While the album title may refer to Henderson''s spiritual journey, it is also an apt evaluation of his artistic maturation. Critics who have followed his career are already saying it is Donny''s best musical offering to date.
"The record doesn''t necessarily have an overall theme, but if I had to sum up the feelings that I wanted to express, I would have to say it describes my own personal journey of faith ," says Henderson reflectively. "There are a lot of questions that I still want answers to and things that I don''t understand, but I believe that the Word of God is true and that is what I will continue to put my faith and trust in. This record documents some of the questions that I have asked God along the way as well as some of the answers that I have found during my search."
As a solo artist, Donny is passionate about using his gifts to minister to the local church. His music speaks to all ages and his presentation is fresh and innovative.
