Obadiah started singing early in life. Somewhere around two years of age his Dad commented that he was loud... Not much has changed.
Until he was about sixteen he never really put much work or thought into his singing. However, God had plans. After an inspiring concert by Southern Gospel giants Legacy Five he decided that he was going to be a bass singer.
He joined his church choir as a tenor, but sang bass whenever he got a chance.
Bass singing was not to be however when in 2007, at the age of seventeen he helped start a local gospel group called "Obadiah & the Old Testaments". He wasn't singing bass though, he was singing lead.
Another huge step came in 2008 when Obadiah attended Ben Speer's Stamps-Baxter School of Music in Nashville Tennessee. There he sat under the tutelage of some of the best musicians in the gospel music field. Obadiah was especially influenced by Gaither Homecoming artist Allison Durham Speer. She was, in fact, the catalyst for his solo singing.
Stamps-Baxter School of Music was so influential that Obadiah returned in 2009 and again in 2010.
In 2012 Obadiah felt led to retire from Obadiah and the Old Testaments and work on entering the full-time gospel music industry. To Keep "in practice" Obadiah started singing solo. He combined his love for quartet music with his hobby of recording to become with the release of his first solo album in 2013 a one man quartet. He also is working in his small audio recording studio.
