This CD has an Inspirational, Uplifting, Gospel/Christian Contemporary feel that will take your soul to high heights. Genise Williams was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She started singing at the age of 5 years old on her church choir. Her mom kept her grounded in church and focus on singing. Genise use to sing for all of her moms company and became the topic of conversation around town. She started singing on a lot of school programs and was given solo parts on her choir. By the time she was 13 she started singing with her 2 cousins and they called themselves the Randle Singers. They continued to sing for a couple of years until they decided it was time to move on. At the age of 19 she began singing R&B with 2 guys and formed a group called MNG. The group lasted for 2 years because Genise went in the U.S. Army. A year and a half later her and 2 other young ladies formed a group called Bold Display while stationed in Germany. The group had the opportunity to travel to different parts of Germany and perform. They could have made it big, but the military caused the group to come to a regretful end. Genise returned to the United States and at that time she met a female with the same passion for music as her. They decided to put their singing and writing abilities together and called themselves LaNiece. The group performed all over in places like New York (Apollo Theater), California (music Conference), North Carolina, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and even Germany. LaNiece released a CD single called My Ambition that did ok but didn\'t do as well as they would have liked. Although they continued to grow the group came to a bitter end because of Managerial differences. At that point in Genise life she gave music a break. It took about 2 years after the group split for Genise to realize her true calling was to go back to where she started. God called her to do his work, to sing, write, and testify to his people. It took all the groups, test, trials, deceit, pain, and friendships to get her to this point in her life. Genise is releasing her first gospel CD this summer 2008. She looks forward to spreading Gods word all over the world. At the age of 15 Genise was given her first acting role in a stage play. She continued to participate in school plays until she graduated. Although she enjoyed acting she focused more on music and gave acting a break until recently. In 2007 and 2008, Genise was featured in a stage play in Baltimore, Md called The Ressurrection of Christ. She enjoyed this play so much that she decided to audition for another play, and was given a starring role in a play called Who Your Daddy? Make sure you look out for her in other upcoming plays.
