In an interview with Breathecast, critically acclaimed singer Anthony Evans opened up about his newest contemporary album, his success since being on “The Voice,” and tearing down the walls of the church to expand his reach to those outside of its four walls.
Evans described his musicals style as pop and R&B, infused with worship, and that is surely a great example of what listeners will get from his latest album Real Life/Real Worship, debuting nationwide on April 8.
Since his time on The Voice, Evans has recorded with Mega Stars such as CeeLo Green, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. He said although a worshiper at heart, he would consider a pop career, but it would still be, “Anthony the Christian guy doing pop music.”
“I won’t compromise my faith to have another career, my faith would still be on my record,” he clarified. Evans’ new album has a few cuts that are not strictly “Christian.”
“The Voice broadened my mind,” the singer/songwriter declared. The head of reality casting of ABC told Evans at his time of audition, “‘why are you 28 and I’ve never heard of you before?’” the singer said that one statement completely changed his “perspective.”
Upon hearing the casting director’s comment, he immediately thought to himself, “maybe God gave me this ability for inside the church walls, and outside if it,” he explained.
