In 2020 during the unfortunate lock down period of our lives, Cornell and his production team of producer Kirk KC Crumpler and the addition of Dave Shul started the production of his 5th album in six years…NEXT LIFE! In his words “ I have always been intrigued and fascinated with the Egyptian (Kemet) aspect of spirituality and what a Golden Age of Art and creativity it must have been so I wanted to tap into all of that and write songs that have total meaning to my life and the life beyond our understanding! I am inspired by All of the great artists such as Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and so many others that I have listened to and learned from and God willing, I can continue that great Legacy!!
CC loves to share his talents with aspiring artists which allowed him and his team to create CDC Productions, his own production company geared toward assisting these artists to achieve their dreams while also teaching them about the time and dedication it takes to reach their goals. Cornell has been involved with many charities and non-profits over the past few years, and his vision is to continue to uplift and use his platform to help raise the bar and bring new awareness to the legacy of Real Soul Music!
