City Slang: Detroit gospel star hits Billboard top 10

Local gospel star Tim Bowman Jr.’s cd Beautiful has debuted at number 8 on this coming week’s Billboard Top Gospel Albums sales chart. Meanwhile, his single “Free” is making its way towards the top 10. Not bad, all things considered.

According to a statement, “America first noticed Tim Bowman Jr. when he scatted on the vamp of his aunt Vickie Winans’ 2009 Top 10 radio smash, “How I Got Over”. However, the gifted 22-year old Wayne State University pharmacy student is no longer singing in the background. The son of #1 smooth jazz guitarist Tim Bowman, Bowman is gearing up for a long career and is studying pharmacy as a back up.”

“I’m totally committed to my music career,” says Bowman. “However, it’s just wise to have a back-up plan just in case...”

Congratulations Tim.
