Biography

Minister Napoleon Williams, born and raised in Indianapolis, is known throughout the city for his spectacular choral direction style and jazzy personality. This anointed young man has found his niche as a vocal trainer, composer, actor, and choral instructor. He is the Minister of Music at the prestigious Mt. Olive Baptist Church, one of the city's largest baptist churches with a congregation of more than 2000, and reigns supreme as the Gospel Choir Instructor of Cathedral High School in Indianapolis. He is also involved in community theater, and has starred in local productions with the American Cabaret Theatre; in shows such as Amazing Gospel, The Fabulous Fifties, and A Christmas Carol.

Minister Williams developed a love for God's music through the nurturing of his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Myrtle Rhodes. She would take him to choir rehearsals as a young lad, and have him lead songs in the choir. His favorite aunt started him playing the piano and from there, Minister Williams has been unstoppable in creating, arranging and singing heavenly melodies.

Because of his unfailing generosity and compassion for his fellowman, Minister Williams received the Outstanding Service Award in July 2004 from Mayor Bart Peterson's office, and the Spirit of Humanity Award , a local renowned recognition for his meritorious contributions in support of church-community relations.

Minister Williams founded True Friends True Praise in early 2004 based upon a vision he received from God instructing him to bring this eclectic group of singers together and record. Within three months of its conception, NAPOLEON WILLIAMS & TRUE FRIENDS TRUE PRAISE recorded their debut CD, "Use Me As You Will". This new project has been described as a unique culmination of traditional gospel music with a splash of contemporary savvy!

This wonderfully talented group has taken their hometown of Indianapolis by storm! They’ve appeared twice on their local TBN segment of ‘Praise the Lord’, and opened for gospel greats such as Tye Tribbett & GA, The Williams Brothers, and Doc McKenzie & The Hi-Lites. Currently, they are the GRAND PRIZE WINNER of the 2006 AtlantaFest Talent Search!

“Use Me As You Will” is just the beginning of their journey as a rising star in the christian music community!

Lyrics

R U Ready?

Written By: Rueben Cusic

R U ready
For the coming of the Lord
R U ready
For the Lord to crack the sky

No man knows
Knows the day nor the hour
He shall appear
Be very sure that you're ready
For He's coming again so soon

He's coming
Like a thief in the night
Be ready, be ready when he comes
You've got to be ready
Be ready when he comes

Be ready
(altos) No man knows the day nor the hour
(tenors) Don't let him catch you with your work undone
(sop's) Be ready, you don't wanna be lost

Be ready!

Use Me As You Will

Written By: Tiffanie G. Bridges

If you need someone who will do just what you say
If you need someone who is willing to obey
I'm available to use
I will do just what you say do
Oh Lord, use me as you will

If you need someone who will stand for what is right
If you need someone who is not afraid to fight
I'm available to use
I will do just what you say do
Oh Lord, use me as you will

Use me
I am your instrument
Choose me
I will obey your holy will
Oh Lord, use me as you will

Oh Lord, use me

The Only Living God

Written By: NWJ Ministries

We worship you for who you are
Praise you for what you've done
You healed the sick and raised the dead
Man-made gods cannot compare
You are the only living God
You are the only living God

You're the Creator, Alpha and Omega
Crucified upon a cross
Rose with all power in your hand
You are the only living God

Jehovah-Jireh, my provider
Jehovah-Niss'i, my protection
Jehovah-Rapha, my healer
Jehovah-Ra-ah, my shepherd
Jehovah-Tsidkenu, you are my righteousness
Jehovah-Shalom, my peace

El Gibbor, God of strength
El Elyon, God of might
El Shaddai, God almighty
Elohim, God my Creator

I am that I am
Alpha and Omega
Beginning and the end
You're my savior
My redeemer
You're my keeper from all harm

You are the only living God
