George Bing, 64, has been writing songs for over 50 years. But he says he never did anything with them.
Bing is now the founding pastor of Abundant Life Ministries International Church in Winter Haven. Church music group ALMS Worship will release their single Get Ready (For Your Blessing) on April 13th.
“Get Ready” is an offering song inspired by another church’s offering song. Bing wrote the lyrics and arrangements for the single.

“Songwriting comes so easily to me that I thought anyone could do it,” Bing said.
When the pandemic started, the church started broadcasting its services live. The church wanted to make sure to share music with a sermon. To avoid copyright infringement, Bing thought it would be best to record original music.
“It opened the door for me to (re)start writing my own music,” Bing said.
“Get Ready” will be released on multiple music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and Deezer.
“I’m very confident about what the Lord has given us,” Bing said.
