MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A former contestant on BET's "Sunday Best" celebrated the release of his first single Saturday evening.
Jamal Roberts, of Meridian, celebrated with members of 5th Street Baptist Church and other church groups. It was all for the release of his first single titled "He's Preparing Me". Roberts was in the top 20 of season nine's "Sunday Best" but was eliminated. He tells us what his music means to him.
"It has always been a dream of mine. Singing is my passion. I just think I have an opportunity in the doors He's opened for me in my life. I've been singing since I was two so singing is really all I know; it's just my life. I plan on using my singing as a career, taking it further, traveling, mostly singing," Roberts says.
Jamal Roberts believes your destiny is not determined by where you come from but how you prepare yourself to succeed.
