Popular singer, minister of music and recording artist, Michael Bethany, recently released his debut single "Favor (Grace)" to gospel radio.
"Favor (Grace)" is a mid-tempo praise and worship song that showcases Bethany's incredible vocals. This radio and Sunday-morning ready anthem speaks to God's unending grace and is melodic, moving and passionate. The single will be the first off of Bethany's future album release anticipated for the first quarter of 2014.
"Favor (Grace)" will also be featured on the 2013 fall release Worship & Flow compilation presented by Myron Williams and Flow Records.
In Dallas, the land of Gospel heavy-hitters such as Fred Hammond & Kirk Franklin, Bethany has been able to make a name for himself as a featured vocalist, songwriter and producer. Relocating to Dallas in 2005, Bethany joined the legendary Fred Hammond to head up fHammond Family Entertainment Inc. Since that time he has gone on to write several songs on Hammond's GOD LOVE AND ROMANCE and LOVE UNSTOPPABLE Cds including the Number 1 and BMI Christian Award wining hit "They That Wait." Bethany can also be heard on Marvin Sapp's"Here I Am," and Kirk Franklin's "Hello Fear." Most recently Bethany also contributed as co-writer for super group United Tenors first radio single"Here In Our Praise."
Bethany is a featured artist at Franklin's House of Blues Gospel Brunch and was honored by Dallas-based radio station KHVN with the 2013 Homegrown Honors Male Vocalist of the Year award. He will also take part in Bishop TD Jakes' Megafest later this month as part of the Man Power Praise & Worship team.
Bethany continues to serve as Music and Worship Director at Highpoint Church, a thriving ministry in Arlington TX (Pastors Gary and April Simons).
With a solid foundation and bright future Michael Bethany is poised to impact the gospel music world by creating and sharing quality music and empowering the present generation through Word inspired messages and songs.
