HisSong Announces Michael Frost As New Baritone Vocalist

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on November 3, 2011 – 11:09 am -

Dove Award nominated HisSong is proud to announce as their new Baritone singer/songwriter Michael Frost. Michael has a long history in southern gospel music.

HisSong owner/manager Dennis Humphries states, “We are very excited to have Michael a part of this ministry and team. I have known Michael for several years and have always loved his singing, songwriting and his spirit. I’m excited to see what God has in store for this ministry.”

Michael Jason Frost grew up singing gospel music with his family in upper East Tennessee. By the time he was a teenager, he was harmonizing with his cousins and traveling on weekends across the southeast with a family band, The Frost Family. That band evolved into a vocal trio, The Frosts, that did well in the southern gospel music industry with widespread radio airplay and charting singles. The trio enjoyed success from 2002 – 2005 and earned a Singing News Fan Award nomination in 2005.

As a songwriter, Michael has had cuts by several of gospel music’s most popular artists, including a new release on Ivan Parker’s latest project HisSong, The Wilburns, Heirline and more. Many of his songs have climbed The Singing News Top 40 chart. Michael was named “Songwriter of the Year” in 2007 by the Eddie Crook Company.

In 2006, Michael was cast in an original musical production about the life of Christ called “The Miracle” at The Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN. Michael signed on for every season of The Miracle, where he played various roles from John the Baptist to Judas, and as an understudy to the role of Jesus. He also served as host and pre-show soloist. Michael appeared in more than 2,000 performances of The Miracle until the show ended its run in October 2011. Michael also appeared in the theater’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” starring alongside American Idol’s Melinda Doolittle.

After The Miracle ended it’s run, Michael officially joined popular southern gospel trio, HisSong in October 2011 as their full-time baritone singer.

“I’m amazed by God’s timing. Just when The Miracle closed after six years, God opened the door for me to sing with HisSong. I’ve known these guys for years, and I’ve always loved their sound and their songs. It’s an honor to join their ministry and I’m excited to see where God will take us from here,” Michael said.
Michael and his wife Jen have one daughter, Jael Esther Frost. They reside in Sevierville, TN.

HisSong is currently working on a brand new project with multi Dove Award winning producer Wayne Haun on the Vine/Crossroads label. This will be the 4th project with Wayne. This is HisSong’s 10 year anniversary and the new record will be called “Decade.”
