David Powell is upbeat about his latest release God Nah Sleep .

According to the singer, the reception to the single has been positive.

“The feedback from God Nah Sleep has been great so far. The video has over 23,000 views, so I am just going to push along with the promotion. Things are really picking up, especially on social media,” he said.

The track was released on the Roael Entertainment label in July and is available on all digital platforms.

Powell grew up on the Mannings Hills Road of St Andrew and attended Oberlin High. He said he was introduced to the performing arts by his parents, especially his father, aspiring singer Beres Powell.

He entered the music segments of the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission competitions and TVJ's school choir contest, All Together Sing, where he was was one of the lead soloists in a winning Oberlin team in 2010.

“I believe that music is one the most beautiful things in the world and has great power, but others use this power negatively. My dream is to create music that will be able to save lives and uplift others now and years to come. In order for this to happen, I must learn and take all my opportunities to grow and develop myself professionally and master my art,” he said.

The singer said he is continuously honing his craft. He and his friend, Tevin Gibbons, recently wrote a song titled Relationships, which was recorded on the Roael Entertainment imprint.

He is booked to perform on Unruly Holiday in The Bahamas in December.
