Win Thompkins - Producer/Singer/Songwriter
Win Thompkins was born and raised in Southern Florida in a happy Christian home filled with laughter, music & songs. He is the third oldest of ten children. Like most in the industry and especially coming from a home such as his, it was only natural that “Win” and his siblings sang in the church choir. As the young men grew into talented teenagers, he and his brothers travelled and sang gospel music locally and nationally.

The “Ambassador” summons and embraces you with sweetness. It leaves you relaxed, uplifted and definitely moves you for more.

In 2009 Win released another chart breaking CD entitled “The Leaning Tree” under the name of Win Thompkins & The Stompers on NLR Records and re-released it on MCG Records/Humility Music Group.
