The label’s roster includes artists Fred Hammond and Tasha.
Entertainment executive Jovan Dawkins is announcing the launch of inspirational label Legacy Music Group. Heading the label’s A&R division as president is Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter and Dawkins’ cousin Eric Dawkins. The initial roster for Los Angeles-based Legacy includes Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award-winning artist Fred Hammond, Tasha and Dawkins & Dawkins.
Referencing his ministerial work as well, Jovan Dawkins stated, "My goal was to launch something that’s part of my traditional background from a musical perspective. I also hope to provide a comfortable space to produce and approach music in a different way that ideally inspires others and honors my family’s legacy."
That legacy includes Dawkins & Dawkins, the gospel and Christian R&B duo comprised of Eric and his brother Anson. The pair is best known for charting two hit albums on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart, From Now On (No. 4) and Focus (No. 10) plus songs such as "Everybody Needs Somebody," "Need to Know" and "Praisin’ on My Mind."
