After nearly 6 years as manager and lead singer of the impacting Bluegrass Gospel group, Standing Tall, Mike Upright has launched a solo career. During his time with Standing Tall, Mike was featured on singles such as "Winner Either Way," "It's Too Late," "The Lamb Is Within," and Mr. President." He is also featured on the group's current Lighthouse single, "God Saves Old Sinners," from A Tribute to the Songs of Kyla Rowland. "The Lamb Is Within" was nominated for Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year at the 2002 Dove Awards.
Mike is very excited about this new direction in his ministry. "I have felt the Lord leading me in a solo direction for quite some time. Now, He has opened the doors and put the pieces in place," says Mike. "My ministry focus and my desire to make a difference have not changed." Since Mike was featured on the majority of Standing Tall's most recognizable songs, his sound will still be similar to that of the group. Mike asks that you join him in prayer as he makes decisions and begins this new venture.
