Redemptive Track Available Via All Digital Retail And Streaming Platforms April 10, 2020
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Veteran indie recording artist, Charles Parker (CMP Records, Baltimore, MD), is slated to release his fourth single, titled “When Jesus Calls,”* via all digital outlets and streaming platforms (Amazon/Apple Music/iTunes/ Pandora/Spotify/Tidal) on Friday, April 10, 2020.

Co-produced alongside Frank Starchak, the self-penned emotionally heart-felt and uplifting redemptive track beams with big instrumental builds, spotlighting piano, cello, and string quartets reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, 70s rock guitar licks (a la Guns N Roses and Super Tramp) and choir vocals bold enough to raise the roof off a church. Working alongside award-winning musician Brent Mason, Parker lent his talents to perform on guitar and piano.
“So many friends I see in such despair They're reaching out for hopes and prayers Although I'd like to lend a helping hand I just don't think that I could change his plan Live for today, we’re gone tomorrow Let's make happiness and no more sorrow”
"The idea behind 'When Jesus Calls' was inspired by friends and family asking for prayers—in sickness and death—through their social media posts,” said the mainstay songwriter and performer Charles Parker. "I wrote from a songwriter’s perspective that Jesus needed me with him so that I could help share his message. The storyline is to say that if we answer his call, maybe we can make all of the world believe in his plan."
Set apart as distinct and contrast from anything the artist has written, “When Jesus Calls” follows Parker’s recent series of releases, “Love Is Us” and “Say Goodbye,” which ranked #73 and #86 on the charts, respectively. Parker also released the title track from his debut album BRING BACK THE SUN which became the first of the artist’s discography to reach radio charting at #81 on the MusicRow Country Music Breakout Chart.
