Cedric Ballard Presents A Scripture Collage With New Single

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Houston baseCedric Ballardd singer, songwriter and worship leader Cedric Ballard makes a joyful noise with They That Wait, the second single from Transparency, his debut solo CD.  In his own words, he describes the song as a marriage between scripture and music. “They That Wait is a scripture collage.  As we are recipients of the truth that the words we speak have power, I personally feel the best way to counteract the attacks of the enemy is to align ourselves with the power of God’s Word and then to emphatically declare it.  You have got to speak it over and over again until the breakthrough comes, and believe me, change will happen, either God will fit you for the circumstance or He will send deliverance, either way, our orders remain, wait on the Lord, be renewed in strength and power, don’t be weary in well doing, those are keys and faith is the victory.”

Transparency is available on all digital platforms and you can catch Ballard as he takes the Transparency movement message to the masses at concerts and worship encounters in cities across the country.
