RoMoHoMusic describes Roger Moore-Hodge as born in Barbados, the easternmost Caribbean island. He began singing onstage at the age of five, and soon relocated to Canada’s cultural epicenter of Montréal. Through the ’90s and until 2004, Moore-Hodge performed as tenor in two of Montréal’s premier gospel choirs, Genuine Faith and the R.O.C.K.
Both choirs took him across Canada and the U.S. to play at venues and events such as local churches, gospel concerts, jazz festivals, the Gospel Music Workshop of America, for Governor Generals, Queen Elizabeth II, and at the Summit of the Americas which hosted 35 heads of state from the western hemisphere.

“That was the restorative hands of God upon my life,” says Roger Moore-Hodge. “Being repositioned due to circumstances allowed me to receive the multitude of blessings God had in store for me. It’s as if the Prodigal Son made his way back home.”
Today he attends the Resurrection Center Church in Lachine, Québec as a member of the Worship and Arts Team there, and describes himself as “the proud husband of wife, Simone, and father of three beautiful, miraculous children, for which he gives God all the honor, glory and praise.”
