LeRae Records is thrilled to announce the signing of recording artist Marvinetta Clay, and is celebrating her debut radio single, “God Is So Good,” which released on Friday, November 11, 2022 via Exploration Distribution.
“LeRae Records is honored to be the record label home of the incredibly talented Marvinetta Clay,” says LeRae Records Founder and CEO, Rev. Wilfred Moore.
“God Is So Good” is a silky-smooth, jazz-inflected, Gospel-Urban Contemporary synthesis that effectively showcases Marvinetta’s rich, passionate vocals as they imbue the song with a soaring spiritual burst of energy.
The label will honor Marvinetta with a single release party tonight at Hamburger Mary’s Restaurant, located at 1700 East Flamingo Rd., Las Vegas, Nevada. Festivities will start at 6 p.m. PT and will feature music from Marvinetta, along with fellow LeRae Records recording artists Jack Yates and Fate Kent. Talent manager Kim Flowers of SMG | Styles Management and World Talent Management Group, LLC, will be on hand as the event’s celebrity host. Admission is free.
A preacher, teacher, singer, musician, writer, radio personality, and educator, Marvinetta is the newest signing at the Inspirational Gospel music label. Her radio single, “God is So Good,” is the debut release from her upcoming 2023 EP, Just Marvinetta, slated for release in First Quarter 2023.
As a featured soloist with vocal groups including The Las Vegas Mass Choir, Michael Stokes & Company, The Voices of Judah, God’s P.L.A.N., and David Blakely, Marvinetta has performed throughout the United States and as far away as Australia at venues including The Melbourne International Jazz Festival, The House of Blues, and the Super Bowl.
“I’m so excited at what God is doing with my music ministry,” says Marvinetta. “I can’t wait to see what doors He will open next!”
In addition to her music ministry, Marvinetta, who holds a Doctor of Theology degree, serves as President of the Bread of Life Christian University Theology Seminary in Las Vegas, where she is an instructor in the Master’s Degree program. She is the Associate Pastor at God’s House International Ministries, where she is also the worship leader of the Praise and Worship ministry. In addition, she is a radio personality at Anointed Radio and hosts the Music of the Heart segment on KCEP 88.1 every 1st Sunday. Marvinetta is also the CEO of Clay Enterprises, LLC. She is reaching beyond the stars and will continue her preaching, teaching, and musical journey because she knows that God is the master planner of her life and she is very grateful for all opportunities and experiences encountered.
Marvinetta’s debut single, “God Is So Good,” was co-written by Jack Yates and Fate Kent, who are also signed with LeRae Records.
Jack Yates, who released his first project with the label in 2010, rose to prominence as one of the lead vocalists in the Stellar Award-nominated James Grear & Company, and has worked with renowned production duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, performing on the Prince of Egypt and Emperor’s New Groove soundtracks. Yates is currently the Minister of Music for the 10,000 member Victory Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada, the largest African American Church in Southern Nevada.
Fate Kent, whose voice has been compared to such Motown greats as Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, and Smokey Robinson, but with a sound that is uniquely his own, has a solo project slated for release on LeRea Records in First Quarter 2023. Kent currently serves as one of the Associate Pastors of the Abundant Peace United Church of Christ, Las Vegas and is esteemed as a speaker and life-coach.
“LeRae Records is blessed to work alongside of these amazing singer/songwriters,” says Rev. Moore. “We believe they are each uniquely qualified to reach the world with the message of God’s love.”
