Biography

Los Angeles, CA - Christian rocker Anthony Tate’s new single
"Addiction” is sinking its hooks into listeners and pulling them into
the album from whence it springs, “Around the Throne.”
"Addiction" is a captivating song, making one’s attention its
prisoner.
As such, "Addiction” is the door, unlocked and freely to be opened by
music fans everywhere. As with the whole album, Tate’s chosen single
is an ecumenical song, encompassing a vast set of inspirations and
issuing the siren’s song to fans of many genres. His pull is
irresistible; orbit close enough and the relativity of time will warp
in the gravity field of this talented songwriter’s songwriting.
Tate has been performing for much of his life, semi-professionally
for approaching two decades. Since 1990, he has often taken the stage,
either in the capacity of singer or guitarist or both. He first
toured with the band Daybreak and from there he sang with a number of
vocal groups, including Revival and Voice. He has shared the stage
with such vocally oriented groups as Acapella, AVB and GH. He has also
performed with Allison Krause.
"In 2000, Voice broke up and I set off on a solo adventure,” says
Tate. He recorded his first single, "One More Time” in 2002, which was
produced by Badger Records in Nashville. Now, he looks back and
reflects on a musical legacy that has found him rubbing shoulders in
marquee space with top Christian artists. His most remembered moment,
he says, was when the group Selah asked him to join them on the stage
for "Song of Salvation"
He has proven his public faith through powerful means in his private
life. At the age of 23, he was diagnosed with a kidney problem, which
at age 28 was recognized as end-stage renal failure. "I refused to
become its victim,” he says, despite how hard it was to get up and
face each day. "But, having strong faith and knowing that someone else
was ultimately in control, I drew the strength to be able to give hope
to others and to help them find the peace and love that I now try to
convey through my lyrics and the songs of my heart.” In October 2004,
his kidney transplant came through and confirmed his faith. He now
lives dialysis-free.

Lyrics

around the throne

Written By: anthonytate

Many times I’ve wondered
Many times I’ve cried
Many times I’ve spoke out
Many times I’ve denied
Sometimes I wish I could speak
Only things of you
But the humanistic side of me
Runs away from the truth
I’d like to speak to everyone
And tell them about you
And in the end you’ll call me friend
Because I stood up for the truth

One day singing Holy One
Around the throne
Singing praise to the great I am
I will sing your name
Sing to the king
And give you glory lord
Holy one
Around the throne
Singing praise to the great I am
The great I am

But this time you see
I didn’t stand up for you
I fell away
Felt disgrace
And fell back from your truth
You said your word lives with in my heart
And you live within my mind
Then why lord do I seek for things
That’s not of your kind
I’ve felt pain and aguish
I’ve your felt joy through stress
I’ve looked into heavens eyes
To the thing that is the best

Singing Holy one
Around your throne
Sing praise to great I am
Holy one
Around your throne
Sing praise to the great I am

(solo)

I can’t understand
What’s going on inside
How one day I’ll stand up for truth
And only I’ll deny
One day I will stand before you
And give account of my words
Although I will be guilty
Of the times I didn’t hear your voice
And the times I didn’t obey you
And the times I sinned a lot
And the times I’ve stood up for you
And claimed the name of GOD
It’s your blood that saves me from my sin
And you’ll forgive every one
You said if I confess you’ll forget
And give me
You’ll give me a grace
That will save me…

Chorus

3x

The great I am

I Believe

Written By: anthony tate

I believe you are the son of man
And I believe you’ll take me home
Well I believe you’re coming back again
This is what I’ll tell you I do believe

Faith is the evidence of things unseen
I’ve seen your power I do believe
Washed in the water, saved by blood
Cleansed by your amazing flood
See you there beginning to give us life
Thru your sons own sacrifice
We will never die if we believe
Being saved, forgiven, baptized, redeemed.

I believe you are the son of man
And I believe you’ll take me home
Well I believe you’re coming back again
This is what I’ll tell you I do believe

I believe, believe it (4 xs)

Do you believe?

Do you believe he is the son of man?
Do you believe he is coming back again?
Do you believe Jesus the son of man?
Do you believe in his love?

Do you believe his water will give you life?
Do you believe the spirit that came through Christ?
Do you believe in divine sacrifice?
Do you believe in his love?

Serendiptity

Written By: anthonytate

Love like a happy accident
You seem almost heaven sent
I can’t explain or comprehend…

Feelings overtaking me
True love real life fantasy
So much more than seems…

Pre chorus:

Don’t wake me from this dream…
You don’t know what you mean to me.

Chorus:

I believe in serendipity
I believe in what you do to me
And I believe it’s something real
Please don’t doubt the way I feel
Simply
Serendipity

Was it back in 89
You first put your hand in mine
We talked for hour’s way back then…

Now many years gone by
Your hand still embracing mine
Hope you know just how I feel…

Chorus:
I believe in serendipity
I believe in what you do to me
And I believe it’s something real
I believe in serendipity
I believe in what you do to me
And I believe it’s more than real

Another time, another place
We would laugh
And we’d kiss face to face
I wish I’d taken your hand in mine
And let you know how I felt that time.

It’s a love that never ends.
Oh a love that never fades
A love that’s never ashamed.
Oh it’s a love that never ends.
A love for you and me
It’s a love not found in history.

The story tells of a thousand lies
Of the men that left the pain inside
How you stayed and how your love did hide
I wish I could have been there that lonely night.

Oh a love that never fades
It’s a love that’s never ashamed.
My love is never ashamed
Oh it’s the love that never fades.
A love that’s never ashamed
My love is never ashamed.

Stories tell me of this one pure night
How our wounds heal our hearts inside
We both struggled but we both did fight
Serendipity changed this heart of mine.

Oh this love never fades
Oh it’s a love for you and me
A love not found in history
Love never fades
Oh it’s a love for you and me
It’s a love how it’s meant to be
It’s a love for you and me
It’s a love not found in history

Love never fades
It’s a love that’s never ashamed
It’s the love that never fades
Love that’s never ashamed
