“The Information Age is fantastic because it connects millions of exceptional souls in ways we never imagined. It’s also a place where too many voices try to push you toward their idea of perfection,” Drake says when asked about the song. “There’s only one voice you need to listen for in the middle of all that.”
Kennedy’s new single, “Only You,” (https://youtu.be/fITTLPUiW3s) addresses this issue with a powerful message of hope. Encouraging people to listen to God above in His plan for their lives is a message he hopes will touch audiences. “It’s easy to lock away your hopes and dreams and listen to what the world demands. But God’s plan – that’s the only voice that’s going to allow you to be who you were created to be. It can take a lifetime to really understand His word, but practice will bring us into a world where we can find peace and hope in our God-given identity.”
Having recently opened for both Jamie Grace and JJ Weeks, Kennedy is looking forward to planning a tour of his own. The buzz around “Only You” following the surprising success of “Right By Me,” is making it look like that tour might be coming sooner rather than later. “Only You,” has already received #1 in streams and #3 in downloads on Play MPE the first week it was pre-released to radio.
While tour plans continue to take shape, Drake Kennedy is looking forward to the opportunity to bring his faith and music to different corners of the U.S. over summer and fall 2015. For info on booking a local appearance by Kennedy, you can reach out to Lori Kennedy by calling 678-725-6362.
