Vol. 1-Music of Isiah Baldwin
The Music of Isiah Baldwin, Vol. I I am a native Chicagoan and I was lead to the Church of God in Christ since 1975. I am a music teacher by profession and I have taught and practiced music to hundreds of people for a long time. I've written and arranged music for several of Chicago's finest in the gospel music, such as Pastor Donald Alford, Elder Carliss Moody Jr. and the Hardy Brothers. My main instrument is saxophone but I am a composer and arranger. This current CD, is one that I could not rest on any longer. The project gives vent to two other talents in the person of Antoinette McClellan-Brown, a veteran singer in the gospel community and Daquan Williams, an excellent young talent. The CD. entitled,"The Music of Isiah Baldwin, Vol. I", is a collection of arrangements, for the glory of the Lord and, for music lovers. Something different in this package is that, I do a bit of singing on the project. Antoinette and DaQuan are singing to the glory of the Lord and, I try to put tasteful arrangements with their gifts. Antoinette is the kind of vocalist that makes you listen to every word of any song, no matter how simple or complex the song may be. She has a captivating voice. DaQuan is an unbelievable singer. He is only ten years old and sings all of the time, as freely as I have ever heard any of the veteran vocalist, he is on his way to great things and I am glad to work with him. I am a part of the music staff of Apostle Richard D. Henton of the Monument of Faith Church. The Apostle's ministry keeps me so inspired to reach out to people with my gifts and talent. He teaches that "your gift is for someone else", and I agree and believe and say Amen! My prayer is that everyone will purchase and enjoy the CD.
