Just a week into the release of his newest release, Unstoppable, GospelPundit.com caught up with VaShawn Mitchell to chat about the new album, why he’s not worried about music industry woes and more!
GP: Your new album, Unstoppable, seems to have some pop music elements, at least more than your most recent projects. What informed the musical direction of this album
VM: I have always been an avid student of music in all its various forms and genres. As the Lord continues to stretch and mature the gift He has given me, it has led me to expand my musical expressions. I am finding that this expansion allows the message to reach a wider variety of audiences and allows them to find themselves in the music.
GP: Unstoppable features guest appearances from some great artists, including Tasha Cobbs, Anthony Brown and Jonathan McReynolds. With tons of friends in the industry, how did you decide on who to include on this particular album?
VM: I am truly honored by the favor God has given me within the gospel music industry over the last 18 years. Each guest on this project is someone whose musical gift I not only believe in, but I am a fan of. For this project, it was simply matching the message with the particular messenger God laid on my heart. Trust me– it was a complete joy working with every person on this project and I am proud that they would partner with me in the release of the sound God has given me for this time. It’s awesome being both a fan and a friend!
