Jerry Mannery enjoyed writing poems and was encouraged by a college professor to set his words to music. When one of his songs was performed by the legacy choir director, Frank Williams, Jerry felt a calling to write gospel music. In 1985, Jerry oversaw the Gospel Division at Malaco Records and began leading the Mississippi Mass Choir, who often recorded songs he had written. Jerry also became a minister in the Jackson area, combining music with his messages on Sunday morning.
