The Williams Brothers: Live at the Hard Rock Part 1 recorded in Biloxi, MS is a historical project as this is the first time a Gospel Artist would grace the stage of one of 149 Hard Rocks in over 53 countries around the world as headliners. A full production accompanied by their band, horn and stringed orchestra, lit up the auditorium. No opening acts, no flow-breaking intermissions, and no retakes. Just ninety minutes of nonstop celebration and praise with classics like “I’ll Take You There”, “My Sweet Lord”, “Amazing Grace”, etc. The venue was completely sold out – standing room only - and the energy level was so elevated that for the duration of the concert the audience rarely made use of their seats. Always bridging the gap between traditional and contemporary Gospel music, Melvin Williams infuses a blend of gospel, soul, jazz, hip-hop, mainstream and classical songs. His high-level energy and emotion filled performances is guaranteed to bring audiences to their feet. Williams is known to jump off the stage, go into the audience, stand on chairs at festivals, and summon the audience to join him for a praise party – regardless of race, creed or color. “Neighbor, may I have this dance?” - and the holy ghost party begins! Williams’ distinctive, raspy vocal tone established him as one of the most recognized and sought-after artist featured on various songs by traditional and contemporary artists.
