Born Jerome Benjamin Alexander Burgess
Born the son of a couple from Nassau, Bahamas. James and Barbara Burgess gave Jerome Robinson (then named Jerome Benjamin Alexander Burgess) up for adoption.
At the age of two. He was taken in by a wonderful woman named Ruby Robinson. He had been told all of his life that his natural family had passed away.
Twenty-eight years later, Jerome received a phone call from a man who said he was his natural father. Jerome learned of a family he had never seen and of a father that wished to share his love ...
Jerome said, "After I wiped the tears from my eyes there was nothing left for me to say." Jerome met his father. It was very emotional. Unfortunately, two years after meeting, Jerome's father passed away.
This led to the recording of the song "I Never Sang for My Father," (Jerome was known and performing at this time under the name of Alexander Love. In 1979 Jerome recorded a CD titled "Pieces of Love".

The Reason I Perform
April 6, 2010
My favorite thing in life is performing. The reason I love it so much is that it touches people. I am the happiest when I have touched someone's heart through a song. People come up to me after I perform and say things such as, " That was the song played at our wedding or when we met." By the grace of the good Lord, I am doing what I love to do. I give God thanks for the gift of my voice, so I can bring happiness into other people's lives

After performing with Jerome for a number of years in Phoenix I had learned what a true gift it is to be able to so deeply affect the lives of those who are only out for a casual night and leave with lasting memories. BTW Kudos to the webmaster!
