Lester ChambersPEOPLE GET READY!! GOSPEL ROCK ICON LESTER CHAMBERS IS COMIN'! THE MESSENGER OF PEACE IS BRINGING A DESPERATELY-NEEDED MESSAGE OF LOVE AND FORGIVENESS IN HIS NEW ALBUM, TENTATIVELY TITLED “Follow Your Heart.”

“I WANT THE MESSAGE TO BE WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. LOVE, PEACE AND HAPPINESS WAS MEANT FOR ALL!!,” DECLARES CHAMBERS WHO'S MADE CURTIS MAYFIELD'S CLASSIC HIT, “PEOPLE GET READY” HIS SIGNATURE SONG IN THE 53 YEARS HE'S BEEN REVOLUTIONIZING GOSPEL ROCK.

IN ADDITION TO THE UPCOMING ALBUM, THE FORMER CO-FOUNDER/LEAD SINGER OF THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS, IS WRITING HIS MEMOIRS. FROM BEING MET BY THE BEATLES WHEN THEY FIRST WENT TO LONDON – “THEY WERE OUR WELCOMING COMMITTEE. THEY HAD A NIGHTCLUB AND BEAUTIFUL RECORDING STUDIO. THEY REALLY TREATED US NICE OVER THERE” – TO PLAYING AND HANGING OUT WITH SUCH PEERS AS BOB DYLAN, JIMI HENDRIX, JANIS JOPLIN, THE GRATEFUL DEAD AND THE JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, CHAMBERS HAS ENDLESS TALES FROM ONE OF THE RICHEST PERIODS IN AMERICA'S HISTORY THAT NOT ONLY ENTERTAIN, BUT ENLIGHTEN.

CHAMBERS – WHO WAS INDUCTED INTO THE WEST COAST BLUES HALL OF FAME IN 2011 AND THE R&B HALL OF FAME IN 2012 – ALSO HAS A PILOT FOR A MUSIC/COOKING SHOW IN THE WORKS CALLED 'SOUL FOODS, RHYTHM & BLUES,” IN WHICH HE WILL BE WHIPPING UP FOOD AND MUSIC FOR THE SOUL WITH LONG-TIME PALS LIKE TAJ MAHAL AND ALICE COOPER.

THIS MISSISSIPPI TRANSPLANT HAS BECOME A FAVORED SON OF THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA AND IN 2015 BERKELEY MAYOR TOM BATES PROCLAIMED APRIL 7 TO BE LESTER CHAMBERS DAY IN BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA. CHAMBERS WAS RECENTLY HONORED TO BE CHOSEN BY MUSIC CITY SAN FRANCISCO TO BE THE PREMIERE ARTIST FEATURED IN ITS MUSIC CITY SYMPOSIUM SERIES.

WHILE JUST A TEEN, CHAMBERS ESCAPED A SHARECROPPER'S LIFE IN MISSISSIPPI UNDER THREAT OF DEATH WITH HIS BROTHERS TO PURSUE MUSIC IN LOS ANGELES. HE KNOWS FIRST HAND HOW MUSIC NOT ONLY BECOMES THE SOUNDTRACK OF A GENERATION, IT CAN BE A CATALYST FOR CHANGE. THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS' CLASSIC 60S' HIT, “TIME HAS COME TODAY” BECAME AN ANTHEM FOR THE DISENFRANCHISED AND DISILLUSIONED YOUTH OF AMERICA AND HAS BEEN FEATURED IN OVER 150 FILMS, TV SHOWS AND COMMERCIALS. THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS MUSIC, ALONG WITH SUCH PEERS AS LENNON, HENDRIX, JOPLIN AND BOB DYLAN, CAME TO DEFINE A TIME IN AMERICA'S HISTORY THAT SAW REVOLUTIONS ON EVERY FRONT FROM WOMEN'S RIGHTS TO CIVIL RIGHTS AND THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT.

NOW, WITH RACIAL TURMOIL AT VOLATILE LEVELS IN AMERICA, THE MESSENGER OF PEACE IS NEEDED MORE THAN EVER BEFORE!

“I FEEL LIKE IT'S MY TIME NOW,” SAYS CHAMBERS WHO IS A WALKING MIRACLE. THE SURVIVOR OF THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CANCER HAS A LESSON FOR US ALL ON GETTING THROUGH THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT. “I'M CLEAR FOR 21 YEARS NOW. YOU CAN'T KEEP ME DOWN. GOD WANTS ME UP!!”

THE WINNER OF THE 2013 IMAGINATION HEALS BUTTERFLY AWARD (FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN CHILDREN'S TRANSFORMATIONAL ENTERTAINMENT FOR HIS WORK ON THE MULTI-AWARD WINNING “PACHA'S PAJAMAS” CD), ADDS, “I LOVE PEOPLE AND FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE I'M DEDICATED TO BEING THE BEST I CAN BE AT EVERYTHING. MY GREATEST PERFORMANCE IS STILL YET TO COME!! IF NEED BE, I WOULD SING 'PEOPLE GET READY' FOR 53 MORE YEARS!!”
