Music from the Heart of Pastor Tony Martorana Helps Transform an Urban Neighborhood

(Rochester, NY) -
In 2007 Pastor Tony Martorana of Joy Community Church in Rochester, NY was contacted by guitar player Paul Drago from his first band. Pastor Tony has a successful career in the music business in 1973 and was a successful singer and writer for United Artists and MCA records in the past. Paul met with Pastor Tony and asked, "What are you doing with your music and writing?" "My energy has been on preaching and some singing," said Tony, "Let's write some music" was Paul's reply. Tony answered "I will write, if it glorifies the Lord," their reunion resulted in Tony's newest CD release In the Rain. This powerful and blessed music duo (Paul since saved and baptized in 2008) brought forth yet another song, "I Found My Way," depicting faith and hope in the streets. Truly the story of Joy Community Church's mission in Rochester, NY. You can find more information about this new CD at www.jojokidmusic.com/tonymartorana or www.myspace.com/tonymartorana.





Tony began his music career in 1968 in the Bronx night clubs in NYC. He was featured in 16 magazines working as Tony Matti, The Joint Effort, Emmis, and the Lemon Tree Band. Playing in Las Vegas, Park Avenue, Cape Cod, and touring the US and Canada, Tony played and appeared with Barry Manilow, Tony Orlando, Tommy James, DiMucci and many other artists.





In 1977 he left show biz for full time ministry as a Youth Pastor. His ministry career has been an amazing journey around the world with a message of the Father's love for wounded children and families. As preaching became Tony's passion and focus, his singing career stood in the background. While appearing on all the major Christian networks, Tony wrote a book entitled Your Home is Not Broken and also published articles in several contemporary magazines.





In 2004 Tony returned Rochester, purchased a home, reestablished connections, and took charge of the mission along with a great group of people to transform the corner of Goodman and Bay St. by "Lighting the Night." The church transcended a commercial building on a corner from drugs, prostitution, and gun shots to a building lit up with lights and servicing the community with a medical clinic, pregnancy, counseling center, food and clothing pantry, learning center for computer training center, job skills development and mentoring. A youth center with video games, Christian music and adult supervision is underway and soon to be. Joy community is a multicultural church. You can visit online at www.joycc.info
