Nope, it's not Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. And the only reason I'm telling you is because when you hear the intro, you just might think otherwise.
Nope, it's not the 1980s R&B hit "Before I Let Go." The single is actually its gospelized equivalent, "Never Let You Go," by Dennis Garner featuring Truman Comer. The music is entirely familiar, but Garner's lyrics are conspicuously different: "I am so grateful You saved my soul....You are my Savior, and I'll never let You go."
The producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has worked with Quincy Jones and other industry heavyweights throughout his decades-long career. The Greensboro, NC native also made a pair of movie appearances in The Color Purple (as a guitar player) and Eddie.
