Butler was born as Myron Demond Butler, on July 27, 1974 just outside Tampa, Florida in the city of Bradenton, Florida, and he was raised in Dallas, Texas.

At an early age, Myron Butler developed an appreciation for music and, at 17, his first song, “Lift Him Up”, was recorded by Dallas’ DFW Mass Choir. While working on the recording, Butler became good friends with the choir’s director Kirk Franklin.

During his last two years of high-school, Myron formed a community choir of his teen-aged peers in Dallas, but, upon graduation, he left them to pursue a degree in psychology at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. After completing his freshman year, Butler decided not to return to school. He remained in Atlanta for a year before deciding to return to Dallas, where his choir had continued to grow, in spite of changes in personnel. The group, which had become popular in the area began calling itself God’s Property and welcomed Myron as their main choral director.

Returning to Dallas allowed Myron Butler to renew his friendship with Franklin, and God’s Property offered backup vocals for Franklin and The Family on occasional dates in and around Dallas. He would later join Franklin’s group One Nation Crew for that group’s short existence.

He also did a song with a Dallas based youth choir called Total Praise on their CD “Faithfulness”. Butler also serves as minister of music at Bishop T.D Jakes mega church, The Potter’s House in Dallas, Tx.

He is married to Timberlyn Butler, and they were married on July 5, 2003.
