    Tim Bowman, Jr., is healing and helping his community through music. (Published Friday, Feb. 24, 2017)

    Name: Tim Bowman, Jr. 

    Education: Wayne State University 

    Occupation: Grammy-nominated gospel artist
    Assistant Spirit of Faith Christian Center Choral Director
    Mentor 

    His Story: Born into a family of musicians, Bowman was destined for musical success. His father, Tim Bowman, Sr., is a noted smooth jazz artist while his aunt, Vicki Winans, has topped the gospel charts for years. The Detroit native found his way to D.C. through love. He currently lives in the D.C. area with his wife, Brelyn Freeman, who is the daughter of Spirit of Faith Christian Center founder and pastor Dr. Mike Freeman.

    Making History: Tim Bowman, Jr., has a voice known to heal souls. He's not a traditional gospel artist -- sonically speaking -- which is why he has become so successful. Tim began his music career in 2012, with the release of his debut album, "Beautiful." Since then, he has continued to rise and landed his first Grammy nomination for best gospel album this year. Outside of being a singer/songwriter, Tim is one of the choral directors at Spirit of Faith Christian Center, as well as a mentor.
