Gospel singer, composer, and choir leader Hezekiah Walker was born December 24, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in the Fort Greene housing projects. He formed his first gospel group, the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir, when he was in his twenties and serving as a Pentecostal minister. Walker and the choir released a pair of albums in 1987 and 1990 before Walker turned to a solo career, releasing Focus on Glory in 1992. A year later he released Live in Toronto, which proved to be his breakthrough, and the album hit the top of the gospel charts. Forming another choir, this one called the Love Fellowship Tabernacle Church Choir, Walker continued to release albums recorded live on the church circuit, including Live in Atlanta at Morehouse College in 1994, Hezekiah Walker Presents the LFT Church Choir in 1998, Family Affair in 1999, and Love Is Live! in 2001. Along the way Walker brought a lot of young people to gospel and choir music, and has shown he has no problem using modern vernacular and recording techniques to expand his fan and worship base. Souled Out appeared in 2008, followed by Azusa: The Next Generation in 2013, both from Verity Records. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
