Vincent Tharpe

Vincent Tharpe – well known as the impassioned front man of the three-time Stellar Award nominated praise and worship ensemble Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis – has been appointed worship pastor of All Nations Worship Assembly, Memphis.

All Nations Worship Assembly, Memphis is a church plant of the fast-growing All Nations Fellowship headed by Apostle Matthew Stevenson. The Memphis location was started in 2017. Its senior pastor is the Rev. Brandon Clack.

“Vincent Tharpe has found a way to marry excellence and experience, presentation and power,” said Clack. “His songs send seasons of relief to the barren, broken and bitter. He is a necessary sound sent from Heaven!”

Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis recorded new live music this past fall and will have a new single serviced to radio in February.

A celebrated songwriter and choir director, Tharpe’s marks of distinction include his “willingness to empty himself so that he is 100 percent used by Christ.”

The Black & White Experience” – the ensemble’s latest live recording – features Lisa Knowles-Smith, Candy West, Myron Butler, Cristabel Clack and other dynamos well known in the Urban Worship canon. The first single – “Glory Up” – will be serviced to radio in February.

The ensemble also recently taped the Bobby Jones Show for the Impact Network, along with Tye Tribbett and Kim Burrell.

Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis is managed by industry veteran and Memphis native Zantino Kimmons, who catalyzed the success of powerhouse Lisa Knowles as well as her ensemble The Brown Sisters.

Kimmons’ One Voice  Media is also home to the Stellar Award-winning children’s group Anointed by God. In addition to being an accomplished artist manager and label head, Kimmons is musical choirmaster for Brown Missionary Baptist Church Mass and Sanctuary choirs in Southaven.
