Jerry Peters


Jerry Peters, a prolific songwriter since the late 1960s, is also one of the best known piano players and vocal arrangers in the country, having contributed to scores of top-selling pop, R&B, jazz, and gospel records over the years.

His first work as a writer was with R&B vocal group, Friends Of Distinction, for whom he wrote the Top 20 smash, “Going In Circles,” as well as Top 10 follow-up, “Love Or Let Me Be Lonely.”

Continuing to write actively, he wrote “Win Or Lose” for Earth, Wind & Fire, “I Am Gold” for Philip Bailey, and gospel classics “He’s My Rooftop” for The Mighty Clouds Of Joy and “Blessed” for The Emotions.

Spirit recently placed “He’s My Rooftop” into the Tyler Perry film, ‘The Family That Preys’.
