I tried using the clipping mask but all I get is this:

I prepared a background object as shown below. Text was an outlined group filled with black. I had to ungroup the outlined text and make it a compound path. Selected both the compound path and the background and used Object > Clipping path > Make

SUCCES! Thank you so much! I made a group with the gradient and a maroon rectangle behind then did the clipping mask. Thank you again!
