Entertainment One celebrates the release of GRAMMY-nominated, multi-Stellar Award winner, author and philanthropist Jonathan McReynolds’ latest effort, PEOPLE. PEOPLE doubles as a full-length visual album – the first for the genre of gospel music. PEOPLE boast incredible collaborations with Mali Music, The Walls Group and Pastor Mike Todd and is available now wherever music is sold and streamed at all major digital outlets.
McReynolds’ new EP offers an unconventional approach for God’s people to strive to live a better life. The album’s central theme is to focus on God’s promise and one’s own self-control in order to live eternal life. Proof of this can be found on the EP’s second single “Movin’ On” with Mali Music (RCA Inspiration) in which the two sing, “I am forgetting what’s behind me, I have decided I’ll be moving on.” PEOPLE also includes fan favorites “Grace” and “He Knows“. On “He Knows” he reminds the listener “there is nothing that we can hide from God,” On “Grace” he pens, “I needed your grace more than I thought I ever would.” The track urges listeners to lean on God to deliver us from the self-righteous people that surround us.
“This EP is more proof of God’s sovereignty. He gave me songs for our predicament before we could ever imagine such craziness. This is a collection of songs that are way too relevant – a soundtrack for getting free during lockdown,” shares McReynolds.
Jonathan has released three full length studio albums and one EP. His last full-length album Make Room debuted #1 on Billboard Gospel and garnered a historic 1.3 million streams in the first week, while the EP also birthed McReynolds first #1 single, “Not Lucky, I’m Loved.” Jonathan holds a master’s degree in Theology from Moody Theological Seminary and is currently an adjunct member of the Columbia College faculty. He is also the founder of Elihu Nation, a nonprofit organization that promotes wisdom and recently awarded $30k in scholarships. He was recently named a new member of Mensa, an international high IQ society, as well.
