Singer/songwriter, Calvin Simon, is scheduled to release his second single, "Passing Time," in early 2019. The song is currently being sent to Gospel radio stations around the country, with adds beginning the first week of January. According to Daphanie Cassel of DW Promotions, 75% of a multiple radio test panel gave the single early positive feedback. The song was co-written by Simon and Marty McCarrick and will be available early next year on all music digital outlets.
"I'm so excited about the positive feedback that I've been getting from radio for Calvin Simon's new single, 'Passing Time.' This song is groovy, fun and has a great message. I expect it to be a big song for 2019, said Cassel." 

"Passing Time" bookends the new record, with the opening version being a full production number and the closing rendition an acoustic version. With either of the performances, the powerful message of the song remains as a reminder of everyone's purpose through their faith. Jesus, is my sunshine He brightens up my very day/The cold and lonely night go away/From day one we got a book full of empty pages/To use our minds as the pencil of life to fill in the different stages/We're just passing time, passing time/We're just passing time, passing time

"I believe we are allotted a certain amount of time on this earth, some longer than others," explained Simon. "I wrote 'Passing Time' about the decisions we make throughout our lives, and how to best utilize the time we are given. Are we listening to God as we make these decisions that can truly have impact on other lives? Our days shouldn't be empty and cluttered, but rather be filled with God's will during this journey. I hope this song will inspire people in their faith and lead to wonderful opportunities for the future."

Simon has been busy promoting I Believe with several media outlets that include Journal of Gospel Music, Life with Purpose Radio, CTN-TV, The Digital Journal, Your Daily Brew, to name a few. For continued updates about Simon,,

About Calvin Simon
Calvin Simon's previous project, It's Not Too Late, was his second Christian album that received strong support from media with coverage from Voice of America, Sirius XM Radio, CBN/700 Club, VFW Magazine, 100 Huntley Street, Christian Television Network, among many others. Simon released his first Christian album, Share The News, in 2004 that reached No. 21 on Billboard's Gospel Albums chart. During this time, Simon was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and all efforts to support the record, including a tour, had to be cancelled. Simon's strength during his recovery was aided by his faith, which began as a child growing up in Beckley, West Virginia and rededicating his life to Christ in 2002 with a second baptism. 

Despite Simon's personal hardships, he has enjoyed a stellar career as a member of The Parliaments and Parliament Funkadelic for 20 years that resulted in numerous Platinum and Gold albums, along with the prestigious induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Simon and three other founding members of Parliament Funkadelic formed a new band Original P, and when the group disbanded, the music legend developed a production and record company, Simon Sayz Recordings, which led to Simon becoming a solo Gospel artist.
