Rev. Lawrence Thomison Releases Timeless Remix of Classic Hit Single ‘You’ve Been Good to Me’

Rev. Lawrence Thomison, like so many prominent Gospel singers, began singing at a very early age in his grandmother’s church, Fourteenth Avenue Baptist in Nashville, TN. He recorded his first solo album, LIVE IN NASHVILLE, in 1987 and has recorded music and ministered God’s word for over fifty years. Rev. Thomison has now released a revised version of one of his classic hits, “You’ve Been Good To Me.”

“You’ve Been Good To Me (Remix)” was initially released by Rev. Thomison on his Grammy-nominated album NEVER LET GO OF HIS HAND (1993) featuring The Music City Mass Choir. Legendary Gospel artist Dorothy Love Coates wrote the single. In the 1940s, Coates was a member of The Original Gospel Harmonettes. She is most known for her songwriting of hits “You Can’t Hurry God (He’s Right On Time),” “99 and a Half Won’t Do,” “That’s Enough,” and “Get Away Jordan.”

Rev. Thomison has released the new version of the beloved classic song to offer a bit of nostalgia for Gospel music fans of the classics and to present a refreshed sound to the ears and digital playlists of the new generation. For all music consumers, Rev. Thomison wants to give hope and encourage gratitude.

“We must never forget the goodness of Jesus and all he has done for us,” says Rev. Thomison. “As you listen to this song and reflect on your experiences over these past years, always remember that God has been good to all of us.”

“You’ve Been Good To Me (Remix)” is available now on all digital outlets and is recieving airplay on Gospel radio stations.

As a Christian artist and an ordained minister, Rev. Thomison has dedicated over fifty years of singing the good news of the Gospel in prisons, hospitals, shelters, churches, and other venues throughout the country. He has made TV appearances on TBN, BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel, and the Dove Awards, sang for Tennessee’s Governor Bill Haslam, and taken the stage with The Tennessee Repertory Theatre. Above all, Thomison is an entertainer who leads by sharing God’s love.

Rev. Thomison is highly respected and recognized by his peers for his dedication to ministry and spirit of humility. An Amazon Music fan wrote: “Rev Thomison’s voice can make me fall out from the pure emotion and raw energy.” His soulful and sometimes raspy voice along with his controlled crooning abilities will forever keep him dubbed as Gospel’s Quintessential Traditional Male Vocalist.
