The Inspiring Life of Gospel Singer Miles Caton

In every generation, a phenomenally talented artist emerges, bringing with them a thrilling and unique sound that rocks the industry. Miles Caton is one of them.

The gospel genre is one of the most popular music genres in the world, and it has become an essential part of many people’s lives.

There is no doubt that gospel singers are among the most talented singers out there, but when they release their music to the public, they are often judged by listeners on their vocal performance.

This can be very discouraging for many new gospel singers who don’t have a strong enough voice to produce these high-quality vocal performances.

But these new generations of gospel singers who are bringing a fresh, soulful sound to the genre is making the industry much more delightful.

In this article, we are going to take a look at Miles Caton, the new prodigy.

Early Life & Achievements

Miles Caton was born in 2005. He is the son of an evangelist, Timiney Figueroa, was born in Brooklyn, New York, and he is the fifth-generation of preachers whose parents are Bishop Eric R. Figueroa and Evangelist Doreen Figueroa is the co-founder of New Life Tabernacle, located in Brooklyn, New York.

Timiney was anointed at the age of three to start singing. This was the beginning of a powerful, global music ministry.

Timiney has a wealth of experience in the music industry.

He is a sought-after gospel artist and has performed alongside some of the most notable artists in his genre, including Grammy winner Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Tasha Cobbs, and Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, among many more. From an early age, she devoted time to teaching, directing, and improving Miles’s vocal performance.

And today, we can say that he is an anointed force of nature, as seen by his expressive, soulful, and beautifully rich body of work and voice.

Miles is best known for his powerful and distinctive vocals which he often employs to evoke the raw emotions of the song.

Out of all the competitions in this genre, one manages to stand out: Little Big Shots, which always gives a platform for exceptional children.

The first season of the show debuted in 2016 and was a huge success. There was another season in 2017, and the third aired in March.

Steve Harvey opened Season 3 of Little Big Shots with a star-studded lineup of talented kids. But the act the audience will never forget is this 12-year-old gospel singer Miles Caton. 

He picked the gospel song “For Every Mountain” by Kurt Carr.

Miles is more than familiar with the song.

Miles wanted to push the limits of his talent and challenging songs like “For Every Mountain” seem to be no match for him. This song calls for many high & long notes but nowhere in the song do you hear any trouble coming from Miles.

At the end of the performance, Miles had tears in his eyes as the entire audience rose to their feet. Steve walked onstage to be by his side, calling for everyone in attendance to put their hands together for this talented gospel singer.

I’m a huge fan of this singer and you will be too when you listen to his song!. He’ll take you to church, that’s for sure!

He’s been performing gospel music in church ever since someone decided to put a microphone in his hands, that was the day that the star was born.

You might think Little Big Shots is Miles’ big break, but it isn’t. His actual big break was last year when Jay-Z featured him in his music video or 8-minute short film, which is also the title of Jay-Z’s latest album.

That’s Miles in the very beginning singing the beginning of the song ‘Feeling Good’, made popular by Nina Simone.

Miles can sing gospel songs like experienced professionals, even though he is still only 16 years old! His large voice really helps his talent come to life.
