Kevin Jones is a critically acclaimed touring singer / songwriter / worship leader with multiple releases available on iTunes and is a new artist in the People & Songs Community. He is currently working on his 1st full length record set to release in 2020!
Over the past decade Kevin has worked with many great songwriters/artists. He helped write "Once For All" that was recorded and released by Shane & Shane, as well as has worked with them on their worship leading training website called "Worship Initiative". He also helped co-write w/ Shane Barnard on “Holy, Holy, Holy (We Bow Before Thee)” which is on their Hymns (Vol. 1) record that released in the fall of 2018. Kevin has been featured on Jimmy Needham's Hymns record where he sang on "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and was also featured on Charity Gayle's record where he sang on the title track "Lord You Are My Song". Kevin also helped write on 3 songs - ‘Victory Is The Lord’s” - “I Will Rejoice” - “Let Revival Come (Revive Me)” that are on Joshua Sherman’s record (Tribe-2-Kingdom: I Will Rejoice) which debuted at #5 on the Christian & Gospel iTunes charts.
Kevin is a true son to The Father. Their's is a beautiful relationship that was forged in a very difficult crucible which served to make him the grateful servant of the Lord that he is today. As a boy, In August 1995, Kevin's mom (Linda) sadly lost her 3-year bout with cancer and she went home to be with her Savior. A few months after her passing, his dad (Chris) sat him down and painted a simple picture of the Gospel - letting him know who he was as a sinner, BUT who Jesus IS as his SAVIOR (Ephesians 2). At 8 years old, through his mom’s death, Kevin surrendered his life to Christ.
Kevin’s eagerness and obedience to follow Jesus has led him all across the US and to different countries, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Russia, Mexico, Barbados and Spain. He has had the opportunity to partner up with OneLife and International World Changers, both branches of the International Mission Board, serving missionary field reps. One of the songs Kevin co-wrote with fellow People & Songs brother David Gentiles titled "I Need Jesus" was used as a prayer by David Platt over all nations at the International Mission Board (IMB) headquarters.
One of Kevin's favorite times of the year is when he gets to serve at The Emerging Sound camp. He loves to pour into the younger generation and help point them to Jesus in their songwriting. Kevin helped write 2 songs on The Emerging Sound (Vol. 3) album, including "Let Revival Come (Revive Me)" as well as the title track "Never Look Away". On YouTube, “Let Revival Come (Revive Me)” has had over 2 million views and was nominated for a GMA Dove Award in 2018. Another project Kevin wrote and is featured on is the The Emerging Sound (Vol. 4). He wrote and was featured w/ a fellow People & Song’s sister, May Angeles, on the track titled - “Never Wanna Go Back”. He wrote on 3 songs on the not-yet-released The Emerging Sound (Vol.5) which is set to release the summer of 2019. One of the songs is titled “God’s Gonna Get My Praise” which was viewed over 100k times on Facebook within the first 24 hours of it’s release.
Racial reconciliation is another area of Kevin's heart that he is passionate about. He loves seeing people of all backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities coming together to worship the One true King. He believes in cultural harmony through music, ultimately believing that music is a great “bridge” to help sever division within the church.
Kevin has faithfully used his talents and gifts to share Jesus’ gospel message to diverse people groups. His music is a delightful fusion of Soul, Pop and R&B. His unique style has easily extended beyond the confines of genre, denomination, generation and ethnicity with the wide-reaching, cross-cultural, unifying love of God. Kevin is a proud Texan and and an even-prouder husband who had the privilege of marrying his best friend and joy of his life, Christina. He and his wife currently live in Colorado Springs, Colorado where Kevin is on staff at Calvary Worship Center as the Worship Director.
