New Traditional Gospel recording artist and Grand Rapids, MI native, Pastor James Cutts, has released his first national single, “Jesus Will Fix It,” featuring his childhood friend, mentor and former American professional boxer and current boxing trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. (father and trainer of five-division boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.). “Jesus Will Fix It” is produced by Derrick Lee (Bobby Jones, Everett Drake) and is impacting gospel radio now. The single is available on all digital outlets today including iTunes.
“Jesus Will Fix It” is a traditional Gospel tune that infuses different styles of music including Quartet, Praise and Worship, and Traditional R&B, and is embedded with messages of hope and encouragement to all generations and ethnicities. “I wrote this song for everyone,” states Pastor James Cutts, “But more importantly for men to let them know it’s okay to publicly show thanks and adoration to God without feeling ashamed.” “Jesus Will Fix It” also found Floyd Mayweather Sr. in a place of thanksgiving to the Father. Mayweather Sr. adds: “God said give him his time! I’ve been blessed to be rich after many years of being poor! I’m a living witness that Jesus Will Fix It!” Mayweather Sr. who is also a Grand Rapid’s native testifies that “God fixed it for me to where I was able to come back and fight after being brutally shot in close range in 1978 and staying in the hospital for 4 months.”
