16 May 2017 (Los Angeles, California) – BMI award-winner Marlin "Hookman" Bonds is a Sony/ATV songwriter/producer and has written songs for many Grammy-nominated albums. He is issuing a proclamation with the release of "God Got Me," an affirming salute to the resilience and the irrepressible spirit of the African- American community.

A consistently successful and gifted songwriter known for producing the perfect hook, Hookman continues to write songs for chart-topping artists: Chris Brown, Jason Derulo, Kevin Gates, Demi Lovato, Jordin Sparks, and Kid Ink, to name a few."

'God Got Me,' which features St. Louis natives Mz. 007 and King, is an anthem specifically about resilience within the African-American community," says Hookman. "This song is a reminder that though we've faced seemingly impossible odds and many other adversaries, we not only survive... we thrive!"

The music video for "God Got Me" was filmed in Hookman's hometown of St. Louis, Missouri…just a few miles from Ferguson, where the Michael Brown shooting shocked the nation. "The Ferguson unrest was a response to the discrimination that is so common in the African-American community," says Hookman. "The visual I created in "God Got Me" refutes those stereotypes and promotes tolerance and equality."

An active voting member of the Grammy Awards, Hookman continues to write for every major label, producing hit records while producing a reality TV show and managing his own artists.

BMI award-winner Marlin "Hookman" Bonds is a Sony/ATV songwriter/producer and has written songs for Grammy-nominated albums. He has written songs for Chris Brown, Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony, Kevin Gates, Demi Lovato, Jordin Sparks, Jay Sean and Kid Ink, to name a few. The "Hookman" moniker denotes his innate creative strength: producing the perfect hook for a song and instantly captivating his listeners. Most of Hookman's songs have hit the Top 40 Billboard Charts. It's no wonder he's taken that expertise to release music independently as well. With his latest release, "God Got Me" (featuring St. Louis natives Mz.007 and King), Hookman lives up to his name, as always.
