The community is invited to attend and hear the melodic sounds of Stellar and Grammy nominated saxophonist Mel Holder, who will be ministering on his saxophone at Amos Temple Church on December 18th under the leadership of Pastor Marrix Seymore Sr.

From the ancient Asian city of Okinawa, Japan, through the secular Muslim nation of Azerbaijan, to the remote parts of post apartheid, South Africa, throughout the Caribbean, Europe, even in the socialist country of Cuba… and across the USA, this anointed Psalmist is parading the melody of his message …The healing of the nations and preparation for the return of Christ.

Born in Brooklyn, NY of Panamanian decent, Holder was a testimony in the making. From the early age of six, he was hindered from being a full participant in all of life’s youthful activities, by asthma. However, God taught him through that challenge to become a focused, relentless warrior.

This physical impairment made it quite difficult for Holder to breathe normally, but at age 9, he accidentally picked up his sister’s clarinet, and began to make haunting sounds with it.

Holder’s family immediately knew that this was ‘Divine intervention’ since such an act was deemed impossible based on his physical condition. This was a testament to the undeniable light of Gods healing power, and the beginning of miracles in young Holder’s journey to musical manhood. During hiss early school years, he developed a passion for the saxophone and made a commitment to master it. His mother made great sacrifices, due to the difficulties of those days, to give her only son, a quality instrument. Holder’s appreciation fueled his enthusiasm, and his dedication, making his desire to play the horn continuously.

He has been a guest and host of Trinity Broadcasting Network and has performed with the likes of Kirk Franklin, Kelly Price, Jonathan Butler and so many other notable artists. For more information call 951-7898720.
