From Luther Barnes concerning Derrick Adams:
 
My heart is deeply broken from the passing of my friend Derrick Adams. He was “My Boy.” We co-wrote many songs together including the ever popular “God’s Grace.” He traveled with me for several years and played on many of my projects. Derrick was a strong dedicated Christian and an awesome musician. I will miss him greatly. As a tribute to him here are a few of the songs he co-wrote and/or collaborated with me on. Please check them out when you can:
 
Look To The Hills, God’s Grace, I’ll Obey, The Favor of God, Hallelujah Praise, Come Back To Me, It’s Your Time, Here Today Gone Tomorrow, Wherever I Go, The Praise Song, Even Then, I’m Gonna Praise Your Name, Feel The Fire, Give Love At Christmas Time, My Whole Life I Give To You and many others.
 
Thank you, Derrick Adams, for your great contribution to Gospel Music. Rest In Peace. Love You Man.
 
D.A. Johnson, President of SRT Entertainment, remembers,
 
I met Derrick for the first time in person and had the opportunity to just hang out with him in Los Angeles for the ASCAP RHYTHM & SOUL MUSIC AWARDS in June 2018 to accept Song of The Year honors for “God’s Grace.” It was a short turnaround trip so after the ceremony, we just drove around the city so Derrick could see as many of the landmarks we could cram into one night. It was a magical evening and I’m glad I had the opportunity to share that special time with him.
