Lawrence A. Flowers, founder and visionary of Lawrence Flowers & Intercession, began singing at a very young age. His first concert was at the age of five. He began singing throughout the Jacksonville, Florida area at various churches, school functions and talent shows. That is until a particular engagement housed a Broadway singer by the name of, Roslin Burroughs. She along with a team of producers invited him to New York, where he recorded three songs for children’s sing-a-long books by Silver Burdett. At this time, he was eleven years of age. Since then he has undergone numerous transitions and achievements. He attended Florida State University, where he studied as a Musical Performance and Education Major.
He has sang in venues such as Carnegie Hall; The White House, for the President of the United States; Governor of Florida, St. Peters Bacilica, for the Pope; and The Pentagon in Washington, D.C., just to name a few. Over the years he has traveled to Milan and Italy; several continents in Trinidad, and several places in the Bahamas and has also been blessed to tour with the Boys Choir of Tallahassee, FL, while sharing the platform with gospel greats such as Dr.Bobby Jones, Pastor Shirley Ceasar, Kim Burrell, Karen Clark-Sheard, Donald Lawrence, Ted & Sherri, Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Dorinda Clark-Cole, William Murphy, Vanessa Bell-Armstrong, Pastor John P. Kee, and many more.
In the fall of 2001, God charged Lawrence to take on the responsibility of forming a music ministry to "Enter into sessions of people lives, to affect change." This ministry is comprised of a group of radical individuals that have been set out to do the will of God through song.
This ministry is known as Lawrence Flowers & Intercession, which has been in existence since 2001. The release of their single entitled "Your Love" captured the hearts of many across the country via YouTube™ and MySpace.com™. Since then, God has opened many doors for the group to ministry across the country. Their mission statement and purpose in life is truly being fulfilled as they trust God and obey His every command. The ministry encompasses levitical training and has been both ordained and dedicated as Levites unto God. The spiritual father and covering for Intercession is, Dr. John E. Guns; Pastor of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL.
Since the ministry’s existence, they have shared the stage and met with some of gospels greats such as: Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbett, Johnathan Nelson, Jason Nelson, Natalie Wilson, Zie’l, Men of Standard, Mary-Mary, Myron Butler & Levi, Donald Lawrence, Blanch McAlister, Ted & Sherri, Tobbi White-Darks, Tommie White, DeWayne Woods, Richard Smallwood, Rodney Jerkins, Warren Campbell, James Fortune, Chantae Cann, and our mother who is the “Queen of Gospel Music”, Kim Burrell.
