Few gospel groups can equal the Williams Brothers in terms of longevity and popularity. The trio dates back to 1960, when Doug and Melvin’s father, the late Leon “Pop” Williams founded the group. In April 1991, Melvin, Henry and Doug decided to merge musical talent with industry expertise to form their own label dedicated to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ through anointed music. As a result, Blackberry Records was born.
Blackberry Records’ first release, “This Is Your Night,” received a Grammy nomination in the category of Best Soul Gospel Album and won two Stellar Awards. Since that time, the Brothers have earned a gold record for the WOW Gospel project that included their performance with Stevie Wonder, and have performed in some of the nation’s most prestigious concert halls, including: Madison Square Garden, The Apollo Theatre, Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, The Grand Old Opry, The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and The House of Blues.
