Mrs. Martin is continuing her husband's legacy and dream through moving forward with the launch of the Bobby Martin Foundation for Youth as well as the releases of Mr. Martin's unheard new music tracks and productions.

With Bobby Martin's plans to launch a youth non-profit organization, both Bessie Martin and Miguel Martin are set to launch the nonprofit organization on a date to be announced.

Mrs. Bessie Martin says, "In regards to any announcements regarding plans for the nonprofit and the releases that were planned by my husband, I wish to clarify that there are other living family members of the Martin Family but they are not affiliated with Bobby Martin Productions, Bobby Martin Music, or his nonprofit".

"All of Bobby Martin's friends, fans, family, and Jehovah's Witness brothers and sisters have been so supportive. George Benson and Larry Graham are two of his dearest friends. Producers, Gamble and Huff, have been kind and supportive as well. They recently made a really nice statement about Bobby Martin and their affiliation with Bobby Martin.

Grandpa often referred to Gamble, Huff, and Bell as if they were his brothers. My grandfather's musical legacy will never die; you can still hear his music playing on the radio around the world", says Miguel Martin.
