His distinguished soulful voice is undeniably anointed. His songwriting is prolific and respects no boundaries to culture, age or denominations. Since his entry into the Gospel music industry with songwriting contributions to Fred Hammond’s Grammy Award-winning FREE TO WORSHIP album and his own chart-topping hits “Keep Me” and “Open The Heavens”, PATRICK DOPSON has become an eminent voice in Christian and Gospel music.
His new comforting and poignant worship single “GOD Is” has been making its way up the Gospel BDS Radio Charts and has entered the Top 15 songs. “GOD Is” is available on iTunes and the official lyric video can be viewed and shared on Youtube. Dopson is readying his forthcoming sophomore release GOD IS (fill in the blank) which will release on his Oilonit Music label and Central South Distribution.
Dopson recently performed at ASCAP’s ATL Live on the Park Gospel Brunch at Park Tavern in Atlanta, GA and has been commissioned to make several forthcoming high-profile appearances. He will be performing at the Morehouse School of Medicine Official Inauguration of their sixth president Valerie Montgomery Rice, MD on Thursday, September 11th in Atlanta, GA.
