Like so many entertainers, Everett Drake's musical roots began in the church, singing in the choir and later serving as Choir Director of his beloved First Baptist Church South Inglewood. His dynamic passion for singing and directing were soon recognized by other gospel singers and he was tapped to join The Johnson Ensemble, a local singing group. They were enormously popular during the 1970s and recorded several albums. Though comfortable with all types of music, Everett's first love remains gospel music. So, it was only natural his path would eventually intersect with Nashville’s renown gospel tour de force, Dr. Bobby Jones. As a featured vocalist on Bobby Jones Gospel, which is shown internationally on Black Entertainment Television (BET), WORD Television, and IMPACT Television Networks, Everett, again, finds himself in the company of gospel music’s hottest stars, from Shirley Caesar, Rance Allen and John P. Kee to Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary and Tye Tribett. Today you can enjoy exciting original music from his debut cd project, AMEN GOES RIGHT THERE!, produced by Derrick Lee for Dherico Music. Someone once said, “The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” Everett Drake is one of those fortunate people who found his purpose early in life. And, whether touring Switzerland, Japan, Australia or right here in the United States, you can be certain that he will be realizing his purpose…bring music to the masses.
