"Love You I"

The title of Elder Emmitt Nevels’ song sounds like Yoda from Star Wars professing his devotion, but it actually works in the context and arrangement of the lyrics. “Love You I” is a simple melodic love song to the Savior. It’s fresh, modern, crisp and electric, a blend of Christian pop and contemporary gospel. Backed by swirling breathy background vocalists and an acoustic pulsing beat, Emmitt’s sugar-sweet falsetto sells the performance.

"Gospel Singer's Debut Draws Praise"

Gospel singer Emmitt Nevels Jr., a Youngstown native, has released his debut CD, “Love You I.”

Nevels is an accomplished songwriter who has penned many songs for his famous siblings, the Nevels Sisters gospel quartet.

His new album has caught the ear of gospel-radio programmers in several markets, who have added Nevels’ music to their rotation.

The up-tempo praise single “I Wanna Bless You” is getting airplay in Atlanta, Detroit, St. Louis, Buffalo and Jacksonville, Fla. The jazz-styled tracks “Eternity” and “It’s A Good Day” may soon find their way on the playlists of smooth inspirational jazz shows.

Bob Marovich of WLUW in Chicago, a gospel music historian, describes “Love You I” (7-Places Global Gospel) as “a simple melodic love song to the Savior. It’s fresh, modern, crisp and electric, a blend of Christian pop and contemporary gospel.”

“I just write from my heart,” said Nevels who penned every song on his freshman album except “You Are Great” (Ishmael Hale).

Nevels’ songwriting credits also include “Company,” “Alright” and the Billboard Top 30 single “Clap Your Hands,” all of which have been recorded by the Nevels Sisters.

Nevels shares executive producing credits for “Love You I” with Dr. Clyde Maxwell. Nevels and Maxwell are co-owners of 7-Places record label.

Nevels lives in Canfield with his wife, Kacie, and their two daughters. He and his wife are the owners of Coney Island hot dog shop at 3640 Belmont Ave. in Liberty.

Nevels performed in August at the DeYor Performing Arts Centre in Youngstown, but said no additional shows are scheduled in the area.

“I probably will not be doing anything here until next year, as far as singing,” said Nevels. “I am currently promoting the CD in different states and cities.”

Nevels previously sang lead for local group G-Clef. In the ’90s, he was asked to join the Grammy-award-winning gospel group Commissioned, when Fred Hammond left the band.

“When I was approached by Mitchell Jones of Commissioned, I was floored at this great opportunity,” said Nevels. “I was in school and working heavily with my church, so I did not take the offer.”

“Love You I” is available at Best Buy stores and online at 7-places.com and bestbuy.com.

Emmitt Nevels, Jr. has a fresh, original style of contemporary inspirational music that invokes passionate praise and a distinct call to worship. It’s his smooth, clear delivery, tinged with a hint of Jazz that attracted Mitchell Jones of the Grammy award winning group Commissioned. Jones approached Nevels about joining Commissioned shortly after Fred Hammond exited the group in the 1990s. However, due to school and church obligations, Nevels declined the offer. But now, several years later, he has emerged with extraordinary talent and inspiring songs that penetrate the soul.

His debut album, “Love You I” is a beautiful blend of contemporary gospel, worship melodies and Jazz-styled tracks that is easy on the ears and poised for radio. His up-tempo praise single “I Wanna Bless You” is already gaining national airplay in radio markets such as Jacksonville, FL, Nashville, TN, St. Louis, MO, Buffalo, NY, New Orleans, LA and Atlanta, GA. And, Jazz-styled tracks “Everything” and “It’s A Good Day” may soon find their way on the play lists of Smooth Jazz inspirational shows.

Nevels penned essentially every song on his freshman album except "You Are Great" (Ishmael Hale). An accomplished songwriter, Nevels has written popular songs like “Company,” “Alright” and the Billboard Top 30 single “Clap Your Hands” for his siblings, gospel singing sensations the Nevels Sisters.

Nevels, a Youngstown, Ohio native, previously sang lead for a local group G-Clef but remains active at his church Nevels Temple Church of God in Christ pastored by his father Elder Emmitt Nevels, Sr.

Finally, his dream of ministering to the masses is coming to fruition as more and more radio stations—terrestrial and Internet—add his songs to their music rotation and a wide, cross-section of gospel music lovers experience the musical finesse that is uniquely Emmitt Nevels, Jr.
