ABOUT KEVIN WARD:
Kevin Ward grew up in an army family and was quickly influenced by music. His mother was a soulful church singer. He was also influenced by the sounds of R&B, and he was blessed with a natural ear for music. Ironically, Kevin never sang in church out of fear that he was not good enough. After several mishaps, struggles with depression, and even attempts at suicide, Kevin gave his life to Christ on a Sunday morning as a result of a simple hug given to him by a church usher. While participating in a freestyle Bible verse game at church, he eventually caught the eye of New Hope International Ministries' musical arts director and recording artist, Jacob Poole. Before he knew it, he was one of the worship leaders for the church's praise and worship team. Characterized by a very energetic style of praise, Kevin quickly gained an appreciation and passion for praise and worship. Kevin is the 2015 winner of the American Family Insurance Your Dream Is Out There Gospel Sensations Contest. He is a graduate of Fort Valley State University as well as Capella University, where he received his Master's Degree in Human Services. With all of this, he is also a Worship Leader at Southside Baptist Church in Warner Robins Georgia. In 2017, Shawn Christopher and The Christopher Entertainment Agency signed Kevin to a management contract and within a year, signed to SIX19 Music which is distributed by Dream Label Group/Capitol Christian Distribution. Kevin strives to maintain a sense of humility and hunger for Christ through genuine and heart filled worship with one goal in mind, to simply lift up God's name and spread his love to all ages, races, genders, and cultures.
