International entertainment icon, Reba McEntire, announced plans to release a Gospel music project in February 2017. The two-disc set will feature both familiar and brand-new songs. Last year, Joseph Habedank, the popular vocalist who has also garnered hits as a songwriter, was surprised to learn that "Sing It Now," a song co-written with Tony Wood and Michael Farren, would be included in this project. Because Reba had not released plans, Habedank could not tell a soul.
This past week in a Facebook live chat, Reba McEntire released details of that project and Habedank was surprised to learn that his tune would be the title track!
"I am humbled that Reba loved this song enough to record it and then to select it as the title for her new Gospel project," said Habedank. "I am honored to share this moment with two of the finest men I know, Tony Wood and Michael Farren."
Joseph Habedank is a multi award-winning and Dove Award nominated singer/songwriter. Joseph has a unique and equally powerful testimony that has been featured on FoxNews.com's Spirited Debate, TBN's Praise the Lord, and in such publications as Billboard Magazine, CCM Magazine, and Glenn Beck's The Blaze.
For ten years, he served first as baritone, then as the lead singer for one of Southern Gospel's favorite family groups, the Perrys, and shared his songs in some of America's greatest churches, including the Brooklyn Tabernacle and Charles Stanley's First Baptist Atlanta. On the heels of his critically-acclaimed debut solo release, Welcome Home, he was awarded Singing News Magazine's New Soloist of the Year in 2014.
Additionally, he was awarded Young Artist of the Year in 2009 by the fans of Gospel Music and Songwriter of the Year at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in 2011. His songs have been recorded by such artists as: Gold City, Brian Free & Assurance, Karen Peck & New River, Lauren Talley, The Hoppers, The Kingsmen, Ivan Parker, Jeff & Sheri Easter, and many more.
He has helped write two nationally charted number one songs and in 2010, "If You Knew Him" (written with Rodney Griffin) was nominated for Southern Gospel Song of the Year at the GMA Dove Awards and won the Singing News Fan Award for Song of the Year. He was also nominated for Singing News Magazine's Male Vocalist of year, Lead Singer of the year and Songwriter of the year for three consecutive years. Joseph currently resides just outside Nashville, TN with his wife, Lindsay.
