David also recorded, “Back on Top Again,” by Ronny Hinson, and all of these songs made the charts. But David doesn’t just depend on charting success to define him. He notes, “I love singing, but most of all I love singing about my Savior and preaching the Gospel. I am so excited to see what God has in store for this ministry, and the opportunities he has placed in my life to work with people who love to serve Him just the same.” His album, “Revived” can be downloaded at www.itunes.com.
