A Brooklyn native whose love of music began in the Church waited for Juneteenth to release his debut album.

Between the pandemic and renewed racial unrest, 2020 has been a tough year for Richard D’Abreu Junior, a gospel jazz artist who attended the Concord Baptist Church of Christ. 

He lost most of his income by not being able to play music in church or with his band at weddings.

But the Church and God have guided his music, and now his album, “Jazz in the Spirit,” is dropping. He joins Currents News to share what he hopes others can get out of listening to his music.
