Michael English is, without question, among the most powerful communicators the gospel music industry has been blessed to know. Music is quite literally bred into his DNA. He learned early in life how to harmonize and communicate a song as part of a traveling musical group with his father and brother, and immediately after his high school graduation, the young North Carolina native joined The Singing Americans, where he first recorded an anthem that would become his signature song, “I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy”.
Michael joined the Gaither Vocal Band in 1985 and his soulful, power-packed voice combined with his spectacular connection with audiences quickly launched him to the forefront of the Christian music world. In spite of his battles with stage fright and frequent panic attacks, Michael’s phenomenal gift for communication birthed a thriving solo career, which grew out of the popularity he gained with the Gaither Vocal Band.
