F.O.C.U.S. Sound of Victory




December 25, 1997 marked the day of the birth of F.O.C.U.S. (Followers of Christ Upholding Standards) In August of 1997, God gave the vision of F.O.C.U.S. to Wayne Ravenell. Wayne then organized a group of the city's best, vibrant, gifted, and anointed young adults.

The group was comprised of approximately 20 members- a collective group from different ministries of various denominations. Although their style of music was different. It returned an over-whelmingly positive response from their community. As a result, God gave them favor with pastors and leaders in their city, which allowed them to open for every major recording artist that came through their city. Some of these artist include: God’s Property, Trinitee 5:7, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Karen Clark – Sheard, Byron Cage, Natalie Wilson, New Direction, Alvin Slaughter, Overseer Hezekiah Walker, Sha’ Simpson, Tye Tribbett & G.A. and also blessed to tour with Anthony Hamilton on his '06 tour.

Over the last 8 years, the group has experienced many transitions and transformations. In August 2005 Wayne Ravenell passed the mantle to his successor. Minister Michael Brown. Since the inception of the ministry, Michael has served as the music director and assistant to Wayne. He is presently the national Minister of Music of the Life Center Ministries Fellowship Inc., which is under the leadership of founder and overseer Bishop Brian D. Moore. Under the direction of Minister Brown, F.O.C.U.S. has expanded to F.O.C.U.S. Outreach Ministries, which is comprised of several evangelical and outreach entitles.

In March 2005, F.O.C.U.S. recorded their first live project, “The Heart of a Worshiper”.
While the style of music on this project is creative, musically expressive, and versatile, it still reflects the heart of a worshiper. This group of vivacious, colorful and unique Levitical priests intends to reconcile souls to God through a radical and innovative praise and worship experience, while yet being examples of holiness and righteousness as Followers of Christ Upholding Standards.

This dynamic independent group released their 3rd Project entitled
Good Time on 2012. (Heart of A Worshiper, 2005), (Sound of Victory 2008) Proving consistent to the “sound” that Mike Brown & F.O.C.U.S. produces, featuring Tasha Cobbs (“Yes Lord”), Timiney Figueroa ("What A Friend”), and Josiah Martin (“Angel’s Cry”), this project is equipped with songs and music for everyone from your Praise Team to your church choir, and everyone in between. The lead single “Excellent”, hailed as “the next praise and worship anthem”, is a lively declaration, sure to be heard in churches by praise teams and choirs across the body.

And this year they coming with a New Single "
