Willie Sells Jr III

Willie L Sells Jr.The 3rd is a native of Phoenix Arizona. He grew up in a Pentecostal church (Paradise C.O.G.I.C.) on the South side of Phoenix, where music plays an integral role in praising and worshipping God. At the tender age of 10, his mother taught him how to play the drums -- which was one of the greatest gifts that his mother gave him, before succumbing to breast cancer in 1992. Will and his brothers started working with Dr. Mark E. Sunkett in the Kawambe Drum and Dance Ensemble where they learned the origins of percussion and music in their culture.

Since then, Will has become a highly sought after Phoenix musician and has already had the pleasure of playing with such Gospel entertainment greats such as Hezekiah Walker, Vickie Winans, Mary Mary and Kirk Whalum, and local Phoenix talents like Doc & Nyo Jones ,Soul Power,Dennis Rowland and Marion Meadows. Today, Will is a proud father of three beautiful girls, all of whom evince a natural talent for the entertainment arts. Ultimately, Will hopes to give back to the Phoenix community by initiating a school for the arts, providing opportunities to Phoenix at risk youth to learn dance, music, and theater arts.
