Purpose With The Debut Of His Brand New
Single, “The Cross”
Actor Secures Extra/Supporting Role In TV’s “House Of Cards” With Veteran
Actors Cicely Tyson & Kevin Spacey
(Washington, DC) – May 23, 2016 – Sometimes our
greatest pains are the pathway to our greatest victories.
Mack Jones knows this fact to be true. The gifted Gospel
singer and songwriter thought he was on the way to
success when suddenly the rug was pulled out from
under him. The life-changing experience set the scene
for the song, “The Cross”. The inspirational track, a
smooth yet uplifting ballad, is the first release from the
artist. Produced by Richard T. Davis of R2D Music and
mixed and mastered by Brad Baerwald of Studio 51, the
uplifting single is currently available on iTunes, CDBaby
The song’s message centers around Calvary. “The Lord
helped me to understand that in spite of my failings and
my shortcomings – in spite of all my imperfections, I
still exemplify ‘The Cross’”, he shares. “We are all
examples, whether we want to be or not,” Mack shares. “That’s why it’s so important that the decisions
we make behind closed doors match the life we live in front of people,” he says.
The song came to be at a very tough period in Mack’s life. “I wrote the song in 2009 on the day I left
Atlanta,” recounts Mack. “I had gone through a very traumatic experience; my hopes were dashed that
day. As my family drove me away from the city, I had a pen and paper and the song began to come to me.
On that day, Father’s Day in 2009, a lot changed for me, but God was there. I was determined that the
situation would not break me and it didn’t. My desire is to encourage others going through trials; our Lord
suffered and was exalted in the end. I want others to know they will be too”.
The track is from Mack’s forthcoming debut, #theevolutionofmackjones, scheduled to release this year.
The fact that he is releasing an album is no surprise to anyone who knows him. He literally has music in
his blood. Family members formed the group, The Jones Brothers, and his mother and her sisters
recorded. Mack himself plays several instruments including the piano, drums, violin and trumpet. Music
wasn’t the only thing that was passed down; ministry was as well. His father, Rev. Willie Lee Jones.
