Though blind since birth, it seems the Lord blessed Gordon with profound musical talent in lieu of vision. When he was just three, Gordon amazed his family on Thanksgiving by sitting down at the piano and playing "Jesus Loves Me" with both hands. "My music is so eclectic today because I listened to every album I could find."

LOVE LOVE LOVE, garnered Mote a second Grammy nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album.

Balancing a busy music career with family time can be quite taxing but Gordon credits his wife Kimberly - as well as their three children, Samantha, Parker and Ashton - for keeping the balance there. "I am so blessed," Gordon beams. "Kimbelry is Super-Woman and I can't thank God enough for the blessings He has given to me both personally and professionally."
