In his exclusive interview with People.com, Alvin added, “Love is the most powerful thing. If we can agree on love and happiness, that’s a starting point that can lead to unity.”
“The Lightness Of Love” is the title track off Alvin’s highly-lauded album The Lightness Of Love (HILL Entertainment) featured by American Songwriter, Urban Music Scene and USA Today. The Lightness Of Love reaffirms the importance of connection, love, and togetherness; and is the follow up to Alvin’s previously released album The Awakening, a reflection of the social unrest and injustice in the country. The Inspirational Soul artist and award-winning songwriter uses his gifts and talents to positively influence and inspire society and has been lauded as an artist with the ability to “…harness the cry for change…” (Gospel Music Fever) and one that has “managed to capture the spirit of today’s climate with a few simple words” (WTUG-FM Tuscaloosa, AL). Earlier this year, he performed his poignant and emotive, self-penned song “It Starts In The Heart” as the opening to the 56th annual Selma Bridge Crossing, one of the largest annual Civil Rights Commemoration events in the world.
Alvin continues to share the message of love, healing, and hope, and most recently appeared on FOX Soul “The Book Of Sean,” a Nationally-syndicated streaming channel dedicated to African American viewers.

Lowell Pye)” the first #1 song to hit the top of the Billboard Gospel National Airplay charts in 2021, produced by Fred Jerkins III. The Alabama-born-and-raised preacher’s son’s first foray into music was through his musical experiences at Church and his love for bass guitar. Since then, the triple threat singer/songwriter and producer has built an undeniable storied career, amassing multiple awards including a Grammy nomination, a Soul Train, Dove and a Stellar Award. His impressive independent rise as an artist and his career has ushered him to the forefront of Soul and R&B as a professional bassist and producer, arranger and songwriter for Joe, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia Barrino, Ruben Studdard, Jordan Knight, Deitrick Haddon and more.
