Lawrence Mini Bio -
"I pour my heart and soul into every song I sings; whether it is Classical, Adult Contemporary, R&B, or a Negro Spiritual, hoping the feel every performance and moving hearts to their core. I want to bring back the depth of Barry White, the soul of Mahalia Jackson, and the honesty and rhythm of Bill Withers because Music is the power, always has been, and always will be"
Powerful. Soulful. Moving. Sensual.
These are just some of the words people use to describe a performance by Lawrence Beamen.

At sixteen, Lawrence was approached by a woman at his church in oakland CA who asked if he wanted to sing for Rosa Parks. He was deeply moved by the request, and the event caused him to believe that he could turn his love for music into a career. Determined to rise above his humble beginnings, Lawrence pursued his passion with an intense focus. He undertook classical vocal training and earned his masters degree in psychology.
