Free to Co-host New Bobby Jones Gospel Series

On-air personality Free, former host of BET's 106 & Park, will co-host the new Gospel Music Channel television network original series Bobby Jones Next Generation alongside the man who helped revolutionize gospel music as a creator, producer, director and performer, Dr. Bobby Jones, it was announced today. The series will begin shooting in Atlanta next week

Dr. Jones and Free will share hosting duties of Bobby Jones Next Generation, an hour-long emerging artist showcase of musical performances and interviews with up-and-coming "undiscovered" performers. Gospel Music Channel, Atlanta-based Kingdom Come Productions and Dr. Jones will produce the new series together. Bobby Jones Next Generation will be seen Sunday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT with the series premiere set for Sunday, May 4.

"Free is the ideal choice to share the hosting role on our new GMC series," said Dr. Jones. "She is a seasoned television personality, brings a young demographic appeal, knows the new artist world well and is an emerging artist herself. She and I will compliment each other well and viewers will enjoy our pairing"

It will be a busy stretch for Free who, between co-hosting duties on Bobby Jones Next Generation, will release her first album later this spring. The album will be produced by award-winning producers Missy Elliott, Rockwilder, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Pharrell Williams, Chucky Thompson, Antwan "Amadeus" Thompson, Kanye West, Clark Kent, Bryan Michael Cox, Just Blaze, Karma Productions, Bink!, Soul Diggaz and Salaam Remi. The album will be a tribute to all her fans.
