Introducing Gospel Music's Tré Thomas

I feel like the music can relate to a broad range of people and that’s just because I’m being myself. When people realize that your heart is right, and there’s no fluff around the message, it’s easy for them to relate to it. ~Tré Thomas

Up-and-coming gospel artist Tré Thomas is on a mission to bring people closer to God. His approach is a little different: He infuses an R&B sound and feel into messages that tackle issues we deal with on a daily basis––issues he feels God can handle if we simply give them over. With a sound influenced by the likes of Brandy, Tweet and Luther Vandross––as well as Richard Smallwood, The Hawkins family and Donald Lawrence––one is introduced to a fresh musical blend that is a bit uncommon in the gospel arena. However, it is this exception that Tré believes will assist him in his mission.
