Gospel Glory : Maurice Cain

MAURICE LATRALL CAIN BORN APRIL 17TH 1975 TO THE PARENTS OF MARS VINCENT SKINNER AND ROBIN CAIN. I'M ONE OF SIX CHILDREN MY MOM HAD 3 BOYS AND 3 GIRLS I'M THE OLDEST BROTHER. I'M FROM CHICAGO SOUTH SIDE WENT TO BRYN MAWR ELEMENTRY AND SOUTH SHORE HIGH SCHOOL. I'M CURRENTLY LIVING IN LANSING MI WHERE I RESIDE WITH MY WIFE NIDIAN CAIN OF 15YRS . WE HAVE 5 KIDS SERENA, MAURICE JR, MIRACLE, JEREMIAH, AND LEELAH.

YES, I LOVED MUSIC SINCE THE AGE OF SIX. MY MOM WOULD PLAY A LOT OF OLDIES AT THE TIME OF THE SEVENTIES AND EIGHTIES. BACK THEN MARVIN GAY STEVIE ALGREEN AND MANY MORE.

WELL. I DIDN'T WANT TO BECOME AND ARTIST AT ALL. I WANTED TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY INSTRUMENTS WHICH AT THAT TIME WAS PERCUSSION. I WAS RAISED IN THE CHURCH WE'RE I WAS THE CHOIR DIRECTOR , THE DRUMMER AND A YOUTH MINISTER.

I'M CURRENTLY A RESTAURANT GENERAL MANAGER. ALSO RIGHT NOW AS I DUE THIS INTERVIEW I'M CURRENTLY NOMIATED TO BECAME A PASTOR AT A CHURCH IN LANSING, MI. I'M A WORSHIP LEADER AND A INDEPENDANT RECORDING ARTIST. I PLAY SEVERAL INSTRUMENTS.

I'M INSPIRED BY SO MANY PEOPLE IF I CAN NAME ONE THAT WOULD BE KIRK FRANKLIN. EVERYONE THAT KNOWS ME CALL ME LITTLE KIRK .ONE DAY WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH HIM.

SO MANY PEOPLE ATTRACTED ME TO MUSIC. I WANTED TO WRITE LIKE R. KELLY. MY MENTOR PASTOR RICHARD STEPHENS 111. BISHOP LORENZO JOHNSON, REV KEVIN RILEY, RAMON PERRY, MY PASTOR AT THE TIME REV BELL MICHAEL DAVIS, MELVIN JOHNSON, SUMASTER NEWELL,LOAR, LET SEE ALSO ERVIN WILLIAMS , PASTOR RICK MCCOY KEVIN STOVAL AND BISHOP GOODEN. SO, I WATCHED THESE GREAT MEN AND WOMEN OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT SO I WENT HOME AND STUDIED ALL OF THEM AND THAT'S HOW I GOT MY START NEVER TOOK AND LESSONS UNTIL I WAS IN MY 30'S. I WAS HEAVY INVOLVED IN MUSIC BY THE AGE OF SIX.

I'M INFLUENCE BY A LOT OF MUSIC AND ARTIST BUT IF I HAD TO CHOOSE ONE. I LOVE GOSPEL MUSIC. NO OTHER FEELING, I BELIEVE WORDS CAN'T EXPRESS THE EMOTIONS YOU GET WHEN LISTEN TO GOSPEL MUSIC, AND I LOVE ALL GENERE OF MUSIC FROM R@B TO JAZZ TO SOME BLUES, HIP HOP COUNTRY AND A LITTLE ROCK.

MY MUSIC STYLE IT'S A VARIETY OF THINGS. I WRITE ABOUT LIFE EXPERIENCES I WRITE ABOUT WHAT'S GOING IN THE WORLD I WRITE ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. JUST WHAT GOD GIVES ME. IT ALL START WITH ME A CATCHY HOOK FROM THERE ON I MAKE IT WORK, I HAVE WRITER'S AT TIME TO HELP.

THE JOURNEY IN THIS BUSINESS IS GREAT JUST LIKE ANY OTHER BUSINESS IT HAS IT'S UP AND DOWNS BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE ENDURANCE AND PATIENTS. I LOVE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. I LOVE CREATING.

I'M FAMOUS ALREADY LOL BUT GROWING UP I HAD A MENTAILTY YOU CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BE OUT OF LIFE. MY GRANDFATHER INSTILLED THAT IN MY HEAD FROM A CHILD YOU CAN HAVE WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF LIFE YOU JUST HAVE TO PUT THE WORK IN. I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE RICH I WOULD TELL MY MOM THAT ALL THE TIME. BUT MY DEFINING OF RICH IS NOT JUST MONEY BUT RICH IN SPIRTUALITY. REMINDER GOODNESS AND MERCY WILL FOLLOW YOU .

I'M ALWAYS WORKING ON SOMETHING I HAVE A TEAM I'M SURROND BY. JCHASE, HARVEY LEE, PIANO BOY, JOHN BUTCH PHILIP, CHARLES BETHEA. A NEW SINGLE BY THE TIME THIS ARTICLE IS WRITTEN I TRUST IN MY GOD.

BY THE YEAR OF 2023 I WANT TO DO A FULL COMPLETE ALBUM WITH ABOUT 12-16 SONGS THAT WOULD BE NICE.

I WOULD LOVE TO WRITE OR WORK WITH SOME GOPSEL ARTISTS OR UP AND COMING ARTIST. I'VE MET SEVERAL PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IT'S A TOUGH BUSINESS.

OUR YOUTH NEEDS A LOT OF ATTENTION RIGHT NOW. EVERYTHING IS SOCIAL MEDIA BASED. THIS IS A TOUGH QUESTION. TAKE AWAY THE GAMES THE CELL PHONES. PUT A BOOK IN THEIR HANDS A BALL, A MUSIC INSTRUMENT. I BELIEVED WE HAVE FAILED OUR YOUTH NO GUIDANCE, NO HEROS TO LOOK UP TO. AND I'T SOME GOOD ROLE MODELS OUT THERE JUST NOT ENOUGH FOR TODAY SOCIETY.

I HAD MANY GREAT EXPERIENCES IN LIFE WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC. PLAYING ON LIVE RECORDINGS MEETING VARIETY OF CELEBRITYS

I HAVE HAD SOME GREAT EXPERIENCES AND SOME BAD ONE'S. I REMEBER ONE TIME BEING STAGE FREIGHT ALL MY JOINTS LOCK UP ON ME AND ONE MY MUSICIAN YELLED AT ME BUT OVERALL GOOD ONES.

THEY WAY I SEE MY MUSIC CAREER IS TO ALWAYS GROW AS LONG AS I GET TO CREATE MUSIC OR IDEAS THAT INVOLVES MUSIC. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A MUSIC CONTRACT OR GET PICK UP BY A MAJOR LABEL BUT IF DOESN'T HAPPEN IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD.

SURRONDING YOURSERLF AROUND PEOPLE THAT'S IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO ME IS TO ALWAYS BE YOURSELF AND GENIUE IT'S GETS YOU A LONG WAY IN ANY INDUSTRTY.

BALANCE CAN BE TRICKY SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SAY NO AT TIMES AND SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO GO WITH THE FLOW. THAT'S WHY COMMUNICATION IS KEY TO BALANCE WETHER IT'S AT HOME BUSINESS OR ANYTHING YOU DO OUT OF LIFE. HAVING A SCHEDULE IS KEY.

I DO WANT TO GIVE ANY SECRETS OUT BUT I WILL SAY TO ANYONE WHO'S GOING TO BE IN THIS BUSINESS. GIVE IT YOUR ALL DON'T HALF STEP. THE WORD NO IS GOING TO HURT BUT GROW THICK SKIN AND CONTINUE TO JOURNEY ON. ONE THING ABOUT A DREAM NO ONE CAN STOP YOUR DREAM BUT YOU. I WANT TO THANK MY FRIEND OF 40YRS AJ BLESSINGS TO YOU AND THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. ON TO THE NEXT PROJECT MAURIC CAIN
