Maurice Griffin – I Am Somebody – 1 Peter 2:9 IN STORES NOW


New crop of young artists are making noise and names in gospel music. This
particular seed is a dynamic worship leader Maurice Griffin. This 24 year old rising
star will debut his group CD ‘I Am Somebody: I Peter 2:9’ through his own
independent label M G M Chicago Music Group.

Griffin wrote and produced all eleven of the songs on this heart?felt praise and
worship project. Griffin calls his style “Urban Praise/Inspirational.” Among the
standouts is the anthem “Praise Offering” and the reverential “Rain on Me.”
However, the song that stands out for Griffin is “Pour Out Your Spirit.” Griffin says,
“There’s a line that states, ..For me to live is Christ.’ That means a lot to me
because Christ is the only answer to all of our problems.”

While a student at Kankakee High School, age 15, Griffin joined the professional
youth choir, New Direction. Throughout his 10 year career with the New Direction,
He became one of the urban choir’s primary soloists on songs such as “Hold On,
Two Wings, and Holy.” He’s also toured with gospel artist VaShawn Mitchell,
served as a primary background session singer for Bobby Jones’ “Next Generation”
tapings for the Gospel Music Channel and sung background on Dorinda Clark-
Cole’s “The Rose of Gospel” CD that featured the smash hit, “So Many Times.”

Griffin was featured on Bobby Jones Artist Retreat Reunion live in Las Vegas, NV
by songwriter V. Michael McKay, who wrote ‘The Battle is the Lords’, one of the
premier songs that put Yolanda Adams on the charts. Griffin has won many
competitions such as the G.M.W.A. Gospel Treasure, Dorinda Clark-Cole’s Singers
and Musicians ‘Best Male Vocalist’ of the Year, and recently seen as a finalist on
2009 BET Sunday’s Best.

For the new CD I Am Somebody: I Peter 2:9, Griffin says the message is clear and

says. “Everybody is somebody and through Christ, our dreams can and will
