After two weeks of performances and beating out thousands to reach the American Idol stage, Jermaine Sellers was voted off Thursday, March 4. While Sellers enjoyed his stint on the top reality singing competition, that journey is by no means the end for him.
Crediting some of Gospel music’s greatest, Sellers looks forward to releasing an album and taking a crack at acting in the future.
“Of course, I want to act. I definitely want to do what the Kirk Franklins, the Mary Marys, the BeBe Winans [did]. I would say more so what BeBe and CeCe did, many years ago. They crossed over,” Sellers told EW shortly after the elimination round Thursday. “At the time, it was Video Soul with Donnie Simpson [on BET] where their videos were being played. Songs like “Heaven.” Stuff like that, the contemporary crossover music, to where you can see my songs on MTV. Just something that’s going to inspire somebody and let them know that I made it this far, you can make it too.”
