Maurice Griffin set out to expand a new phase of his music career after capturing the attention of a nation as a finalist on season two of BET’s Sunday Best Gospel competition television show. Since then, the powerhouse vocalist and passionate worshipper has elevated his music ministry to a global audience, all as an independent and self-managed artist.
The Chicago native released a debut project I AM SOMEBODY in 2011, which sold over 11,000 units independently and this summer released an EP BELIEVER that boasts the contemporary worship ballad and radio single “Hear Us”. Maurice is now launching his 2014 MY HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS TOUR Nov 21 – Dec 31 delivering the good news of our Saviors birth via inspirational holiday music throughout the U.S. The tour will feature music from his MY HOLIDAY Christmas CD and some of Maurice’s favorite and popular gospel songs.
“The MY HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS TOUR is my gift to all,” Maurice shares. “It is my favorite time of the year and this tour is a way for me to give back to the community and the country that has supported my music ministry over the past few years.” He continues, “I chose to give back in this way during all my concerts and am excited to do so, because I was once myself homeless and without. I pray everyone shares this tour and Christmas CD with me as a gift of love and happiness for their family and friends to enjoy each and every year.”
With Christmas classics “Christ Is Born” and contemporary tunes “What A Holiday” the tour and the MY HOLIDAY CD allows Maurice to showcase his classical vocal abilities and mix in a twist or two. He will be crisscrossing the country on the MY HOLIDAY CHRISTMAS TOUR touching down in Colorado, Illinois, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, New York, Missouri and Oklahoma.
In addition to touring and promoting his new Believer EP, Maurice continues to run his own music production company; M.G.M. Chicago Music Group; a company that specializes in musical productions and events.
