December 29, 2020 (Portsmouth, Virginia) – In her first release in four years, Bonita Burney Simmons, also known as the spiritual thermostat, has released a call to action for America through her new single, “America Bless God.” The single will be available at all digital retailers, including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon on January 7th, 2021.
Stepping back out, this new release offers a heart's cry to America to give God what He’s due. “America Bless God” was birthed out of the need to be transparent and forgiven by God for being a selfish nation. Bonita says, “My prayer is that this song brings an awareness to the hearers that we’ve been spoiled and that more than ever it is time for us to give God what He is so deserving of praise, honor, and glory."
With strong and powerful instrumentation, the single pays homage to the traditional God Bless America at its start. Paired with Bonita’s influential vocal, this song is full of patriotic references as it relates to the current state of America regarding the pandemic, racial injustices, and political turmoil. Bonita says, “As individuals, as a nation, we in America have been blessed by God. Now, it is time for us, America, to Bless God!”
Bonita’s career spans over decades as she started singing at the tender age of three. By age 12, she started her gospel singing group, a trio called “Tried by Fire.” Determined and focused, Bonita shared the stage with national recording gospel artists: Shirley Caesar, John P. Kee, Luther Barnes, The Winans, The Williams Brothers, and many others. She also won first place at the world-famous Apollo Theatre in New York City.
She has won numerous awards, including Rhythm of Gospel Awards for Traditional Artist of the Year and Best Performance by a Female Artist.
