Melvin Crispell III’s musical calling is rooted in a rich gospel legacy, marked by his late parents, renowned gospel composer Melvin Crispell Jr. and singer Tunesha Crispell, and Melvin’s victory winning the 2019 BET “Sunday Best” singing competition. His debut album release, I’ve Got a Testimony, garnered GRAMMY, Stellar and Dove Award nominations, and featured his #1 hit single “Wonderful Is Your Name.”  In 2023, Melvin released his second album, No Failure, earning him a second GRAMMY nomination in the Best Gospel Performance/Song category for his single “God Is” and a Dove Award nomination for “Alright.”

This summer, Melvin is set to release his third full-length project: an EP featuring covers of gospel classics. The EP will be a captivating collection of a range of gospel favorites, with Crispell honoring his artistic influences and contemporaries with his newly-recorded adaptations.

In this TCB exclusive, Melvin explains how he went about selecting the artists he wanted to pay tribute to on his new covers project. He reflects on how he wove his theatrical sound into the covers. Melvin celebrates this year’s GRAMMY and Stellar Award nominations and teases what is coming up next for him. Finally, Melvin shares his prayer for those who hear his music.
