Anthony Dixon is a songwriter-vocalist who has worked with Diana Ross, Jennifer Holliday, Cissy Houston, and Melba Moore. He was born in Glendale, Arizona; but grew up in sunny Panama City, Florida, among his musically inclined relatives. Exposed constantly to their talents, it was inevitable that he would soon develop a passion for music.

Come with me as we journey back in time to a southern Pentecostal sanctuary. Here we find an unassuming little boy posing a question in song, "What Color Is God's Skin?" This heart-capturing first performance won the favor of many ears in his hometown that day. It was there in that southern church that the foundation for a lifelong devotion to music was laid. As he began to perform more frequently, he discovered the magic in his gift. Anthony believes "Music can heal hearts, ease a troubled mind, and bring joy to a sad spirit. It touches deep emotions and puts us all a little closer to knowing what heaven must feel like."
