This soul-stirring book archives the life journey of Jerry Cummings, the legendary lead tenor for the world-famous group Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and his rise with Teddy Pendergrass to the pinnacle of the music world. This gripping story with the milieu of the explosive 1950s through the 1970s contrasts the dual life of one man in search of the gold of stardom and another part of him in search of the glory of triumph in Christ. The historical impact of the Sound of Philadelphia comes to life through this man who was involved with women, drugs, many betrayals, abandonment, broken promises, and attempts to end his life. After leaving the side of Minister Louis Farrakhan in the Nation of Islam, Jerry reached the turning point in his life as he searched for God, realizing that the success of gold/platinum albums and relationships was only a shadow of what he was really searching for.
