His work ethic keeps him on Billboard Top Gospel sales chart with his EP RESERVED which debuted at #10 and keeps building his career and presence as a “New, Now, Next Generation” artist with a bright future.
Robert released his hit single “Happy” in 2016 and his debut EPRESERVED in 2017. The “Happy” official music video followed and is playing on Christian and Gospel video shows around the country now.
