HesgreatTony Wilkins is considered by most as an architect of the choir sound from the late 80s well into the 90s.  As a composer and musician, Wilkins gave life and breath to LA Mass Choir working with the likes of Donald Taylor and Laythan Armour to create hits as Love Lifted Me, That’s When You Blessed Me and Grace.  Grace would find new life some ten years later being covered by Bishop T. D. Jakes and the Potter’s House Mass Choir and winning two Stellar awards.

Today, the California native finds himself leading the saints in praise at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Los Angeles and Full Gospel Baptist Church in Compton, CA.  With a career that spans 30 years, Wilkins shows no signs of slowing down and has just released his debut solo project He’s Great, which is available digitally.
