Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Kevin Lemons began his music ministry in 1996. Gathering a few friends and acquaintances in a small church is where he organized his now prominent ministry - Higher Calling. This ministry, collectively known as Kevin Lemons & Higher Calling, set out on a fast‐track to success by working diligently to create a sound and image unique to themselves. With Kevin’s leadership, Higher Calling began traveling extensively sharing their message of love, unity and the importance of spiritual development…all through song.
Kevin Lemons & Higher Calling released their first CD “Destined for Greatness” independently to great acclaim, followed by their Sophomore Effort entitled “The Declaration” which peaked at Number 10 on Billboard’s Gospel Charts.
