For most of the past 20 years Tim Maurer's attention was given to his career as a New York City Police Officer. And for those 20 years Tim held to a vision of one day recording a project to the glory of God. With the help of 6-time Grammy award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle choir director Carol Cymbala, and legendary producer Lari Goss, Tim was able to realize the vision. During Tim's years as a police officer Tim sang part time for the New York City Police Department's Ceremonial Unit singing the national anthem throughout New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area. Tim sang for professional sporting events like the NHL team, New York Islanders, as well as police benefit concerts at Carnegie Hall, and a host of political and civic events around New York City. Tim was also featured along with other police department singers on ABC's Nightline during the aftermath of 9/11. Tim also was interviewed and sang on PAX television special Amazing Grace For many years Tim also sang with a great choir called the Christ Tabernacle Choir in Glendale Queens New York under the direction of Pastor Steve Carey. Tim sang the solo on their first release "Inhabit The Praise", the song "It's My Desire". Recently Tim moved over to the "mother" church of Christ Tabernacle, The Brooklyn Tabernacle where he joined the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Singers under the direction of his Aunt, Carol Cymbala. Tim has traveled on tour extensively with the Singers across the U.S.A. and to South Korea and Japan in recent months singing the title song "I'm Amazed" off the Choir's most recent recording. Tim's desire has been to sing the praises of his Friend and Savior Jesus. "He has been the one to preserve my life these many years", Tim says, "He surrounded me with songs of deliverance when I needed them the most, and the Lord knows I needed them working as a police officer in New York City". Tim goes on to say "this is about a relationship with a real friend and not at all about religion".
