Canton Jones is a gospel singer, rapper, songwriter, producer, pastor and entrepreneur. He talks about his creative process, which pulls from a bunch of different kinds of musical experiences he has had throughout his life. Canton talks about why he has stopped trying to change the minds of those who prefer traditional gospel music, or disapprove of the new age gospel. He also discusses his refusal to accept the stereotype of “preacher’s kids” as a fate for his four children.
Canton opens up about being okay with losing the awards he’s been nominated for, and getting over the loss of his father. Plus, Canton talks about reaching today’s generation of kids and teens, who don’t go to church as much as his generation had to do.
