Gospel vocalist and songwriter, Earnest Pugh, has dropped a moving new music video for his current radio hit “Survive” on VEVO. Pugh pairs once again with Michael Bereal who produced “Rain on Us” and “I Need Your Glory” and with Kenny Curry in the writer’s corner to tell a story of epic resilience. This will be the ninth album from the former worship leader at Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington. Survive (P-Man Music/Blacksmoke) is set to release October 27th. The roster of features on Survive include Kierra Sheard, Nikki Ross, Sarg and John Paul McGee. The stellar title track is available for download on major digital service providers such as the iTunes Store, and Google Play.

A Houston resident, Pugh is donating a portion of the song’s proceeds to the city’s Hurricane Harvey Fund, which benefits survivors of the catastrophic storm. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Black Smoke Music will donate a portion of the proceeds from the single “Survive” to breast cancer research. “This is near and dear to my heart because I have lost countless relatives and friends to this horrible disease over the years,” Pugh says. “This is my way of edifying those who have faced this life-threatening disease.” October concert touring schedule in support of the new project.
