Born, raised and highly symbolic of the Chicago music scene, Brother Dillard has made a name and living for himself as a musical force to be reckoned with. Under the tutelage of Rev. Milton Brunson and the Thompson Community Singers for nearly eight years, Ricky learned a lot about the artistry and business of managing a successful recording choir, before finally launching the New Generation Chorale, back in ’88. His uniquely theatrical performance captures the energy, flare and spirit of Chicago church worship. While his choir’s deafening vibrato and vocal acrobatics is the examination of choral ministries across the country.
Ricky Dillard recently added to his long list of responsibilities by accepting his new role as Minister of Worship & Arts at the Tabernacle of Hope International Church of God In Christ in Atlanta, Georgia.
