Brian Courtney Wilson song “A Great Work” is blessing people all over the world.

Who is Brian Courtney Wilson?

Since arriving on the scene in 2009, Wilson has managed to release 3 solo albums and share his talents as a member of Fred Hammond’s United Tenors. Throughout those projects, Wilson’s singular tenor and community-minded ministry has won the humble artist a growing host of fans and critical acclaim. As a Stellar Award winner (United Tenors), a Dove Award winner (Worth Fighting For), ASCAP “Power In Praise” Award winner, as well as a 2016 Grammy Award & Billboard Music Award nominee (Worth Fighting For), the Motown Gospel artist brings the full measure of his singing and songwriting talents to every project and performance.

Wilson’s first album, Just Love (2009) is filled with radio favorites such as “Already Here”, “Awesome God”, the self titled “Just Love” and the song that still holds the record for number of weeks on the Gospel Singles Chart with 92, “All I Need”. His second album, So Proud (2012) builds upon Brian’s signature fusion of gospel, adult R&B and soul music with stand out tracks “He Still Cares”, “Obey Anyway”, “One Day At A Time” & the autobiographical, “So Proud”.

The spare yet fervent track also unwittingly laid the foundation for Wilson’s Motown Gospel debut. During an early chat about the album’s direction, Wilson recalls that Lindsey asked him a pivotal question about the state of the church. “In a world that’s become cynical about authority and organized religion, that’s an easy question to get negative about,” says Wilson. “Instead my gut reaction was it’s still worth fighting for and preserving. I didn’t know then it would be the theme of my album. But from there, God revealed the songs.” The message and feel of “Worth Fighting For” clearly connected to listeners as it was the most heard song in 2015 on Gospel Radio and spent 36 weeks in the Top 5 on the Gospel Radio charts.

Changing tempos with the album’s second single, “I’ll Just Say Yes,” Wilson cautions that you can’t realize what God’s promises are until you take the first step forward and say yes. The inspirational declaration is quickly becoming a favorite with church choirs across the country. Wilson’s realness, as well as his natural musical talents, has continued to endear him to fans. Born and raised near Chicago in Bellwood, Illinois, Wilson grew up watching and later singing in his local church’s adult male choir.

Several years after graduating from University of Illinois, Wilson relocated to Houston where he worked for Johnson & Johnson while singing and writing songs for Windsor Village United Methodist Church’s Sunday services. He was discovered when some of his songs were later played on local radio stations.

Worth Fighting For has solidified Wilson’s position in the gospel music industry as a premiere male vocalist. The album made an impact when it was released. Critics heralded the project “a masterpiece”, and said it “Leaves listeners empowered to worship.”

In 2015, the title single peaked at Number 1 on the Billboard Gospel Songs and Mediabase Gospel chart. Later that year Wilson was nominated for two Dove Awards: Contemporary Gospel/Urban Song of the Year and Traditional Gospel Album of the Year. He won the latter category, marking his first Dove Award win. Wilson also earned his first Grammy® Award nomination for the single, “Worth Fighting For” in the Best Gospel Performance/Song category.

The soulful crooner continued his rise performing on several national TV shows including The 47th Annual Dove Awards, BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel, BET Celebration of Gospel, The BMI Trailblazers Awards, The 31st Annual Stellar Awards and more. He continues to tour and has performed at Bishop TD Jakes Megafest, the Help 2.0 tour and in 2016 starred in the Los Angeles-based stage play, “I’m Only Human,” which received rave reviews.

Now Brian Courtney Wilson is ready to start the next chapter in his burgeoning career. “I love how real this album sounds,” says Wilson. “And that’s one of the things I pray for: to create a great catalog of music that people can lean on in good—and tough—times.”

When I was 3 yrs old I was almost completely blind because of an eye disease called Keratoconus, which is a film that covers the eye(s); the effects of the disease is blurred vision, double vision, poor night vision, and in some cases, gradual loss of vision. I was also in Foster care, but I thank God because my auntie and uncle rescued me from Foster care by taking me out and adopting me. I also thank God because with implants and surgery, I can now see!!!

I started playing the piano at the age of 6 yrs old. I heard my uncle playing the piano and I asked him if I could try and he said “yes”. When he showed me some chords I played them back to him and my Auntie jumped up and asked me if I wanted to play the piano and I said “Sure”. And that’s where my journey began.

I began playing gospel and classical music, singing and composing my own songs. I have traveled the U.S.A.; performing at various events. I have met and performed with many well-known artists; just to name a few, I have met Richard Smallwood, Dr. Margaret Douroux, JJ Hairston, Hezekiah Walker, etc. I have performed with BSlade and Pastor Kohn P.

Take a visit through Pastor John Gray World.

 

That is the statement and life’s calling of John W. Gray III. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, John accepted Jesus Christ as Savior at seven years old at Bethel Baptist Church under the pastorate of Dr. Wayne Davis. The product of two musically gifted parents, John showed an early affinity for music and was directing the choir at seven years old. His passion for music and the arts was evident throughout his formative as he was a part of every theatrical production at church and at school.

After graduating from Withrow High School in 1991, John accepted an academic scholarship to The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio where he continued to pursue music and acting. A sudden and devastating illness to John’s beloved grandmother at the beginning of his sophomore year caused John to lose focus on his academics and he subsequently flunked out of school after that semester. Derailed temporarily, John headed home to seek direction and clarity for his next move. He subsequently enrolled in The University of Cincinnati and became a part of the traveling Gospel Choir that represented the school around the country. While home, John heeded the call to the preached ministry on the Sunday of his 21st birthday at Bethel Baptist Church and preached his first sermon that September. His life would never be the same.

Not long after accepting the call to preach the Gospel, John was asked to be a cast member in a touring stage play starring Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Kirk Franklin and The Family. From there, God began to open doors that would allow John to serve God while utilizing the gifts of music, comedy and preaching that God had given him.

After touring with Kirk Franklin, John’s heart led him to participate in a musical tour whose purpose was to eliminate racism and create equality in the Body of Christ. The tour was headlined by DC Talk, Out of Eden and The Katinas. It was clear to John that God wanted him to be a bridge builder and that comedy would be a gateway to bring the Body of Christ together.

After that tour, in September of 2000, John accepted his first Youth Pastor’s position at The First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset, New Jersey under the leadership of DeForest Soaries. It was while youth pastoring in New Jersey that John felt that he had found the call of God on his life: impact youth and young adults with the Word of God through music, comedy and preaching-all at the same time. To this day, John continues to defy description and labels by seamlessly integrating worship, laughter, preaching, exhortation and encouragement into one package.

Not content to simply be known as a singular gift, John uses all the gifts God has given him to reach people with hope, healing, forgiveness and freedom found in Jesus Christ. From directing, producing or co-producing award winning films, releasing two musical albums, a comedy DVD and appearing on hit T.V. shows “Sister, Sister” and “Tyler Perry’s The House of Payne”, John is determined to show that you can use every gift God has given you to build the Kingdom of God and bless people.

As an in demand speaker, John has traveled the world sharing the Gospel of the Kingdom in his unique and uncompromising way. From South Africa to Australia and many places in between, God has taken John around the world to speak to youth, young adults, entire churches, conferences and camps to say one thing in many ways: Jesus Saves and He loves you with an everlasting love!

He was ordained an Elder at Northview Christian Church in Dothan, AL in March of 2010.

John currently serves as an Associate Pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas under the leadership of Pastor Joel Osteen. Wherever God takes John here and into the future, he is determined to serve with passion, humility and power.

John is quick to acknowledge that although he is grateful for the places God has taken him and the ministries that have opened their doors to him, nothing compares to the joy of his life, His wife of two and a half years Aventer, their son John W. Gray IV, and their newborn daughter, Theory Aspyn-Sky Gray.
