Born in Atlanta, Georgia in November, raised in North West Atlanta Bankhead Court, Christian Artist Tony Amey when asked, “What inspired him to sing”? Answered jokingly, “Have you seen Bankhead Court, I had to do something to get out of there, but seriously, I grew up singing. When I was a boy my mother would gather the seven of us together and we’d have house service (church) my mother, who had a beautiful singing voice herself, would read Bible scriptures to us and explain them. We’d all sing songs and pray. I suppose somewhere along the way the singing stuck, so much so that at eight years old, I wrote my first song. Laughingly, “Don’t even as me to sing it, I don’t remember the words or the melody”.
After asking, Tony “What are you looking to do in the Christian music industry”. He replies, “Writing and producing while being an artist, I’m going to add more souls to the Kingdom of God through my music, and he excitedly adds, Christ has been touching souls already, through my CD titled “Broken” and also through the outreach street ministry my family, friends and I do every summer through fall in local communities throughout Atlanta. Dreamily, he says, “Imagine the spirit that would be poured out on a national or international level. I understand that no man or woman is an island unto him or herself, I know I need Gods’ help through man to make this happen.
Do you have experience in the music industry, Tony? Yes, but that was for the other side, he laughs. I was one of the lead singers in the group “A Few Good Men” back in the early to mid 1990’s. We were signed to LaFace Records; we did international tours, performed on Soul Train, BET and a host of other television shows. I’ve done shows with Monica, Lavert, the Ojays and others. I’ve worked with Artist such as Usher, Toni Braxton and TLC, also I sang background on Bobbie Brown and Whitney Houston single, “Something In Common”. Well before I was ever signed I was part of an opening act for an R Kelly concert.
Wow, how do you feel about having worked with such prestigious acts? Singing R&B was fun back then, but this isn't just about singing it’s fulfilling and purpose driven, I really want to share it, and my testimonies with the world to help somebody and win souls for the Kingdom because Jesus did the Most Prestigious Act of all
