After three decades of celebrated contributions to gospel music alongside award-winning quartet The Christianaires, founding member/singer-songwriter Paul Porter is set to release his long-awaited solo debut project F.R.E.E., on Tre’Myles Music/Motown Gospel/ Mars On Sunday – available in stores and online everywhere on September 2nd, 2014.
While his musical accomplishments are impressive, his personal testimony of triumph over illness is nothing short of miraculous. “In 1996, I had an aneurysm,” Paul shares. “I couldn’t walk or talk, and I lost my memory. I stayed in the bed maybe a year and a half. From 1996-2006 I went through all of the transitions—from the bed to the wheelchair to the walker to the cane. In June 2006, I dropped the cane!” That life-changing event would serve as the inspirational narrative that led to the creation of Porter’s musical testimony of healing – ‘F.R.E.E.’.
