LAMONT SANDERS BIOGRAPHY
R&B singer turned gospel recording artist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist
Lamont Sanders expresses his gratitude to God on his latest Billboard Gospel
Airplay Top 5 charting radio single “He Kept Me.”
Lifted from his February 2020 EP HE’S A KEEPER (Fred Jerkins Music/Darkchild
Gospel/Bear Tag Entertainment), “He Kept Me” debuted on the official Billboard
top 30 radio chart in December 2021. In July 2022, the song, which spent 28
weeks on the chart peaked at No. 4 and continues to gain traction weekly.
“He Kept Me” along with 4 tracks from his EP features stellar production and
songs written by Fred “Uncle Freddy” Jerkins, Adam Blackstone, Dana Sorey,
Johnnie “Smurff” Smith, and Gerald and Tammi Haddon.
Lauded by music critic Bob Marovich (journalofgospelmusic.com) he states, on
“He Kept Me” Lamont Sanders expresses his gratitude to God who never left him
despite his doubts, mistakes, and lack of focus on the Word. Sanders sings with a
confidence and muscularity equaled only by the insistent thumping of a drum
that opens the song and ultimately folds itself within the rhythm section.”
Lamont Sanders initially launched into the music industry as an R&B artist when
he landed a record deal with Interscope Records. He eventually answered the
call of God and ministry and returned to his gospel roots by recording and
releasing music full-time.
The singer-songwriter is also CEO of Bear Tag Entertainment and is in a
partnership deal with Darkchild Gospel, an Atlanta-based record label run by
GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter and producer Fred Jerkins who in his storied
career has written and/or produced for Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and
