*Karew (pronounced: Kuh-rue) Records is releasing Jonathan Nelson’s new single “Finish Strong” this month.

Co-written with Kenneth Shelton, “Finish Strong” was recorded live this summer in Nelson’s hometown Baltimore, Md. at the Kingdom Worship Center.

The forthcoming album is Nelson’s first on Karew Records.

“I hope people will finish strong in whatever they are assigned to do in life,” Nelson says. “Whatever you are called and commissioned to do, remember it’s not about how well you start, it’s about how well you finish. Your pursuit, purpose and assignment in life must be run with patience and endurance. It’s not going to be easy, you will have some road blocks, some detours, and maybe some delays, but at the end of the day, you must finish strong.”

“Finish Strong,” is scheduled for release in 2013.
