With two full albums, six hit singles, sixteen music awards, including Best Gospel Artist & Artist of the Year, and countless penned songs, Javon Inman remains focused on his purpose: minister music that conveys the heart of God.
It was his grandfather’s church, New Life C.O.G.I.C. (Massillon, OH), where 4-year old Javon would sing his first solo in the Sunshine Band. His parents recognized his musical gifts early on and kept him active in Howard University Children’s Theatre Productions (Washington, DC), as well as gospel, concert, and chamber choirs. The music ministry at Refreshing Spring C.O.G.I.C. (Riverdale, MD) further cultivated his gifts and prepared him to serve in leadership roles such as Minister of Music, Praise & Worship Leader, and Choir Director.
He collaborated with fellow award-winning Gospel recording artists and friends CD Porter and Rob Mercer to form the group DRK2LGHT during a missions and ministry trip to West Africa, The Gambia in 2016. Their debut single “He Keeps On,” written by Javon, was then followed by their Billboard chart-topping single “Fix My Heart,” garnering nationwide success. Understanding this collaboration is bigger than them, DRK2LGHT partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to shine the light on the life-saving work they provide to pediatric patients and their families across the globe. DRK2LGHT penned an anthem entitled, “St. Jude Strong” which tells the story of St. Jude that ‘no child should die in the dawn of life.’ “St. Jude Strong” proceeds are donated to St. Jude to further advance their vision. “Considering the “least of these” is what God wants us to concern ourselves with -everything else is secondary,” Inman says.
Whether Javon is leading corporate worship, directing the choir or penning a soul-stirring song, he is a mainstay in Gospel music and shows no signs of slowing down. Javon says, “God is oftentimes limited to the big stuff happening in our world, but He cares deeply about the minute stuff in our lives, too. I want my music to illuminate that beautiful part in a creative way.”
Javon currently lives in Maryland with his wife and two sons.
