There is favor in being faithful and you don’t have to cross over to achieve success.
Humble was able to perform one his songs at the Red Bud Classic in 1999. Being on the program with gospel greats Luther Barnes, Lee Williams, and Harvey Watkins, Jr. set off a musical spark that would inspire him to continue writing, playing, and singing. His newly released single “He’s Alive” is current being marketing for radio airplay. Humble admits “I had gone some bad times in my life when it felt like I was going to lose my mind”. “The journey was rocky with divorce, sleeping in a friends van in the backyard, no food, or job” says Humble. He recognizes that God turned it all around for him. He smiles and lets the world know that Gospel music is a part of his life and there is NO turning back.
