Tim "Bishop" Brown formed the Miracle Mass Choir after suffering a serious accident that left him unable to talk, walk, or breathe without assistance. Despite his tragedy, Brown had not lost faith in God and in the early '90s, he decided to form the Miracle Mass Choir as a tribute to his Lord. He recruited a number of saved and born-again young adults from 15 different churches and the outfit began touring throughout America. Eventually, the Miracle Mass Choir had earned a large fan following, which led to a number of prestigious gigs, including appearances in the Broadway plays Mama I'm Sorry, Wicked Ways, Oedipus & the Gospel at Colonus, and a spot at 1995's Gospel Music Workshop of America's New Artist Showcase in Los Angeles. That year, they also released their debut album, Miracle My Testimony. Over the next two years, their popularity increased as they continued to tour and work charity events, including fundraisers for the homeless organized by Paul Newman and Richard Dreyfuss. During that time, they also sang live with such artists as H.B. Barnum & Life, the Clara Ward Singers, Tevin Campbell, Rev. James Moore, Shirley Caesar, and Phillip Bailey.
