John Elefante, the voice of the chart-topping hits by KANSAS like “Play the Game Tonight” and “Fight Fire with Fire,” is back with a brand new studio album, The Amazing Grace. The new album will be released in North America on April 22 through Deko Entertainment.
As an artist, Elefante’s credits include writing and singing lead vocals on three multi-platinum albums. And as a producer, his albums have earned numerous GMA Dove Awards, four GRAMMY Awards, and seven GRAMMY nominations.
This is his first solo album since 2013’s On My Way to the Sun, and as Elefante explains, it was two years in the making. “The Amazing Grace was recorded during a dark and very unusual two-year period in all of our lives. COVID-19 rocked our world in a way we’d never experienced, at least not in my lifetime. It made me reflect on my own mortality, my family, and those who I love. I was forced to get used to a new normal, or you could say abnormal. Somehow in spite of social distancing, it brought me closer to friends and others.”
The Amazing Grace contains ten brand new songs, and it is sure to please his diehard KANSAS fans with tracks like “Won’t Fade Away” and the first single, “Stronger Now.” Deko Entertainment’s Bruce Pucciarello comments, “John takes us on a spiritual journey, with a stop in Kansas and then this beautiful album. It is uplifting and catchy and contemporary with a little bit of throwback. Deko is really stoked to release this one.”
