A gospel singer born and raised in Houston, TX, veteran recording artist Beau Williams has several albums to his credit, along with a number of background vocal appearances. Having grown up in a musical and religious family -- his father was a pastor, his mother was a choir leader, and his seven siblings choir members -- one of Williams' earliest realizations of his skills came after winning a talent competition at the age of ten.
Williams eventually relocated to Los Angeles in search of stardom and was discovered by George Benson, who helped him land a recording contract with Capitol. He competed on Star Search shortly after the release of his first record and dethroned a longtime champion. After his third Capitol release, Williams signed with Light and returned to his roots in gospel. Summing up ten of his career highlights in the gospel field, The Best of Beau Williams was issued in 1995.
