Jai Reed Music (2023)
By Robert M. Marovich
On his latest single, “My Testimony,” New Orleans singer-songwriter Jai Reed witnesses to his listeners. He made it through by God’s grace, he sings, and so will you.
What sells the song are the interweaving vocal lines between Pastor Reed and his background singers, the head-bobbing rhythm, and its simple and singular message of encouragement. Reed’s experience singing soul music and R&B as well as gospel is evident on this track, as is his penchant for crafting a memorable melody.
