Byron Cage

Byron Cage is an American gospel recording artist. Born: December 15, 1962 , Grand Rapids, MI Byron Cage - Goodbye Breathe--Byron Cage
Byron Cage spent his childhood, growing up in a small town in Michigan, where his exceptional musical gifts appeared to those around him very early in deed. His mother noticed that Byron, who seldom cried, preferred to hum some unknown melodies to himself as a baby, to amuse himself. His mom would say, “Listen to him! He’s just singin’ away!” So, it’s not surprising to find out that his first solo in church happened when he was only 4 years old. Besides singing, Cage played the sax throughout his teenage years. In his later teen years, he self-taught himself to play the keyboard, becoming pretty proficient. At the age of 13, Byron and his family moved to Detroit, where he became a member of Greater Grace Temple which was a great place to not only spiritually grow in the Lord, but also proved to be a nurturing environment for developing musical gifts of their members. Besides Byron Cage, Fred Hammond and several other young men who later wound up forming the Gospel group, COMMISSIONED, all attended and were involved in the music ministry at Greater Grace Temple. Byron Cage became a vocal soloist and the church’s youth choir director.
Byron Cage was offered a full music scholarship to Morehouse College in Atlanta. This opportunity to be educated with the techniques, mechanics, and theory of music making, further strengthened his considerable musical gifts, which he put into practice when yet another opportunity to become a music director opened to him. While in Atlanta, Byron Cage became the music director of a small, but vibrant church, New Birth. While Cage was musical director, the church grew from 700 members to 16,000! In 1998, Byron Cage moved to Fort Washington, to become the Senior Minister of Church Worship and Music at the Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church. Besides serving at this large A.M.E. Church, Cage also serves as the international minister of music for Bishop Paul Morton’s full Gospel Baptist Fellowship, a major organization of Baptist churches.
