From day one singer George Nooks has proven that when it comes on to his talent, he is multifaceted. It started in the early years of his career when he managed to score hits under two different names.
Most artistes find it difficult enough to make that connection under one moniker, but for George Nooks he pulled it off with his birth name and under his moniker Prince Mohammed – with songs such as Forty Legs, Bubbling and the very popular JC Lodge combination Someone Loves You Honey.
Fast forward to the 2000 and Nooks has once again shown that he cannot be boxed in where his talent is concerned. After chalking up one hit after another with his smooth voice delivering perennial favorites such as Left With A Broken Heart, Hero, Since I Fell For You, Riding For A Fall and the Chilites cover Homely Girl, Nooks turned his attention to gospel and the connection was instant!
Fast forward to 2021 and the impressive trail he has made since he stamped his mark with God Is Standing By to gospel classic covers including Ride Out Your Storm, I Must Tell Jesus, God Is Always There For Me and so many others which sees him being a top request for church as well as secular events.
How does he do it?
It’s all about love is what the artist will tell you as he says love for his mother and grandmother saw him honoring her last request that he sings the songs of Zion. His only regret is that she never lived to listen the first track he did for her, but in his heart he believes she knows.
Whether gospel or the feel good love songs for his many fans, George Nooks who got his first break in 1974 as a deejay on Discomix recording the covers of an artiste he held in high regard and admiration Dennis Brown’s Money In My Pocket and How Could I Leave.
Nooks has over the years since he first broke out on the scene continued recording albums such as Today and other singles.
As 2021 winds down Nooks has shown that there is no slowing down where his career is concerned. COVID-19 pandemic might have put a dent in live shows and slowed down the entertainment sector a bit, but when it comes on to getting a positive voice out there…there is no slowing down.
His latest album on the TAD’S imprint has shown that – Through It All – is an album for the times with tracks such as You Are God, He’ll Do It Again, Where Do I Go and God of the Mountain.
Commenting on the album, Nooks said it speaks to his life, the times and just to anyone who is looking for hope and encouragement.
