Bio

Thomas Jackson was born in Pineville, LA and raised in Alexandria, LA. At a very early age, Thomas exhibited a burning desire and a great interest in music. At the tender age of four, he would sit at the family picnic table and pretend he was playing the piano, and when he wasn't outside, everything that could be hit became a percussive instrument for him. This would later prove to be quite foreshadowing for Thomas as his passionate love for music continued to strengthen.

At age five, Thomas sang his first solo in church, where his enormous voice wrapped in a miniature body brought the capacity crowd to its feet. That night served as the mark of God's tremendous anointing on Thomas' life. From then on, Thomas became known, locally and abroad, as "that lil' boy." Everywhere his mother took him, "that lil' boy" would surely be a vessel for the holy spirit, and congregations all around were tickled pink to witness such a little fellow be used by God to perform such awesome tasks.

While still only five years old, Thomas became a member of the youth choir at Mt. Triumph Baptist Church in Alexandria. A little while later, he also became a member of The David Weaver Mass Choir, an 80+ member community based choir that ranged in age. Of course, Thomas was the youngest. While under the direction of Mr. David Weaver, Sr., Thomas' church choir director and founder of The David Weaver Mass Choir, Thomas' musical gifts became more and more apparent.

Thomas began playing drums, and a host of other instruments would soon follow. Because of Thomas' eagerness in music, his mother, a single parent, sacrificed to purchase many musical instruments down through the years. She bought a set of drums, several keyboards, a saxophone, an organ, a bass guitar, an electric guitar, a trumpet, amplifiers, and many other accessories that aided in the musician molding process of Thomas.

Since then, Thomas has played with many notable musicians and groups and travelled with them extensively as well. Thomas studied music theory and musical arranging under his high school band director, and his high school choir director enhanced his musical knowledge by providing Thomas with specific vocal studies and techniques.

Thomas went on to further pursue his love for music and completed his collegiate studies in 2001, earning a bachelors degree in music. Today, Thomas is not only a widely known accomplished musician, but he is also an ordained minister of music and an ordained minister of the gospel, as of April 2001.

Thomas founded Blessings From Above, a community based singing group, in September 1997, and God has continued to sustain him ever since. Through the years, Thomas has faced many ups and downs, has had a number of singers and musicians come and go, but he has maintained his faith in God and kept his hand to the plow, refusing to let go of the vision that God spoke to him.
