ABC RadioGrammy-winning gospel singer Hezekiah Walker is celebrating the success of his hit single “Better” and breaking down its inspirational message.
Walker, who released his album Azuza: The Next Generation 2 – Better last month, hit the top of Billboard‘s Gospel Digital Songs chart with his single “Better.”Hezekiah says his inspirational song came as a way to address civil unrest in America. Walker tells ABC Radio, “Since I did Every Praise, it was little difficult coming up with a song after that. But that I’ve been watching what’s going on in our world. We now, our world is working around with a lot of uncertainty. We don’t know what’s going to happen to our communities.”
He continues, “I watched what went down in Baltimore, Ferguson, and our people are hurting right now. But I really believe with all of my heart… that God is in control.”
Walker, who in addition to being a musician and family man, serves as the pastor of the Brooklyn, New York megachurch, Love Fellowship Tabernacle, says reaching his level of success hasn’t been easy. “It’s a little difficult but you know…So with juggling my career, juggling my family, my daughter, radio, church and pastoring and dealing with people — two churches, two different states — it’s been a journey, but it’s been rewarding,” he explains.
Yet, even in his toughest moments, Hezekiah relies on the word of God. “Better,” which was taken from a scripture in Ecclesiastes, is all about believing God will see you through. In fact, his entire album echoes that belief. Walker tells ABC Radio, “I think my heart for this CD is that I want everyone to gravitate to the words: It’s going to get better.”
