Pugh, a Memphis native (now living in the Washington, D.C. area), was mentored by the late gospel great O’Landa Draper (who’s choir The Associates backed Billy Joel on his “River of Dreams” video in 1993). Pugh released his first solo CD in 2006 and showed off his five-octave vocals on the radio hit “Wrapped Up, Tied Up, Tangled Up.”

After years of making respectable forays into gospel, Pugh finally hit it big in 2009 with his No. 1 smash “Rain On Us,” which led to TV appearances on BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” and TBN’s “Praise The Lord.”
