Devon Baker Releases His First Single off New Project

Mr. Devon Baker is an amazing testimony of when the Lord calls you answer. Even when you don’t want to. After singing background for a host of well known gospel recording artists, a career opening pushed him into a solo male gospel recording artist category. Now unaccompanied by a stage of many, Devon Baker has made his way center stage.  Devon Baker’s commanding tenor is his gift from God and his gift has now made room for him. He has received many accolades from his cohorts in the gospel community such as Bishop Paul Morton, Israel Houghton and Darwin Hobbs. Also, he played a major role in gospel recording artist and songwriter Ted Winn’s music ministry. Sometimes people can get comfortable just being in a place where they are supposed to be temporary. Devon Baker had to learn in spite of his comfort, to whom much is given much more is required.

Kevin Lemons &  Higher Calling a ministry birthed out of true musicians. Worship which brings an anointing, with each song culminating into the next. The Cd Destined For Greatness is a worshipers weapon. Destined For Greatness will confirm that Word in you, impacting your soul. Reminding you that the Lord made a promise and He is able to keep it. If you join them in worship you are most likely to receive that promise by the end of the Cd or performance. I call it my civil rights in the Kingdom of God Cd. The Cd is filled with classic confessions of faith and trust in the Lord most High.

I had the pleasure of speaking to one of the members Demetrius Banks who informed me of a sophomore project, King of Glory which was recorded live and soon to be released this year 2012.  Currently, Higher Calling has grown into a 45-voice, powerhouse gospel choir known for their skillful vocals, energetic performances, trendsetting style and overall excellence in ministry.  The best way to describe Higher Calling is encouraging, pure worship with no embellishment.
