You Raise Me Up

Performed by
Leon Williams

 

To hear an accomplished classical singer who has won major competitions and graced stages from Carnegie Hall to The St. Petersburg Philharmonic in Russia wrap his voice around these great songs is a little like finding a gold mine.  Baritone Leon Williams was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in Honolulu, Hawaii where he assists in leading worship at First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu at Koolau.

Leon has earned a fine reputation on several continents for his warm, handsome voice, charismatic personality and impassioned interpretations of vocal works from the cantatas and passions of J.S. Bach to premieres of works by contemporaries, William Bolcom, Stephen Flaherty, Charles Wuorinen, John Musto, Lee Hoiby and Harold Farberman.
