Antwan Jenkins
Victory - Single

Street Date: August 28, 2020
Style: Contemporary / Gospel
Official Site: AntwanJenkinsMusic.com
Get It: iTunes



Contemporary and gospel artist Antwan Jenkins is the type of musician that is as diverse in his abilities to play, sing, lead, teach, coach, and build a team as they come. His list of credits is a long one, from leading God's Purpose Choir and Divine Connection Ministries, to leading worship at New Life Community Church in Indianapolis, Indiana among other community gatherings called "A Night of Unified Worship." His two-song debut is an excellent taste of what he is capable of with the funky, joy-filled "Victory," which features call and response defiance toward the enemy, and the soulful ballad "More of You." The vocal talent and power of his charisma palpably leaps through the speakers leaving a desire for this reviewer to hear more. Laudably, Jenkins avoids some of the common pitfalls of the gospel genre (and live worship industry, for that matter) like runtimes that seem to stretch far beyond necessary, often leaving me reaching for the skip button. He deftly maneuvers past this issue, and leans not only on his own undeniably strong vocals, but features others to further accent a strong release. I truly look forward to hearing more from Antwan Jenkins, with these two songs hopefully just being the start of even greater things very soon.
