“Hero,” a song by Kenny Robinson, offers support and gratitude to American veterans. With lines such as “You make me proud I’m American,” Robinson’s serenade to Americans who have served in the military expresses just how appreciative he is of the Armed Forces heroes.

Robinson is a gospel recording artist, songwriter and producer from Fort Pierce, Florida. Through his philanthropic efforts, Robinson’s reverence for American veterans is exhibited even when he’s not behind the mic. As a public service volunteer, he helps to build homes for veterans and supply them with valuable resources.

Robinson’s “Hero” anthem illustrates that “freedom isn’t free and someone had to pay the price.” That’s one reason why he works diligently to pay homage to military trailblazers through his partnership with the non-profit Building Homes for Heroes.

As a husband of 20 years, father of five, musician, licensed minister and community pioneer, Robinson has exemplified what it means to “walk the walk and talk the talk.” He  has been featured on CBS’s “Extraordinary Persons” special, which highlighted public leaders for their work in the community.

As a humanitarian and firm believer in Christ, the 2019 Tampa Bay Gospel Award nominee has instituted his character traits through his music, which demonstrates positivity, motivation and encouragement. His “anointed voice” with robust melodic frequencies has landed him on Billboard’s Gospel Charts multiple times, including for his latest single, “Something Good,” an ode to perseverance and determination despite adversity. He performed the hit single at the 2022 Essence Music Festival of Culture in New Orleans during the summer.

Robinson says that he makes music with the intent to “inspire, uplift and serve people with a purpose.”
