Meet the Artist
America voted for their favourite singer, and 20-year-old Geoffrey Golden was crowned the season seven winner of BET Sunday Best. Golden won the hearts of America and favour with celebrity judges due to his professional demeanour, stature, humility, and anointing that were evident throughout all of his performances on the show.
In high school, the passion he had for music ministry really took off. He served as the Student Director for the Cleveland Heights Gospel Choir and along with writing, arranging and teaching music, he was also the featured soloist. During that time, while traveling with the choir, he amazed audiences all over the country with his powerful voice and the display of his unapologetic love for the Lord.
It was also during his high school years where he became the Coordinator of Praise and Worship at his home church, Glenville. At that time, he cultivated his passion for the "Presence and People of God." Having a desire to promote gospel/Christian music and a spirit of unity in Cleveland, particularly among his peers, it was laid on Golden's heart to organize a City-Wide Youth Choir Explosion in 2010. The event was met with so much success, it has become the annual Cleveland Worship Weekend, a highly anticipated conference held close to the new year which now includes worships and community service activities.
On becoming a nationally recognized Gospel Artist, Golden says winning the competition has brought him from a place of expectation to reality. When he rededicated his life to the Lord at the age of twelve, he wanted "to know God and to make Him known" and this has become his life's mission. Golden states "I know God told me that there was a thing he would do in my life and He was going to use me. Some of those things that He's placed in me would go out into the world. Now I'm really walking in the promise of the thing that He said He would do. So moving from promise to performance is what I think it means to me more than anything."
