The collection also boasts an appearance from Mary Mary’s Erica Campbell and Hip-Hop artist 1K Phew on the cut, “He Always Wins”, as well as, a mesmerizing vocal performance from 20-year old rising star, Kelontae Gavin, on the title track 2econd Wind. From meditative praise and worship to power bangers, 2econd Wind: Ready is an exhilarating mix of spiritually uplifting, healing, and rejuvenating songs.
“The album is my personal testimony of a time when I was mentally exhausted and couldn’t find the strength to record in-between albums. Through God’s grace, I received my second wind: a second wind to encourage and give hope lyrically. Continue to trust and see God, He will grant your second wind,”
says ANTHONY BROWN.
2econd Wind: Ready was recorded live on May 3, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlboro, MD where Brown serves on the Music & Arts Ministry staff.
