A Message From Larry:
“Growing up in Toledo, Ohio in the 50’s and 60’s, my biggest musical influence was the church and the Motown sound. I started out at the tender age of 16 singing in clubs, and joined a gospel quartet at age 18. In the 1980’s through the 90’s, I sang with the contemporary group Proverbs Ministry. We ministered with Walter Hawkins, BeBe & CeCe Winans, Tremaine Hawkins, Esther Smith and various other artists. From 1992 to 2000, I was an ordained Elder at Straight Gate Church and I also sang with the Straight Gate Mass Choir for many years. After my wife died in 2000, I prayed about God’s plan for my life and it was confirmed in me that God was taking me to another level.”
“My new CD is more than just songs. They are God’s words put to music that will minister life to the lifeless, hope to the hopeless and strength to those who are weak. And ultimately, Glory to God.”
