Jonathan Nelson Talks Fearless To GOSPELflava

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Jonathan Nelson-FEARLESS album coverFearless is the fifth album from multiple Stellar Award winning singer/songwriter Jonathan Nelson.  GOSPELflava caught up with the worship leader and shared a few moments to talk about the new album, new label and other things.

GOSPELflava: Jonathan, bring us up to speed since our last conversation.

Jonathan Nelson: I signed with a brand new record company Eone Music, recorded and released a new CD entitled Fearless and it debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart.    I told Eone when we started talking that I wanted to expand and I wanted to  infiltrate the Gospel market with a stronger brand and a stronger sound, having a stand out kind of approach, and  Eone helped me to do just that. Everything about this CD is me living out the word fearless, taking the risks, doing what I have never done before and being out the box so to speak.  All of the background singers that are singing on the CD, we have never really worked together officially as a team, some of the background singers I had never met in person, the band had never really worked together,  we maybe did one record together but not really as a team effort with the band or singers.  I  had never worked with Da Truth, Tye Tribbett, Kim, Dorinda or Sonnie Badu as it relates to partnering or collaborating on music, so that was completely different.  I just took a leap of faith.   I believed what God would do and His hand of approval is on it,  so everything about this CD, there is no script for it, it is really me living out what fearless is in me.
