Brooks, a former member of the hit Gospel group, Commissioned will release his self-titled CD

Press Release Body = Brooks is best known as a member of the group, Commissioned where he wrote and produced many hit singles such as, “I’m Going On”, “So Good to Know (The Savior)” and “Love Isn’t Love.” After his departure from Commissioned in 1991, Brooks
continued a successful career behind the scenes producing artists such as the Stellar Award-winning super group, Witness, female Gospel artist, Lexi and the Stellar Award-winning L.A. Mass Choir.

Brooks also produced albums for former Commissioned member, Keith Staten, and his wife, Lisa Page Brooks who is a member of Witness. In the span of his career, Brooks has been awarded three Gospel Music Excellence Awards, a Dove Award, a Stellar Award and has received four Grammy nominations.

Michael Brooks & Royal Priesthood’s first radio single, “Nothing’s Too Hard for Him” is currently in rotation at top Gospel stations across the country. Erika Jones, Director of National Radio Promotions says, “Every day someone new calls for radio servicing. Program Directors are really excited after they hear the single, and if a station has not been serviced they want to be serviced.”

Michael Brooks Music recently signed a joint venture with Joe Langham’s Boston-based, Comin’ Atcha Music to release gospel artist, Parkes Stewart’s “Heart & Soul”, “Michael Brooks & Royal Priesthood” and other upcoming projects. Langham says, “The most astonishing thing about the collaboration that Michael and I have is that I was a huge fan of commissioned. The inspiration from their music was one of the reasons why I stayed on the straight and narrow, and I respected their ministry. I’m hoping that what I’m doing in the music industry can have an impact on others the way Michael did for me. It’s come full circle.”

Michael Brooks lives in Detroit, MI and is pastor of Restoration Ministries where Royal Priesthood is the church choir. For more information, visit www.CominAtchaMusic.com.
