On Monday (Nov. 7), Dante Bowe, the Grammy award-winning gospel singer whose relationship with contemporary worship music collective Maverick City Music was recently put on “pause” due to his inappropriate behavior, posted a new song for anyone who has had a “hard couple of months.”
Bowe posted the song on Instagram. In the post, he is singing while playing the piano. The video is captioned, “I wrote this for anyone who’s had Hard couple of months. Hold on ❤️.”
The 90-second song encourages listeners to hold on, even when fighting battles get hard. Bowe tells his fans that “sometimes you have to lose it all to make room for bigger things, but fight back with only your heart pointed towards God. That’s all I know, if you can just hold on.”
The following are lyrics to Bowe’s new song:
Hold on, hold on, hold on and don’t let go.
The author of our future is still in control.
Fighting battles can get hard, oh my God, just hold on, and don’t let go.
Just hold on and don’t let go.
If you’re looking for miracles, they’re out there, wait and see.
Sometimes, you have to lose it all to make room for bigger things.
But fight back with only your heart pointed towards God.
That’s all I know, if you can just hold on.
La la la la la la la
Take a step and just trust in God
Bowe lets out a heavy sigh after finishing the song, possibly showing those watching that the lyrics come from a deeply personal place.
It isn’t specifically known what caused Maverick City Music to pause their relationship with Bowe. In September, they surprised the Christian music world when they released a statement saying, “Due to behavior that is inconsistent with our core values and beliefs, we have decided to put a pause on our professional relationship with Dante Bowe.”
A few days later, Bowe posted on Instagram, saying, “I sincerely apologize for the impact of my behavior and that it has offended many people on the platform we share together. This experience has been a very real reminder of the importance of being incredibly intentional with how I utilize and engage with the tools social platforms provide.”
Bowe’s apology, which was met with thousands of supportive comments, has since been deleted.
ChurchLeaders has reached out to Bowe for comment and will update in the event of his response.
