Michael English Career

After that, he joined a regional group, The Gospel Couriers, for about six months until he rejoined The Singing Americans. It was then that he had his first big success in southern gospel music with the live recording of what would become his signature song, “I Bowed On My Knees (And Cried, Holy)”.

His last album with the Singing Americans, Black, and White was one of their most popular. This featured a single English was fairly well known for called “Welcome To Heaven”, but the success of it was possibly stalled when he left the group in 1985 to join The Gaither Vocal Band as their new lead singer, replacing Gary McSpadden, who moved to sing baritone.

The change of groups introduced more people to the southern gospel genre. After rising to fame as a member of the Gaither Vocal Band, Bill Gaither encouraged English to pursue a solo career. He signed his first solo recording contract with Warner alliance in 1991 while continuing to sing lead in the Gaither Vocal Band.
