Atlanta-based Christian hip hop artist GodFrame releases his third album Hello Jesus Friday, Aug. 10, on GodFrame Entertainment. The 13-track project that includes the single “Forever Always” featuring Broadway singer and actress Chadaé, is available on digital service providers. Today, GodFrame also debuts the lyric video for the title track.
GodFrame, born Terrence Ford, is happy to release his first set since 2014’s All My Friends - EP. “I’m really excited about this project because it’s the first time my fans (the #FRMRZ) will have heard a full body of work from me in four years, and I miss them like crazy,” he says. “It feels really good to release music again, like it’s exactly what I’m supposed to be doing - feels like breathing.” GodFrame produced all of the songs on the album expect for “I’m Alive,” helmed by K.Agee.
The album is meant to inspire listeners to strengthen their relationships with God. “The title, Hello Jesus as well as the paper airplane icon featured in the artwork/marketing is a reminder of the unrelenting presence of God,” he says. “I wanted people to see that just as easily as you would send a direct message to one of your family members or friends. That's how easy it is to communicate with God. A lot of people think that God is this unreachable, unloving, cold-hearted, distant being who isn’t concerned about what we're going through in life. But Psalm 145 tells us that the Lord is near to those who call on him. That means He's with us, He's with you, and He does care.”
A former youth pastor for Grammy-award winning gospel artist Smokie Norful’s Victory Cathedral Worship Center, GodFrame released his debut album Freedom in 2008, his sophomore set You Are Infinite in 2010 and All My Friends - EP in 2014. The artist whose name means “made in God’s image,” fell in love with music at an early age. He began beat-boxing and drumming on pots and pans as a child and later learned to play the piano and saxophone. But as his talent for music expanded, so did his love for God.
