Potential Music is a contemporary Christian worship ministry from Potential Church in Miami, Florida. Potential Music began as the musical arm of Potential Church, a multi-site church, under the leadership of Pastor Troy Gramling. Helmed by Pastor Andre Butler, they focus on producing worship songs and albums that are largely written and recorded by members of their Artist Collective.

The group is part church, part publishing house, part label, and home to singers, groups, musicians, and songwriters like Andre Butler, Preston Stephens, William Thomas, Ryan Classe, Zea Classe, Roslyn Peralta, and many others.

Since emerging in 2020, Potential Music has released their debut single, “Into The Deep, in July, 2021.

Andre Butler is an American contemporary Christian music singer and songwriter, originally hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. An esteemed United States Air Force Veteran and member of the Air Force Honor Guard, Andre left the armed services to focus on his true passion: music. In 2019 Andre’s dream of sharing the joy of Jesus Christ through song led him to sign with Rev3aled Music as a solo artist. Andre’s first single, “No More Shadows,” was released in August of 2019. In October of that year, he released his debut album, Moments, and embarked on the first leg of his world tour, cultivating an atmosphere of worship and sharing his music across Kenya. 

Just before beginning the European leg of the Moments Tour, the COVID-19 Pandemic forced Andre to cancel all upcoming shows. Seeing a world in turmoil and darkness, Andre set out to share the hope and peace he found in Jesus Christ. He began working on his second album, Hope in Chaos (2020). The record debuted at number eight on the Christian iTunes charts. In 2020, Andre became the Creative Arts Pastor of Potential Church in Miami, Florida. There, he uses music and worship services to expand and strengthen the Kingdom of Christ on Earth.  

Andre’s passion is making music, and whether he’s playing the guitar on stage, recording in the studio, or just singing with his family, his goal is to create music that can change the world and shift focus back to God. When he’s not at church or in the studio, Andre enjoys watching movies and relaxing with his family. He is a proud husband and the father of five glorious children

Sjuwana Springfield has her roots in the great state of Alabama, home to hundreds if not thousands of gospel artists that go from community to community spreading good southern gospel music.   Born and raised in a religious environment, Sjuwana was always part of this culture.  She formed her group, “Sjuwana and the Children of God” in 1992, in the Cincinnati area.  The group today consists primarily of family members who sing and play instruments.  Members include, Joellyn Bivens, Anthony Gray, Christavious Gray, Kameishia Black, INdiya Black and Darius Byers.

In 1997, Sjuwana Byers and the Children of God signed with internationally acclaimed Jamalar Agency and Rampart Street Music, a roots music agency and record label located New Orleans.  They have multiple recording projects under their musical belts.  “Just Havin’ Church”, released in 1999, topped radio charts in Florida, Alabama, Colorado, Tennessee, Ohio and the Carolinas with their hit single “Nobody’s Fault”, while their second release, “Alive in Greenville”, did equally well with regional radio and expanded their footprint.  2005 saw the release of “Pick Up The Pieces”, Sjuwana’s prayer that post Katrina New Orleans and her survivors will be able to pick-up-the-pieces and come back better and stronger.  In 2010, they released Alive In Cincinnati, which included the hit single “After The Storm.”  IN 2016, they completed a live recording that will be released in 2017.The group’s song writing, and performance style is not at all typical.    In fact, it’s quite unique, especially in today’s industry.  Their music is deep-rooted, traditional and gritty; much like groups from the 1950’s, such as The Caravans the Davis Sisters.  Yet with a contemporary twist. 

Over the years, Sjuwana Byers and Children of God have received numerous awards and accolades.  Some of these include Best New Artist of the Year (1998) from the American Gospel Festival in Birmingham, Alabama, Best Artist Award (2006) from the Ester Wooten Gospel Quartet Convention and Best Gospel Quartet (2010) from the “I Hear Music Awards.”  They have performed across the United States, as well as abroad in places like Italy, Spain, Germany and France.

STANDARD was organized out of Indianapolis, Indiana around November of 2010 by a group of young men by the names of, Rodney Martin, Quintez Matthews, Anthony Boxley Jr., Shawn Wilson, Melvin Minor, and William Walker. Each of these young men shared a vision. Their vision was to uplift the kingdom of GOD through song. With time, they came to realize that there was a message for their generation within this vision, and that message was, “life has more to offer than the streets. There’s still hope for our generation.” As they journeyed, many changes took effect. Standard is now held together with a new warrior in the battle, Anthony Gray and the vision remains the same. GOD is truly blessing STANDARD and they will continue to uplift his Kingdom. “Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a STANDARD” Jeremiah 50:2

The musical journey of singer-songwriter Rico L. Dawson began in an improbable setting, the United States Army. While serving in the military, Rico became a member of the amateur R&B group, “Finesse.” As a founding member of this group, he not only performed but wrote the single “To Be With You.” His next foray into music provided formal training and experience. He left the army and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Industry Studies with a concentration in Music Business Administration at Elizabeth City State University.

Other musical pursuits include joining an additional group, “Next Episode.” During his tenure with this group of performers, he co-wrote the soulful “A Lonely Night: and co-wrote “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine.” The latter was recorded by “Next Episode” and featured on a CD compilation project, at his alma mater, entitled “Check the Resume: Vol. 1.”

Later, he worked as an intern for Intersection Records, an independent record label. While there, he continued writing and composing. “Don’t Look No Further” is one of his best efforts during his tenure at the company.Circumstances brought Dawson back to his home state. Upon returning to the Carolinas, Rico began working with a local producer, Lee Tate. This collaboration birthed the songs “Promises” and “Come Back to Me” Soon after, in 1998, he participated in a music seminar sponsored by WNAA-FM radio station. In December of that year, he showcased his demo for the Philadelphia Music Conference in Philadelphia, PA. After taking a year away from the music scene, he returned in the spring of 2000 to collaborate on a local compilation CD “Goldsboro 27530.” On that CD, he co-wrote and recorded three songs, “All I Want to Do,” “Do You Wanna Dance,” and “Turn Away.” These three songs were well received on the underground circuit.

In 2001, he co-wrote and sang background on the single “Take Our Time” on Richard Ashe’s debut independent CD, “Anticipation.” The single received positive feedback in the Durham, NC area. During that time, Rico began to teach music education in the Wayne County Public Schools. He wrote, produced, and arranged numerous original music selections for several schools from 2001 – 2004.

In 2004, Rico gave his life to Christ, thus putting him on a different path, musically. He no longer produced music for man’s glory, but for God’s glory. He began to put together gospel music selections, and with God’s help, he produced numerous contemporary gospel music selections. In 2006, Rico wrote and produced his debut contemporary gospel CD, “It’s Time.” Unfortunately, financial challenges prohibited the single from garnering commercial success. Dawson was delayed but not deterred. He used this respite to establish a stronger relationship with Christ. To that end, he has written, produced, and recorded several spiritual and reverent songs. Rico’s desire is that through his music that the body of Christ is edified, God is glorified, and the unbeliever is inspired to repent and turn to the Lord. He is currently a choir director at Charles B. Aycock as well.
