Soulful singer and songwriter Patrick Dopson is a Dove Award-nominated artist and a Stellar Award-winning creative whose Billboard Chart-topping Gospel hits include "God Is" and "God Is Able". After a few years away from recording and plowing through the unprecedented changes and challenges of last year, Dopson continues to push his anointed and poignant pen to craft healing and hope-filled music to inspire the world.
"Over the last year, like many, I found myself writing from my own experiences and struggles with the multiple pandemics we've faced," Dopson shares. "Covid-19, the political and church divide, depression, isolation, loss, indifference, and fear have all come to undo our Peace. We all have sensed the ebbs and flows stemming from the challenges of 2020. When inundated with it all, it's easy to forget the One orchestrating it all for our good and that His promises still stand true."
The world continues to seek peace and understanding amidst many social challenges. Dopson responds with his signature warm vocals on a powerful new single "Make It Alright".
Dopson explains, "I began writing this song on a Sunday afternoon, a day that we would typically be in church. I began to feel the encouragement of the Holy Spirit to assure me that God would make it alright. He reminded me of a scripture that I've quoted many times: He will perfect that which concerns me, Psalms 138:8. At that moment that was all I needed. The rest began to pour out. I laughed at myself because I sat at my piano and everything started to come out real churchy. I knew then that I wanted others to be encouraged by it, and I wanted to have a legendary voice of the church to join me on this record."
"Make It Alright" is written by Dopson and Kevin Camp (Israel & New Breed, Smokie Norful, Regina Belle, Donnie McClurkin). Dopson invited Gospel music legend Pastor John P. Kee to join him on the new single.
"I'm very ecstatic about this release," says Dopson. "I'm thankful to have my friend Kevin Camp working with me. He does an outstanding job in interpreting my heart with the music. We're really hoping to encourage people right now, right where they are."
"Make It Alright" is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon Music now. The single will release on all digital music outlets on February 5. "Make It Alright" is also impacting Gospel radio now across the country.
