A world traveler, poet, minister, mentor, and humanitarian are all accurate terms to describe Jerome “JSpeaks the Poet” Covington. Being born in Hawaii to a military family, JSpeaks was blessed with the opportunity to travel the world and be exposed to a plethora of diverse experiences and peoples. Little did he know that those very experiences would shape the overall purpose of his life. They served as a platform to prepare him to minister and relate to people from all over the world. Going back to his childhood in San Diego, California where he was raised, Jerome knew he was a poet at heart and possessed rhythmic genius. It wasn’t until adulthood (around 2009) when he received an epiphany from God that he should use his gift for the betterment of the world around him. He immediately began writing and reciting various poems, raps, and songs. After many years of this as well as strengthening his connection with God, Jerome released several compilations including “Why JSpeaks” (2016), A Different Dynamic EP (2016), and the singles, God is Greater (2017) and Long Way (feat. Urgency) (2019). Currently JSpeaks is finishing up his latest project entitled “YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME?” to be released at the end of 2020.
Beyond his artistic endeavors, JSpeaks the Poet also serves The Board of Directors of Speak Out Inc. as a teacher and humanitarian. Speak Out Inc. is a non-profit organization with the mission to bring awareness and education about the effects of domestic violence in Houston and surrounding communities. JSpeaks believes he is an artist set out by God to convey his message in various ways. His main goal is to broaden the minds, hearts, and souls of people to ultimately help them form an intimate and lasting relationship with God, his Lord and Savior.
