Guest Artiste – Youth Session: Minister Jermaine Edwards
Born in St. Andrew, Jamaica on July 22,1980, to Bishop Rowan Edwards and Pastor Janet Edwards, Jermaine grew up surrounded by Christian teachings. His ear for harmony was apparent from an early age, so Bishop Edwards put his reluctant son in charge of music at his church. He was later ordained Minister of Music at Light House Assembly. Inspired by his praise and worship sessions, the congregation encouraged his progress as a musician.
He was very involved in his parent’s ministry but admits that for many years going to church felt more like keeping an appointment than an act of true fellowship with the Divine. As a teen, his Christian allegiance was born out of compliance rather than conviction. He hungered for intimacy with God and began a journey for a deeper relationship.
His stewardship of his church’s music ministry confirmed his musical gifts and he began to seriously explore possibilities in the music industry. His first album ISLAND WORSHIP: A Jamaican Experience, was a collection of traditional worship songs.This 2004 album was followed by ISLAND WORSHIP 2: A Closer Walk in 2006. Tracks on this second album were inspired by his quest to draw closer to God. DESTINY, his reflective sophomore album released in 2009, won five awards at the 2010 Caribbean Gospel Marlin Awards: Song of the Year for Make You Smile, Album of the Year, Reggae Vocal Performance of the Year, Engineered Recording of the Year and Producer of the Year.
Energetic or soothing, Jermaine’s style is influenced by a variety of musical genres. He enjoys spending time in the studio testing new creative concepts, and developing new sounds. He also works continuously to expand his competence in front of and behind the microphone. Today, Jermaine voices, mixes and produces all his songs under his label ISLAND WORSHIP.
Keeping it Real is a central theme in his ministry, especially when reaching out to youths. He believes that because the youth will determine the future, it is important to plant positive seeds in their hearts and point them towards salvation through Christ in order to counter Satan’s efforts to steal the abundant life that God has in store for them.
Jermaine is the first and only gospel artiste to sign as a brand ambassador for the Caribbean region’s leading telecommunications provider – Digicel. He has also had the opportunity to perform with gospel greats like Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Papa San and the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. That he is now a local and international celebrity is a reality he struggles to grasp. He is grateful for every moment but never loses sight of God’s power to give and to take away.
Jermaine is married to his high school sweetheart Tracylyn and has two daughters Halil and Tehillah.
