André Henry


André Henry is an NYC-based singer, songwriter, and producer from Atlanta, whose music draws from the genres of soul, jazz, and pop.  While a student at Florida’s Southeastern University, he wrote and arranged songs for the campus choirs - one of which, “Bless the Lord,” was featured on The Inspiration Network.  He followed the urban open mic circuit to Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar, catching the attention of the iconic songwriting duo.  In the summer of 2011, he collaborated with them on Sir Cliff Richard’s hit album, Soulicious, for which he arranged four songs, including his original, “Don’t Say You Love Me (It’ll Ruin My Day).”  Mr. Henry is currently working on a book and album entitled Too Young to Die: How I Nearly Jumped Off a Bridge and the Songs That Saved My Life.  He is also the Director of Worship and Arts Ministry at Glad Tidings Tabernacle in TriBeCa.
