To praise Him is a privilege. To sing His name, an honor.
To love Him, the greatest thing we will ever know!
SpokenFor is one of the most prolific gospel ministries to ever grace the stages of Texas churches and abroad. With a mix of classic southern gospel, contemporary Christian, and country gospel music, SpokenFor brings a feeling of change to every place they sing. There's more than just the music in their concerts, and folks who attend will tell you that! There's a part of every concert that leaves you wanting more. You can feel the Spirit move as they speak.
Pianist Randy Wills, pianist and husband of founding member Dawn Wills brings his own dynamic talent and many, many years of experience to SpokenFor! Randy has had a life-long career in music, being a producer, arranger, writer, studio musician, and performer in many different venues. He has been a Worship Pastor in several churches over the past 23 years, and currently serves at a church in Rockwall, Texas. Randy is President of the Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and serves several southern gospel organizations. SpokenFor benefits immensely from his incredible music experience and ability, and also gets to enjoy his '4th part' background vocals. Randy came on board to join SpokenFor in May 2006 and the group is thankful to God for sending him their way. He has 2 grown children who are gifted musically.
Randy's wife, Dawn Wills, was born in Dallas, Texas. She began playing guitar and singing at eight years old.
She can remember longing to serve God in music and was determined to turn her classical music training into her own style of Christian/Gospel music. After high school, Dawn attended SMU, graduating with a Fine Arts Degree and a minor in Music. After college, She performed as a folk singer/guitarist until the Lord blessed her with the unique experience of traveling overseas to perform and minister in churches and prisons. She has been a guitar instructor for many years, encouraging her students to become music leaders in praise and worship. Dawn has three children, all of whom are talented musicians! Sharing what Christ has done for her and inspiring others through music is one of her greatest joys.
Vicki Miller was born and raised in Garland, Texas. Her husband, Jay, and she have three children. She began singing as a young girl, performing throughout her school years in both school and church. She began her career in music performing in contests and ensembles and singing in churches. Although Vicki won first place in a local Star Search Contest in 1995, her first love has always been Southern Gospel music. She has ministered through music in many capacities. God has given her a tender heart for those who have lost loved ones. Her desire is that God reach out and touch lives. Vicki's prayer is that people receive a personal touch from God through the music God has given her and SpokenFor to share.
Charisse Jones grew up in Garland, Texas listening to her dad's Southern Gospel trio and learning to sing close harmonies. Through her youth she sang in church and took advantage of opportunities to travel on mission trips spreading the gospel through song with her youth choir. During the 80s and 90s, Charisse sang and performed with the Plummer Family Country Music Show in
Branson, Missouri. The group performed in the theatre for most of the year and travelled throughout the United States during the winter months playing and singing country and gospel music. On returning to Texas, Charisse and her husband, Gary, had two beautiful daughters, Haley and Jaynie, who are both musically gifted. After taking a hiatus from music for several years to raise a family and complete her education, Charisse is excited to reunite with Dawn and Vicki who are long-time friends. She is anticipating that God will use SpokenFor in a mighty way to minister to God's people through music.
