James Williams – Finest Black Music is his life
When you think about the finest „Black Music“ here in Germany, the first thing that comes to mind is James Williams and his band „All That“. Since 1997 „All That“ is one of the leading Black Music bands in Germany. Their music ranges from gospel, R&B, soul, reggae, rap, hip hop and blues to Sinatra classics.
James and his band are at home everywhere and have already inspired people around the world with their feeling for black music. They are celebrity magnets, show stars and real artists. This cult band knows how to bring the audience to the boil perfectly. Depending on the engagement or task, the 4-piece band grows up to 29 band members, like at the cinema for peace.
When they perform, you’re close to celebrities and a lot of good mood. Thomas Gottschalk already paid tribute to them, Victoria Beckham danced to their music, Franz Beckenbauer cheered, Tom Cruise asked for an autograph, Prince Albert of Monaco was thrilled and Sepp Blattner wanted a photo as a souvenir.
He has been working with Dr. Hermann Bühlbecker for many years. He travels internationally, is at home in Hollywood and trusts in his music feeling. Williams is networked worldwide and supports the annual Lambertz Monday Night, the world’s sweetest party.

But who is James Williams, who has worked with music greats like The Temptations, Smokie, Usher, Die Prinzen and Boy George – to name but a few?
He was born in the USA and comes from an artistic family. James Williams (58) has been living in Germany since the age of 18, has his main residence here, lives in Idar-Oberstein and commutes between the USA and Germany. The former basketball professional is still an enthusiastic sportsman. He likes boxing, running and training in the gym.
But his first great love is music. This passion determines his life and inspires him.
When asked what his favourite music is, he says: „I am one of the few artists who can sing more than 1000 songs from the period 1920-2017, whether it is the Black Eyed Peas, a Big Band sound, Hip Hop or Rap. I like everything.“ When asked, „What’s your favorite song?“ he says, „The one I’m singing right now.“
What sets him apart is his incredible knowledge of German history. He is very interested in our country, and even our Chancellor Angela Merkel noticed how comprehensive and remarkable his knowledge of this country is.
James Williams travels the world a lot. Although he was born in the USA, he prefers Germany as his adopted country.
When asked what he likes about Germany, he answers: „I am very proud to live here. Germany has a very interesting culture and history. Many Germans have forgotten how beautiful, how wonderful this country is and what it has to offer. Anyway, I prefer to live in Germany. I like to go to the USA to visit friends and make music. But my love belongs to Germany and my music.“
Astrid Arens – The VOICE in the world of business (quote from US media), leading speaker and expert in neurocommunication and neuromarketing, explained in an interview with James Williams that he is a role model for us Germans in terms of pride and passion. His inner attitude, especially his language and its implementation in music, are unique. Language is something that unites the planet, that inspires it, and in combination with music it exerts true magic. Astrid Arens quotes: „Words are magic and with magic we change the world.“
It is incredibly impressive to experience how proud people of other nationalities are to live and work here in Germany.
James is certainly a role model for us and many others and proof that international understanding works and is a question of passion, language and inner attitude.
Despite his worldwide success James has remained a very down-to-earth guy. Always interested in life with an open ear for his friends. „We are always happy to make people happy with our music.“ This is his message, 150% of which he lives.
A very special person, an exceptional talent, a full-blooded musician, a cosmopolitan who unites Germany and the USA in a special way. He lives his relationship and is proud of his German-American background.
