Canton Jones describes the inspiration behind his new song “Fill Me Up Again” in this touching video interview.
In the clip, CaJo explains the pain and hurt he experienced when his father, Pastor Clearance Jones, died in May of 2010. His father, who was an artist and signed to Canton’s Record label, was a huge influence on his life.
“I’ve never told the story without crying,” Canton says about his father. “He was the best man I ever met. He was a man that was about his business. He was a pastor. He was a singer. He was a dad. He was there for every basketball game. He came to every football game. He was there for every engagement. Not only for me, but for all my siblings.”
Clearance Jones was featured on Canton’s song “Fix It” from Canton Jones’ Love Jones album as well as “Jesus is the Light” from Kingdom Business 2.
We were blessed to have Canton and his father on Episode 130 of the Wade-O Radio Show shortly before Clearance Jones’ passing.
