Bio

Michael Stosic

 Michael Stosic’s musical career began back in 1986 in the Gospel music world when he recorded his first Contemporary Christian album titled “Brand New Love”, which became an instant hit with listeners on the West Coast due to play in Seattle Washington from Spirit 105.3FM KCMS Radio. Soon after the release of his debut album, Stosic’s second album “Symphony of Praise” reached listeners all across America and 118 other countries including Communist China. The success and response to Michael Stosic’s songs in the Christian music world became evident to him after the release of his third studio album “Psalms of the Heart” in 1992, where he started receiving letters and phone calls from fans across America who gave him praise for his music.

 

A decade after the release “Psalms of the Heart”, Stosic was invited to Zimbabwe to put on concerts for the native people; touring the land and even making a stop to sing for children at an orphanage. Upon returning back home to the United States, he was saddened to receive a call from the pastor running the orphanage informing him that 3 of the children he had interacted with have passed away from malnutrition. Being overwhelmed by the heaviness of the news, Michael decided to get more involved with the country of Zimbabwe and the children that live there. He soon teamed up with the Indiana based non-profit organization Feed The Nations and The River Christian Church in Reno, with their help he took part in getting a shipment of 286,000 meals sent to Zimbabwe for the people in need.

Since 2014 Michael has been singing every Thursday at Barbara Bennett Park for the homeless as part of a group called Loaves and Fishes who also gives them a hot meal and provides a church service for them. Michael recalls one woman in particular who sleeps under a bridge at night, "I noticed her crying when I was singing and so I went and asked her later why she was crying, and the woman replied 'your singing reminds me of being home again." Her home now is under a bridge even in the freezing cold of winter. Stosic hopes to be involved with getting a Day Center secured for these people so they will have a place to get a hot shower, a change of clothes, a meal and even an address so they can get their social security checks.

 

In 2015, Michael continued his musical voyage. After tracking for his 9th album, called "Welcome Home" he joined MetroSonic Studios in Brooklyn, New York. Given the task to Mix and Master the album, MetroSonic set out on capturing the true essence of the emotions Michael tries to convey through his lyrics.

 

Throughout the Mixing and Mastering process one thing about Michael became more and more evident: he pours all of his passion into his music. With songs about losing loved ones, the bond between his, and the horrible events that took place at the Emmanuel Methodist Church in Charleston, South Carolina; Michael has truly put all of his emotion and heart into this album.
 

In November of 2016 Michael, on the verge of another musical breakthrough with the release of his new single "I Believe" (Gospel Re-mix).
