Wells hopes his new album “Joy in the Morning,” which releases Friday, helps inspire believers through powerful, biblical messages embedded in the lyrics.
“[The album is what] I hope to be a collection of songs that lift people’s sightline to the horizon of heaven,” Wells said. “We need to be reminded that now is not forever, that there is a reality beyond the reality that we live in every day.”
Watch Wells discuss his testimony, navigating fame, and his mission to bring others to Christ:
The singer referenced Psalm 3:5, which reads (NIV), “Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” It’s a powerful verse giving hope to the afflicted and reminding believers there’s another reality beyond the temporal.
Wells also spoke about his childhood and musical interests, which he says started when he was young and grew in prevalence in his life simultaneously.
“My parents divorced when I was little … and they both went on their own spiritual journeys,” he said.
Wells recalled going to Sunday school for the first time when he was 9 years old and how he instantly felt connected to the church experience.
“I just fell in love with it,” he said. “I felt love with the people and started to learn more and more about Jesus.”
Flash forward a few decades, and Wells is now a successful singer who inspires others to love Christ while also navigating the “unique highs and lows” that come with the territory. He said that clinging to Christ has been essential as his career has grown.
“All elevation comes with pressure, and if what is happening inside of our heart and soul is not sealed by the work of the Holy Spirit, and if we’re not doing the work on the inside, that becomes the most difficult part to manage of it all,” he said.
Wells also delivered wise words about the other pressures — or expectations — surrounding artists speaking out on the issues of the day. While he has thoughts and opinions about everything happening, he said he approaches his words and speech with great care.
“Everyone expects someone with a microphone to have an opinion,” Wells said. “And I think sometimes its better that those of us who have microphones — if our opinions are not backed by conversation, information, deep study, and understanding of some of the complexities that exist in the world — it would be better to just sing in our microphones than to speak in them.”
He continued, “Our words carry a lot of weight, and so we need to make sure that we are well-schooled on the issues that we decide to speak about and speak toward.”
