Biography

Personal:

Edward “Leroy” Cook was born and reared in Houston, Texas. He attended and graduated from the public schools in Houston for his elementary and secondary education. Leroy is a graduate of Prairie View A & M University located in Prairie View, Texas. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business with emphasis in Marketing.

Professional:

Leroy has had close connections with the church since he was a small child. He was introduced to singing very early in his childhood. His first solo presentation was “His Eye is on the Sparrow”. This was the first public presentation that permitted him to realize his dream of singing professionally. In addition to singing, Leroy is currently a member of the music staff at Mc Gee Missionary Baptist Church serving as percussionist/drummer. Leroy has always served as a music leader during his elementary, junior high, and high school years. During the years when he was a participant in the school band, he served as the drum line leader.

Music and performing professionally is the greatest aspiration in life for Leroy. He continued to perform locally in Texas and nationally in the United States. His experiences singing with the Fort Bend Boys Choir in Houston, Texas provided many opportunities to travel and sing. Some of his travels include, but not limited to, Italy, the Vatican, England, and the White House. Choir members selected Leroy to represent the Choir at a White House Christmas event in Washington, D.C. The President during that time recognized the Boys Choir nominee. Membership in the Fort Bend Boys Choir afforded opportunity for vocal lessons, annual vocal training camps, and development of the necessary skills to read and play music.

Music was quite a rewarding experience during college years for Leroy. It was at Prairie View A & M University where he met individuals who also had a passion for singing and performing professionally. Leroy was able to be part of a gospel group, Michal Dixon & Viszion, Baptist Student Movement (BSM) Choir, and the University Chorale. Groups consisted of students from Prairie View A & M University. In addition to the group performance, Leroy coordinated different groups and performances. By invitation, Leroy would perform at talent shows, pageants and awards events, homecoming, Spring Fests, and banquets. His skills in music were also enhanced to a higher level.

Leroy is an entrepreneur. He is the President and CEO of his recently formed company, Cook Entertainment, LLC. He completed his first EP project entitled “Sleepless Nights”. The EP was released in June, 2013 and a video from one of his songs from his EP entitled “Kindness for Weakness”.

Leroy’s DREAM is to create and share positive music! His goal is to reach the world by singing music that will touch everyone in some way. Leroy is excited about the opportunity to share his message through song around the world. It is his hope and prayer that a song or a verse in a song he presents to the world will touch YOU, the reader of his Biography!
