Dr. Mark A. Williams is a multi-faceted man who is an expert in the medical field, has a prolific musical ability and is anointed for ministering with an unstoppable determination and love for God.
He is a board certified Otolaryngologist with a thriving surgical practice – The Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists of Nashville located in Nashville, TN. In addition to his private surgical practice, he is an adjunct assistant professor at Meharry Medical College and founded the Voice Care Center of Nashville where he specializes in treating and preventing voice problems in Christian and Gospel music artists.
Williams is also a songwriter, Worship leader and Gospel recording artist which gives him a profound insight to not only the medical and surgical implications of voice disturbances, but also the many spiritual impacts. Williams combines his skillset and passion using every opportunity to treat voice problems and educate on vocal care and has even creatively done so in his instructional DVD UNDERSTANDING YOUR VOICE, YOUR INSTRUMENT. His many exceptional skillsets and talents affords the ideal mechanisms for Merging Music, Ministry and Medicine.
“I have been given tremendous favor in opportunities to educate the body of Christ on the importance of the voice – not just for singers but for every believer,” expresses Williams. Williams has facilitated workshops and been featured at Gospel Announcers Guild Conventions, Beyond Potential Music Gathering, I.M.A.C.Conference, Bobby Jones Gospel, TCT TV, Airplay 360 Ezine and served as on-call voice doctor for The Dove Awards. The primary goal for Williams is the education of singers, preachers and speakers in proper vocal technique and voice hygiene to help prevent the development of voice problems and ultimately enhance the worship experience.
Along with being a physician, a songwriter, lecturer, worship leader and elder at his home church Oasis Worship Center, most significantly, Williams is a husband and father to which there is a divine balance. “I have a wife and three children who love the Lord and understand the call of God on my life,” Williams adoringly states. “More importantly, they celebrate and not simply tolerate the calling.”
Williams is first and foremost the priest of his home and without reservation will sacrifice for his family. “Lord knows my commitment to my family and that I would not do anything to compromise the health of my family,” he explains. “God is not glorified if I leave my first ministry poorly attended to for the sake of ministry outside the home to strangers.”
Williams is loyal to his family, is a meticulous medical expert and is passionate about his music ministry.
Through his growing music ministry, Williams released his first nationally distributed album EVERYTHING in 2011 on his own independent record label ATAP Music Group. EVERYTHING showcases Williams’ enthusiastic love for Praise and Worship via his gospel radio hit “King Of Glory” and introduced his smooth crooning vocals to his growing fan base with the Smooth Jazz title track “Everything”.
EVERYTHING garnered Williams three 2012 Rhythm of Gospel Awards – Worship/Praise Artist of the Year, Praise and Worship Song of the Year (“The King of Glory”), and Male Traditional Vocalist of the Year. Williams also captured a prestigious 2012 Gospel Music City Award for Contemporary New Artist of the Year. The Annual Gospel Music City Awards honors talent, pastors and gospel industry leaders in the Nashville, TN area.
Continuing to refine and offer more prominence to his smooth tenor Jazz bravura, Williams will release a new project in 2016 WHEN A MAN WORSHIPS. His all new project was introduced in February with a special Valentine’s Day single release “My Life, My Love, My Friend”. WHEN A MAN WORSHIPS has special appearances by Darwin Hobbs and San Franklin-Jackson.
