Gerald Levert’s Son Is Grown Now And Looks So Much Like Him, It’s Scary
The late, great Gerald Levert’s 30 year old son looks so much like his dad, it’s almost scary and when we saw more recent pics of him getting his grown man on, we all were over here doing double takes to make sure it wasn’t an old pic of Gerald instead.
His name is LeMicah Levert and he’s Gerald’s first born. LeMicah was only 16 years old when Gerald sadly passed away in 2006. Although their time was cut short, LeMicah often pays tributes to his dad online and he also reminisces about how extremely close they were.
Gerald would be very proud of his son these days, he graduated from Morehouse College in 2013 and is now continuing to pursue his acting career, as well as produce, write, and manage music artists. He doesn’t sing though, which is what a lot of people often wonder about him, being that he came from a bloodline of singers- his Dad; his uncle Sean Levert; and of course, his grandfather Eddie Levert (of The O’Jays).
Here is a portion of an interview LeMicah did with HowsMyRolling a while back, where he gave some insight into who he is and his relationship with his dad and grandad:
Has acting been something you recently started ?
“No I started acting when I was a little kid like 6 or 7 I did a little work on Nickelodeon, couple commercials. I went to an Arts school. I have an artistic side. My dad died when I was 16 and I felt I had to be obligated to my family and after being in college and being around different things I really felt like I had to get back in acting, that’s where I am meant to be. Im doing some things at Morehouse College and did some work with Tyler Perry.”
Do you consider yourself a triple threat?
“I don’t sing, I’ll leave that up to my dad and my grandfather. But I have a studio so I record a lot of artist and I help manage and do things of that nature. I always say “Acting is my passion but Music is what I know.” I always wanted to be an executive of a record label.”
Who would be your ideal role to play?
“My Dad. I would really like to play my dad. Im trying to write a story about him. That’s one person I’ve imitated my entire life. To play him or my grandfather would a blessing, that’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
I think LeMicah’s idea of playing his dad is a good one. I can’t think of any other actor who would be more perfect for that role. I’m not sure how good his acting skills are, but he more than likely could pull it off because he probably just has all of the natural nuances and mannerisms of his Dad, just like Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jr., had in Straight Outta Compton. Hopefully we’ll get to see LeMicah as Gerald Levert one day, we’ll keep our fingers crossed on that one.
We’re sure Gerald Levert would be beaming with pride right about now over his son, as well as his other children. It’s still hard to believe that Gerald –a dude who was so full of life and positive energy — is no longer here. His legacy will continue to live on through his children, his dad, his loved ones and his fans.
