I believe Mike Bereal is one of the greatest of all time as it relates to music expression overall. His hard work in California has made a footprint all over this world. He comes from a musical family and he has overtime developed his own sound and creative characteristics while being true to where he comes from. You can hear not only his influences, but his heart when he plays. Working with some of the greats of our time and putting out classics, it's really an honor to have this song, my song, brought to life by him. He and his team brought a level of excitement to this tune and put me in true concert mode. I felt like a kid again. Jamming a gospel hit. I think everyone who hears it will appreciate this song, and the sound that puts you in a contemporary, yet extremely churchy vibe. This sound happens when you put two singing, board playing, drumming church kids together.
After courageously emerging from the ashes of life's trials, the resilience of Chad Stevenson is realized once again. This Pastor, Artist, Musician, Writer, and Producer gathers some of the best musicians and singer together for a moment in time to encourage the world again with powerful songs that we need so much. Every month a new song will be released.
"This music is overdue. I definitely owe it to those who have supported me for years. It's crazy to think that it's been a decade since I've released a personal project, but I hope this is something that will inspire and encourage everyone who listens to it. That's what I've always been about."
With so many complications with completing music as independent artist in a pandemic, Chad Stevenson shows us again what's important; getting the message and the music out by any means necessary. No matter how challenging life becomes, persevere so your God-given purpose can shine through this dark world.
"Reemergence is all about showing my commitment to my assignment. There have been things in my life that I've had to experience, that would wipe out someone else who had to live in my shoes, but I had to push through it all. In most cases, silently. For many people we know what it is to sing and minister to others while so much is crumbling in our own lives. I remember when I wrote 'He Knows', it was a strange period in my life, but the songs international impact really happened when the pandemic came and people needed to hear those words. To see now how far I've come, and so many victories God has won for me, it brings me to that 'Thank Him Enough' piece. Honestly, I'm grateful. Grateful for my gift, my assignment, and my life. Crazy to see how God can use my life for His glory."
Rising a new and rising above is a clear theme in this project. The evolution of this artist is one that is undeniable. After experiencing the worst of life, God gives beauty for ashes, and a new artist is born.
"Definitely something new, and more importantly someone new. I have a new way of living and thinking and it's wonderful. I've never been so free in my life and I think it will show through the music. Death, betrayal, divorce, more death, worldwide effect to the pandemic, and so much more almost buried me. I chose to trust God enough to live again. That's when he lifted me up, and raised me a new. This is a different Chad for sure. I believe my supporters will hear that every month as music is released."
There's even new collaborations that bring a new sound to this project. Divinely produced and strategically released this Ep includes musical contributions from Josh Mayfield, Michael "Mike" Bereal, Tyrone Turner Jr., Roger Chambers, Marq Moody, Wale Owade and the home team Kiana Stewart, and Candace Stevens.
This project is one of two projects being released this year. Currently in production is the Songbook of Believers Chapel Vol II, and continuing saga to the musical collection written by Pastor Chad Stevenson. Over 200 People gathered for a private live recording that was a phenomenal experience. Singers from all over formed a choir to record these powerful songs. This Live Recording will be released Summer of 2022.
