Ricky Adkisson


Ricky was born in Milan, TN. on March 16, 1967 to a very musical family. His singing career began at a very early age when he became a member of the Adkisson Family Singers. His grandparents formed the gospel group to spread the word with glorious song throughout West Tennessee. 

Learning to sing as a member of a strong vocal group and perform as a soloist, Ricky was able to easily fit into a variety of gospel singing groups. He began as a young teenager singing with the Tennessee Hummingbirds and continued to perform throughout his teen years with gospel groups in West Tennessee such as the Wings of Faith, Jackson Spiritual Travelers and the Gospel Jubilees.

One of the most memorable and important times in Ricky’s career came when he was invited to sing with the nationally famous R&B group, The Stylistics. He traveled extensively with the Stylistics for two years.

This opportunity and experience led Ricky to accept an invitation from the Gospel Lights to be their lead singer. His association with the Gospel Lights resulted in many popular performances and two praiseworthy CD’s.

Ricky’s high pure golden voice was aged to perfection by now and ready for what has turned out to be the ideal partnership for both Ricky and the King Beez. He was introduced to the King Beez in mid 2007 at Isaac Hayes’ famous club in downtown Memphis where he sat in and sang a couple of songs and as they say the rest is history. He sings lead with the King Beez and continues to wow crowds wherever he and they perform.
