I Got Your Back

A Father and Son Keep It Real About Love, Fatherhood, Family, and Friendship

Publisher: Broadway Books
The final collaboration from Eddie and Gerald Levert: an intimate glimpse into their lives, their passions, and their musical legacy. But most important, I Got Your Back gets inside the special and rare father-son bond that these two R&B legends shared. Eddie and Gerald put their hearts and souls on the line and talk about their failures, concerns, fears, and triumphs as father and son. With a powerful message of reconciliation for broken families, Eddie and Gerald explore the themes of fatherhood, male bonding and male-female relationships. The book includes moving tributes from Eddie, Patti LaBelle, Steve Harvey and others, as well as treasured family photographs.

I Got Your Back is their powerful and poignant gift to us—a life-enhancing message we so badly need in these difficult days!” —Dr. Cornel West, New York Times bestselling author of Democracy Matters

“When I think of Gerald and Eddie together, I had never seen anything like that in my whole life—seeing a father and son work together, seeing a son look up to his dad, and the type of success they had. The love they shared for each other, the way they talked to each other, the way they got along, and the music they made over the years is truly mind blowing.” —Reverend Run, hip-hop icon, pastor, author of Words of Wisdom, and star of MTV’s Run’s House
