DEBUT PROJECT TO BE RELEASED ON NEWLY FORMED SOAR RECORDS
FRANCIS ALSO GEARING UP FOR THE 2022 SOAR AWARDS IN HOMETOWN OF ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS
February 28, 2022 (Rockford, IL) — At just 33 years old, Justin Djuane Francis has already made an indelible mark on the gospel music industry. As CEO and Founder of Soar Radio, a 24/7 online radio station that features local and national inspirational and gospel talk and music, Francis has twice won the coveted Stellar Award for Internet Radio Station of the year.
On March 18th, Francis may be looking for more “Stellar” recognition, at the release of his debut project entitled, “The Pattern is Broken” (MNRK Nashville, Indie Blu, Soar Records). The project is a blend of anointed ballads, high worship and pentecostal praise. In fact, Francis singlehandedly wrote 90% the project, as he has also previously penned songs for the likes of L. Spenser Smith, Virtue, Joshua’s Troop, Earnest Pugh, Amber Bullock, Darwin Hobbs and many more.
Songs like “I’m in Awe of You,” “Mercy,” and the title track, The Pattern is Broken,” has set this project up to be one of the big contenders in 2022.
The thriving entrepreneur is also hard at work gearing up for the 2022 Soar Awards, which is the second largest gospel music award show. This year’s festivities will be hosted by award winning artist, Todd Dulaney, with appearances and performances by Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Kierra Sheard Kelly, Jonathan McReynolds, Karen Clark Sheard, Isaac Career, Tim Bowman, Jr, and Anthony Brown, among others.
