Trinity Dawson Takes The Field To Sing Praises

Friday, March 13th, 2015

The Bible says the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and newcomer Trinity Dawson is a recipient of God ordered steps.  The University of Toledo Division 1 running back had his sights set on a football career until his plans were redefined by Divine intervention.  Dawson soon realized, “purpose is not one-dimensional; but, when surrendered to God, Trinity Dawsonevery aspect of who I am is for His glory.”

Dawson now finds himself in the right place as he presents music and melodies both near and dear to his heart on With All I Am – The EP.  Counting Israel Houghton, Fred Hammond, Tye Tribbett, Hillsong United, John Legend and Stevie Wonder as some of his influences, he carefully weaves together the sound of progressive praise music colored by urban influences.  The EP is available digitally online and a full project hits stores in the summer.
