Don Pope is a “Texas Tenor”, but not limited to one horn. He has a full rack of Woodwinds and can blow captivating solos from each and every horn.

After graduating from the Houston School of Performing and Visual Arts, Don went on to perform with musical groups including Archie Bell & the Drells and Toby Beau, before creating the group Don Pope and Friends, consisting of various musicians that come and go - great for a constant flow of new, fresh and sweet music.

Don currently lives with his wife, Charlotte, in Willis, Texas. He has four grown children and three grandchildren. His son, Robert, is often found sharing the stage, as a guitar and bass player. As an ordained minister, Don has been on staff at Grace International Church in Willis for over 20 years, as an associate pastor and worship director.

Many connections all over the globe have led to frequent traveling across the U.S. and other countries. He has ministered all over Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, and Germany, to name a few. What may have begun as just trips as a guest musician led to worship workshops, prophetic ministry and speaking engagements. His favor continues to open doors for him to make a great impact on each city he visits.
