FOR FANS OF: Hezekiah Walker, Richard Smallwood,
An ordained minister, Hutchins takes the message of
his music seriously. Backed by a high-powered choir and an enterprising band,
the Grammy-nominated writer, producer and worship leader treats his platform as
a pulpit and his audience as the congregation, fervidly sharing the Gospel with
a revival-inducing gutteral growl on his latest live recording. More
traditional in approach, Hutchins relevantly reminds gospel musicians to
worship, not simply perform.
