Tony has been involved in music for over 35 years and in music ministry for over 25 years. The sharing of his ministry encompasses many areas including leading worship at church services of different denominations; Christian retreats; grade school, high school and college activities; pro-life events; adult and youth conferences; as well as musically choreographing special programs. In addition, he has performed in numerous weddings, funerals, and various musical events across the Midwest as well as recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. His performances captivate his audience taking them on a journey of the soul where each song is an expression of Tony's love for God. Through his singing and playing, from fast-paced music to introspective ballads, Tony invites everyone to experience Jesus Christ in a deeper level of trust, of hope, and of love. When he's not performing Tony spends his time composing in his home studio as his music he considers part of his daily prayer. Tony's calling is to share God's message of love to anyone that God brings into his path of life. Music is just one of many avenues Tony incorporates into his ministry that enables him to serve God by serving others. Born in the Philippines and raised in Illinois, Tony currently lives in Indiana with his wife Julie and his four children Jacob, Peter, Jonathan and Maria. His family is his number one priority and gives him the inspiration to write, sing and make a "joyful noise" unto the Lord. Tony's first album titled, JourneySongs, signifies the journey we all travel on our path to salvation. As you listen to the album and read the descriptions, quotes and scripture passages on the CD cover, you will discover that it becomes a tool of ministry: one that encourages people on their walk with Christ. The album is a mix of various music styles ranging from praise and worship, to gospel, to soul, to contemporary, to meditative, to inspirational. Tony's hope in creating this album is to encourage all of God's people to open their hearts and receive the many graces and blessings that are in store for all His children.
