Singer Patrick Dopson has become one of Gospel music’s most eminent and anointed voices. He has established himself as a prolific songwriter crossing cultural and denominational boundaries through musical releases like his OPEN THE HEAVENS(2012) album which included the Billboard hit “Keep Me”. The Stellar Award winner and Dove Award-nominated artist and creative hasn’t released new music since his Billboard Chart-topping radio single “God Is” in 2014. Patrick returns from a 5-year hiatus of recording with a more fervent zeal for life and ministry, and a new single and personal declaration “God Is Able”.
“God Is Able” is more than a new song for Patrick. After a few years of a series of tumultuous circumstances, he believed God was, once again, calling him to release music from his place of brokenness to declare with conviction that GOD IS ABLE.
“It’s been 5 years since I last released music. In that 5 years, I experienced some major lows including a bout with kidney cancer that could have taken my life, a delayed adoption of our second son and the unexpected loss of my hero and musical mentor, my Mother,” Patrick shares. “These events caused me to ask – could my worship go deeper than my pain?”

“In my new single, I felt like David as he began to encourage himself in the Lord,” says Patrick. “I found myself in tears as I began to write my personal encouragement that, regardless of the outcome or my expectations, I realized HE has the final say.”
He continues, “There’s a line in the verse that says ‘your faith gets stronger when it’s built in the dark’. That’s truly been lived out first hand. I hope to encourage others to keep pressing, keep believing, keep serving, keep knocking, keep seeking, and keep praying! At times, we all throw our hands up either to quit or to surrender. Hopefully, listeners will be persuaded to simply surrender to God and declare with confidence GOD IS ABLE!”
“God Is Able” is impacting Gospel radio now and is available on all digital music outlets. Fans can expect a new album from Patrick in 2020.
