Artist Discovery: Michael Bethany
If you’ve seen Fred Hammond in concert over the past 5 years or so, you are more than likely familiar with Michael Bethany. The St. Louis native has been in the Hammond camp since 2005, first appearing on the Free to Worship CD. Bethany added a producer credit to his resume and co-wrote They That Wait on Hammond’s 2009 Love Unstoppable CD. But the major impression was made by his acapella, soul-stirring, heartfelt rendition of I Need You Right Away. Michael’s heart for worship has been cultivated since his youth and is evident in his powerful God invoking delivery. Let’s say it like this, when Michael Bethany sings, God comes near.
Bethany is set to come into his own as he is now putting the finishing touches on his first solo project scheduled for release in the summer of 2013. We know and can say without equivocation that Michael Bethany is definitely one of 2013’s big things. While you wait, enjoy this clip
