Meet Gospel Dream Winner Tony LeBron
Born in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, the 2nd of four children, Tony grew up in Orlando, Fl attending a small Spanish church where he was introduced to the traditional music of his Puerto Rican heritage, music that would later impact his life so powerfully. At the age of ten, Tony sang his first solo, "He's Still Working on Me" and by the age of 15 was active in his church as a Worship Leader. After graduating high school Tony attended Southeastern University, performing with premier musical group Joy as well as leading the Campus Worship Choir. It was during his time there that he was introduced to Roger Breland and the touring musical group TRUTH of which he went on to be a part of the Farewell Tour. Following his time in TRUTH, Tony moved to Nashville where he sang background vocals for Female Vocalist of the Year, Natalie Grant, toured with the Promise Keeper Praise Team, and partnered with a broad range of nationally acclaimed artists including Anthony Evans, Melissa Greene (Avalon) and The Katinas. He has also spent time ministering along side Jeanne Mayo during her National Youth Leaders Convention and has been a guest Worship Leader at the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Most recently Tony beat out of thousands of contestants to win Gospel Music Channel's American Idol Style competition Gospel Dream.
Tony's passion for worship has involved him in outreach and missions projects all around the world visiting such countries as India, Costa Rica, Poland and Peru. It was on one of those trips that Tony's world reached a turning point. "I'll never forget seeing the faces of the children; children that had nothing. I so desperately wanted to go back to the states sell everything I owned and return and give them the money. Then I realized that even the wealthiest people in the world are miserable. Money is not the answer. The only thing that I could give them that would really make a difference was to share with them the Love of Christ. Love that never fails, Love that never disappoints, Love that does not abandon, Love that is forever; Love that Saves! I knew then that I wanted to spend the rest of my life sharing the Love of Christ, through whatever means possible."
This is the means and this is the time. Tony LeBron's debut album is a manifestation of the calling on his life and you can't help but know it's true once you turn it on and turn it up. Meet Tony LeBron.
