TUNE IN THIS WEEK AS I INTERVIEW DERRICK MONK WITH HIS NEW RELEASE, "I'LL OBEY" IF YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN IN TO THE WILL OF GOD AFTER YOU HERE THIS TUNE U WILL OBEY THE CALL OF GOD.
Derrick Monk was born in Dallas, Texas, but was reared in Oakland, California. Monk, as he is affectionately called by friends, began his professional music career at 17 years of age; while singing and playing the organ at St. Paul C.O. G.I.C. as their Music Director. But the real beginning came while performing at home for his mother at the tender age of five years old.
Monk, exploring the full range of his musical abilities, Derrick’s many accomplishments in the entertainment industry don’t stop there; he has song writing credits, production credits, stage play/film credits and has appeared on and won “Showtime At The Apollo” talent search contest. Monk is what you would call a “quadruple threat”, he sings, he plays musical instruments, he writes and he acts! He definitely is a force to be reckoned with; a universal talent, singing everything from ballads to funk to R&B and now returning to his true calling, Gospel. Derrick’s music resonates with you then sets out to inspire you to be the best “you” you can be. Derrick’s music has received air-play all over the country. His latest single, “I’ll Obey” speaks directly to letting God direct your path on your way to being the best “you”.
Derrick Monk had the blessed opportunity to meet and work for the late, great James Brown.
