Corey Mills was born in Helena, Arkansas to Carla Mills and Carlos Williams in February 26, 1989. He lived there for twelve years . At age eight, Mills began writing poetry, and furthered his ability as he grew. Mills was noticed by many while consistently being nominated best poet of his age in the USA. At the age of eighteen, Mills began his walk with God. Accordingly, his faith in and knowledge of God through the Spirit (he claims) and the Scriptures expanded beyond what he thought was possible.
In 2009, Corey Mills started with an experiment he had not heard of- Christian Rap. One month after the completion of his first project, Mills released his first unofficial album -'Inhale the Word of God'- within his hometown, Tunica, MS, then spread to Memphis, TN, and Arkansas; later, his music spread through many online radio stations. People began to attach to his music, and demanded more. Mills then received offers to go on tour and become a part of music labels. Again, He denied them. His explanation was that he didn't understand the possibilities that were offered. Mills later unofficially released his first mixtape 'The Beginning Mixtape vol. 1' where he utilized some of the instrumentals made famous by artists such as Roscoe Dash, Waka-Flocka Flame and Young Jeezy. During that time, Mills had become an associate minister for Commerce Boulevard Christian Church under the leadership of Pastor Evelyn Hubbard- in Robinsonville, Mississippi. He had also become a part of the Tunica Gospel Choir, which appeared on Bobby Jones Gospel show on the Word Network.
After releasing the mixtape, Corey Mills began his third project ‘The Blood of Jesus Cleanses’. While he made a few songs for the album- recorded by Nothing-But-Love Records in Tunica, Mississippi, it was never finished. Mills moved to Orange Beach, Alabama in February, 2012 where he began writing more contemporary and Traditional/Soul Gospel. He moved to Pensacola, Florida in April of 2013, and then Gulf Shores, Alabama in 2015. Since, he has released three singles, one EP (Proposal), and anticipate a full album release in 2015.
As a Floridian, Corey wrote, composed, and produced the singles 'Proposal'- released March 24, 2014- and 'You Will Know'- released April 8, 2014. He recently released an Extended Play album titled 'Proposal'- released on November 20, 2014- after the name of his first officially released single. Mills is thrilled to let us know that this album may be the first and last album that he uses a mobile phone to record. Yes, you heard it correctly! He used a mobile phone to record his vocals for every song on the EP 'Proposal' and other additional software.
