Who is Anthony Evans?
“Anthony Evans knows how to lead people into our Lord’s presence and step out of the way…” – Max Lucado
In 2001 Christian music gained a new voice when legendary innovator Kirk Franklin asked Anthony Evans to join his ministry. Evans harmonized with his mentor and friend for four extraordinary years, until the rhythm his own maturing music set in motion a solo career. Now, for a decade, Anthony has voiced the Gospel with such a melodic, thought-provoking style that he has immerged as one of Christian music’s premiere male vocalists …and worship leaders.
“What makes Anthony’s music incredible is his voice. What makes his ministry incredible is his heart. What makes his message incredible is his walk with the Lord.” – Franklin Graham
A much-sought-after leader of worship, Anthony has garnered invitations across the spectrum from Franklin Graham events, to such venues as The National Worship Leader’s Conference. As a live performer, Evans has shared the stage with such talents as Yolanda Adams, David Phelps, FFH and Natalie Grant. And as a composer/ artist, Anthony’s crossover music has vibrated both the doors of the church and ventured beyond.
“The impressive quality of Anthony’s voice is obvious. He is a gifted singer. But as his personal friend, I can also attest to his love for God and his heart to communicate that love to people through his music ministry.” –Natalie Grant
Over the course of his 21ST Century career Anthony Evans has released six major studio projects; Even More, Letting Go, The Bridge, What Christmas Means, Undisguised, and the highly anticipated 2011 release, Home. Each composition is engaging, illuminating; evoking an atmosphere of introspection and inspiration. The result is a musical journey well worth taking; an adventure many worship-minded, music lovers deliberately experience, again and again.
Not only have two Evan’s music videos stayed in the #1 spot on Gospel Music Channel for five consecutive weeks, but in 2008, Anthony’s “The Bridge” topped the charts as the #1 downloaded Christian album in the country.
“…I’ve noticed that there is something God does between my mouth and the audience’s ears. Somehow He translates my honest emotions and connects them with what is honestly going on inside each listener.” – Anthony Evans
Now, having over a decade of life-changing ministry, the rhythm of his ever-maturing mission shows no sign of slowing down.
