Ya’ll remember Jesse Campbell? He had one of my favorite songs back in the early 90’s…. “When You Cry, I Cry,” and he was featured on TD Jakes Sacred Love Songs CD, well he was on the TD Jakes Show yesterday and he song a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace during the shows Thanksgiving special.
Jesse was born in Chicago, IL and raised in nearby Maywood, IL, His voice emerged at the age of sixteen when he began leading songs with the church choir where his father, W.J. Campbell was Pastor. Immediately recognized as a unique talent, Jesse was a featured soloist on the early recordings of the Winans and Timothy Wright.
Jesse broke out of his gospel roots in 1994, signing a recording contract with Underworld/Capitol Records. Since then he has competed on The Voice, and recorded at least 2 gospel albums.
Check him out on the TD Jakes Show:
