All through his childhood, in Alexandria, Louisiana, Will sang in church choirs and ensembles.. he even played in the school band. But his heart was always drawn to singing Gospel. In his first time out, in the musical theatre arena, he won a starring role in the Arts Club production of Ann Mortifee’s tour de force, ‘When the Rains Come’. He was even nominated for a Jessie Richardson Award for Best Performance in a Musical that year (1994). He also went on to star in the Arts Club production of ‘Five Guys Name Moe’. Over the years, Will has sung with a number of Vancouver based Gospel ensembles: ‘Circle Of Voices’, ‘Cloud Nine’ and ‘The Gospel Experience’. He is now a member of the Gospel group, ‘The Sojourners.’
