Fontana/TLR Entertainment Releases The Much Anticipated Album
April 1st 2008, NY, NY – Jai Reed’s much anticipated album “Anointed For Purpose” is now in stores.

Currently you can see Jai Reed performing on the Bobby Jone’s Gospel Hour, the New Orleans Jazz Festival and you can find the video for his single “Anointed Me” playing on video show nationally.
The New Orleans’s native is referred to by many as “The Messenger” and has one of the most profound voices of this time. His voice transcends ethnicity and class, with a style and sincerity in delivery that cuts across geographic boundaries.
Al Hobbs, Chairman of the Gospel Announcer’s Guild / Executive Director of the Gospel Music Workshop Of America has this to say about Jai Reed, "We live in a season when the next generations of singers are emerging all across the gospel music landscape. Most are good, many are excellent and if you keep listening, every now and then one comes along that is not just a singer but an artist. Today that artist is Jai Reed”. He goes on to say, “One listen to his debut album and you'll be in awe of his amazing vocal capabilities; his fresh styling, his musical arrangements but, most of all you'll experience the in dwelling of the holy spirit as each song reveals the depth of his love for the king of kings. Jai Reed sings and the kingdom is blessed!"
