Gospel singer and songwriter Damon Little began his singing ministry at the age of five, when he and his brothers and cousins formed a family group. His first studio recording was with his uncle, who just happened to be the great Clarence Fountain of the Five Blind Boys of Alabama. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Little spent a portion of his childhood years in Pensacola, Florida, where he developed a resonant singing style reminiscent at times of Al Green or Philippe Wynne, former lead singer of the Spinners. Little‘s musical ministry has taken him to Mexico, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and elsewhere, often as part of Radio-One’s Gospel Cruise, and has been featured on TV One, BET, TBN, and the Word Network. Little signed with Houston, Texas’ Worldwide Gospel in 2000, and began producing a string of gospel chart hits with a strong urban R&B feel, including the title track of his debut album, “You Can’t Straddle the Fence” (the album appeared in 2002 from Worldwide), “Long as I Got Shoes,” and “Do Right (How You Gonna Do Right with a Do Wrong Mind),” the title tune of his second album, Do Right, which Worldwide released in 2004.
