Just Because You're You
Humble, devoted, and passionate are just a few words that describe singer-songwriter and producer, Perry Jenkins. Perry, a Philadelphia native with smooth vocals and a laid-back personality; musical roots stem from 'R&B'. Along with his siblings, Perry was the lead singer for the popular secular music group Galaxxy. Although Perry was familiar with gospel music his repertoire was R&B and Top 40. It was in Los Angeles when Perry made an inward decision to halt the project he was currently working on. He felt an overwhelming desire to shift from secular to gospel. Then he was introduced to the music ministry of 'Commission'. Shortly after conversing with one of the singers, his mind was made up! Perry knew God wanted him to glorify 'Him' in song. Perry knew he processed a gift and not just a talent to sing. By 2001 Perry released his first gospel CD titled, 'Keep Strong Faith'. Considered a new comer in the gospel field, he learned first hand how to keep strong faith. After the debut, Perry was afforded the opportunity to sing with various well-known artists throughout the Tri-State area as well as the Southern Regions abroad. 'Favor', Perry said, is what God have him when he learned that the local radio station WDAS-AM featured one of the songs on his CD, 'We Bow Down'. His music ministry keeps him busy! With one goal in mind, Perry continued to move forward working towards his next project. Perry strongly believes in laying all of his gifts at the feet of his Sheppard where he faithfully serves in ministry at his church in Camden, New Jersey. The release of his second CD in 2004 titled, 'It Ain't Over Til God Says It's Over', has undoubtedly expanded new horizons for Perry. He is no longer considered a newcomer and knows that his steps are ordered by the Lord. Once you hear him, you will never forget him. You may say that he is a person of few words until you hear his testimonies; lyrically woven into melodies. Unforgettable! He is not just another singer with a song and a rhyme. He is an anointed vessel chosen for the task. If you ask Perry Jenkins what is his goal, he'll say To minister onto the Glory of God...to help save a soul and to tell of God's goodness and his mercy! If you enjoyed Perry's first two projects, 'Keeping Strong Faith' and 'It Ain't Over Til God Says It's Over', I know you will love his new CD, 'Just Because You're You.'
