Michael was born September 10, 1978, the oldest of five children. He spent his childhood in many homes throughout Los Angeles County, because for much of his childhood he was a ward of the state also known as a “foster child”. In the midst of his many transitions, through hard trials, despite his personal knowledge, God was keeping him.
Michael met and married his wife, Akilah in December 1994. He was sixteen at the time. Starting his life so early there were many things he was not prepared for mostly because he lacked steady parental figures in his life. But let me reiterate, God was keeping him.
In 1995 his first daughter was born. Nancy was an awesome blessing to both of her parents. In 1999 Michael was awarded custody of his 3 younger siblings; DeAnna, Antonyo, and Ryesha, who were in foster care as well. For 10 years he raised loved and taught them just as much as his own daughter. In 2009 Michael’s family was reconciled. His mother who had many struggles in the past was now ready to move forward in life. And although Michael was a grown man for many years his relationship with his mother was restored and his brother and sisters were reunited with her.In 2004 Michael was blessed with his second daughter Kaiyah, and his third daughter Rosaleyn in 2009.
Michael has been and is presently happily married to his high school sweet heart Akilah for 19 years. May God continue to bless and keep him.
In 2002 Michael and his wife started an independent recording label named “Spirit Filled Records” as a result of his love for music and the vocal gifting that God gave to him. Michael debut as the premier artist.
“R&P stands for Rhythm & Praise. Michael doesn’t have any blues for you. This is a ballad artist who is talented in many other areas including the engineering and production of all SFR Artists. This writer/musician/singer combines a love for R&B with contemporary gospel to create R&P. He has a style that anyone can relate to, even you. All I have to say is expect the unexpected, and you’ll be pleased that you did.
Michael was brought up in the church and loved to go… you guessed it… to hear the choir sing. But it was not until his early adult life that Michael realized his true love for the gospel. As a young man Mike embraced many types of music but once he came to know the Lord for himself he made a life changing decision. Music had always played a pivotal roll in his journey’s and now it is his hearts desire to let the world know how good God is through Ministry.
But this is not the end of the story Michael Hart, now Pastor Hart still continues his ministry in music just in a different capacity. As the shepherd of Spirit Filled Family Church his music not only reaches souls around the world but he inspires others to grow in their spiritual giftings, whether singing or teaching… God has anointed him.
