Share Gospel recording artist Deon Kipping, who announced last week that he has been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, took to Facebook Live to thank everyone for their prayers and support.

In the video message, the “What’s Coming Is Better” songwriter also expressed gratitude for the benefit concert his big-name industry friends are organizing on his behalf.

“This week I completed my first week of chemo and radiation, and it’s been a very hard week,” said the musician whose free “A Night of Love” event is taking place March 7, 2017 at 7 p.m. at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Connecticut.

What the 37-year-old describes as an “unbelievable” ministry lineup of heavy-hitters includes: William Murphy, Tasha Cobbs, JJ Hairston, Jonathan Nelson, Isaac Carree, Jason Nelson, Vashawn Mitchell, Gerald and Tammi Haddon, Zacardi Cortez and James Fortune.

According to Kipping, more people beyond those publicly mentioned, will be attending as well.

“I’ve been reading your messages. I’ve been seeing you guys pray for me. All my friends that have hit me that I haven’t been able to respond to, I promise you I’m going through every message and I’m trying to respond to them as much as I can. It’s just overwhelming,” he said in the video which, at the time of publishing this piece, has been viewed more than 35,000 times.

“I appreciate everybody that’s taken the time to call me,” said the Connecticut native, adding, “I don’t take any of this for granted.”

Kipping began generating buzz when he wrote and recorded “Praise Him in Advance,” which is heard on Marvin Sapp’s 2007 album, Thirsty, earning the cancer-fighting worshiper his first ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award.

Since that time, his reputation for high-quality, moving anthems has grown his fan base, and solidified what he calls “lifelong friendships” with gospel’s elite.

“I don’t think that I would be able to make it through all of this without you guys,” Kipping told his social media followers, admitting that treatment has been “super hard” and exhausting.

Nevertheless, the singer is remaining optimistic, saying, “I do believe that I’m gonna beat this. God is gonna heal my body.”

The faith-filled Christian who is determined to fight for his wholeness so he can continue to raise his young son said,  “Please continue to pray. I’ve got weeks and weeks of this chemo, and radiation [and] all the other things I’m doing to beat this," he said.

According to Kipping's recent Instagram update, he has five more weeks of treatment left.
