What You Should Know
To celebrate the life and homegoing of his father, David Billingsley II, who passed away earlier this month, David Billingsley III dedicated his sophomore studio album to his father. Feeling tasked with bringing more healing to the world through his music, Billingsley III recorded an intimate visual to his upcoming “House of David Volume 1” album release.
“House of David Volume 1” will be available for total download and streaming on July 31st. And, like his first album “Hymns from Grandma’s Livingroom” reached the mainstream charts, I’m expecting even greater success on the American iTunes Top 40 Jazz Albums Chart for the new album. Luckily, three of the 17 tracks on “House of David Volume 1” are available for streaming right now. Those tracks are 1, 2, and 5: ‘House of David,’ ‘For Dad,’ and ‘For Mom.’
What It Sounds Like
In a statement to Devine Jamz Gospel Network, he made clear:
“I put this music out with hopes and intentions that people would listen in cars, during study time, while immersed in nature, or when they need time to pray, reflect or just be.”
In this music video, many family and friends speak to the amazingly memorable character Billingsley’s father had, and their remarks were just as loving — suitable for a light so bright. What makes this visual so compelling, so raw, and so heartfelt, is the common thread of love and respect family and friends have for David Billingsley II, subtly passing the healing torch to Billingsley III.
