Emerging worship artist Stephen B. Steward releases a live music video for “Purify My Soul” to accompany his emotionally driven second single, “Purify My Soul,” ahead of his long-awaited debut album, Enter Your Gates, in stores and online on Tuesday, May 20th. Already winning over listeners for its relatable storyline, the song’s narrative tells of a man’s quest for purity to be closer to Christ. Layered with daring lyrics and his supple baritone, the tune’s music video equally showcases Stephen’s vulnerability and versatility by capturing an intimate praise session.
Leaving behind the distraction of glitz, the showing sees Stephen surrounded by dancers adorned in white as he offers his praise-filled plea for purity. Acting as the official follow-up to his lead single “With My Whole Heart,” (co-written by Andraé Crouch), the soul stirring collaboration with the GRAMMY®-winning gospel legend was greeted with open arms from fans and critics alike. Stephen will host an album release party on May 20th, in Pasadena, CA, at the Pasadena Media, 150 S. Los Robles, Pasadena, CA, 91101. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and features Lowell Pye (former member of the Stellar award winning male trio Men of Standard) and veteren gospel singer Renee Spearman. Admission is a $15 donation which includes the CD and a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Steward’s charity the LOV Olive Branches.
On Monday, May 19th, one of gospel’s leading web portals, Da Gospel Truth will host an exclusive all day digital album listening party of Steward’s debut project, Enter Your Gates.
