Jackson, MS on July 27th.
