Pray For Your Son Debut

Jeverson Ramirez is from the wonderful island of Grenada.  He is forging ahead making his gospel debut single Pray For Your Son an anthem for the nations. The song Pray For Your Son is receiving positive recognition.  Jeverson joined Grenada’s Presentation Brothers College Choir to remix his song.  The song was birthed from an outcry from George Floyd’s murder. In the midst of a pandemic and constant abuse of black men being abused and killed by police officers seems to be a trend that is very disheartening. Jeverson never thought he would be a solo artist. For the most part he sang as a group member or in a choir. He tried to sing solo but he was strongly criticized for his voice not being “strong enough.”  Although many doubted his ability, God did not. He would soon become a solo artist with two hit singles, Pray For Your Son and Move. Quickly making his voice heard all over the world from Grenada.

Soul Session Vol. 1

Travis Higgins is a musician, recording artist and songwriter. He is no stranger to soul and inspirational music.  Born the son of a pastor, Higgins grew up in his father’s church. The drums were his first introduction to musicianship. Later, he transitioned to piano and organ. When he got hit with the music bug it was not gospel music.  He enjoyed hip-hop and secular music and even played for a few well-known artists.  Travis Higgins credits his mother for training his musical ear by listening to gospel greats like Walter Hawkins, the Winans, Rance Allen, and other soulful gospel recordings. Her secular playlist included sounds of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5 to name a few. Travis Higgins was unknowingly becoming a student of soul music.  Which can be heard on his debut project Soul Session Vol. 1.  Soul Session Vol.1 is a breath of fresh air for those missing good soul music.
