The Lavish Records recording artist Tracy Randall, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (A.L.L.) in 2006 and underwent aggressive rounds of chemo and radiation therapy, his doctors gave up. Given only 6 months to live, he recalls “I began to pray and talk to God not about me but about my family and their survival because I’m the breadwinner,” as he walked past the 42nd Street subway where he usually caught the train and kept walking, talking. “By the time I got to 96th Street this voice said, “You’re going to be okay.” His testimony on YouTube has over 390,000 views. Unfortunately after being in remission for almost seven years, the cancer came back, vigorously, trying to stop his praise and love for Christ. Randall has released independently several Billboards © chart-topping albums: “Sinners Have Souls Too” (2007), “Troubled Times” (2012) and his current album is entitled “No Judgment” on March 25th, 2016.
Randall, the Lake Charles, Louisiana native grew up on a musical diet of Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder. After completing his undergraduate degree from LeMoyne-Owen College in Memphis and went on to obtain both his Ph.D. in International Business and Juris Doctorate from UCLA, Randall was signed to the Isley Brothers’ T-Neck/Island Records label. After Universal/Polygram took over the company in 1999, he left to start Lavish Records, LLC. He released his first gospel CD “Sinners Have Souls Too” in 2007 and has done a lot of behind the scenes work in the music industry. Randall co-wrote four songs on Shaggy’s Grammy® nominated “Summer in Kingston” CD that reached #1 on Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums chart in 2012.
