Engulfed with the heart of a worshipper, Alonzo’s ultimate desire is pleasing God, benefitting the Kingdom, and fulfilling the destiny for his life. His passion remains spreading the message and love of Jesus Christ through the ministries of music, arts, and the spoken Word.
Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Alonzo was introduced to Christ at an early age and accepted Him as his personal savior at the age of nine. Approximately six years later, Alonzo, with a better understanding of who he was and would become, submitted his gift fully to the work of the Lord. Since that time he has continuously developed as a man with the heart of a worshipper, thus giving him grace as an anointed worship leader and minister, a successful entrepreneur, humble servant, and much more.
Alonzo is highly trained, educated, and gifted. He received outstanding training through his studies at The University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) and Winston-Salem State University (WSSU), both in Winston-Salem, NC. He is versatile in his vocal techniques and abilities. Alonzo is classically trained and has performed numerous operas and with several symphonies. He was selected to represent his university in the acclaimed national and international group, 105 Voices of History, which recorded its presentation.
The diversities of his gifts have afforded Alonzo the opportunity to be featured in stage plays and one-man shows. Alonzo is often sought after as the guy who can and will bring it! He simply loves all that has been entrusted into his hands. Alonzo has performed with SERIOUS, a group based from his former church, Oak Springs Baptist Church and with New Life Fellowship Church where John P. Kee pastors. He has also performed with MENistry, winners of the FamFest competion in Durham, NC in 2007, which opened up for gospel artists Kierra Sheard and Keith 'Wonderboy' Johnson. Alonzo currently performs with Mischael Goldsmith and S.O.U.L.O.U.T. often featured as a lead singer. His group, Voices of the Kingdom (VOK), often performs along with him and is recognized as an energetically anointed group.
Alonzo embraces the need for spiritual covering and having a voice that speaks into your destiny. He found his place at the Greater Church of Deliverance Worship Complex, home of Christ Cathedral, under the leadership of his senior pastor and prelate, Bishop Freddie B. Marshall. Alonzo faithfully serves at his church as a praise and worship leader, choir member, music ministry trainer, youth ministry worker, Christian Education instructor, licensed minister and assists his leader and church in any capacity he can.
With all he does, nothing is more important and rewarding to Alonzo than worship. It is his passion and he has been honored to share as a worship and praise leader, psalmist, featured vocalist, and minister in many venues. His anointing and skill are often called upon no matter where he is and it is his pleasure to serve the Kingdom.
World, brace yourself! The much anticipated solo project of Alonzo will be released soon! This project will feature songs written and performed by Alonzo. This refreshing voice and vessel will captivate the listener and usher you into the presence of the Lord and allow you the chance to worship God in the beauty of holiness with joy!
