Sanchez sings about the Goodness Of God
Reggae singer Sanchez has recorded a cover version of Goodness of God, a smashing hit that was first done by American singer Jenn Johnson.
The original version of the song, which was nominated for the 2020 GMA Dove Award for Worship Recorded Song of the Year, opens with the powerful line: 'I love You, Lord, For Your mercy never fails me'.
Sanchez, in explaining why he has decided to record a version of the song, said he finds power in its words. He also declared his love for God.
"Despite all that's going on in the world right now, we still must give thanks and praises to Almighty God, for He has been good to us," the singer said.
"I believe that, no matter what you're going through, as long as you're alive, you should give thanks to God. That's why I will always lift my voice to praise His name, and this song is a very beautiful song of praise," he said.
Produced by the US-based label Raw Vue Music, Sanchez's version of Goodness of God is scheduled to be released on June 3.
The musical accompaniment for the song was provided by a group of top-flight musicians, including drummer Kirk 'Kirkledove' Bennett. The mixing and mastering were done by award-winning studio engineer Delroy 'Phatta' Pottinger.
Meanwhile, Sanchez, the Lonely Won't Leave Me Alone hitmaker is better known for his love songs, but is no stranger to gospel music, having released a worship album, Who Is This Man.
"Every time I put out a new gospel song, people keep asking me if I am going to stop singing reggae and focus solely on gospel music, but I cannot predict the future. Everything is in God's hands and, wherever He leads me, I will follow," the singer said.
Sanchez also revealed that he plans to resume touring soon.
"It's been over two years since I haven't performed overseas because of the pandemic. Now that things are getting back to some semblance of normalcy, I'm getting ready to start touring and performing for fans all over the world."
Sanchez said that he is currently working on an album, but did not give any details about the project.
"All I can say is, it's going to be awesome. My fans have been demanding an album from me for a while now and they're going to be amazed when this one is released," he said.
