No Turning Back
True dedication, the rev. Robert Houston has always thought, is necessary for ministry. He began living his dream at an early age. At 15yrs old he served as an organist at the west pittsburg c.o.g.i.c where he was raised in pittsburg calif. After playing for various choirs, he began composing songs and later the group 'true dedication'. shortly after he connected with covenant records and released his first album 'one life too live' the project produced enough sales for the second album 'satisfied' featuring a remake of sly and the family stone's 'you can make it if you try' at the omer awards, kasas city's gospel awards ceremony, Houston was nominated in four categories-song of the year (moving up) best gospel choir of the year, best producer of the year and won the award for best gospel CD of the year 2001. Performing experience includes 12 television appearances including the ptl show, 'all night sing' and t.v. talent hour on networks such as turner broadcasting, pax broadcasting, and warner brothers. The group was chosen to perform in donnie McClurkins new artist showcase which included seminars taught by kirk franklin, marvin sapp, ronald winans, frank breeden and theresa hairston. The CD 'no turning back' is considered by many as a spiritual blessing.
