Brian Courtney Wilson’s new album So Proud just debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album’s Chart. Touted as one of the major breakthrough gospel acts of 2010 and 2011 on the strength of his debut Just Love – which was nominated for 3 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards – Wilson is looking to take things to the next level in 2012.
The inspiration for the new album came three years ago when Wilson penned “So Proud,” the title song and the album’s first single. “The song,” Wilson says, “Is about remembering… remembering the reasons why you should keep going when the days seem the hardest… remembering your value when people cast you aside… remembering the people who did not give up on you when you feel like giving up on yourself… and most of all, it’s about remembering that the reason we have so much to remember is because God has always been there to make a way through the people in our lives.”
“So Proud” is a feel-good expression of Brian Courtney Wilson’s own inspiration, heart and soul. Take a listen to Wilson’s super smooth vocals and hear why many are considering him to be the next big thing in gospel.
