After putting his career on hold to focus on his family, Dathan Thigpen, the season eight winner of “Sunday Best All Stars,” believes God has redeemed all the gospel singer believed was lost.

Thigpen, the 34-year-old Jackson native, is a husband of seven years and father of two who believes God has honored him for choosing to halt his music aspirations for three years in order to focus on family during a rocky time in his marriage.

Devoting more of his time to family also meant the father of 3- and 5-year-old boys would lose out on furthering his singing career.

“I literally stopped traveling, stopped doing things, and I said ‘Lord, I was literally building momentum’ and I was like, ‘what is happening? I know I need to focus on my family but I feel like I’m losing time,’” he revealed to The Christian Post. “I knew God honored the fact that I was supporting my family and trying to make my family work. So me shutting down my entire career for three years I feel like winning this could be God redeeming that time that I feel like I lost. That means the world to me.
