“I Found a Friend” is the newly released single from NC minister and musician, John Joyner. Joyner’s silvery tenor lends itself to ballads, which he demonstrates in a pair of verses describing discouragement, dismay, and loneliness. “When my friends, they turn their backs on me,” he sings, “I can say I have a best friend, and He’s all I need.”
“I Found a Friend” is produced by Brian Foster. Joyner leads Order My Steps Outreach Ministry in Oxford, NC.
