Brandon joined the show to discuss his new single, “Come to Pass,” written by the renowned David Fraser. Brandon expressed his gratitude, saying, “I’m truly honored that he thought of me for this song.”

Reflecting on his time on Sunday Best, Brandon said, “It was an amazing experience, Sheryl. That was 10 years ago in 2014. I had the chance to perform in front of legends like Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, and Kiara Sheard. It’s been an incredible journey since then.”


In addition to his solo work, Brandon has been busy with background vocals for John P. Key and Donnie McClurkin, and serving as vocal director for the Legends Tour featuring McClurkin, Marvin Sapp, and Fred Hammond. “It was an honor to organize and direct singers across different cities, and eventually, I got back on the microphone for the last few shows,” he said.

Brandon is also branching out into theater. He recently played Mister in the Broadway adaptation of “The Color Purple” at Morgan State University. “Playing Mister was a challenge, but it was a healing experience for me. I’ve always wanted to act, and this opportunity was amazing,” Brandon explained.

I’m also returning to Morgan State for another production next year. I have so many dreams, including performing on Broadway in New York one day.”
