In recognition of Dr. Earnest Pugh’s notable successes and inspiring career in gospel music, the city of Houston and the Honorable Mayor Sylvester Turner will commemorate Dr. Pugh’s 11th Top 20 Billboard Single, “I Need You to Breathe,” with an exclusive music video preview and celebration.

“I Need You to Breathe” hails as a chart-topping single from Pugh’s highly anticipated forthcoming release entitled “Fully Persuaded,” due in stores June 2nd. Producers of “Fully Persuaded” include Michael Bereal, Keith Williams, Lucious Hoskins and DeVon Goodwin.

Pugh has experienced incredible success in Gospel music as an award-winning artist, producer and label owner of P-Man Music, but this recognition takes special meaning with Pugh.

“I am so humbled by this gesture from Mayor Turner. He has been a consistent supporter since I first relocated to Houston. While always knew that he believed in my gift and ministry, this gesture and recognition truly blew me away!  It’s an honor to live in a city with a mayor who has such a clear love and passion for inspirational and spiritual matters, and despite his many priorities, would take time to recognize and encourage my achievements in the music industry,” says Pugh.
