J. Grant Thompson (2014)
Available at iTunes
By the time J. Grant Thompson was six, he was singing and playing drums for the children’s choir at his church. His musical gifting was evident. Years later, his musicianship evolved to include piano, writing, music production. The evolution continues with the recent release of his debut single, “The Greater.”
Just as evident as J. Grant’s musical gifting is his heartfelt vertical worship through lyrical prayer: “Open my eyes to see greater…The Greater is You!” Flowing piano arpeggios and uncomplicated background harmonies usher the urban contemporary worship track to its climactical emphasis–“You are Greater!”
J. Grant is a native of Washington, DC and serves as a worship leader at Church of the Rock Praise Factory, founded and pastored by his parents, Pastor G. Ainsworth and Lady Margaret Thompson.
