Half Mile Home

via Halles:

Terence “Buttons” BurtonDarryl “Deaken” Brownlee and Todd Burton of Ohio-based Urban contemporary gospel trio Half Mile Home releases their new radio single “This Far” today on all digital outlets (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/this-far-single/id1264045958). The single continues to gain traction at Gospel radio within the Top 40 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart.

“This Far” was birthed from a tragic experience group member Todd Burton experienced when his son was fatally shot in the head last year. “Imagine getting a phone call at 5:37am that my oldest son Trey was shot in the head,” states Burton. “I sat beside the bed and started praying and thanking God in advance as I headed to the hospital with my wife. Once I arrived I was told that I couldn’t see my son at the moment by the nurses.” “Our family was told by the doctor that my son has minor brain damage but he’ll be back to normal in 3 months. The tears started falling as I looked at him laying there knowing that if God didn’t spare him this would’ve been my last time to see him alive. BUT GOD said I didn’t bring y’all “This Far” to leave you.”
