Gospel artist and founder of the On Stage Gospel video channel Charles Jerkins calls himself a “cowboy hat-wearing country guy from Newtonville, NJ” (outside of Atlantic City) who emerged from the Jerkins music dynasty, blazing a trail of his own. Raised in a family with 13 siblings, Charles’ brothers, Paul and Fred, are ministers within the Evangelical church.


While being brought up in a strict religious household, Charles admits that it was artists such as Michael Jackson who inspired him to become a singer.
