Chicago Chapter

The 27 year old, with his angelic voice and his uniquely authentic songwriting, has only graced the industry for 7 years, but he's made an indelible impact already, winning fans from Stevie Wonder and Nicky Minaj to Lalah Hathaway and Tori Kelly. Kirk Franklin hails him as "the future of gospel music." His latest, sophomore album "Life Music: Stage Two" was GRAMMY nominated in 2016 and remained #1 on Billboard Gospel chart for 4 weeks. He also has 7 Stellar nominations, 3 Dove nominations and 1 Dove win. While touring and becoming one of the most internationally popular gospel artists, he also picked up his Master's in 2015 and has served as adjunct professor in Columbia College's music department in Chicago for 4 years. This year he co-headlines an 18-city LiveNation gospel tour.
