Bass The Lord Productions




According to Charlie’s mother Hannah, Charlie’s love for music started before he could walk. At age five, Charlie began teaching himself piano, then at twelve years old, he began taking lessons on the trombone and at age thirteen the bass. After 2 ½ years majoring in music at Texas Tech University, Charlie decided to move to Dallas, Texas and started to perform with Phyrework, a top jazz fusion band in Dallas.

This lasted seven years. While playing with Phyrework, Charlie was also recording with two of his cousins and two local friends from Lubbock, Tx. The name of this band was: LuBach, named in honor of the city they were all from. LuBach was in the running for a major recording contract which eventually was awarded to the now very popular R&B band: Tony, Toni, Tone.

As Charlie’s music career was blossoming, he moved to LA like most talented musicians do, to get closer to the music industry. However God had another plan. On January 26, 1990, Charlie gave his life to Christ. Changed forever, Charlie enrolled in bible college and in 1996, Charlie became an ordained minister. In 1993, Charlie began playing bass for Prophet Kim Clement and in 1994 became Kim’s Worship and Praise leader. During this time he was able to work with the now very popular Israel Houghton of Israel and New Breed, who was also trained prophetically under prophet Kim Clement.

In 2004, Kim anointed Charlie to do additional ministry for local churches. Operation Higher Praise was born, which later became BTL (Bass The Lord) Productions. Whether Charlie is ministering with Kim Clement in front of millions, or on his own at a local church, it is guaranteed he will pour out his heart and deposit a blessing that will last a lifetime.


Charlie and Sharon, his loving wife of 34 years (they dated for 6 years), have three wonderful and talented adult children, Gerald, Sean & Ashley Jordan. They also have been blessed with three grand-children, Izaiah, Levi, & Jasyah. Charlie and Sharon now reside in Southern California.

Charlie’s lovely wife of 34 years has been inspirational in his life since they met back in Lubbock, TX in 1975. She’s a registered nurse and a wonderful mother, and loves God totally with all of her heart. She’s still helping not only Charlie with his ministry, but continues to give of her time to anyone who needs help.
