Frederick J. Dukes, Jr.

Frederick J. Dukes Jr., a multi-talented composer, musician and worship leader is an innovative and exceptionally creative individual. Jubilant, energetic and spirit-filled are just a few words to describe the music ministry and spiritual walk of the anointed singer. Frederick, a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania developed a heart for the people of God at a very young age and soon after began to feel the very hand of God shape and mold his talent in many areas of music, instrumentally and vocally. It is through this blessed assurance Frederick began to perfect his God given craft, as he is called to this sacred platform, to carry out his prophetic assignment to reach the masses.

Frederick J. Dukes Jr., sings uplifting messages of Christ to the world. When he realized his worship affected the people, he knew God’s anointing was on his life. The ministry of Dukes is certainly one that’s been plucked out by the hand of God, to operate in the uplifting and deliverances of the “total man” in the world today. The songs and performances birthed from his prophetic ear….to pen and paper….and now out of the mouth of the psalmist.

The Psalmist has carved out an illustrious musical career in the Gospel Industry that has been highlighted by profound pioneers including: notable Keith and Deborah Moncrief, Trini Massie, and Nicole Smith, just to name a few. As tireless warriors for God, Dukes has sung background vocals for the renowned Kirk Franklin, Jonathan Nelson and he also worked with well-known gospel producer Kurt Carr.

God is truly blessing Frederick with the desires of his heart, by providing countless ministry opportunities. God uses him to usher the worshipers into the Holy of Holies during Sunday morning services, conferences, revivals, etc and continues to be in demand by many. In 2010, Frederick released his First CD “A Place of Peace” and in three months time this project received various notable accomplishments. As lead vocalist, he completed a tour in Italy, with the New Millennium Gospel Singers and was nominated five times for the Rhythm of Gospel Awards, winning Contemporary Male Vocalist of the year 2011. He was selected as one of the top artists for the Mark Rogers “Rhythm of Gospel Top Tunez” CD and featured in the Stellar Award Shop, in 2012. Since then Frederick has been featured on numerous radio stations and The Power of Gospel, where he was ranked #3 in Pittsburgh, PA. He has also appeared locally and nationally on television. Currently, Frederick is the newest member of the Two Time Stellar Award winning group SOV, under the leadership of Phillip Carter.

Frederick is the founder of the Predestined Production, a production company that he plans to use as a platform for sharing his gifts and talents with other artists, as well as, providing opportunities for Christian artists to minister and spread the Kingdom Sound to all nations. Anointed, called, and released by God to reach a “right now” generation, Dukes only desire is to capture the heart of man and re-ignite a fire and passion for the things of God. By popular demand, Frederick returns with a strong come back. While preparing to complete his new upcoming project “Transitions of Life”, he released his new single “Never Runs Dry” that has already received raved reviews. Frederick is excited about what the Lord is doing and is in great anticipation for more open doors to release the Kingdom Sound!

Native of Pasadena, California and graduate of Atlanta Christian College, Janeen has been entrusted with much from the Lord through His gift to her of a wonderful husband, Jeffery Lanier, Sr., and three children.  In answer to the question of how long she’s been singing, she responds,

“I honestly don’t remember not being around gospel music.  My parents believed in training up a child in the way they should go, so as soon as I was big enough to march down the church aisle with the tot’s choir at New Revelation Baptist Church, I officially started”.  She continues, “but even before my tot’s choir debut, my family would gather around the ole’ piano and sing.  I liked singing Jesus Loves Mevery much and that was actually my first solo with the tot’s choir.  I was too short to be seen over the piano that my mom was accompanying us on, but I was told that you could definitely hear me.”
