Byron Cage

With over 20 years experience as a praise and worship leader, and numerous awards and accolades for his recordings, Byron Cage is one of Gospel music’s most dynamic and popular artists. Cage’s delivery is punctuated by a deep sincerity that enraptures audiences and has made the Grammy Award nominee and multiple Stellar Award winner a staple in Gospel’s musical landscape. After attending Morehouse College in Atlanta, Cage joined New Birth Cathedral; he is currently the praise and worship leader at both New Birth and Ebenezer A. M. E. in Maryland. Cage rose to fame with the 2003 release of his self-titled GospoCentric debut that spawned his mega-hit “The Presence of the Lord,” netting five Stellar Awards and the Soul Train Music Award for Best Gospel Album. An Invitation to Worship was released in 2005, peaking at number two on the Billboard Gospel chart and earning Cage his first Grammy nomination. His most recent release, The Proclamation, was recorded live on April 26, 2007, at the Apollo Theater.
