Son of Jesse

Son of Jesse
Country:United States
Releases:[Last Man Standing] [The prodigal Son]
Info:Everyone who is familiar with SGR knows that the label is all about a vision and that vision being saving souls. Deriek Smith (Son of Jesse) is the vessel that God is using to head up SGR.

He was given more, than just the normal talents to rock a mic. He was given leadership qualities to handle a task such as taking a christian label and turning it into a soul saving tool. Usually when a label is created the idea is to make money first, but in SGR's case, Son of Jesse is steadfast in his belief that with reaching the masses and changing lives, the blessings from that out weigh any monetary amount received.

In Acts 13:22 it says, "And when he had removed him, (Saul) he raised up unto them David to be there king: to whom also gave their testimony and said, I have found David, the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill my will." The same can be said of this modern day Son of Jesse.

Who's father name was also Jesse. He passed away when Deriek was 15 but he has left a lasting impression that Deriek strives to impress on knowledge his father gave him.

Genuine Love
If you were to spend any amount of time with Son of Jesse, you would know that he has a geniune love of Christ and a willingness to do what is asked of him. Son of Jesse knows that it is important to have more than religion in your life, but a lasting relationship with Jesus. He is man of many scriptures but you can find him dwelling in the book of Proverbs searching it for the necessary wisdom to do what he is called to do.

Saving Souls
Son of Jesse was recently quoted saying, "God knows what he is doing. When the time is right we will be able to benefit from laboring in the Gospel finiancially if that is his will but right now that is not what it is about. It is about changing these lives through the music." Son of Jesse is taking no shorts in saving souls and we will all benefit from him doing that.

Ever since he walked away from secular rap in 1997, he has been a strong pillar of faith. He dropped his debut album called, "The Prodigal Son" in 2000. You can still catch him dropping a line or two on future SGR labelmate's CDs but his focus has changed.

New Project
On July 3rd, 2008 a new solo effort from Son of Jesse is announced called "Last Man Standing" to be released in 2009.
