About American Roots Revue
About Robert Robinson
Robert Robinson is reason to believe that the greatest music reaches every name and crosses every boundary, from audiences in the Pontiac Silverdome to troops in South Korea. Standing five foot five and sipping Diet Coke, Robert is “God’s canary.” He possesses the ability to sing any song and yet remain true to his vision.
At the tender age of 6, Robert began singing with his family as part of the Robinson Children. By 15, Robert was directing the church choir. In the early 90’s he started a gospel choir at Minneapolis Community College, then quit his job as a data processing expert to lead the 100 strong Twin Cities Community Gospel Choir. Today, Robinson is heralded by Minnesota Monthly Magazine as “the state’s most decorated group.” 1991 brought Robert a featured role in “Nightingale” at the world-renowned Theatre de la Jeune Lune. In 1992, Robert took part for the first time in Lorie Line’s Christmas tour and remained for 15 years with subsequent appearances on PBS and in Target stores nationwide.
Although Robert points to gospel greats Mahalia Jackson, Tramaine Hawkins, and Vanessa Bell Armstrong as inspiration, Robert Robinson works and lives in his own genre. Eventually, it came time for him to forge a new path, combining his ministry of gospel with a vast experience rooted in soul. He became producer, creative director and promoter of his own touring schedule and was named one of the “Ten Best Holiday Shows” by Metro Magazine in 2007.
People love Robert. Artists look to him for affirmation. Fans adore his inclusive personality. They don’t necessarily have to embrace gospel to embrace Robert and that is alright with him. It’s all about his soul.
