How It Got Started
As long as I can remember, I have loved to sing and make music. When I was about 5 years old, I remember being fascinated as I watched the famous entertainer Harry Belafonte on television, and I determined then that I was going to be a singer just like him.
Although my mother did her best to point me in the direction of godly living, many hours of television, listening to secular music on the popular radio stations, combined with the stimulus and influence of growing up in New York City, led me to believe that fame and fortune was the only way to obtain happiness and success. Throughout my childhood and youth I often toyed with these thoughts in my mind and in college I decided to study communications and theatre.
After graduating college, I managed to develop and maintain a steady career in New York City, as an actor, working on soap operas, movies, television and radio commercials. But throughout the years in show business, God’s Spirit never stopped calling to me. As much as I enjoyed my career and told myself that I would continue to do this for the rest of my life, I knew by the “still small voice” that the life that I was living was not pleasing to God.
I did my best to sidestep the promptings of the Lord until one day He sent an old friend that I used to sing with as a youth in the church choir. She invited me to a group Bible study at her home one Friday evening. I was not really interested in spiritual things. I consented to attend for the purpose of social networking but after studying the Word of God that night, something I had not done in a very long time, I was drawn by a love that I had not known or understood in the past and I gave my heart fully to Jesus Christ that evening.
As I continued to study God’s word and pray, He began to show me things as they truly are behind the scenes in show business and in life. I started going back to church and it became very clear to me that real happiness can only be found in Jesus Christ.
It has been many years since I took that step. There have been many challenges and trials but I am happy to say that I have not looked back nor do I regret in any way the decision I made that night.
In the summer of 2000, God moved upon my heart to start Moses’ Song Ministries to encourage and keep “His Song” in the hearts of His people. And though the enemy has tried to silence that song, God has seen fit to keep it alive. I count it an honor and a privilege to serve and share the gospel through music where ever I am called and by His grace I will continue as long as He sees fit for me to do so.
