Mervyn Warren

Biography

Music manufacturer, songwriter, and composer who all wrote the rating for the 1996 film The Preacher’s Wife. He gained the 1989 Grammy Prize for Greatest Gospel Performance by way of a Duo for his melody “The Savior is normally Waiting around.” He originally prepared on participating in medical school and also examined biology and mathematics for a while, but couldn’t withstand the lure of music. He constructed and organized the musical rating for the 2001 intimate comedy ‘The Wedding ceremony Planner,’ starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey. He grew up by Mervyn Sr. and Barbara Warren inside the Seventh-day Adventists denomination where pop music and tempo and blues had been forbidden. He was punished for buying “Appreciation” by Globe, Wind & Fireplace when he was 12. He reinterpreted George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah” for “Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Special event,” a 1992 record featuring such performers as Quincy Jones, Vanessa Williams, and Stevie Question.
