James Bignon - "I Came To Lift Him Up"

James Bignon was born an only child in Savannah, GA, and raised in New York City. He came from a large family of singers, pianists, organists, and preachers. He started singing in church at the age of five and was already writing his own material at 11. He learned to play the piano by watching his parents and soon started taking lessons and theory courses. His impressive skills as a singer, writer, arranger, and instrumentalist were key to his successful recording career. He is shown here with The Deliverance Mass Choir singing live. Please rate.

James did live in Augusta before moving to Atlanta. His singers were god's
Children James organized a 100 voice choir in the 80's I had the
opportunity to sing in that choir and led a song. James has been an
inspiration to us here in Augusta. The program was televised to be on
PBS. It was standing room only at the Antioch Baptist Church. What a time
we had that night.

To god be the Glory!

Автор Kimberly Rollins ( назад)
Praise God! I love to worship the Lord,for who He is, my strength, my joy &
my Savior! Watching them praise the Lord just makes His spirit leap inside
me. Can't explain this feeling, you gotta have a relationship with Jesus to
know what I mean. Hallelujah to the Lamb!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been in music all of my life. I live in Memphis, Tn and go to one of
the best churches in town. Middle Baptist (Whithaven). Rev. Lester Baskin
(pastor). First Lady (Irene Baskin). We have about 70 or more every sunday
morning in our (Sanctuary Choir). And they can (Sang).But I was just
thinking, what would it be like to direcct a choir this size. They all were
getting there praise on. Oh yeay.

I got a chance to meet him at the music workshop some years ago at Berkeley
Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Berkeley, CA . (Rev. Dr. M. T.
Thompson was the pastor at that time). I still have the CD's that he
autographed for me. Love his music.

Augusta Georgia's own. I use to love to hear him and his group of singers
(Richardine Holmes, Ernestine curry, Loretta Lowe, and others) when I was
growing up in Augusta. They had a local hit back then called, "I'm a Child
of the King". Boy could they sing!

@sweetmsroslyn Lol, I never noticed that before. Something definitely fell

Автор minjalewissr ( назад)
@TheGospelZone I know for sure he was in Augusta before moving to Atlanta.
His group was James Bignon and God's Children. Earnestine Curry, Richardine
Daggett, and another lady were his singers. My mom played piano for them
for a while. Earnestine, Richardine, and my mom all went to sing with the
Georgia Mass Choir when it was formed. James Bignon moved to Atlanta around
that time, but continued to be a major writer, singer, director, and
conductor for Georgia Mass for many years.

concert choir..i loved it,, we sang" he made a difference in my lfe" and
"praise him-praise the lord just because he is who he is glory and honor,
majesty belongs to him"

Автор TheGospelZone ( назад)
I know that he is originally from Georgia and I know that he operates out
of the Atlanta area today. I need to confirm that he left Georgia at some
point to move to New York before returning to Georgia. Once I get
confirmation, I'll get back to you.

Автор temptsfan2 ( назад)
Question: I recall a James Bignon who sang with his mother Eula in Augusta,
Ga during his teenage years, which I believed to be his hometown. Is the
bio info above correct?

Автор shadhom ( назад)
James always has been a awesome force in gospel music.

Автор TheElder79 ( назад)
@ThumpDr It was recorded at the former Chapel Hill Harvester Church/
Cathedral of The Holy Spirit. This facility presently is the home of The
Greater Traveler's Rest Baptist Church. It is located in Decatur, Georgia
outside Atlanta.

I have the album and absolutly love it. James and the choir are off the
chain. What a joyful noise unto the lord. Wish I knew what church it was
recorded at. I play bass and wish I could have gotten a chunk of that.
