Jerry Lawson

A lot has happened since production of the film project, The Jerry Lawson Story – Just A Mortal Man, was announced. You may recall that Jerry Lawson was the original lead singer from 1967 to 2004 of the legendary a cappella group, The Persuasions. The producers have recently traveled to New York City, Los Angeles, and Phoenix to interview various people for the film, including other singers, a former music critic for the LA Herald Examiner, the first manager of the Persuasions, one of Jerry’s daughters and, of course, Jerry himself. The producers are now getting ready to turn the footage over to their editor and plan to premiere the film in Santa Fe in the late spring. You can still be part of this exciting project by contributing here.
