“This song captures me in a conversation with God where I am expressing my dependence upon Him for the very air I breathe,” says Pugh. “Sometimes life can hit you so hard until you feel as though the very breath has been knocked out of you. But that’s the very moment we must cry out for our ultimate life support machine (GOD), who is willing and able to breathe upon us again and restore life immediately.”
Written by Ken Hoskins, Lucius B. Hoskins, Shone Williams and Alfred Singleton (The Singletons), and produced by Lucious Hoskins, “I Need You to Breathe” is the lead single off of Pugh’s forthcoming CD entitled Fully Persuaded, which will be released on his P-Man Music Group Label. Pugh has teamed up with Michael Bereal and Cedric Thompson to produce Fully Persuaded. It will be the singer’s 9th CD.
