John Edmonds thinks of himself as a message singer. “Regardless of what I’m singing, I want my presentations to always convey a message of hope, faith and love,” he says. Though he is predominantly a messenger of traditional black gospel music (“Twelve Gates to the City,” “Amazing Grace,” “Going Up Yonder,” etc.), his performances are often spiced with gospelized versions of such songs as “The Impossible Dream,” “What a Wonderful World” and “I Believe in Music.”
With more than 50 years of experience, he has been performing all over the world for audiences that have included royalty, presidents and celebrities galore. His credits include countless radio and television appearances, videos and recordings.
Edmonds performs solo (accompanying himself on piano), with a combo (his piano, plus bass guitar, lead guitar and drums) and with a combo and three additional vocalists. He is available for church concerts, stage performances, workshops, banquets, weddings and receptions. In the words of one presenter, “Whether solo, with a band, or full ensemble, John Edmonds comes highly recommended!”
