“Music is strong. When people listen to this, they may be affected. They answer.” — Ray Charles. Richmond police officer Mervyn Mayo went viral after posting his cover of a song titled “The Best Of Me”, a gospel song by Marvin Sapp. Before this video went viral, Mayo sang and uploaded the video to the Internet, so he was surprised when his cover hit 98k views. Mayo has loved music since childhood.
In fact, he started playing the piano when he was only 13 years old. He found his passion at a young age and began preaching the gospel at events, sports arenas, and churches. Mayo shared his faith and gospel through his music. In addition to being an active music minister, Mayo is also a dedicated police officer and school counselor.
As it turned out, Mayo has been doing this for a long time, so he was in complete shock when one of his videos went viral. According to the Minister of Music, he often recorded his performance. So he could watch it and see what he could do better.
