Singing sensation Ashford Sanders created a buzz on social media in early January when he released a snippet of his cover of The Winans’ hit Millions. Now the Mississippi native stands poised to sing his testimony for all the world to hear via his new single, Because You’ve Been Good from Fountain of Life Records. The Season 5 Sunday Best Top 10 Finalist easily won over the judges and a loyal nationwide following with his heartfelt delivery, inimitable charm and stage presence. Impressed with the Sanders swag, Sunday Best host Kirk Franklin cajoled the audience into “doing the Ashford”, creating a new dance phenomenon. Fans and friends were stunned when he was eliminated from the competition. Nevertheless , Sanders used the frustration to fuel his faith. Today, strengthened and renewed in spirit, Ashford Sanders uses every chance to inspire and encourage others during his many visits to churches, concert halls and college campuses and auditoriums across the country.
Ashford puts his experiences into perspective, “you know, (Bishop) L Spenser Smith is running around here singing my life is a testimony (and he is singing the LIFE into it), but all that happened is he just beat me to the studio (laughs). Seriously, my testimony is the same: God has been good to me and I know I have been blessed. Not that everyday in my life has been good, I have had some sleepless nights and days filled with pain, but I am a living witness that God will bring you through every situation. Now I think I have a bit of musical diversity, I can sing anything, but my heart is in songs with substance, and Because You’ve Been Good sums up how great God has been in my life. I can’t help but thank and praise Him for his goodness TO ME. I was blessed to work with Pharis Evans, Jr. an extraordinary producer and the results are, well, you need to hear it for yourself.”
Because You’ve Been Good hits digital retailers on Monday, February 23rd. Sanders will promote the single with appearances across the South, East and Midwestern United States leading into the GMWA Board Meeting and Stellar Awards week in Las Vegas, Nevada.
