Michael English’s roots are in Southern gospel; he performed with the Singing Americans, the Goodmans, the Gaither Trio and the Gaither Vocal Band before going solo in 1991.
English began drawing attention to his powerful tenor when he recorded “I Bowed on My Knees and Cried Holy,” first with the Singing Americans, then with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.
Michael English has won Dove Awards for Best New Artist and Best Male Vocalist. Among his solo efforts: 1993’s Hope, 1995’s Healing and 1996’s Freedom. He returned in 1998 with Gospel, followed two years later by Heaven to Earth.
