Anthony Evans gets personal in his new contemporary worship album Back to Life

Artist Anthony Evans returned to the studio to release new music through an overall upbeat and driving worship album in Back to Life. This album follows his run a few years ago on the hit singing competition show “The Voice” on NBC. With six albums already in his discography, Evans faced a fork in the road musically to pursue more worship music or go sing more “life situational” music complementary of the songs he sang on the season 2 of the show.

This LP is a step forward in his personal journey to be an authentic, vulnerable and honest voice on fire for God through his art. There are so many solid contemporary tracks on this album regarding a personal relationship with God that most can relate to. The title track “Back to Life” reflects Evans’ pursuit of the Lord instead of striving for what could not satisfy the soul outside of God.

“Believe” is an energetic declaration of faith in the Lord’s promises and plans for His children. This and several other songs like “God of Breakthroughs” stir the listener to sing/talk to the Father. I think this is important because not everyone is accustomed to traditional Christian or Gospel music. We are talking to and praising God, our strength, redeemer, protector and Father, and these tracks can reach the seasoned Gospel fan as well as those more familiar to the top 40/pop music genre.

The Back to Life album is easy to listen to throughout the day and it speaks to the many seasons that believers go through in this life. They range from gratefulness for the current season in the up-tempo “Everything Changes” to expecting the miracles of God in the triumphant leading single “See You Again”:

Anthony Evans is no stranger to covers. I first discovered his music years ago when I heard a beautiful rendition he sang of “Here I Am to Worship.” This album has a contemporary cover of “Ever Be,” and co-writes plenty of new content with big talent in the music industry to bring a diverse and modern sound to worship. He even updated a 2004 song he co-wrote, “Incredible”, with Gospel great Kirk Franklin and the 2017 revamp definitely brings to memory the days with God’s Property.

“There’s been life breathed back into my career because [God] was giving me truth and lessons in unexpected places,” shared Evans on producing the worship album in Hollywood, California.

The final track “Because of Your Prayers” is a heartfelt ode to his grandmother that many of us could relate to: the thankfulness of the steadfast prayers of faith of the generations before us. The song ends the album on an old time Gospel note with warmth.

Back to Life is definitely worth adding to your daily queue of music. Evans is also brother to author and minister Priscilla Shirer (War Room), who he’s currently touring the country with on the FerVent Tour now throughout the spring. They will both be in Chicago on May 27th for a night of worship and inspiration.

WHATUPRG Welcomes You To A New Hollywood with his new KIDS single!

Millennials and Gen Zs are terms used to describe the people of a certain time. The new generation, coming of age today, isn’t waiting for a tagline. They are emerging into a digital age, during a pandemic, and with World War III looming, redefining themselves.


Today’s generation has grown up with Uber/Lift, Airbnb, YouTube, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat and more. Music, movies, and entertainment are available to them anytime and anywhere. They have always had food delivery, digital map directions, videos and music, and a cloud full of information always at their fingertips. They were raised talking into devices, accessing apps, posting pictures, videos, and music. Everything in this time is new! Even Hollywood is changing and the new Hollywood is about diversification!


Bringing something new and diverse to music is Reach Records artist WHATUPRG, whose name is synonymous with innovation and authenticity. His trademark combination of Latin rhythms, trap hip-hop, flawless lyricism, and captivating storytelling has enshrined him as an elite amongst his peers. When hip-hop artists express their faith, they’re often confined to the CHH genre. RG’s art is prolific, progressive, and challenges the culture in a way too eclectic way for any subgenre’s limitations. “KIDS,” the first from his forthcoming album, New Hollywood, is about setting new standards. He punches over 808 drums and haunting synths while chanting the album’s theme, “We don’t pretend more” and “kids don’t die we go up high.” In this case, high means higher to God, an exalted level. 


Releasing music at one of the wildest, unpredictable times in history, RG has been processing his coming of age while battling depression. Despite personal struggles, he is determined to create beautiful music that shifts the culture. His previous EP’s Pleasant Hill and the self-titled Raul have proven his capability to channel his personal experiences and journey through faith to offer something substantial to the zeitgeist.

RG says of his forthcoming album,
“If people want to call it CHH, then this album is the gospel, according to WHATUPRG. New Hollywood is a place where you don’t have to box yourself in. You can just be yourself. Being yourself is enough.”


Through his lyrics, listeners will find a creative powerhouse who is putting himself in the context of a new generation questioning the role Christianity must play in finding personal and world peace. To all who are weary and heavy burdened, welcome to New Hollywood!

Grammy & Dove Nominated Brandon Peavy, better known as BrvndonP, recently dropped his latest EP “Outta Line”. This new release is the second in a series of 4-EPs. Each of the 4 EPs are expected to explore different genres of music. Outta Line explores his pop side.

Exploring new sounds isn’t new for BrvndonP. This artist/producer is known for his versatility. Previously known as Black Knight, Brandon is also a rapper and producer. He has produced, worked with and shared the stage with artists such as Lecrae, Andy Mineo, KB, Gucci Mane, Logic, E-40 and more. It only takes one listen to his older releases and productions to realize how versatile he can be! He plans to take us all down a new musical pathway with his newest EP and coming releases. And we’re ready for the journey!

BrvandonP is the founder of RPSMG label which houses the likes of K.Agee, X0Ellentz, JG, and Mission. He is currently signed to RMG Amplify. BrvndonP’s reach goes beyond CHH and Gospel which are both genres he has thrived in. His crossover sound has pulled a strong demand from fans who are typically found listening to artists like J Cole, Kid Ink, Travis Scott, Drake and Justin Bieber. Much like many of those artists, Brandon has become known for showing authenticity within his music.

Brandon’s sound stands apart as the only hip hop that weaves weighty topics, truth, humor, and inspiration from all genres of music into one cohesive and excellent work. It is in Brandon’s ability for self-reflection where his fans discover the honesty in his music.

Brvndon’s take is simple. “At the end of the day, I want to sit at the table of hip-hop, be respected for my artistry and have an opportunity to bring what I believe to the mix like everyone else does.”
