7.26_derrick_pearson.jpg

Sunday, July 26

Tonight on Soulsations, hear brand new inspirational gospel music from award winning producer/songwriter Derrick “Doc” Pearson. He has composed, recorded and produced chart-topping songs for such R&B artists as The O’Jays and The Whispers.  

As a bass guitarist Doc Pearson recorded with top tier musicians such as drummers Freddie White (Earth Wind & Fire) and Rick Wellman (Miles Davis, Chuck Brown), keyboardist Kevin Bond (Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams) and guitarist Mike Scott (Prince, Justin Timberlake). Known as a real musical innovator, Derrick Pearson has gained the nickname “Doc” which sticks with him even today.  He now uses it as an acronym for Disciple Of Christ.
