Darkchild Gospel Founder Fred “Uncle Freddie” Jerkins III is full of surprises.
This summer he announced a new cancer awareness project, label partnership and new platform for indie artists. First up, A Project of Healing.
It’s a series of gospel and mainstream compilation albums that will benefit cancer empowerment and education. The first release, which is due October 2017, features artists including Bishop Paul S. Morton, Lowell Pye, Darlene McCoy, Alexis Spight, Jonathan Nelson, Trin-I-Tee 5:7 and more. It’s led by a single featuring Jonathan Nelson called “We Won” (listen below).
In addition, his new label partnership comes as a joint business venture with By Any Means Necessary (founded by Jermaine Dolly’s manager Jerome Hunt).
“I’m very excited about the different projects we have going on from Jermaine Dolly to the cancer awareness project which is close to my heart,” Jerkins says. “With the favor of God, I expect great things with all that we do.”
Furthermore, Jerkins plans to develop a platform where independent artists can be heard.
