This would be his breakthrough released upon the Billboard Gospel Albums chart. He would release another album, A Worshipper’s Heart, in 2016 with EntertainmentOne Nashville, and this would place even higher on the Gospel Albums chart.
He was athletic as a youth, playing sports in particular baseball, where he would play at a local community college, Wabash Valley College, getting drafted by the New York Mets in the 2002 MLB June Amateur Draft as a 32nd round selection. He never reached the major leagues but played his short stint as a professional baseball player in the minor leagues. He decided after the 2005 season to retire from the sport because he felt God’s call to play gospel music, which he did under the tutelage of an artist, Smokie Norful, who asked him to tour with him.

This time it placed even higher at No. 23 on the aforementioned chart because it was released digitally along with extended content.
