The CD also features Melvin’s version of the classic “Go Down Moses,” which was described as “a Santana-esque Spanish guitar and Mavis Staples performance all rolled into one” by Don Allan Mitchell, Chair of Language & Literature at Delta State University, at two recent GRAMMY Museum concerts in Los Angeles and Mississippi. Melvin Williams plays the guitar in vassapoo, that is., playing a right-handed guitar upside down and backwards with his left hand thereby the strings are upside-down chords also known as “Open E.” He is part of an extraordinary group of musicians and artists, for example., Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Al McKay (formerly of Earth Wind & Fire), Jonathan Butler, Billy Ray Cyrus, Cesar Rosas (formerly of Los Lobas), Dick Dale (the King of Surfer Music), Kurt Cobain, Bobby Womack, Seal, Jimi Hendrix, Justin Bieber, and Albert King, Sr, to name a few.

In addition to his broadcasting achievements, Tim is particularly proud of sharing the "good news" as pastor and founder of Harvest Christian Ministries in Baltimore, a non-denominational church. Tim holds a Doctor of Ministry degree (D.Min.) from Virginia Seminary in Lynchburg.
