Jim White - Soloist/Executive Producer
Jim White has been singing for as long as he can remember. His mother was a professional singer/pianist who sang just about everything. “She was my greatest influence musically and encouraged me to sing. She taught me to appreciate all types of music .
Jim was bitten by the R&B/soul bug at eleven years old when he bought his first album “Dance ‘til Quarter To Three” by Gary “U.S.” Bonds. "I played that album until the vinyl wore out", says White. "After that it was James Brown, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett and so many others. Today I still lean toward R&B but I also love folk, Celtic (yes Celtic), blues, pop standards and of course, gospel”.
Jim began singing professionally when he was fifteen and really hasn’t stopped. He is also a filmmaker and does voice-overs for radio and television, working from his home-studio for clients all over the U.S. In 2000, after years of producing other peoples’ work he recorded his first solo CD called Hearts of Fire. In 2006 he released a CD titled “Songs My Mother Sang” - available on this website, and produced the Divas new CD “Gospel Is Not A Spectator Sport!”. He will be returning to the studio soon to record a new CD based on the music of T-Bone Walker.
“I love singing Gospel. I love connecting with audiences, and I am thrilled to part of this very special group”.
