After wowing audiences with his highly touted tenor at T.D. Jakes’ MegaFest in August, singer/songwriter Keith Williams is set to embark on a nationwide promotional tour in support of his highly anticipated national debut album TONE FOR WORSHIP available September 10 via EPM Music Group/eOne. The album is currently available for pre-order via iTunes.
Best known for his work with gospel front man Earnest Pugh, the tour will see Williams on track to visit a number of major U.S. markets including Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, Memphis, and more.
The promo trek comes on the hems of the success of “I Believe God” and “As For Me And My House” – the high-spirited praise & worship numbers elected as the lead singles of the new album. Greeted with great reception, the tunes are presently impacting gospel radio with the latter being dubbed ‘The Gospel Stepper’s Anthem’.

About Keith Williams:
Keith Williams is new to the national music scene but not new to the music industry. A former worship leader at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta where Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached and a seasoned behind-the-scenes veteran, he’s served artists as diverse as Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Holliday, Patti LaBelle and his musical collaborator and business partner, Earnest Pugh. He’s now stepped down from his position at Ebenezer to focus on his solo career and his new role as head of A&R for Pugh’s EPM Music Group. The sultry tenor’s polished, measured tones will add a new level of sophistication to the gospel music landscape and set up his forthcoming sophomore CD “Tone For Worship” (Sept 10, 2013).
