Gospel music maker Bishop Richard “Mr. Clean” White has a lively song that combines Island and jazz rhythms. It’s called “I’m Glad I Don’t Look Like What I’ve Been Through,” and that’s the kind of song title a lot of us can relate to, am I right? Bishop Richard White, for those of you who don’t know, got his start in Gospel music more than three decades ago, through his connection with Rev. James Cleveland.
Over the years, Bishop Richard White has written over 300 songs for such Gospel icons as The Winans, Bobby Jones, Walter and Edwin Hawkins, Ben Tankard, the O’Neal Twins, and Bishop Paul S. Morton. Recently, Bishop Richard White penned the chart-topping hit “The Safest Place” for Karen Clark-Sheard and her daughter KeKe Sheard.
Something you’d never guess about Bishop Richard White is that he died on the operating table six times– he had to have his gall bladder removed, and had triple bypass surgery, too. It’s remarkable that he’s back singing after all he has been through, amen? Amen!
Bishop Richard White will have a new Flow Records’ release entitled “I’m Glad” coming out soon. Look for it! –Christian Music Makers
