Worship leader, recording artist, songwriter, and producer, Israel Houghton became involved full-time in worship ministry in 1989. From the start, he looked to overcome cultural and denominational barriers. With this idea as the centerpiece, Israel formed his New Breed Ministries in 1995 with his wife, Meleasa, and a group of world-class musicians and singers. Although their popularity had been growing steadily since the group’s inception, they were catapulted into the limelight during 2005 with the release of their gold-certified CD, Live from Another Level. They followed this success with the release of Alive in South Africa (2005), A Timeless Christmas (2006), A Deeper Level (2007), The Power of One (2009), and Love God, Love People (2010). His recordings have received multiple Dove and Stellar Awards, a Soul Train Award, and a Grammy Award. Israel continues to serve as a worship leader at Houston’s Lakewood Church. He and Meleasa make their home near Houston with their three young children.
