Having her in my life has brought new meaning and I pray it is a testament that encourages others to continue their pursuit of love”, says Dray Tate.

About Dray Tate
Dray’s musical journey did not begin with The Williams Brothers, however. Born in Houston, TX, it was here that he developed his musical tastes and interests, and it was not long after picking up a guitar that he was experimenting with the traditional and quartet gospel sounds of Joe Ligon and The Mighty Clouds of Joy and The Williams Brothers, all of which have had a profound influence on the direction his musical journey has taken.
After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talent in various venues across Houston and abroad, playing at numerous gigs and making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible. He was quickly noted for the unique style that he brought to the gospel industry and his popularity began to grow.
Although his name was continuing to grow in Houston, it was not here that he was destined to become a star. Instead, Dray had developed an affinity with The Wonderful Harmonizers of Huntsville, TX in 1994 which recorded with the Worldwide Gospel Records. Having traveled frequently he left to go play guitar for the Bolton Brothers for the next five years. Soon after, he began playing lead guitar for The Williams Brothers in 1999. He played lead guitar for a one year and then was released by the group.
