Gospel music mainstay Myron Butler’s new album, On Purpose, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart this week. He’s been working nonstop to share his new music (and its message) with the world, but he was gracious enough to chat with us and give us 5 answers to 5 questions.
Check out what Myron Butler had to say about the new album and how he overcame his fears to walk in his purpose!
1. What is the heartbeat behind your new album, On Purpose?
When I think of “purpose,” I think of something’s “intended use”– what is the use of something? For us, it’s a question of why we are here on Earth. And purpose is something that is on a lot of people’s minds. But they look abstractly as opposed to taking time to commit it to God and saying, “show me what it is for me, not what I see others do. What is the reason You designed me? Me, specifically.”
Some people say “on purpose” to mean “intentionally,” and I think we should live intentionally. But also, when you realize your purpose, everything you do should be centered on that purpose.
2. What song speaks to you most on this new project?
It would have to be “You Call Me,” which is actually only available on the deluxe edition on iTunes. The premise is in its lyrics– God calls us what we shall be until we become what He calls us. It’s a song that’s personal to my journey and close to my heart.
