New Music Review: Rick Hopkins

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

Hopkins WTRbetter 235cvrWest Michigan singer-songwriter and worship leader Rick Hopkins has a new six-song, vocal & acoustic solo project titled “Where the Road Will Lead Us.”

With his latest effort the artist has determinedly built upon the foundation of his earlier albums.
The overall theme of the new release is faith-inspired community and service.

The opening “Hold My Hand” sets the stage with its combination of Hopkins’ warm vocals and pleasing guitar. The message urges holding on to faith for the long haul as we follow amazing grace to the place “where the road will lead us.”

“Don’t Go” is song that reflects on the grief of knowing that the artist “never said how I feel” before losing a loved one, yet trusting in the grand scope of God’s mercy.

There’s another brush with God’s grace in “What I Don’t Know.” Despite all of life’s unknowns the lyric assures….“in the end I know you love me all the same.”

The other selections are similarly effective.

A former worship leader at Ada Bible Church, Hopkins currently is an assistant worship leader at a church near his Saranca home.

“Where the Road Will Lead Us” is available on a variety of digital platforms, including Amazon, Noisetrade and iTunes. Check for more info.
