Biography

ADDISON BAKER

He’s “The Artist”…..Painting the picture through colorful sounds that men may view God more clearly…
A message heralded from a voice that stirs the soul. From the basement of baritones to the rafters of Heaven, Addison bellows out the Word in song with precision, power and presence. When he sings, all Heaven stands still. Small in stature but explosive in spirit! In a moments notice, he’s a still small voice, a tenacious tenor or a gospel squaller.
A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, the son of Margrette J. Baker, and the late Pastor John L. Baker, Sr., Addison has been sent to bless the nations. Receiving prophecy of the explosive ministry that God promised him, he began singing at the age of two. With much preparation and in seeking God’s face, God elevated him as Evangelist at age seventeen. Armed with a special anointing and spiritual gifts, he is called upon as a unique soulful voice and instrument of praise. Addison says, “My desire is to please and glorify God through the ministry of song.”
He serves as minister, spiritual counselor, and worship leader. He has served under the prophetic ministry of Bishop Thomas and Dr. Juanita Bynum Weeks, III. Displaying a gamete of local, national and international ministry, Addison also serves on the National Worship Team for The Gospel Music Workshop of America. Although he has a pastoral ministry, his passion is in serving the urban community. He works with transitional centers and shelters for men and women. He also has founded a pre-professional skills/mentoring program for youth. He is a full-time servant and student currently pursuing his BA in The Institute for Urban & Global Economic Development at the Beulah Heights University, Atlanta, GA.

Lyrics

You Love Me Truly

Written By: Addison Baker

YOU LOVE ME TRULY
Written by Addison Baker

Verse:
Sunlit rose…Midnight Kiss
Starting over to find myself, understanding what I’ve missed
We’ve been down this road and back a time a two
And now we have the faith that can transcend any view

Chorus:
I know that you do love
You love me truly
Whether miles or years apart
I know that you do love
You love me truly
And it’s always been this way

Verse:
Second chances, are rarely seen in life
If we had to do it all again, I wouldn’t think twice
Maybe it’s easier the second time around
What others knew we did not know, but now we know it now

Chorus:
I know that you do love
You love me truly
Whether miles or years apart
I know that you do love
You love me truly
And it’s always been this way

Bridge:
Through the fire of adversity
Sickness and tragedy
Comes a love as pure as gold like ours
What was meant for the worse
The pain and all the hurts
God used it for his glory and my good…

Chorus:
I know that you do love
You love me truly
You’ve captured my heart again
I know that you do love
You love me truly
You love me…yeah…yeah
I know that you do love
You love me truly
Whether miles or years apart
I know that you do love
You love me truly
And it’s always been this way
