November - 2009 - Information provided by Monica Hernandez, daughter of Manny Hernandez, one of the original singers of The Five Jades.

Manny Hernandez was in the original group and original record shown in the pictures I enclosed in this email.

Acappella Showcase Presents - The 5 Jades Singing Velvet Soul For Lovers Only - Relic Records Production In Cooperation With The Time Capsule Show - 136 Main Street Hackensack, NJ.

My Father was a big part of The Five Jades, singing I Wish You Love, If Someone Would Care to name a few on the Velvet Soul Album


The original group was Ray Goodwin, Manny Hernandez, Spencer Jackson, Dennis Cerrato, & Junior Roman (left to right). When my father passed the album Past Is In The Future (gold colored) was dedicated to my father with a small picture and passage on the back of the album.

My father was killed in a robbery attempt in my grandmothers corner store (Bodega) in NY. Soon after my Uncle Anthony Hernandez, my fathers brother and my Godfather took my dads spot in the group. To this day I am so happy he did. I grew up listening to this music & stories of my dad. Its been a big part of my life and still inspires me and my children today.
