Background Track: "Ordinary Just Won't Do" by Commissioned; lead vocal: Mitchell Jones (and Keith Staten, who is not featured on this sample); keyboard/piano by Michael Brooks.

He has just released a new album, Michael Brooks & Royal Priesthood, which was released in 2005.

Michael Brooks was a part of the original Commissioned. He played the keyboards, synclavier, piano, and organ, and was one of the group's main songwriters and producers along with Fred Hammond. Their partnership helped make Commissioned a winning group. Some of his best songs are "You've Got A Friend", "Strange Land", "Keep On Blessing Me", "Back in the Saddle", "He Set Me Free", "Hide The Word", and "Go Tell Somebody". He left the group after the Commissioned album State of Mind, but continually working with songwriting and producing hits for Witness (he wrote about 95% of Witness' songs). He had also worked with guitarist Eric Brice, Fred Hammond, Michael Williams, and organist Earl Wright Jr., all of whom worked with Commissioned at certain points in time. He is married to Witness lead singer Lisa Page. He released a solo album, Choice to Rejoice with his own group, Michael Brooks & The Nation in 1996 on A&M Records. He also works with young Detroit groups. It is said that he willingly did not participate in the Commissioned Reunion.

He has a new group called Michael Brooks & Royal Priesthood, and a new label in conjunction with Comin' Atcha Music (which houses Parkes Stewart) - Michael Brooks Music/Comin' Atcha Music
