Nashville, TN — Adrian J. Wells, widely known as “AJ” Wells, realized that he was called to a ministry life at a young age. AJ made his mark on the music industry at 16yrs old as a featured vocalist on the Bishop Joseph W. Walker, III Presents Judah Generation album leading “The Blood Medley”. Since then, AJ has been writing and recording music and serving God as a worship leader and an ordained minister.
In 2012, AJ recorded his first album SET ASIDE, with Endless Worship of San Diego. During that time, he was appointed the first African American Director of Worship and Arts for the California Southern Baptist Convention.
AJ has also become a sought-after background vocalist for many Christian and mainstream artists and has lead music ministries in Nashville, Dallas, and Memphis. AJ is an anointed creative and songwriter and has written an all-new project and independently released the first single called “King”.
The spirited praise anthem was recorded live and features vocalist Shauna Hughes. “King came from a moment of devotion and perplexity,” AJ states. “I began to wonder where the majestic and big sounds of Gospel and soul music went. Artistry felt common, and songs sung in our churches felt simple. I felt compelled to write the super attributes of God and hail him as KING.”
AJ continues, “If I could combine and describe this song’s meaning and feel in one word, it would be ‘Majestic’. This song is majestic in its message and in its musicality.”
“King” is available on all digital music outlets and has a companion music video on YouTube.
The “King” official music video directors are Dante and Tonya Bounds of Visual Solutions. The colorful video showcases AJ, his dynamic background singers, and Hughes in a vividly royal and lively setting as they sing, dance for, and worship the King!”King” is the precursor to AJ’s forthcoming GOD SONGS album set to release in 2022.
His GOD SONGS album derives from Zephaniah 3:17, reminding us that God is a mighty warrior who saves, rejoices, and sings over us. Like “King”, each song on the album stems from moments of worship where spontaneous songs of the Lord are birthed.
