“He Didn’t Give Up On Me”
Curtis Branson
From the Stew Records CD I Still Have a Praise (2008)

“He Didn’t Give Up on Me” is a gratefully rendered acknowledgement of God’s commitment to, and faith in, His people when they face tribulation and even after they “mess up, gave up the right for the wrong.” Chicagoan Curtis Branson delivers this lovely and inspirational gospel ballad with a humble cry lodged somewhere in the back of his throat.

The simple and honest message, and its presentation by Branson, whose voice combines the huskiness of Michael McDonald and the plaintive shout of Marvin Sapp, follows in the footfalls of Sapp’s 2008 smash, “Never Would Have Made It” in its emotional intensity.

Branson is an experienced music minister who has served as a director of the Combined Choir at Bishop Larry D. Trotter’s Sweet Holy Spirit Church on Chicago’s southeast side. He has recorded with Chicago-based but nationally-known artists such as VaShawn Mitchell and William Steward III & V.O.P.M., and performed with Angela Spivey and the Voices of Victory. I Still Have a Praise is his second CD. - Bob Marovich

"Bishop Larry Trotter & Curtis Branson on "Tell The Devil I'm Back""

The material is strong throughout, with the title cut an obvious draw among the more traditional offerings. With its snazzy title, church-stompy pace and Woolfalk’s sizzling electric guitar, it easily sears the lead vocals of both Bishop Trotter and Curtis Branson who declare the message of our victory in Jesus Christ over the devil and all his works. No wonder there’s a reprise -


Still working on that hot first release.



Branson released his Debut album “I Still Have A Praise” this fall, 2008.

After years of mastering the piano, Branson was offered his first job as a musician at the First Corinthians M.B. Church with the youth choir. Branson would then move on to become the Minister of Music at the Greater Star MB Church. A couple years had past and Branson decided that his song ministry should reach beyond the wall of the church buildings and in September of 1996 at True Macedonia MB Church is where he gave birth to Total Praise Ministries (Community Choir).

A member and director for Sweet Holy Spirit Church combined choir under the leadership of Bishop Larry D. Trotter.
