Atibahh

 

 

Atibahh, the co-writer of the theme song entitled “Alaskan Pipeline”.  In the movie Pipe Dreams, which stars Gladys Knight, is a young songwriter, musician, and artist from Montgomery, Alabama, who dedicated his life and talents to God in 1983.

 Atibahh started his musical career at the age of fifteen. He began playing with blues artist Sonny Boy Williamson on weekends.  He left Montgomery headed for Orlando, Florida one summer and played with Bobby Williams and the Hitchhikers.  After his return he continued high school at Sidney Lanier.

The bright lights and glamour of New York seemed to beckon to Atibahh.  After taking the south “by storm,” he felt he could make it to the top in the “Big Apple.”  In New York, at the Apollo Theater, he met Ollie and the Nightingales and began touring with them.

The long trail of recording artists he performed with include: Santana, Carla Thomas, Pink Floyd, Mountain, The Allman Brothers, Frank Zappa & Mothers of Intervention, and Jim Morrison & The Doors, and many more.  As a staff musician for Stax’s Records he played on Isaac Hayes’s Christmas song, “The Mistletoe and Me”, and Luther Ingram’s hit record “Ain’t that loving you.”  He also played bass on the hit record produced by Al Bell entitled “The 60-minute Man.” by Rufus Thomas.

Since then, he has played as a solo act in churches around the U.S. which include: Springfield, Massachusetts; Detroit, Lansing, Michigan; Dayton, Columbus, Ohio; Pomona, Oakland, San Bernardino, California; Atlanta, Georgia, and Meridian, Mississippi.

When God called Atibahh to a life of salvation in October of 1983, and a minister of music, he was filled with the Holy Spirit and became sold-out to Jesus Christ, and the work prepared for him in the Gospel of the Kingdom.  Since that time, he has played with a gospel group called the Tribe of Judah, featuring Cinque Cullar. He has served as a minister of music from 1983 to present; and he is an active member of Macedonia Miracle Kingdom & Worship Center where the Honorable Bishop Leo S. Lewis is Pastor.  His vision is simply to do the will of God and to minister to others through his gospel inspired contemporary Christian music.

 

Reflections of My Gift of Music

Why do you do the music you do?
The reason I do the music is because music is the second greatest power there is and God chose me to bring to this world the expression of music He would have me to express for His glory and I love what He is doing for me through the music.

What drive me to do what I do?
I am driven by the love-based and inspiration that was first given to me to live a life of giving this wonderful gift of music. 

How do I define that music that I do?
The music that I do is touching, uplifting and changing the lives of whoever is listening and giving hope of a brighter day.

What type of music I play?
The kind of music I play is the kind of music I grew up on and the music I presently love and that is music that touches people and changes their lives. Also, music they can relate to everyday life. That kind of music is soul music and contemporary gospel.
