How did it all begin?
Known for his spectacular choral direction style and jazzy personality, Minister Napoleon Williams is a rising star in the gospel music community as a vocalist, instrumentalist, composer and arranger. He is Minister of Music of the prestigious Mt. Olive Baptist Church and reigns supreme as the Gospel Choir Instructor at Cathedral High School, both located in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Born and raised in Indianapolis, Minister Williams developed a love for God's music through the nurturing of his maternal grandmother, Mrs. Myrtle Rhodes. She would take him to choir rehearsals as a young lad and have him lead songs in the choir. His favorite aunt, Charlene, started him playing the piano and from there, Minister Williams has been unstoppable in creating, arranging and singing heavenly melodies.

Minister Williams founded True Friends True Praise in early 2004 based upon a vision he received from God instructing him to bring this eclectic group of singers together and record. Within three months of its inception, NAPOLEON WILLIAMS & TRUE FRIENDS TRUE PRAISE recorded their debut CD, "Use Me As You Will". Then on May 9, 2008 Minister Williams once again orchestrated his musical & ministerial gifts into a blend of contemporary and traditional gospel styles that has been described as a unique culmination of traditonal gospel music with a splash of contemporary savvy!
