ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jessy Dixon And The Gaither Homecoming Friends
One of the leading names in gospel music Jessy Dixon has written some of the most recognizable songs in the genre. Born in San Antonio, TX, Dixon showed a talent for songwriting at a young age, eventually moving out to Chicago as a teenager to try and make a name for himself. He was soon discovered by singer James Cleveland, who would go on to record several of his compositions. Word spread about his talents, and soon he was singing live to much acclaim. He began touring with Paul Simon as a member of his band and they continued to collaborate after the tour on the next two Simon albums. In his own career, Dixon recorded his debut single "It's All Right Now" with producer Andrae Crouch. It became a modest success, and the next few singles built on that success until he was soon one of the premiere names in gospel at the time. Later Dixon recorded his biggest single, "I Am Redeemed," an enormous success in the gospel world that stayed on the Christian charts for almost five years. He continued his solo career as well as writing songs for Amy Grant, Natalie Cole, Cher, and Diana Ross. His participation in Bill and Gloria Gaither's videos and tours have also led to many collaborations with the couple. He has continued to work in the gospel industry steadily through today, releasing albums and touring hundreds of days a year.

This albumn is one of Jessy Dixon's favorite CD's. It includes the award winning songs "Heavenly News," and "Stood On The Banks of Jordan."

And a bonous to this CD is that the World Famous "I Am Redeemed" is recorded on this CD!!!

Jessy Dixon delivers some of the best traditional gospel we have ever, EVER heard come through these warehouse doors. In the classic southern style, complete with hand-clapping, foot-stomping energy and vitality, "Heavenly News" captures an amazing, intoxicating, worshipping spirit, resulting in blood-boiling, hair-raising songs that renew, inspire, energize and heal. If you're thinking about adding to your gospel collection, there is no better choice than this one.

PAUL DAVIS (JOURNALIST/BROADCASTER)

EXCELLANT
Since the Gaither videos, the public has it seems an insatiable desire to hear more-and-more Jessy Dixon gospel-soul repertoire. With looks and the occasional vocal 'whoop', he vocally reminds one of the legendary Little Richard ('Rip It Up', 'Tutti Fruiti' and 'Long Tall Sally'). But that's where the similarity ceases! Jessy's Southern Gospel music is clean-cut, wholesome and full of Christian values. Here’s some of his most requested Dixon songs with vivid imagery. Growing up in sunny San Antonio, Texas, Jessy admits that he only initially attended his local church for the enjoyment of its joyous music! His undeveloped faith at that time did not match the God-given gift of his exceptionally good voice. Later he personally surrendered to Christ’s claims on his life. Now he enthusiastically spreads the Good News via his singing.

Great CD, I Am Redeemed is so inspirational.
I purchased it for my mom as a gift who loves the song I Am Redeemed. We have both enjoyed the other songs as well. This is my first time listening to Jesse Dixon. I am looking forward to hearing more of his songs.
