Gene Hoskins serves joy and an affirming message of hope with, “Make It With Jesus.” Replete with gleeful vocals and dazzling horn-driven accompaniment, the churchy single is featured on his full-length project Homecoming – Deluxe Edition (released via Shanachie Entertainment on October 29, 2021).
“I woke up one morning feeling overwhelmed and stressed myself,” says Hoskins about the inspiration for “Make It With Jesus.” “I decided to take my own advice and use the things that make me happy in order to combat my own stress. I started singing and thinking about Jesus. I hummed this tune and stuck with me all day. With ‘Make It With Jesus,’ my hope is that the relief I felt after singing it translates to others and it can be a healing tool in some way.”

In addition to his music ministry, Hoskins is a psychologist and owner of Peace of Mind Psychological Services, PLLC in Durham, NC.
