In an exclusive interview with the Singersroom, R&B/Gospel superstar Dave Hollister spoke about his new Album MANUscript and his love for God. Here’s some of that interview:
The New album, The MANuscript: This album is different, and I consider this one very special. This album is for women, 90% for women. I made this album as a way to let women know they are appreciated and should be attended to at all times. I wanted to be the voice of reason and the voice for the men. Mary J. [Blige] is for the women, so that’s the frame of mind I had for this album. I wanted to make a record where the woman gives this to her man and is like, “Baby, if you want to figure out what I want or need, listen to this album.” The record was like a manual for men so they can know why it’s important to treat women with respect and simply love them wholeheartedly.
Merging R&B with Gospel Music: I’ve been gracious enough to both; it’s just God’s grace that’s been placed in my life. It’s truly a blessing. I can record a gospel or R&B album because I am a messenger. It’s not about being an R&B or gospel artist; it’s about my ability to make music that will impact people lives. I’m not trying to put myself in a box. I have to say, whatever God puts on my heart, He will direct my steps. Whatever God assigned me to do at the moment, I’m going to do at the right time.
