Follow Your Call
Follow Your Call
Michael Milton's second studio album, Follow Your Call offers refreshingly personal, soul-searching honesty and beautiful spiritual uplift for these uncertain times. On his latest heartfelt CD, Michael Milton inspires listeners everywhere to Follow Your Call and find the peace that lies even in the midst of life’s most difficult challenges and trials. More than simply a compelling follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2005 debut He Shall Restore, the renowned pastor, author and singer/songwriter, who in 2007 responded to his own call to become president at RTS/Charlotte sees his new recording as a musical extension of his lifelong ministry whose impact reaches beyond his fellow Christians.
Based on Milton’s popularity performing original songs music after his sermons at churches and gatherings throughout the South, legendary Christian pop singer/songwriter Michael Card (“El Shaddai”) has called Milton “a shepherd leading his flock with song.” Drawing upon his love of folk, bluegrass and the classic 70’s California country-pop sound, the multi-talented composer and performer offers hope, healing and joy in a way that people of any spiritual tradition (or even those without one) will find compelling. More than simply a “Christian recording artist,” Milton is an inspirational musical force that transcends all musical and religious boundaries.
Key songs on Follow Your Call that come from what Milton calls “an overflow of my own experience of God’s wonder and grace” are the gentle and lilting “Pastor’s Wife,” a tribute to his wife Mae and the unique strength she offers him from behind the scenes; “Genealogy,” which weaves together thoughts on the deep importance of “home” and “adoption” with the home and family in the family of God; and the dynamic, bluegrass flavored “Cattle On A Thousand Hills,” which draws a metaphor from Psalm 50. The buoyant, anthemic “Christ Is Risen” incorporates some world music flavors to represent the global mission of sharing the gospel message. In all of these songs Milton gently and soothingly invites listeners into a journey with the possibility to “follow your [own] call.”
