People know Lattimore because of his hit ballads, but a lot of folks don’t know that it was his Christian faith that fueled his passion for music.
“I prayed and I said, ‘Lord, I have achieved my natural goals,'” he recalled to CBN.
So, I was like, what is the real legacy of it all,” he continued. “And [God] spoke back to me, to the hearts of women, to the minds of men, encouraging them in love, and said I am going to say this every time I get on stage. I am going to let people know this is my purpose.”
Prayer and pursing God’s purpose have long been part of this R&B singer’s life, even before his signature ballad “For You” released in 1996, and his first solo project “From the Soul of Man.”
“At 8 years old, I heard about Jesus and I learned my first scripture, Luke 10:19, ‘Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you,'” Lattimore said. “For me, that was a great scripture as a kid.”
Lattimore treasured that scripture in his heart and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour at age 8.
