After six years of public silence, 24-year-old Robert Pierre returns, with his long-awaited fourth solo project: Nothing Without You. Despite three albums under his belt and songs spinning on the radio, Pierre made the choice to take an extended break from touring to focus on college and to work, full-time, in his local church. Little did he know how God would use this time to shape and season him. Now a husband and college graduate, Pierre emerges with a more mature sound and conviction. Drawing from personal heartaches, triumphs and challenges, Pierre has written this album specifically for the church, with worship songs that ascribe glory to the Lord.
Since the age of thirteen, Pierre has been professionally recording and, by the time he was fourteen, began touring as a featured artist for various nation-wide events. As a high school junior with several singles spinning on the radio, Pierre was asked to join the Winter Jam 2010 line-up. He was, at the time, their youngest-ever artist and performed for an accumulated audience of over 500,000 during that 44-city tour. But the size of the audience is not Pierre’s focus… it is, rather, the conviction to use his gifts in whichever area God chooses to place him.
The title of his 2011 album, I’m All In, summed up this artist’s attitude about living for God. Through his teens, whether being a student in Orlando, writing and recording music in Nashville, advocating the Sanctity of Life in Washington DC or being on stage throughout the country, Pierre’s intense personality was always focused on reflecting God through the project at hand. However, it was when Pierre made the decision to come “off the road,” in order to pursue his college education, that God began to intensify his love for the local church.
“As I began to serve as the worship leader, my passion was quickly directed to church work. I felt that there was no greater use of my talents than to give them back to the Lord and His church. Whether leading people in lifting high the name of Jesus through worship, or proclaiming His Word without apology, I wanted to use every resources God had given me to serve His church. My heart and my passion became to write songs that the church would proclaim back to the Lord. Having lead worship for eight years, my desire is to help train and equip the local church worship leader to best minister to their congregation.”
In 2014, Pierre was married and is currently on staff at Harvest Bible Chapel Winter Garden. Pierre has been an integral member of two church plants in the Orlando area and has been trained through Harvest Bible Fellowship. He runs both the adult and student-ministry music programs, coordinating song-writers, vocalists and instrumentalists. He coordinates and contributes to song writing workshops, vocal training and, in 2013, he produced and recorded Harvest Live, a live worship CD completely comprised by and for the members of his church. But music isn’t the only outlet Pierre uses to express his passion for God. Embodying the values and ideals of the worship leader, Pierre also has the heart of a pastor. In addition to his Worship role, he is the head of Student Ministry at his church and has used his own life experiences, as well as his exposure to thousands of young people, nation-wide, to relate to the needs of his students.
