Beyond the usual love of music all children enjoy, Minkah acquired a deep fascination with how musical notes were made making musical instruments from rubber bands constructing drums from cans and barrels and discovering wind instruments in glass jugs. In junior high school Minkah joined a local garage band as the lead singer and as the band began to tour he expanded to sound engineer and began to play piano. The computer age was a perfect fit for Minkah who inherited his technical skills from his father a Master Sergeant in the Air Force who Minkah says "He can fix anything electronic I mean anything".
We fast forward to find Minkah has served as Choir and Praise team member and assisted in the church sound dept. Minkah makes music from his home studio using a DAW (Digital/Audio Workstation) on his computer and is sharing his experiences of connection with the Creator of all mankind with his family and interaction with life to inspire and encourage others though expressions of music. Minkah's original sounds are uplifting and anointed. His voice is melodious with a sultry sound that calms and soothe the audience. Minkah is a great listener and counselor, he takes his time and truly thinks before he gives anyone advice. He is known for his gentle and kind words of inspiration. Minkah has a gift of taking one's stories and creating a compilation of songs for individuals. The work that he does speaks for itself.
