Guest Musician Mickale Jones in Worship on Pentecost Sunday
Mickale grew up in Roseland, California. Seeing the violence and gang activity in the area inspired him to work to make a difference in his town. He started writing music in 2004, recording parodies of popular songs. He started writing more serious songs in late 2007 and adopted the name Tru Lyric. After meeting a few classmates also interested in making Christian positive music, they formed the group "Split Mic". They started recording their first album in early 2009. Halfway through the album, the studio they were recording at closed down. The group slowly started to go separate ways in early 2010 after graduating from high school.
Mickale continued writing music and met Aurie Tillis halfway through the summer of 2010. He started recording in Aurie's studio and was led to take the next step by creating his first solo album "The Tru Direction". The album released on March 10, 2011. After the album released he went on to perform at different places all over California while working on his free mix tape "The Day Shift". Mickale is currently working on his second album titled "Speak Up" set to release July 16th 2013. Following the album release, he and his team will be traveling all over California, Texas, and Hawaii for three weeks to spread the message that God has given him.
