The Pulse of Entertainment: RCA Inspiration’s Melvin Crispell, III Releases ‘I’ve Got a Testimony
By Eunice Moseley
“I had my first performance at three,’ said Melvin Crispell III, one of RCA Inspiration’s newest Gospel recording artists. Melvin has an amazing voice which garnered him a big win at the ninth season of the BET “Sunday Best” talent competition. That win included $50,000 and a recording contract at RCA Inspiration/Sony (Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Hezekiah Walker). In 2019 RCA Inspiration released a debut EP ‘Prologue III.’ In the Fall of 2020 RCA Inspiration released his debut album “I’ve Got a Testimony,” which was led by the single “Wonderful is Your Name.”
“It was so amazing…It was so many emotions,” Melvin said of his experiences performing on “Sunday Best.” “Exhilarating, exciting, nerve-wracking times…being a worship person I wanted to make sure my heart was in the right place.”
His voice is all heart so I have no doubt his heart was in the right place on the “Sunday Best” competition aired on BET. At 22 years-old Melvin Crispell, III honors his father on his debut album, the late Melvin Crispell, Jr., with the “Wonderful is Your Name” single, produced by Jevon Hill, because his father wrote it. Crispell, Jr. wrote for and was a featured musician on projects for Hezekiah Walker and Juanita Bynum. “I’ve Got a Testimony” offers 10 selections.
