Men of Worship is the brainchild of Cleon Hardy, founder and leader of the group. Cleon had a vision for an all-male praise and worship team that would be a beacon to other men seeking Christ. The team is composed of former R&B professionals who found Christ and began their musical ministry singing Gospel. The team is Cleon Hardy, Louis Diggs, Ted West, Daryl Williams, Thomas Timmons and Keith Bailey. Men of Worship quickly began to work on recording original material. With two singles already receiving Gospel radio airplay in “Hold on” and “Save Me,” the group has now released another single, “Even Now.” Men of Worship expects to release its first EP later this year.
