Anthony Saunders is a Virginia based United States Air Force Sergeant, single father of two sons, active community volunteer and emerging vocalist with a smooth voice and increasing fire to share the hope of Christ. The budding singer decided to step into Gospel music as a professional vocalist and is using the name A’Saun which originates from his name interpretations: ‘Anthony’ – highly praiseworthy and ‘Saunders’ – defender of men. A’Saun has been under the artist development helm of Stellar Award winning singer, songwriter and international artist and choir director Earl Bynum.
“I want to be able to bridge the gap between Gospel, R&B and Contemporary Christian music while staying true to what God has assigned me to do,” says A’Saun. “My desire is to reach everyone where they are, helping bring comfort and peace to whatever situation they may be dealing with. I love to minister to people in song and Lrae Entertainment has afforded me this great opportunity and for that I am forever grateful.”
For years A’Saun has been an active singer with his home church choir the Stellar Award winningMount Unity Choir (Chesapeake, VA) directed by Minister Earl Bynum. A’Saun is now an artist signed to Bynum’s independent label Lrae Entertainment and has released his first single “Amazed”.
“My song ‘Amazed’ was written from many personal experiences in life,” A’Saun transparently shares. “I was married and went through a horrible divorce and afterwards become extremely ill. But, through much prayer and the help of my friends and family, God healed me.” He continues, “My eldest son was diagnosed with Autism, but has progressed remarkably through the healing power of Jehovah. The enemy has tried throwing all types of situations at me, but I am still here and witnessing about God’s goodness and favor.”
A’Saun serves his local community by volunteering for several organizations like Meals On Wheels and also travels international singing and ministering with Earl Bynum Ministries. One can be ‘amazed’ at A’Saun’s ability to successfully merge his service to the military, passion to minister to people and his selfless love and dedication for his family. With his “Amazed” single and his newly established status as an international gospel artist, A’Saun is a willing vessel who is building an imprint for what the future of Gospel music and ministry can sound like and look like. A’Saun is an example of how God can fuse every part of one’s life for the good of His Kingdom.
