Dr. Mark Williams, Christian music’s “Voice Doctor”, will be in Houston, TX this weekend appearing at the third National Gospel Music Heritage Month observance. Gospel Music Heritage Month will be celebrated Friday, September 30, 7:30 PM at New Light Christian Center, 7317 E. Houston Rd.
Dr. Williams will join Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Holliday, Kathy Taylor, Myron Butler, Le’Andria Johnson, SoulFruit, Ami Rushes and many more for an inspiring evening of song and entertainment.
In June of 2008, dual legislation passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate designated September as Gospel Music Heritage Month. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee introduced the historic resolution (HJ Res 64) and has led its passage in both the United States House and Senate with a significant bi-partisan support.
Dr. Williams will also make rounds while in Houston administering Vocal Care Workshops on Saturday at Windsor Village United Methodist Church and at Bellfort Seventh Day Adventist Church. Approximately 7.5 million people have diseases or disorders of the voice. With education and proper voice care, some of these disorders can be avoided. Dr. Williams educates singers, speakers, pastors and professional voice users about the voice, its purpose, proper functioning and maintenance.
A board-certified Otolaryngologist, Dr. Williams relocated to Nashville, TN from Cincinnati, OH three years ago to establish The Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists of Nashville and The Voice Care Center of Nashville. His thriving medical practice specializes in evaluating and treating pediatric and adult disorders of the head and neck, specifically the face, ear, nose, throat, sinuses, neck and skull base.
Dr. Williams received his doctorate of medicine and Ph.D of Pharmacology and Cell Biophysics from the University Of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio where he also completed his residency. He is a member of The American Medical Association, The Tennessee Medical Association, The American Association for Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, an adjunct assistant professor at Meharry Medical College and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. He is also a national recording artist who released his own CD, EVERYTHING this summer.
