From the Motor City comes the heavenly Sounds of Imani. The husband-and-wife duo Drs. Gerald & Carol Ervin have brought a fresh sound to their music. Imani's mix of jazz, Christian, and R&B music has earned them a strong fan following and gospel music awards. The word "Imani" means" faith. It is the foundation of the music the band makes and the message they spread.
Imani has been bringing faith and music to Detroit and abroad since 1996. The music has helped uplift others. From their first mini-cd released in 1996, "Praises," to their upcoming EP release of "Holy is Thy Name" (2022), Imani ... is spreading their sound to those who need love and hope. When asked about what makes Imani's music unique, they responded: "Our music is unique because we are inspired to write lyrics for songs that touch the heart and soul of people. The songs we write come from our own heartfelt personal experiences, and we believe that factor makes our music reachable, receivable, and believable."
Imani continues to make music that is both creative and original and plans to grow its brand to generate multiple revenue streams. Their goal is to provide musical opportunities for indie artists to share their music to the nations through Imani's independently owned and licensed Right Now Praizz Radio and TV Network.
