Christian singer Jo D was solidly on the path to fulfilling his dream to be a professional baseball player when his mother’s breast cancer diagnosis resulted in him leaving college – and baseball – to care for her. What happened in the subsequent years resulted in the young man feeling a call to music ministry.
Jo D, who is now the Youth Pastor at New Life at Park Street in Jacksonville, Florida, has released his first single in 2017, “This Time is For You” to Christian AC and Christian CHR radio today. Jo D (Jody Finch) wrote the single, which incorporates pop and R&B influences. Big Hack produced the project.
Jo D’s second single “First Class Love” encourages women in abusive relationships to not settle for less than what God has for them. He is currently working on his album. In 2018, Jo D went on a seven city tour, in addition, he opened up for Keith Wonderboy Johnson, Tony Grant from Tyler Perry’s “Love Thy Neighbor” TV show, and Maurice Griffin who was a finalist on Kirk Franklin’s TV show “Sundays Best”.
