Good News in These Bad Times

Kevin Michael Thompson

In cart Not available Out of stock

Kevin's latest album, Good News in These Bad Times, is a tip of the hat to some of the gospel albums he grew up loving. The title is inspired by a sermon by the late Reverend S.M. Lockridge and sets the tone for gospel theme of the album. Highlights include the soulful Nail Scarred Hands, the plaintive I Believe, Help My Unbelief as well as several reworked hymns such as O Love Divine What Hast Thou Done and Holy, Holy, Holy.
