My name is Miracle Thomas. I am a vocalist, songwriter and producer.
I started singing publicly at the age of three with “The Gems of Truth
Gospel Choir” in my hometown in Lynchburg, Virginia. I studied under the
late Dr. Napoleon Reed who was an original member of the broadway show
Carmen Jones. I am classically trained and I have competed in over 200
talent competitions (nationally and internationally).
I have many memorable moments. Since I have to choose one, it would be
when I sang the National Anthem at a basketball game in Maryland at a
Chicago Bulls Game and Michael Jordan was starting to a crowd of over
My most challenging moment was when I opened for a major act and their
engineering crew didn’t want me to have a full sound in the amphitheater
and they turned off my monitors during the show which made it difficult for
me to hear my band. Music is a feeling and since I connect with it on a
spiritual level, it didn’t hinder my performance.
My influences cover many genres of music. Patti LabBell, Gladys Knight,
Dolly Parton, Babyface, Whitney Houston, White Snake, Bob Marley, opera
singer Denyce Graves and last but not least, my uncle, the late Carl
Anderson who is known for his song “Buttercup”.
I put my music career on hold after my son was diagnosed with autism at
the age of 2. I didn’t know much about the diagnosis and I would stay up
many nights Googling and trying to connect with others who had family
members who were autistic so I could make sure I utilized all resources so
my son could have a chance to live a productive life. I recently started
singing again in 2018 because my son said he thought it was time for the
world to hear me.
I didn’t get into the music industry to be a role model. However, it can come
with the territory. Parents should be active in their children’s lives and make
sure their needs are met. For the younger generation who fall short and
don’t have a role model, I would make myself available. This has happened
many times in my life.
I’ve been put in situations where I had to choose the moral high ground
because some of my male counterparts were used to females giving sexual
favors for music tracks, to move up in the industry, etc. This makes it
extremely difficult for people like myself who thinks that it should be all
about the talent. I have one boundary, when it comes to my business
ethics: DO NOT come at me in a sexual way. I have ran into a few people
who would challenge this because some of my songs are sensual. I have to
remind them that it’s a song and it’s entertainment.
Some fo the life’s lessons I have learned while in pursuance of my lifelong
dreams is to stay focused, surround yourself with people who want the best
for you, network often and learn as much about the industry as possible, so
you can be prepared on different levels.
My life hasn’t changed much since Covid-19 because I was mainly staying
at home and I had the pleasure to be able to work from home. The only that
changed mainly is being extra careful and taking more precautions to
continue to stay safe.
I am currently collaborating with Rob Hardt, the owner of SedSoul Records
in Germany and also a member of the group Cool Million. Rob is an
incredible musician/producer. He brings out the best in me and he believes
in me. He continues to send me tracks to write to and I am having the time
of my life. Rob Hardt released “I’m All You Need” (#2 on the Amazon UK
and UK Soul Chart) “If I Told You” (#23 on Amazon UK/Top 10 on the UK
Soul Chart), he featured me on “Get Up On The Floor” and my latest
project “Let Me Love You” is doing well and I’m starting to get regular
airplay in the States. The Donnie Simpson Show in Maryland featured the
song on the show and with that support it has helped me get more
exposure. Rob created a remix that will make you want to get up and
dance. I have a song that I released “I Wanna Be Your Girl”. The track was
composed by London’s own DJ Mystique. I’m finish up an album with Ian
Greaves from Barbados and his partner Brian Bowry and DJ Bizzie Bee in
the UK. They have a company called Intellect Music. We are currently
recording an album and Rob Hardt is planning on doing a remix on one of
the songs. I also recorded a song with guitarist Dave Mascall from the UK.
He featured me on his song “Brighter Day” and I am asked him for a favor
on a song I wrote “Let A Man Be A Man”. I am planning on releasing it in
There are many steps someone has to take to reach their greatest
potential. First of all, you have to love what you do if you are trying to
pursue a career in the music industry because the game has changed so
much and what you used to earn from album/single sales isn’t as lucrative
like it was in the past. You have an advantage of being able to record from
home because of the software and other devices you can obtain, so you
can create a home recording studio and this will save you a lot of money in
the long run. Make sure you get a website and keep a consistent social
media presence. Space things out so you don’t get burned out especially if
you don’t have anyone to help you maintain it; get ready to wear many
The best advice I can give someone who is traveling in the same direction
as myself is to develop an unbreakable work ethic. This will take you far
and it will set you aside from the rest. I also want to add to take care of
yourself. Eat as healthy as possible, stay active and make sure you are
getting proper rest. Everyone doesn’t require 8 full hours of sleep in order
to be rejuvenated. You know your body, do what’s best for you and reach
for the stars….
