Carman to Release New Album, Go on Tour, Despite Cancer



Christian music veteran Carman, who was diagnosed with incurable cancer earlier this year, has raised more than $233,000 to fund his first independent album in a decade.

He credited kickstarter.com, a "crowd-funding" website that raises money for creative projects, to help pay for his first independent album and music video.

Launched April 19, Carman's campaign exceeded its $200,000 goal in 25 days, making it the second most-funded music project on Kickstarter, the singer and evangelist said. The campaign's deadline is June 18, and fans can continue to make donations.

"I'm so excited about this incredible opportunity we all have through Kickstarter to make something happen as a team and a family," Carman said. "Cancer pronounced a death sentence, but you have been life to me, rallying me back into the fight and praying me back to my feet. As one fan said on my Facebook page, 'Look at what Jesus did in three years.' So as for you and me, with this new project and us working together, the next three years are going to be a blast."

Don Moen celebrates 40th Wedding Anniversary!


Don and Laura Moen got married this day 40 years ago! It has been a jolly ride for these two. This is what Don had to say on how they met and the journey so far.

Culled from donmoenandfriends

Wow! I’m sitting here in St. Thomas, USVI reading over all the wonderful greetings and blessings from friends all over the world. My heart is touched deeply! And, I receive all of your many blessings and kind words! Yes, God has been so faithful!

Several of you have asked how it all began, so I thought I’d respond briefly. Laura and I got married May 19th, 1973 after a concert in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We had been touring South Africa and Europe for 12 months prior to that. Laura was a nanny to Evangelist Terry Law’s 8 month old girl (Misty) and our team photographer! We had met at Oral Roberts University two years earlier in April 1971. It was love at first sight (at least for me!). It took Laura a little longer!! Ha!!

Kirk Franklin's Gospel Brunch


Gospel icon Kirk Franklin made it a very special Mother’s Day for two sold-out sittings at the inaugural Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch at House of Blues on sunday in West Hollywood, CA.  Mr. Franklin, who for the past few months has been hard at work alongside House of Blues producers creating a new Gospel brunch experience, was at the club’s West Hollywood location to oversee the debut of the reinvented Sunday institution, currently celebrating its 20th year.
The Grammy Award winning performer couldn't be kept off the stage as he led the band and choir through a number of inspirational classics.  Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch at House of Blues is a celebration of the audience as much as one of America’s most distinctive genres of music.  Mr. Franklin encouraged audience involvement throughout the set, bringing up music fans young and old to sing and participate in the festive performance.  The result was an uplifting, get-on-your-feet celebration heavy on love and celebration of friends and family.

NEWS: Muyiwa & Riversongz Sign New Deal With Global Organization Food For The Hungry



On 10th May 2013 Muyiwa & Riversongz become the first group/artist from the UK Gospel industry to sign an agreement with global organization Food For The Hungry.

Food For The Hungry is a Christian organisation engaged in sustainable development work in some of the poorest regions of the world. They believe that communities themselves can overcome the poverty in which they live, which is why they walk together with community churches, leaders and families to find sustainable solutions.

Muyiwa & Riversongz join a plethora of established Christian artists that represent Food For The Hungry in their respective countries such as tobyMac, Leeland, Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Jesus Culture and more.
“For me the big thing about it is that it’s not just working with a charity; I’ve done that before on our first tour with World Vision and work with Compassion,” says Muyiwa. This is more than just sponsoring a child. A relationship is being built and God is enabling us to touch lives around the world and raise the profile of this great initiative.

Talks are currently taking place for a major USA artist and Muyiwa & Riversongz to embark on a UK and USA tour together in support for Food For The Hungry. More information will be released soon.

ID Cabasa's wife joins the music train with new song - Baba Mimo


Sijuade might appear a new comer to the gospel music industry but she has released a powerful song. Baba Mimo extols God and reminds us about how loving our God is no matter what we go through. A song of encouragement, this song was brilliantly done, setting the standard for future releases from this artiste.

Pat Uwaje-King of Midnight Crew also drops single - Eze



This fantastic multicultural high-praise song reassures us of God’s faithfulness. The song is not indigenous in lyrics alone but also in the music. Patricia Uwaje-King ‘s new song is brilliantly written to cut across the young and old in the church. It won’t be long before the song rises to the very top on the Nigerian Gospel music charts.


Hot & New: Pastor J Featuring Mike Todd - Proverbs 31



This is the gospel song that Christian single (guys) have been waiting for. Based on the popular Proverbs 31 chapter in The Bible which extols the virtues of a good wife, Pastor Jimmy Odukoya did a brilliant job converting the chapter into solid rhymes with Mike Todd providing the horns.


Mike Abdul of Mid Night Crew drops first single - MORIRE


Well as they say its better late than never (lol). This song has been out for a while but for one reason or the other I didn't put it up. Its a beautiful song and I can't deny my loyal readers the joy of hearing it. So here it is! Mike Abdul with Morire featuring Oba gbogbo aye crooner Monique. Enjoy!

New Single: Izzy ft Anu - Oluwa Lo Se Yi (Download)



Just a few months ago, the gospel hit by U.S-based Nigerian, ‘Izzy’ titled “Mukulu mukeke”, got everyone dancing and grooving. Here is another hit, but now he features Esther award winning artiste and NGMA & Crystal Award Nominee, “Anu”, based in the Unites States, who also recently released her popular hit “Ayo mi tide”.
Trust me, this collaboration is definitely one of the best African Gospel collaborations ever heard or released in the United States. These two artistes, ‘Izzy’ and ‘Anu’ consistently kept the groove on throughout this song. In fact, this is completely exceptional. It is great to see that gospel songs are beginning to receive a high level of acceptance in the music industry. ‘Oluwa lo seyi’, produced by Dammydior, is unarguably a perfect gospel song for the African audience and worldwide. Anyways, enough of the talking and hyping; let the song speak for itself…
