About Calvin The Groovement
Calvin G Williams was born on January 17th, on the southside of Chicago, at Lions Inn Hospital as a premature baby with low expectation for survival. The Genesis of Gods plan, for life, growth, and prosperity was delayed but not denied. Compared to David the Psalmist, Calvin has such a gentle and humble spirit. But also, like David, Calvin has also had to face his own Goliath, to include being asthmatic, on top of being bullied. However, instead of picking up a weapon, like a stone, knife or a gun, he decided to pick up drumsticks and a bible. This is when “THE GROOVEMENT” really became Satan’s rival. Despite being raised in Englewood, having to be a fighter since his birth, and facing many obstacles throughout his life; his tenacious and goal driven character has not gotten in the way of his heart.
On top of being an amazing husband, father of 3 beautiful daughters, and a man after God’s own heart, Calvin is also known as God’s anointed drummer. Calvin has been nicknamed the human metronome. He has been locking it in the pocket for over 30 years. His love for music and his spirit of excellence together makes him an amazing musician. He has had the pleasure of playing for and with many soloists and groups during his journey operating in his gift. He is also the musical director for Cherise The Movement. He is very proud to have had the opportunity to set a musical foundation throughout the nation. Although he has gospel roots and is best known for playing Gospel music, he has such a gift that he can play any style and make you dance out your shoes and boots. Cal G is a proud endorser of Soultone cymbals and Scorpion drumsticks.
Calvin also loves to sing A’cappella. He has had many different singing groups. They have sung the national anthem at a Chicago White Sox game, sung at the Apollo, and has also opened for gospel artist Kim Stratton. Calvin is a songwriter, producer, composer and arranger. Calvin is truly a musical genius. Calvin is a true worshiper who uses his total gift to glorify the father. His sensitivity to the spirit is unmatched. His ability to flow with the spirit of God is anointed. It has been prophesied to him on multiple occasions that there is warfare in the drums, and that he’s able to tap into the beats of heaven. Those sounds set the enemy to flight.
Due to the diligence and faithfulness to God’s word, Calvin was called to minister; not only through his worship on the drums, but with his voice, through words given by the holy spirit. This musical, gifted, and anointed husband and father is also an Ordained Pastor. The enemy has tried repeatedly to infiltrate. However, all attempts of the enemy will continue to fail, because God’s favor and power upon Calvin’s life will always prevail.
