Justin Bieber releases surprise gospel EP featuring Pastor Judah Smith By Jeannie Law for Christian Post
Superstar Justin Bieber surprised his millions of supporters on Easter Sunday by releasing his first-ever gospel EP titled Freedom.
The pop star took to social media on the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ to announce the release.
He shared the word “Freedom” typed on an iPhone notes app, which happens to be the EP’s cover. The caption reads, “Freedom on all platforms.”
The six songs on the record include collaborations with artists like Beam, Brandon Love, Chandler Moore, Pink Sweats, Tori Kelly and Lauren Walters. Each song features a strong Christian message, including one track that features mild language.
Another unique guest on the album is Bieber’s pastor and long-time mentor, Judah Smith, leader of ChurcHome.
“Who is this Jesus?” Smith questions on the album. He recounts the life of Jesus. The question is presented from the perspective of a skeptic. It ends ultimately with Smith saying, if all that is historically known about Jesus is true, then “there is nobody like Jesus.”
In another song, Smith assures listeners from the perspective of God that all of their concerns will “be alright.”
