Derrick Wright, son of the late Rev. Timothy Right, releases debut album

After losing his mother and father Derrick Wright was faced with unbelievable grief. Being the son of the late Rev. Timothy Wright afforded him many opportunities in life, but those opportunities couldn’t take him through what he was experiencing. He was forced to rely on his faith.

His faith allowed him to overcome one of the most challenging times in his life and release his self-titled debut album “Derrick Wright and Driven“. This album is a collection of gospel songs that includes a couple of remakes.┬áHe revamps some of his father’s popular songs. “Master Can You Use Me” is given a contemporary twist and it features the vocals of gospel powerhouse singer Melonie Daniels. Also, “You Are My Everything”, another Rev. Timothy Wright classic, is covered. Cheryl “Pepsi” Riley appears as a guest vocalist on “It Will Be Alright”. Additional tracks include “More of You” featuring Jeff Roberson and “Fly Away” featuring Bettina Pennon.

Most people probably don’t know this, but Derrick Wright has an extensive background in music. He is currently the co-music director and drummer for Grammy award winning artist Adele and drummer for Grammy award winning artist Toni Braxton.

It will be interesting to see how this album is received. I think that anyone who loved Rev. Timothy Wright’s music will find Derrick Wright and Driven very appealing.
