Inspired by this historic election season that has seen the first viable black presidential candidate and a new sense of hope throughout the nation, Chicago-based gospel balladeer Desmond Pringle has released a new single “Hope is Born” as a free mp3 download.

The Gospel balladeer belts out lines from the heart & mind, reflecting not only the hope of the American people, but also the entire world. “So many weary years, silent tears. Now we give up to a great new time of the year… The ceiling has been shattered, millions of pieces have been scattered…” Whomever The people choose to lead them, Desmond sees hope as already being bought to the country: “we’ve already won, regardless of the outcome.” After all, “hope is born, not only in the White House, but in my house.”

Coinciding with the release of the single, Desmond has launched a new blog calling for people to embrace the power of hope to affect their own realities. The blog will serve as a launchpad for people of all stripes to spread the message of hope born out of this election season and beyond.

“The message is simple: that anything is possible to the one who believes! The assignment is to get the message out to as many people as possible. We are intentional about getting the message downloaded in hearts and encoded in minds. Embracing the premise that, ‘As a man thinketh in his heart so is he’, we are committed to filling the earth with a lot of HOPEFUL people. Desperate days demand us to actively participate rather than passively spectate in life!”
