Jazz Vocalist Robert E. Person and Pianist Allyn Johnson Collaborate and Acknowledge Black History Month With Socially Conscious Anthem “LET MY PEOPLE LIVE” ||

Music has the power to inspire, heal and ignite change. Singer Robert E. Person and pianist Allyn Johnson have penned “Let My People Live”, a collaborative musical statement promoting peace, unity and love amid the perils of todays society. “Let My People Live”, available now on iTunes, Google Play and other digital music outlets, examines the recent social conditions of police brutality, heightened racial conflict and the many challenges of cultural acceptance.

In acknowledgement of Black History Month and in personal conviction to encourage unity on a global scale, jazzmen Person and Johnson created this emotionally charged and intricately arranged anthem of awareness. They stylistically merged in trumpeter Dre King and sanctioned rapper Deacon Izzy to flow a poetic account of the growing tragic occurrences played out in the communities of the U.S.

“All lives won’t matter until black lives do,” Deacon Izzy conveys. “As artists, we will always speak truth through our music. I ask that you hear our voice, understand our story and walk with us as we change the world for the better. We will never forget those we have lost in the struggle for equal treatment under the law. They are always with us and we honor their legacy through this song.”

Music, in many cases, is the bridge to social movements. Person and his musical colleagues have commissioned themselves to use Jazz, Inspirational music, Rap and lyrics as a tool of goodwill and in advocacy of human tolerance. “Let My People Live is my first effort at lending my voice to a movement,” Person shares. “It is my intent to affirm and promote that love always wins.”

Although the many social situations that plague our world are difficult and sometimes seem hopeless, the message in “Let My People Live” is simple – “We all are human and deserve to be treated as such,” says Allyn Johnson. Applying and sharing this simple value can bring a wellspring of hope. Individually, each person must do their part to contribute positively to society and respect one another, and that starts from within. We must keep our hearts with all diligence, for out of the heart are the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). Spread love and live!

Kirk Franklin garners two wins to collect his 11th and 12th GRAMMY® Awards | @KirkFranklin |

RCA Inspiration congratulates Kirk Franklin, as the multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar was honored with two more awards to add to his collection, taking home hardware in both Gospel categories at the 59th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, held live from Los Angeles. The prolific artist, songwriter, and producer won Best Gospel Album for his chart-topper LOSING MY RELIGION (Fo Yo Soul Recordings/RCA Records), and won the Best Gospel Performance/Song category for the second consecutive year, as the songwriter on Tamela Mann’s hit “God Provides”, which marks his eleventh and twelfth GRAMMY® Award wins.

Kirk Franklin also lit up the stage along with Tamela Mann last night on the GRAMMY® Awards, with a featured live appearance on Chance The Rapper’s performance of “How Great”/ “All We Got”.

Kirk Franklin says: “I know it’s cliché to say that it never gets old to be nominated or even considered to be a part of so many talented artists in these categories, but it is sincerely the truth. I’m grateful now more than ever and I’m humbled by every moment God kindly gives me.”

Phil Thornton (RCA Inspiration SVP and General Manager) says: “Congratulations to Kirk Franklin and Fo Yo Soul for their recognition by The Recording Academy® with these GRAMMY® Award wins! We are honored to celebrate their incredible projects over the past year, and collaborate in ongoing work reaching across boundaries and bringing inspiring, powerful music to everyone.”

Jor’dan Armstrong Boosts Good ‘VIBES’ Only in Forthcoming Culturally-Themed EP | @WheresJor_Dan |

Artist, songwriter and producer Jor’Dan Armstrong will be entering Spring 2017 with a bunch of good vibes as he fuses soulful vocals over smooth tropical beats on a 7-track EP sure to spark a reflective, feel-good mood. Fittingly so, he calls the new project VIBES.

VIBES follows his 2016 EP, Confident, which debuted at no. 13 on the Billboard gospel album charts. At first listen, one might be shocked to know Armstrong isn’t from the islands, yet he was able to adapt and create a unique flow of his own that he hopes people gravitate toward in the same way he says he was attracted to the vitalizing Caribbean “music and vibes” that “make you want to dance.” Armstrong carefully constructed VIBES with his best friend, business partner, and producer, Jeshua “TedyP” Williams.

“I’ve always wanted to do a project like this,” he says. “I feel like it’s really dope that I’m able to be an artist [with] freedom in what type of music I want to do. I don’t feel the same every day as far as music. I think it’s so cool how Steve Jobs created iPods and music folders and things like that, to where we could pick any type of genre we wanted to hear and make it adapt to our day. I think the way that I create music is just really off of feeling. It’s really led by God and the spirit of God. Some days I feel like trap, some days I feel ratchet. Some days I feel classical, some days I feel worshipy – if that’s a word.”

Artistic freedom is evident on tracks like his next single, “Count It.” Pulling on a sound similar to “bounce music” signature out of his Louisiana hometown, Armstrong says, “The song is basically about counting your blessings.” His style changes lenses, but the focal point remains fixed on God’s promises of abundant love, incomparable consistency and teachable moments.

Pre-orders for VIBES will be available on all digital download sites starting Feb. 17, 2017 for a discounted rate of $5.99. Upon pre-order, three songs will be released before the full EP is officially released on March 3, 2017.
