He has written so many great songs that grace so many Sunday services, songs that have had even those who are not staunch Gospel fans asking “he wrote that song as well?” Thankfully, he is releasing the two disc Anthology, which features new songs, a journey back to his Smallwood Singers days and of course his hits with Vision. Maurette Brown Clark begins “In Your Presence” acapella and delivers a wonderfully executed solo as Vision comes in to round out

The song, “Dirt Road,” had more to it than the title suggests, telling the story of a Southern kid who begins to reject the message his preacher sends down from the pulpit.
