After more than 15 years since his last national release, 2017 marks the year of the return of MR REAL, the General is back. Open Your Eyes will be the first of three singles released before MR REAL’S new album, AWAKENED. Open Your Eyes features Angel Taylor of the gospel group Trin-I-Tee 5:7 and is produced by Tone Jones. Open Your Eyes is a song inspired by the constant violence our culture has been plagued with in recent years. With our country facing so much division and tension, Open Your Eyes sends a clear message of hope that change is just a look in the mirror away.
About MR REAL
MR REAL, AKA Brian Hill began rapping at age 12 and was called to the ministry as a young child. MR REAL said he would rap and use the money one day to build his church. His message was always positive in his earlier years of rapping; MR REAL made the transition to Gospel Rap after he heard the legendary group the Gospel Gangstaz and T Bone in 1994. MR REAL would eventually sign to Grapetree Records in 1998 and release his first cd in 1999 called Humility. In 2000 MR REAL would release his second international cd entitled A Chosen One. After traveling the country and impacting thousands of lives, and with his departure from Grapetree Records, MR REAL took a break from music to raise his children and work in the ministry as a worship leader, and eventually the Pastor of a ministry he started, Light It Up Kingdom Ministries where he served as the leader for four years.
Since his last national release MR REAL has released a collection of songs; In The Beginning 1996 – 2006, started a production company called Real One Productions, and continued to do concerts and serve in the ministry. Feeling the urgent call of God to return back to music, MR REAL shut his ministry down to focus on what God created him to do… music. It’s been more than 15 years since MR REAL left the gospel music industry but God has called him back to raise the standard of what a believer should look like in in the music industry. MR REAL will be releasing new music in The First quarter of 2017, be looking for new music, a new sound, a powerful move of God, and the rebirth of a General. Grace and Peace to you all…
