Lamont Sanders‘ story is a true testimony to God’s perfect timing. The calling of the former R&B singer, previously signed to Babyface, weighed heavy on him before he shifted directions.

Despite what his peers thought and despite what the money looked like, he gave up the rockstar nights for worship music that wasn’t accepted by the gospel industry right away. Ministry, however, prevailed and now he’s ready to move forward with a single called “Forever Mercy.” In addition to his new music, he was recently recognized with a “Leading Man in Music Honors” award in his New Jersey hometown.

“It’s one thing to be appreciated traveling, but to be appreciated at home where you grew up, to have them reach out and say they wanted to honor me? I can’t tell you [how much that means to me],” he said.
