“I am driven to stomp on the devil, who would dare to try to steal God’s word from my mouth, His music from my fingers, and the boots from my feet. I love you all and thank you for your obedience to God and compassion for me in my greatest time of need so that we can stand together once again.” – (Kim Clement.com.

Kim Clement had become world renowned as “the Singing Prophet” while living, and the energy waves of certain prophesies reverberate as if he is still behind the microphone and keyboard.
Though Kim was born in an apartheid-divided land, his co-founding of the first non-racial church there, “The Lyric Christian Center,” united socio-politically afflicted people in South Africa under Christ. He was already an advanced “Trinity College of Music” student with a film score on his resume, yet also advanced in personal affliction having faced the prospect of a violent death at 17 when an unknown man stabbed him in the chest in a night club bathroom. The situation was compounded by simultaneously overdosing on heroin when it happened. Collapsing in the street after stumbling out of the club, a minister’s words pronounced over him at the age of 9 rang true, even mentioning the street scene within them: “Jesus walks in the streets still today. One day you will need him, just call on him and he will touch you.” As it were, after countless people passed by, a follower of Christ scooped him up and drove him to the hospital. His life was dedicated to the Lord from that point on, working as a drug counselor, Director Of Music, Pastor, and a coordination therapist to challenged children. In 1981, after marrying his beloved Jane Elizabeth Barnes in 1978, Kim started making 5 annual trips to the United States and back, continuing to assist the Durban, South Africa church in his homeland. In 1991 he and his family fully relocated to the U.S., leading to the founding of “The Warriors Of The New Millennium” in Detroit, Michigan, thence greatly expanding his ministerial footprint, delivering messages of hope and destiny wrapped in a musical style countless many, from everyday people to royalty, came to know.
