These are just a few of many words that can describe Mr. Ralph (Raphael) Williams. Hailing from Newburgh, New York, the pioneer is credited as a singer-songwriter, choreographer, entrepreneur and more. His musical journey began with his family discovering his love of music through his singing and later on dancing.
As children, Ralph and his older brothers Danny and Clarence (professionally known as “IMakeHits”) would frequently mimic New Edition. Considering Ralph shared a name with New Edition’s lead singer, it was obvious who would stand front and center during their living room presentations. At that moment, Ralph fell in love with music and entertainment. Like many others, his development took place in the church. Growing up in The Cathedral at The House of Refuge International Ministries of Newburgh, NY, his love for God (like his love of music) grew.
In addition to serving as a musician and one of the choir directors at this campus, his work in the world of Gospel music is extremely expansive including being featured on “Earnest Pugh Presents Gospel’s Rising Stars” compilation project which debuted at #4 on the Billboard’s Top Gospel Album chart, and creating Christian-based clothing line “Grace Apparel” You may also recognize him from 106 & Park, the Sunday Best Commercial, or the viral “Wishful Thinking” parody covers. Most recently MrRalphWilliams has transitioned from Gospel to R&B. Excited about the journey, he is and always will be known for his soulfulness, transparency, and passion. His new EP, “Black Heart,” puts a magnifying glass on his life & experiences. Read more on Last.fm.
