It has been said and written on postcards, greeting cards and calendars that ‘A baby is God’s way of telling us that our lives must go on’. Believers hold fast to what His Word says in Psalm 127:3 “Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from Him”. Rejoicing for that Psalm and blessing is Gospel music singer and songwriter Ethan Kent and wife Audrey as they announce the expectancy of their first child.
Ethan is gospel music’s newest songwriting hit-maker and his wife Audrey is an attorney and manager to Ethan. The Texas based young couple, unified in love and ministry, is celebrating their joyous news and special gift in a very unique and giving way. Ethan, with his phenomenal songwriting abilities, wrote a special song for his wife and child “Heartbeat” and through their blessing, the couple has decided to give back to their community.
“Audrey and I thought we should reach beyond ourselves and our moment to find a way to give back,” Ethan explains. “‘Heartbeat’ will be used to help all kinds of people in all kinds of circumstances learn the value and the power of a human life.” A portion of the proceeds from the digital download sales of “Heartbeat” will be donated to Pre-Born Friends (The Woman’s Choice Resource Center), a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping women in crisis while remaining advocates for the pre-born child.
“Heartbeat” is a lyrically precious lullaby and inspirational ballad that is available on iTunes now. You can read Ethan and Audrey’s touching personal story of “Heartbeat” in Ethan’s blog http://ethantkent.tumblr.com/. The lyric video for “Heartbeat” can also be watched and shared via Youtube.
Ethan has enjoyed a great year with the release of his WORK IN PROGRESS CD which recently landed at #21 on Billboard Top Current Gospel Albums Chart. His edgy and soulful songwriting and musicianship abilities have garnered him three chart topping Gospel radio singles – “My Hope Is In Glory”, “Bring Us To Our Knees” and “The Name of The Lord”. WORK IN PROGRESS released on Ethan’s own Tonic Blueprint label is noted by the industry as a fresh and uplifting musical awakening to contemporary gospel music.
