Biography


BJ WILLIAMS

In a world where promiscuity, materialism, and the exploitation of money takes precedence over love, musicianship, regard for self-worth and respect for women, Bj stands as the representation of a revolution for these positive qualities. It was during the tender age of four when Bj realized his musical potential and began to explore his gifts of singing, dancing, and art. Being a negative product of the streets of South Florida would have been an easy conquest to pursue, however, he used the common behavior associated with the neighborhoods where he grew up as an incentive to do the right thing and encourage his peers to also make better choices. This monumental move would cause him, later in life, to become an activist for the productivity of our youth and young adult communities instead of perpetuating the pattern of indecision, deficiency of self-worth and self respect.

It was in 1993 that Bj began to venture out and was introduced to other bands, ensembles, and musical groups that would inevitably cause him to seriously commit to his craft. He was exposed to and performed many musical genres on the outside of his church affiliation. Classical, Opera, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Gospel, and Soul were just a few of the genres which caused him to develop and cultivate his own unique soulful style and ability. Being inspired by so many of the great pioneers such as Duke Ellington; Donny Hathaway; Sam Cooke; Marvin Winans; John P. Kee; Stevie Wonder; Al Green; and Marvin Gaye, Bj used his inspiration and compassion for music to become both a writer and skilled vocalist committed to producing nothing less than the best in musicality.

Some of Bjs musical contributions include: performing as a background vocalist for the late Lou Rawls; Opened for great artists such as the Legendary Gospel Artist Shirley Caesar, the Reverend John P. Kee, and Yolanda Adams. He was nominated in three (3) categories for the South Florida Gospel Music Awards and awarded a 1997 ACT-SO Award Medal in the Vocal Performance Category; DSA 1997 Most Outstanding Male Vocalist; and appeared as a lead vocalist on the 1998 and 2001 recordings of the Bethune-Cookman College Concert Chorale, titled From Bach to Gospel II and III. Bj has toured, performed, and recorded extensively with many great groups such as The Dillard School of the Arts Harmony Plus; Dillard Concert Chorus; the Youth Alive Crusade Chorale (YACC) under the direction of Kendall C. Hunter; Gospel Music Sensation Eliakim; Hattie Harden & Friends of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; the World-Renowned Bethune-Cookman University Concert Chorale; and the acclaimed Jazz Band "Forte".
