Bill Moss Jr, Ready For Action

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Bill MossDetroit seems to be bursting at the seams with GOSPEL (and giving Chicago, Dallas/Houston and DC/Maryland/Virginia a run for their money).  Making his return to the music scene is Bill Moss, Jr., the older brother of J Moss and nephew of the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark.  For the elder Moss, music is his birthright.  His parents, Bill and Essie Moss made an impact in Gospel music with their group Bill Moss and the Celestials.  Bill and J began their musical careers early on recording as The Moss Brothers.  In 2008, Bill made his solo debut with Manifested Favor, which made its way to #27 on the Billboard Gospel chart.

Bill makes a statement with his new single, Wrestle All Day.  As Jacob wrestled into the hours of the night declaring, “I will not let you go unless you bless me”, Moss encourages believers to hold on to God with the same fervor and dedication.  The new single is available now.
