This album is the culmination of a life-long dream, and the fulfillment of God’s promise to give us the desires of our hearts.
My musical career began at the age of 12 when I sang my first solo in our church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over the years I have sung in hundreds of churches from coast to coast and border to border in our great nation, and beyond. I’ve been privileged to sing, record, and travel with a number of different group, but the dream of recording my own solo album has always been with me.
Recently the Lord has been teaching me some very important lessons, and it is my sincere desire to share them with you in this album. God gave me the title song, “Praise the Name,” during the critical days of my father’s illness and passing last year. How grateful I am that in those dark days the Lord helped me to understand the key to life in all its fulness… Praise the Name of Jesus” in every situation.
It is with thanks giving to God and loving memory of my father, an evangelist and pastor for over 45 years, that I prayerfully dedicate this album and its message. Join me as you listen and Praise the Name of Jesus.
Released in 1975 by WORD Records. Album by Skip Ross with the Dave Williams orchestra & chorus.
