The Pulse of Entertainment: Anthony
Ponder & Ministry's Desire Release "God Won't Fail'
(July 26, 2022) - "The singers were handpicked," said Anthony
Ponder about his vocalists Ministry's Desire who as Anthony Ponder & the Ministry's Desire (APMD)
just released the first single, "God Won't Fail" from their upcoming album "The
Grateful Project" (Enon Music Group). "It started with me as a vision. It took two to three years
trying to find the right fit (vocalists)."
Ponder's Ministry's Desire offers a powerful Praise and Worship
ensemble of singers. All have that solo artist talent and when combined they vocally move the heavens demanding to be heard.
"I had auditions...and some people I saw, I wanted," he told me when I asked how he came to have such talent.
"At least two of my members were not looking to sing permanently. Just, you know, fill in when needed. But they fell
in and now they family."
Anthony Ponder & Ministry's Desire are Billboard Chart toppers thanks to their
last album "The Process" which garnered the hit single" That's Just Favor." The album "The Process"
featured vocal assistance from Vashawn Mitchell, Nancey Jackson-Johnson and Natalie Wilson and is written by Anthony, Melissa
Tatro and Jonathan Ponder.
Anthony Ponder and his ensemble of powerhouse singers recently won a Kindred Music Award for
Best Urban Contemporary Group.
"The next phrase is to keep working the single to a smash hit, then the album,"
Ponder pointed out when asked. "This body of work is so magical. I am really excited about it."
When God gives you a vision, that's magical. He is also entrusting you with His
will to be done knowing you will make it happen. For those who have lived long enough to see how God makes that vision real
there is a high level of excitement.
The next level for Anthony Ponder is collaborations with some of today's biggest
Contemporary Gospel artists.
When I asked him what his future holds if he had his way he said, "I want to
work with other artists on a bigger platform."
With the talent he has assembled I see Ponder being the big
platform himself one day that others that follow him will seek to collaborate with. I see nothing but big things for Anthony
Ponder & Ministry's Desire. www.APMDNow.com
