November 08, 2005

th_reed.jpgMusic business alumnus and Catawba Young Artist in Residence Dennis Reed took home first place (out of some 1300 entries) in the 2006 BMI John Lennon Scholarship contest. He has gone onto perform and record with a growing list of gospel industry luminaries, including LaShun Pace, Donald Lawrence, The Murills, Tamela Mann, John P. Kee, Smokie Norful, Ted and Sheri, Lucinda Moore, Patrick Love, Christopher Brinson, Christopher Gray, Ricky Dillard and Shirley Caesar.

Dennis and his gospel ensemble, GAP, have even recorded with Queen Latifah and Mavis Staples.

"Awesome God" has become something of Dennis' signature song and was even covered by gospel great Ricky Dillard on his 7th Episode CD. To hear more of Derek's music, visit his website.
