Eddie Hedges will be in Cincinnati on Sunday, July 24 at Grace Chapel in Mason, where he will sing with the Grace Chapel Worship Team at the 10 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services.
Hedges will join friend and former bandmate, Tony Clark, also a former Blessid Union of Souls band member, who regularly serves on the worship team at Grace Chapel.
In addition to his live appearances, Eddie Hedges has recently spent time in the studio working on songs for his third solo album, Faith Like a Child, which will be available soon. Faith Like a Child is a follow up to Hedges previous solo efforts, Sonday (2006) and Something to Believe In (2004).
“The title for ‘Faith Like a Child’ came from what it says in the Bible about having faith like a child. As we get older, we get caught up in the stress of the world and we need to get back to that. Children don’t stress like that. We can’t control everything. We need to learn to get off the throne, put God back on it and trust that He is control.”
Ultimately, Hedges said the theme of the album focuses on standing in faith and putting our trust in God.
“I want people to understand what faith like a child really means. Kids don’t worry about things like money, power or job security. They don’t stress and they just trust that everything is going to be okay. As adults, we need to be more like that,” he continued.
Hedges will sing some of the new songs from Faith Like A Child on Sunday morning, including “I Thank You Jesus,” and “You Saved Me.” He will also sing crowd favorites like “Live Again” and “Sonday” from his earlier solo releases.
Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. Hedges began singing and playing drums in church at age 13. It was there that he gave his life to Christ.
Throughout his longstanding career, he has toured with many notable acts, including Bel Biv Devoe, Sheila E., Johnny Gill and others. In the mid-1990’s Hedges became a founding member and drummer of the multi-platinum band Blessid Union of Souls. After close to a decade of touring the world, the group released four albums, which were driven by a string of hit singles, including “I Believe,” “I Wanna Be There,” “Light in Your Eyes,” “Let Me Be The One” and “Hey Leonardo,” Hedges left Blessid Union of Souls in 2003.
