If you like old school Fred Hammond and Israel Houghton, then you will like the freshness that Patrick Dopson is bringing to gospel music! I first learned of Mr. Dopson, when I attended an event during Stellar Awards weekend. He was one of the featured performers, and I’ll admit at first I was paying him dust. In the reading of his bio, it was said that Fred Hammond was among his musical influences; so when he started singing “Keep Me” many in attendance had our mouths fall open at the wonderful sound that was coming from Patrick Dopson. We just were not expecting that! Not long into his song, myself and many others could no longer just sit and watch, but stood up clapping, worshipping and praising along with Patrick Dopson! “Open The Heavens” is the self-produced album from Patrick Dopson, released on May 1, 2012 and is available in stores and on iTunes!
