Worship the King
Composer, musician, singer. Born Eric Neal Thomas, on February, 28, 1966, in Beckley, West Virginia. Raised in a small town called Oak Hill, as one of eight children. Eric started his music career in a small church that had no musician about thirty years ago. He started playing the drums, the key board and then directing the choir. He realized that music was a way of expressing ideas, feelings and a great way of soothing his and others souls. After two years of college at West Virginia Institute of Technology where he performed in many choirs. He joined the military for eight years which allowed him to see a lot of the world. In Germany He played the piano and directed the Post choir for the church. While on deployment in Africa He directed the choir for the praise and worship service. Eric returned to the United States to Colorado Springs Colorado where he played for three choirs at a local church. His next duty station was in Tennessee where he performed with different choirs and played music for two churches. While in Tennessee writing became the essence of his time and something that he could spend countless hours doing. The first song he wrote and performed in public gave him a feel for the style of music he wanted to compose. In December of 1996 he got out the Military and moved to Lorain Ohio and began to write all the praise and worship music for a small church. He moved to Cleveland Ohio and began recording in his home on a computer/home studio. He was the minister of music for Messiah International Ministries where he wrote the theme song for the church 'Messiah the Anointed One'.. The first CD produced in his home studio was for Messiah which contain four songs. He wrote his first wedding song for a family member who asked him to perform at their wedding which has been performed many times. For the last eight years he has been writing Gospel music and for the last year working on a Worship CD. I am presently looking for a record label for my worship CD. © 2003 Wings of Eagles Music Ministries, All right reserved.
