As America starts to turn a corner on quarantine, we still have a long way to go with curving coronavirus. Major music mogul, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, has teamed up with gospel supergroup The Good News with the new song “Come Together,” hoping to help in the fight.
Darkchild produced the inspiring, upbeat, and spiritual track to provide comfort, and to raise funds supporting pandemic relief efforts worldwide. Produced by Rodney Jerkins, he also wrote “Come Together” in collaboration with the late LaShawn “Big Shiz” Daniels, Jazz Nixon, and Lecrae, who throws a snappy verse onto the track.
Performers on the song have a collective 35 plus GRAMMY wins and 125 GRAMMY nominations. The lineup of superstar and rising artists includes Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Le’Andria Johnson, Mary Mary, sibling group Shelby 5, Tim Bowman Jr., Kelontae Gavin, newcomer Jac Ross, and mother-daughter duos Karen Clark Sheard, Kierra Sheard, and Jerkins’ wife Joy Enriquez and daughter Heavenly Joy.
Money raised from “Come Together” will support two major organizations, the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, providing emergency aid to those in the music community, and Compassion International, helping children and families worldwide.
Beautifully composed and reminiscent of “We Are The World,” “Come Together” has a strong message: “If we come together hand in hand / we can make a difference if we stand / I believe, I believe we will / I believe, I believe we will.”
