I was born in Reidsville, NC in 1942. It may be a small town, but many Southern Gospel artists have come from surrounding areas, such as The Hoppers, Janet Paschal, Dove Brothers, Down East Boys and many more. I was saved at the age of eight years old. My parents sang in a quartet where I was brought along to many singing conventions and other engagements.
I made my very first recording on a homemade record machine. The songs I sang on this recording were "Thank You Lord, For Saving My Soul" and "Jesus Loves Me". I was only 7 at the time! After completing the fourth grade, we moved to Newport News, Virginia. It was there that I spent the remaining years of my childhood. My first singing debut was with The Singing Deacons. In 1966, I joined the Calvary Quartet. I sang with this group for three years. I then joined the Songsmen Quartet based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Then I briefly sang with The Singing Americans. From there, God led me to a family group, The Amburgey Family.
This led me to Grand Prairie, TX. It was here that I met my wife, Joyce. After we were married a year, we were blessed with our daughter, Lisa. The first group I joined in Texas was The Lee Gann Quartet. From there, I joined the Swordsmen Quartet. After disbanding, we began a group called New Life. One of the highlights of my career, however, was when I sang briefly with The Calvin Wills Family. Other groups I have sang with include The Jubileirs and The Ellis Family. Gospel music has given me opportunities to sing with some full time groups. Some places I've sang has been along the East coast and the Battle of Songs in Fort Worth, TX.
For the last three years I have dealt with some health problems. This has led me into solo ministry. God has opened up a lot of doors and I am so grateful for that. I still feel that God has led me to sing in the capacity that I am. I look forward to singing wherever possible. You may contact me at the information below.
