Pastor William Becton

Many people were first introduced to him in 1995 when he released the smash gospel hit single, "Be Encouraged" from the CD entitled “Broken”. The song took Pastor Becton from anonymity to notoriety almost overnight.  The project amazed the gospel and R&B communities by debuting on the Billboard Gospel chart at #3 and the album propelled to #1 for over 11 weeks.  It also hit the Billboard R&B singles chart at #59 for 21 weeks, allowing secular listeners to experience music with an underlying Christian message.  The “cross over” success of “Be Encourage” set a new trend in gospel music and paved the way for upcoming gospel artist who also had crossover hits.
