Many may say he’s too young to have such an old soul, but you’ll see in just a matter of time that his gifts along with his old soul, will bring joy and love to the young and wise, all around the world. Josiah LP Spencer, born in Baltimore to parents whose love for music added to his already unique musical talents in so many ways.  His love for gospel and jazz and soul now lead him to listen to musicians of all genres. 
 
He has performed with one of Baltimore’s top community choirs, Singing Sensations Youth Choir, with whom he had the honor to perform with artists such as Kiki Sheard, and  Melba Moore, thanks to the great leadership of Dr. Hollie Hood Mincy. He has been inspired by artists such as Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Maurette Brown Clark, and an array of other gospel greats.
 
Josiah LP Spencer is only 12 years old and in the seventh grade, but he has been called to do greater and bigger things through his love for his music and love for people young and wise.
