Trendsetting, Billboard chart-topping producer, singer and songwriter William Becton is an artist who has garnered iconic status in Gospel music.  As one of the first “crossover” gospel artists to merge inspirational lyrics with urban sounds, Becton’s songwriting prowess proved to be a ground-breaking and bold creative innovation that propelled him to prominence.


The journey began in 1995 with his critically acclaimed debut album BROKEN.  The album peaked at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Charts for over 11 weeks. The album boasted the Gospel radio block-buster single and R&B Top 40 Radio cross-over hit “Be Encouraged.”


Throughout the years Becton would continued to write dynamic contemporary Gospel music intermingled with soul and R&B charm.  HEART OF A LOVE SONG (CGI Records/A&M) was released in 1997, and B2K: PROPHETIC SONGS OF PROMISE (CGI Records/CGI Platinum) in 2000. Both albums also soared to the Top 10 on the Billboard Gospel Albums chart, further establishing Becton’s inscription as a creative force in Gospel music.
