On January 5th, 2016, Grammy nominated songwriter and singer Tracy Randall, as he battles stage 4 cancer, will release, “Be Free,” the first single off of his third studio album, “No Judgment,” to impact radio. But, the Lavish Records recording artist Tracy Randall isn’t supposed to be here. In 2006, he was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, underwent aggressive rounds of chemo and radiation therapy, and his doctors gave up.

In February 2007 doctors told him to go home and prepare to die; he had between three to six months to live. “However, the 6 months turned to 6 years,” he recalls. He left the office that cold, rainy afternoon and started walking. “I began to pray and talk to God, not about me, but about my family and their survival because I’m the breadwinner.” As he walked past the 42nd Street subway, where he usually caught the train, he kept walking, talking. “By the time I got to 96th Street this voice said, ‘You’re going to be okay.’” His testimony on YouTube has over 300,000 views. Unfortunately, after being in remission for almost seven years, the cancer came back with a vengeance, trying to stop his praise and love for Christ.
