Retired NBA Superstar, Terry Cummings has made a smooth transition from the NBA to the recording studio. The former NBA star formed the Cummings Entertainment Group several years ago to manage his record, film, internet, and multimedia ventures. Terry, a self-taught musician, has recently found a home for his signature style of smooth R&B fused with Gospel and Urban influences when the Cummings Entertainment Group signed an exclusive distribution agreement with RNLG Distribution, LLC. RNLG is a label group distributed by Koch Entertainment, the number one ranked independent distributor in North America several years running. Terry Cumming's first RNLG/Koch release, T.C. Finally, is slated for an April 10, 2007 release date. "Cummings is a gifted self-taught musician," says label president, Rob Nonies, "He possesses something that's long missing in today's pre-packaged music scene-passion."
Cummings is as dedicated in the studio as he was on the court; trading in his sneakers for piano keys and platinum plaques. His new album T.C. Finally, is a worthy effort very much in the tradition of some of his favorite vocalists such as Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Al Green, and Gerald Levert. The album is a sublime song cycle performed by a man who has lived a dream and experienced the soul, gospel and jazz essence...it is everything that Terry Cummings is.
In addition to basketball and musical skills, Cummings is a multimedia all-star. He has produced, written, and directed several television commercials, acted in a Spike Lee Joint film, and has toured the world as a motivational speaker. Although retired from the NBA, Terry Cummings shows no sign of slowing down; the young-at-heart philanthropist and recording artist will perform his music on the world stage this year with the help and support of RNLG.
