Antonio is originally from St. Louis, Mo. and now resides in Wilton Manors, FL. His father was a minister, as was both of his grandfathers. His grandmother was a choir director and his mother was the lead vocalist in the choir. There was no avoiding becoming a singer in church. It was all around him. After many years working in corporate America and customer service, Antonio decided to move to New York City to pursue singing as a career. He worked as a contract musician singing for weddings, dinner dances, Broadway showcases, and corporate events. After visiting many times, he decided to make the move to south Florida to again pursue singing full-time in paradise.
Antonio was introduced to Science of Mind over 25 years ago in Dallas, TX where he was the lead vocalist. After moving to New York City, he became involved with Unity Church of New York as a member of the Voices In Unity choir as well as a soloist and a member of the world renowned vocal group Spiritus. Antonio is very excited to be the new Music Director for CSL Fort Lauderdale and looks forward to many Sundays filled with great music and moving messages. Check out www.cslftlauderdale.org.
