First Listen: Will Downing sings a song for our time

(April 11, 2020) Will Downing is certainly known for his entertaining, fun live shows. But his fans know that he is a man of depth, and that depth came to the forefront after his recovery more than a decade ago from Polymyositis, a rare muscular disease. It inspired a recommitment to his faith, both in his life and his music. 

That faith was never clearer than on his 2018 hit album The Promise, Will’s first disc fully centered on spiritual matters. And as we now face a great season of uncertainty, disease and death, where faith is at a premium, Will has remixed a particularly appropriate song from The Promise. “I Hear A Voice” is a reminder that comfort and peace can be found when we listen to God’s whisper. And that’s a message that is needed right now.

And that’s a message that is needed right now.

Will tells us, "I think the message is just primed for whats going on in the world right now. Its hard to explain but I believe we all need and needed to slow down just a bit. I found that life was stressing me out a little, I was over thinking everything, second guessing myself, existing and not really enjoying life. The lyrics to this song have always resonated with me (and I didn't write it). Tells me to chill and trust God. So I felt that maybe some other folks are going through the same thing or feeling the same way it might ease their minds."

Enjoy this new look at this beautiful song from Mr. Downing. We hope it helps.
