Anthony Mason is in his season for favor having just released his new CD project “The Leader Inside of You.” Mason is poised and anointed to surge to the forefront of gospel music. Anthony Mason has always been a musical phenomenon in Tulsa from the time he sang George Bensons “On Broadway” in a full white suit, with a white guitar, in his senior year at High Jenks at Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington High School in 1981. Anthony Mason has always been recognized among his peers at the top of his craft, especially when it comes to vocals, Mason is in a class all by himself.
The late Dr. Myles Monroe spoke of Mason saying, “Anthony Mason is a rare breed of emerging musicians and psalmist destined to leave a legacy for generations to come. His authentic, fresh, energetic and anointed brand of music and writing emits an originality that will produce a niche for itself in the marketplace. I am honored to endorse him for your next gathering. I am sure all who hear him will be inspired to believe and their faith will be stirred to worship the king.”
