The word gospel is translated to mean good news, and there is no better way to describe the music delivered by John Edmonds. Even so, gospel music is not the only genre to which you will be exposed at a John Edmonds concert.
“I’m a gospel singer by style,” says Edmonds, “but I’m just a simple message singer at heart.” This nationally and internationally acclaimed singer/pianist, who will soon celebrate 50 years of professional performing, has a repertoire that includes tunes such as “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother,” “I Believe I Can Fly,” “I Believe In Music” and “What The World Needs Now Is Love.” Of course, his listeners will also hear great gospel standards such as “How Great Thou Art,” “My Life Is In Your Hands,” “Joshua,” and “How I Got Over.”
“I like to sing songs that convey a message of peace, hope, joy and love,” Edmonds continues, “love for God, for one’s self, and for one’s fellow man.” Edmonds adds that he intends for his musical messages to reach people of all religions and all denominations. “It is my desire that even non-believers will be inspired by my songs.”
