Biography

Rashod Holmes

Rashod Holmes, It may not be a name you’ve encountered before but that doesn’t change anything about the anointing that God has placed upon his life. Musical power like this isn’t something to be learned – it’s something innate, something you’re born with. And Holmes boasts some of the richest musical genes around.

Central Texas’s rising Christian Pop/R&B artist will be releasing his full length album “A City Redeemed” in Fall 2011. His deep-rooted Christian background and undeniable faith is what helped him create this amazing, God-centered album.

Angie, Louisiana is the original home of Rashod prior to relocating due to hurricane Katrina. He lost a many material possession in the storm but was able to cling on to his deep seeded faith in Jesus Christ, the greatest possession of all. “I know the music alone will not save their lives, but when people stop and listen to my heart through this music and lyrical content which is rooted in the word of God, I pray that they are moved to the point of opening their hearts to hear and to receive what the Lord would speak.” This is just what Rashod’s music will do to its many listeners. It’s a chance to fully open people’s minds up to the truth of God’s love and saving power.

Passion and Soul

Music is about passion and soul, Holmes never fails to deliver when ministering to souls for the kingdom. There’s no doubting music’s ability to bring equanimity and serenity into the heart of even the most anxious person. “Music is the peace within me,” says Holmes. And his music is the peace within listeners. There’s no escaping the warm, welcoming tones of Holmes’ top shelf soulful compositions.

The Artist at Work

Holmes is a Minister of Music at Dominion Life Chapel in Belton, TX. His experience with music has taken him to perform at many venues across the US, even Walt Disney World. Rashod has also taken part in a number of collaborations with many respectable artists such as TheLankanKid, Luis T and In His Presence Dance Academy. He has announced the release of a new album this fall titled "A City Redeemed" featuring the new single "Stop and Praise!", “All Said and Done”, “So Far Away” and more!

Lyrics

One Day

Written By: Rashod Holmes

I found a resting place,
Where the pain is all erased
It’s In You

When I’m weak it makes me strong
Gives me strength to carry on
Through You

Bridge

I wouldn’t trade you for the world
And for those that haven’t heard
You are what is, and is to come
Be ready for him

When it’s all is said and done
You’d rather be the one
Who served his name, praised and prayed
For all of your days

Chorus
One day (with you Lord)
One Day (in you Lord)
I rather spend one day, (with you Lord)
Than thousand elsewhere

One day, (with you Lord)
One Day (in you Lord)
I rather spend one day (with you Lord)
Than a thousand elsewhere

We may have many things
But only joy that he brings
Will last

When you’re going through a storm
I suggest you remain calm
Cause it shall pass

All Said and Done

Written By: Rashod Holmes

The time has come now, to decide whom you will choose
The line has been drawn now; only one side is the truth
Salvation by his grace is the only way,
that you will know your safe,
where you soul remains for always

(Pre Chorus)
Soon the king will arrive on a cloud in the sky, at the trumpets call
He’ll retrieve his bride as they meet in the sky, those who gave their soul

(Chorus)
To the God who sent his son to die way back on Calvary
He washed away your sins so decide on your eternity
Where ya gonna go when its all said and done eh
You gotta go when it’s all said and done
You better know, if you don’t, where you’ll go

Faith is the substance of the things that hope for
The evidence of the things we cannot see
For God gave his only son, that whomsoever believe
In him will certainly receive, life in eternity with the king of kings

(Pre Chorus)
Soon the king will arrive on a cloud in the sky, at the trumpets call
He’ll retrieve his bride as they meet in the sky, those who gave their soul

(Chorus)
To the God who sent his son to die way back on Calvary
He has washed away your sins so decide where’s your eternity
Where ya gonna go when its all said and done eh
You gotta go when it’s all said and done
You better know, if you don’t, where you’ll go

Where ya gonna go when its all said and done eh
You gotta go when it’s all said and done
You better know, if you don’t, where you’ll go
(Pre Chorus)
Soon the king will arrive on a cloud in the sky, at the trumpets call
He’ll retrieve his bride as they meet in the sky, those who gave their soul

(Chorus)
To the God who sent his son to die way back on Calvary
He washed away your sins so decide where’s your eternity
Where ya gonna go when its all said and done eh
You gotta go when it’s all said and done
You better know, if you don’t, where you’ll go

Where ya gonna go when its all said and done eh
You gotta go when it’s all said and done
You better know, if you don’t, where you’ll go

Stop and Praise!

Written By: Rashod Holmes

How can claim that I’m living for you,
when every chance I get, I do what I used to
You said when I’m in you lord, I’m a new creature,
old things are passed away and all things are made new
For this prize does not come without price,
It may call for more of me to sacrifice
My time, my mind, and I long for more,
hungry your precence oh lord

(Chorus)
I just got to praise him, when it seems like there’s no time
Can’t be too busy to praise him, if your are caught up with this life
Just slow down and praise, pause and praise, stop and praise

(Verse 2)
You arose and sent your comforter,
So I could live this life not by power or not by might
But by the Holy Ghost
The anointing lord, please give me more, more than before
As the power of the your spirit resides in me
The anointing for your glory has set me free
By your grace, I’ve been saved, that why I will, long I as I live,
sing songs that praise name

(Chorus)
I just got to praise him, when it seems like there’s no time
Can’t be too busy to praise him, if your are caught up with this life
Just slow down and praise, pause and praise, stop and praise

(Bridge)
Can’t get caught up in the ways of this world
One thing I know, In case you haven’t heard
That he feeds off my praise, it exhalts his name,
Im so glad I am save, I’ll forever give him praise

REPEAT
