Kareem has played for some of the Gospel greats such as Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Bishop Marvin Winans, Elder Jae Nixon & Dunamis, and The Godfather of Gospel Music, The Late Pastor Timothy Wright.
Mr. Williams is currently playing for Overseer Raheem Caldwell and Restoration Prophetic Outreach Ministry in Brooklyn, New York and gospel group Andre Byrd & 180.
