David has even made fans of President Barak Obama and the First Lady. A longtime collaborator with multi-Grammy Award winner India.Arie, David’s collaboration with the singer/songwriter, “There’s Hope,” was tapped as one of Obama’s campaign songs and the First Lady has admitted to adding David’s songs to her own personally curated playlists.

The PowerFUL Now is about the NOW being the most important moment at all times. I write every album as if it could be my last, so I don’t hold back on any feeling or idea,” shares David. “There is no ‘I’ll get to that later.’ There’s also no burden of trying to link with what I’ve done in the past. This time is always intended to be the best time.”

“In this time when so many artists and recordings sound similar, Anthony David is a very special artist with his own unique voice as a singer and songwriter who has built an audience from the grassroots up with integrity and quality,” states Shanachie’s General Manager Randall Grass. We are very pleased to be bringing out his new creations!”

“‘Beautiful Problem’ represents life and the trials you can
go through that ultimately make you better and stronger. It’s really
open to interpretation for people to relate to in several ways.”- Anthony David

Citing Lorraine Hansbury and Bill Withers as two of his greatest creative influences, Anthony David makes it his mission to sing songs that reflect the times. “I write mostly for different scenarios I find myself in,” explains the worldly musician who spent a stint in the military. “Anything from a song that would sound good as you’re walking around TJ Maxx, to something that might inspire somebody in a dark moment or out at a club or lounge.” The PowerFUL Now highlights David’s keen compositional skills and undeniably powerful chops. They dynamic artist reunites with Nashville based Grammy and Emmy winning songwriter Shannon Sanders (John Legend, Eric Benet and Leela James). The duo collaborated on David’s 2011 CD As Above So Below. Also showcased on The PowerFUL Now is writer and producer Eddie “Gypsy” Stokes. “He’s the one who told me that I should be an artist,” confides Anthony. “He did my first demo, and gave me my first lessons in production. We reconnected and he executive produced the album.” Fellow Atlanta based singer Carmen Rogers reunites with David as well. The duo made magic on the 2015 collaboration “Charge.” David also welcomes singer/songwriter Mylah and up-and-coming artist out of DC, Reesa Renee, on his latest and fifth solo effort.
