Originating from Elizabethtown Kentucky, William was born and raised in a Southern Baptist household full of Gospel and Blues singers. He developed his vocal talents while singing in the church choir at First Baptist Church of Elizabethtown, and traveling with his family as guests at several area churches and community events.

Since coming to the west coast, William has been blessed to be the opening act for H-Town, Andre Crouch, The Clark Sisters and sing background for the great Stevie Wonder, Chante Moore and Christopher Williams.  He’s also shared the stage with Whitney Houston, Patti LaBelle and Marlon Jackson.

 

William has been a member of an inspirational group called “Light”, an R&B group called “Serenade”, the gospel group “Higher Calling”, West Coast “B” Side Band, and a lead vocalist for the Los Angeles based KJLH Performance Choir. He is currently a background singer for the Sherry Gordy Present’s Take The Stage show in Las Vegas.
