“Do you remember that feeling you get when you first fall in love with someone? Your heart is beating heavily and you just can’t keep still. You do everything in your power to remember what took place when you were together and your whole existence revolves around that love relationship. You can’t wait to be in their presence. That’s the feeling I would like the audience to have about Jesus when they listen to my music.”

A native Washingtonian, Michael White, was groomed in the church. The son of a preacher, he carefully watched his father declare the Word as he preached throughout Northern Virginia. During this time, he developed a desire for music and he began singing with his father at age five. When he saw the need for a church musician, Michael prayed that God would give him the gift. God answered his prayer and at eight, he trained himself to play by ear. That was just the beginning of his love for music.



Who I Am

“Most songs of worship are birthed out of my private time with the Lord. When you spend time in the presence of God, He will sing over you with joy. As a worship leader, it’s simply the anointing of God that allows me to write and sing songs that will lead others into God’s presence.”




Michael has recorded with Patrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music, Minister Freda Battle, Jeff Jacobs, Toby Palmer & Chosen Generation and Phillip Carter & The Sounds Of Victory. He has also ministered with recording artists Kirk Franklin, Darius Brooks, Gaye Arbuckle.

Michael was afforded an opportunity to have one of his songs “Great and Marvelous God” released on Troy Sneed’s “My Heart Says Yes” CD in 2011 and Minister Freda Battle’s “How Glorious and Excellent” CD in 2012. “Bless the Name of the Jesus”, one of Michael’s praise and worship anthems, was a featured song and radio single for the Stellar Award winning Earl Bynum and the Mount Unity Choir 2013 release.

As a singer, songwriter, praise and worship leader, and musician, Michael is passionate about God’s people, and about proclaiming God’s Word through song. This passion is readily apparent as he travels across the country proclaiming his message of inspiration, hope and assurance. He also serves as the Minister of Music of Reid Temple’s North campus in Silver Spring, MD.
