I Greet You In The Name Of My Lord And Savior Jesus Christ
"The very first memory in my life is me going to church with my Grandmother and Grandfather Parker. I think I was maybe four or five. Me in a big boy suit and tie - and no complaining now about that. Grandma wouldn't hear of it. Winfield Albert Parker was cleaned and pressed from head to toe. Indeed, we all had to be presentable to the Lord. No matter what was going on, no matter if two feet of snow was on the ground, we were going to church. Let me tell you. This was every Sunday, and I mean every Sunday.
Sunday was the Lord's Day, and I knew that real well growing up. I mean, the Lord God was planted in me like Granddaddy planted his turnips and potatoes - down deep, tight in the ground, protected so to grow in the rich soil to produce a beautiful crop. Jesus was the foundation inside of me. He was planted inside me. He knew me and loved me always - even when I really didn't know Him. Once Jesus is inside you, planted inside of you - once you meet Jesus - you'll never be the same." Your Brother In Christ, Winfield
Winfield Parker grew up with gospel music filling his life. From Sunday family gatherings reading from the Holy Bible and singing "Amazing Grace" to performing on stage with such Gospel luminaries as Mother Albertina Walker, Luther Barnes, Soul Stirrers, Jackson Southernaires. Lee Williams and the Williams Brothers. This was his calling. His calling from the Lord God was so firmly planted inside him from an early age. "If I can reach one - just one person with my music ministry - my work will have been done."
His path in music wasn't always to the Lord. Winfield was like many teens attracted to singing popular music, or rock and roll, back then. "I had a gift -- I could play a mean sax, now. Even at a young age, I was on the road playing my sax and touring worldwide with Little Richard's band. My manager back then saw that I could sing, too. So he started me opening for a number of groups. I could tear it up, you hear? I was blessed to perform on stage with the best - the Temptations, Four Tops, Lloyd Price, Chuck Jackson. And those are just a few. My life was great, I was making a name for myself, I was on top of the world.
But God wants you to see His glorious light, and keep your eyes opened and focused on Him. Not everyone allows this to happen. Some people - even me back then -- were blinded by His light. His light is a beacon to direct you in His path. It took me some time to see and understand this. But I dedicated myself to reading the Word, and praise the Lord, I saw His beacon of light and allowed it to direct my path. I was no longer blinded by it. This is something I stress to young people. To understand how we view God's light. You can see it negatively, as blinding, or see His light as a beacon to direct you to His glorification. A long time ago, I redirected my God-given gift of voice to singing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And, I have never wavered from that promise to my Lord God, perfect Savior."
Winfield's has given his life to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His earnest work has resulted in God blessing him to guide him in the formation of his record label, BP Records, Inc., and publishing company, Monterlav Publishing, Inc. Winfield has composed and arranged numerous gospel works in his catalogue, all included in seven widely recognized and in-demand albums, including his most recent 2005 release, "Miracle."
Winfield is honored and blessed by friendships such as Jeff Majors, Radio One, Billy Daniels, Sheridan Gospel Network, Patrick Ellis and Jacquie Gales-Webb of WHUR, Washington DC; Pastor Lee Michaels and Brad Rogers of Heaven 600AM, Baltimore; Ms. Ollie Williams of Glory 98.5, Florence, SC; Frank K, WWDR, Murfreesboro, NC; and the late Ray Edwards, WOL, Washington DC - all of whom have been inspirational and supportive to Winfield Parker's gospel journey. Most importantly, Winfield has been so very blessed by the love and support of his beautiful ladies of "Praise" - Sarah Parker, Emily Watson, and Vanessa Hunter. The Lord has blessed each with God-given voices.
Winfield's rewards along the way have resulted in God's blessing to guide him in the formation of his own record label, Bp Records, Inc., and publishing company, Monterlav Publishing. Winfield has composed and arranged numerous gospel works in his catalogue, all included in seven widely recognized and in demand albums.
"Miracle" - an astonishingly brilliant, moving and soulful gospel return to Winfield's roots. It is unlike no other gospel work. "Miracle" is Winfield's testimony to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who through Him, 'all things were, are, and will continue to be possible.' Winfield expresses the miracles in his life through the brilliantly Sigler produced and written hit single, "Miracle" - and is firm in his affirmation that Jesus provides in His time, and that He is truly his personal guide.
It is with love and joy in his heart for the Lord that Winfield Parker has delivered a spiritual rejuvenation and inspiration to so many. May we all continue to be inspired by his faith and love of Christ.
