Ben Fuller recently was nominated as the Gospel Music Association’s (GMA) 2023 New Artist of the Year and is continuing to refresh and record music—this time with Megan Danielle. Danielle was a favorite on the 21st season of “American Idol,” which catapulted her music career.

“I couldn’t help but just believe her every word,” Fuller said when he heard Danielle sing a cover of his song, “If I Got Jesus.”

In a Facebook reel, Fuller shared a clip of the “If I Got Jesus” music video. The song featured Fuller and Danielle singing soulful and rugged lyrics and was released on April 12.

“I couldn’t help but just believe her every word when I heard @megandaniellemusic sing a cover of ‘If I Got Jesus,'” Fuller said. “A few weeks later she was in the studio singing her heart.”

“I’m privileged and humbled by your love for Jesus, Megan,” Fuller continued. “What a gift you are to so many, and thanks again for singing with me.”

Fuller and Danielle, along with Jacob Dixon, shared a stage at a night of worship in Gainesville, Georgia, earlier this year.

Originally part of Fuller’s self-titled album, “If I Got Jesus” was released in 2023. Fuller, Ethan Hulse, and Jeff Pardo wrote the song that eloquently states how important a journey with Jesus is—now and forever:

There were bridges crossed and burned
But through all the wreckage I have learned
There is one thing that I can never lose

If I’ve got Jesus
I’ve got all that I could ever need
Take the world away from me
And I’ll be ok
If I’ve got Jesus
There’s a hope that’s living deep inside
A joy that I could never hide
And a safe place to fall
If I’ve got Jesus
I got it all

Thousands of fans reacted to the Facebook reel and commented with incredible support for them both.

“Ben this has to be one of my favorites. Your voices together are truly heaven sent and brings, ‘If I got Jesus’ to a new level,” posted one. Another shared, “Oh so glad to see Megan singing with you!! We followed her on American Idol and love her voice!!”
