*Trust in You — Anthony Brown & group therAPy continue to prove their ‘worth’ this week as the new single, “Trust In You,” soars to #1 on the Gospel Digital Sales chart this week. Also a critical success, “Trust In You,” is the most added song on the Billboard Gospel Airplay chart.
“Trust In You,” marks Brown’s second single on this week’s Digital Sales chart as “Worth” continues to hold strong at #6.
The purposeful worship song showcases Brown’s songwriting prowess and exceptional ability to tap into the heart of a worshipper. He recently debuted the video for the song online to quick positive response. In recent times of uncertainty and doubt, Brown reminds us where to put our trust.
Brown & group therAPy continue to work on their ambitious third album A Long Way From Sunday slated for release later this year. Plans this summer include pop-up performances around the country as well as additional appearances. Brown also recently announced the launch of his new clothing line, Mercy Life + Apparel.
After spending some fruitful years in the background, songwriter, arranger, and background vocalist Anthony Brown stepped forward in 2012 with Anthony Brown & group therAPy.
The strange capitalization referred to the group’s beginnings in 2000, when Brown launched the group Answered Prayers to showcase his songwriting. As Brown’s work played a role in hit gospel albums like Maurette Brown-Clark’s The Dream (2007) and Stephen A. Hurd’s Times of Refreshing (2009), Answered Prayers evolved into group therapy.
Three years of performances — 2006, 2007, and 2012 — on BET’s annual Celebration of Gospel special preceded their self-titled 2012 debut. Released by Tyscot Records, the album featured guest appearances from Maurette Brown Clark and VaShawn Mitchell. In 2015 they returned with Everyday Jesus, an album that featured the gospel chart-topping hit “Worth.” ~ David Jeffries
