Stream “The Future” by Gene Moore

The soulful vocalist offers a wonderfully personal and intimate project that hits home for audiences of all backgrounds. Equal parts, soul, and gospel, Moore has emerged as a force in music.  Leading the way for THE FUTURE is the first radio single, a beautifully performed ballad, “Recover.” Moore co-wrote “Recover” (with producer Aaron Lindsey and 6x GRAMMY® winner Israel Houghton) out of his own powerful testimony, and it is his triumph and redemption that can be noticeably heard on his art. Other highlights include the contemporary mid-tempo, “Coming Home,” and the thoughtful and worshipful “All For Me.”

Moore has worked for years as an in-demand background singer and session vocalist for music heavyweights, such as India.Arie and Kirk Franklin. His experience and talent are on full display on this freshman offering. 

 

 

He will celebrate his release with a hometown album listening event on Friday, July 28 at the City Cathedral Church, located at 3701 Elgin Street, Houston TX 77004.  Moore will also share his music and story next Friday, August 4 on ‘Great Day Houston.’ 

THE FUTURE is constructed brilliantly with strong and uncomplicated production where Moore’s resonant voice shines. Heralded as a modern-day Donny Hathaway, Moore’s ‘Gospel Soul’ connects deeply with listeners with his unparalleled and clean sound. With tunes that are based on God’s love, light, and healing, THE FUTURE is inspirational, powerful and relevant. It is a must-have for all music collections.

 Pastor and Grammy-Winning Gospel Artist 

Smokie Norful to Release First Book:

TAKE THE LID OFF:

 Trust God, Release the Pressure, and Find the Life He Wants for You

Releasing September 5

Nashville, TN (August 10, 2017) – When the pressure of life seems to boil over—and it does for everyone—Pastor and Grammy-winning musician Smokie Norful has one piece of advice: take the lid off. This concept was inspired by watching his grandmother make her signature dish of sweet rice. When the heat got too high, the pot began hissing and boiling over, like it was about to explode. His grandmother would remind him the only way to avoid an eruption is to remove the lid. Similarly, the only way to avoid an emotional overload is to take our own lids off—that is, to stop being trapped inside ourselves and instead look to God and his grace to show us the strategy for becoming all he intends us to be.

This is the premise behind Norful’s new book Take the Lid Off: Trust God, Release the Pressure, and Find the Life He Wants for You (Thomas Nelson, September 5, 2017).

In Take the Lid Off, Norful— who is the founder and pastor of Victory Cathedral Worship Center, a congregation of 5,000 members with three campuses in the Chicagoland area—outlines four steps that help us to relieve the pressure and draw closer to God in the process: 

  1. Look Inward, experiencing the cleansing of forgiveness and the power of God.
  2. Look Outward, seeking for others to experience the joy of living for God and have the best God has to offer.
  3. Look Upward and marvel at God’s love and strength to accomplish his purposes.
  4. Move Onward, devising a strategy to accomplish all God has put in our hearts to do. 

Norful, through detailed explanations and relatable examples, guides readers in understanding that, when you focus on these four steps, the pressure of life goes down, you gain peace and perception, and things work out much better in the end. By working to “take the lid off,” readers can become the people they were created to be.

To underscore the message of Take the Lid Off Norful is partnering with his long-time label home, Motown Gospel, to release a digital-only album titled Nothing Is Impossible. The twelve-track project, available September 9, 2017, features some of Norful’s most beloved songs of encouragement and inspiration, including “Still Say Thank You,” “No One Else,” and “Run ’Til I Finish.”

Soulful Singer Deon Robertson Releases New Single “My Praise” and Hosts Education Fundraiser Concert For Hometown of Oklahoma City, OK.
 
Oklahoma City, OK — Deon Robertson is an international recording artist who is coupling his music ministry with community outreach.  Deon grew up in Oklahoma City, OK and is a product of the Oklahoma City Public School system.  The current state of the education system in Oklahoma City is in desperate need of assistance and Deon has graciously decided to donate a portion of the proceeds of his new single “My Praise” to the schools in his community that are in need of books.  On August 18th, Deon will host his “My Praise Single Release and Education Fundraiser”.
 
 
“It is unacceptable for our young people to not receive a quality education,” Deon expresses.  “I believe that we must invest in our children’s future together. On the day of my concert, the Oklahoma City Public School Foundation will be presented with fundraising efforts from my concert.”
 
 
The National Center for Educational Statistics reported that students in Oklahoma were performing much lower than students in neighboring states: Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. According to the report, only 30% of fourth grade students and 29% of eighth grade students earned a proficient score on state tests. The Oklahoma State Department of Education reports that in Oklahoma City, 59 of the 70 public schools scored a D or F on the state report card in 2016.  Deon would like to be a positive influence in improving these statistics.
 
Deon is committed to doing his part to combat illiteracy, support better education practices and children in Oklahoma City.  His “My Praise Single Release and Education Fundraiser” will be held at the Oklahoma City Faith Event Center, 800 South Portland Ave, Oklahoma City, OK on Fri, August 18 at 7:00PM.   Tickets can be purchased for $10-$12 at eventbrite.com.  
 
Deon’s soulful new single is written and produced by multi-award winning hit-makers Derek “DC” Clark and Anson Dawkins.  “My Praise” is available on digital music outlets August 18.

July 12, 2017 (Nashville, TN) — The gifted and beautiful singer, actress and comedian, Lexi will bring her talents to Motown Gospel for her first album in five years
 
Lexi Allen is a natural talent who has been singing since she was a child growing up in her grandfather’s church. Her 1990 debut, Call Me Lexi, caught the attention of the world launching a career that would expand into acting, comedy and more. Her 2012 release, the critically acclaimed Phenomenal, featured the hit singles “Burn It All Down,” and “Abide.”

Today, the Detroit-based artist is well-known for being an innovator of online urban and church humor where her YouTube channel has become a go-to site for comedy videos. Creating entertaining and memorable characters, Lexi’s comedic timing and hilarious skits have set her apart as a viral sensation. 
 
Lexi’s powerful vocals and signature tone will help bring her first love — singing— back to the forefront. “For as long as I can remember, there have been a few things that have remained at the center of my life— God, family, music & laughter,” shared Lexi. “Motown Gospel and I agree that it is time to re-focus on the music.  I’m encouraged and motivated, and I’m anticipating great things with such an amazing team at Motown Gospel.”
 
Poised to fill a void in today’s gospel marketplace, Lexi is an undeniable talent. “It is a true joy to partner with an artist who has such a developed sense of creativity and personality,” said Monica Coates, Vice President of A&R, Motown Gospel. “We are excited to support her as she takes her music to the next level.”

A Long Way From Sunday – Anthony Brown & group therAPy
The best-selling DMV-based urban ensemble, Anthony Brown & group therAPy, is releasing its third album, A Long Way From Sunday (Key of A/FairTrade/Tyscot), globally on July 28, 2017. The Grammy® Award nominated group will perform songs from the fourteen-track project during a special,  “A Long Way From Sunday:  The Live Experience,” all-star concert taking place at Washington, D.C.’s historic Warner Theatre at 8:00 PM on the same date as the release which features the Billboard Magazine Gospel Airplay Top Ten radio single, “Trust in You.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
It’s been two years since Brown’s sophomore album, Everyday Jesus, shook up the gospel music industry with the power anthem, “Worth,” which spent an amazing 24 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart while amassing over 12 million YouTube views and 4 million Spotify streams.  The album generated 10 Stellar Awards, as well as, Grammy, BET and Billboard Music Award nominations. 
 
 
 A Long Way From Sunday showcases Brown’s tasteful eclecticism that runs the gamut of retro Pop on “Glad,” trap music on “Lost”, smooth R&B on  “Miracle Worker,” and full-throated balladry on “It Had To Be You” or “Thank You.” The cameos include this millennium’s most popular gospel music missionaries such as Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds and Le’Andria Johnson. Throughout the audio proceedings, group therAPy’s rich and classically tuned vocals are pristine. They provide a perfect counterpoint to Brown’s soulfully husky baritone. 
 
 
“A Long Way From Sunday: The Live Experience” takes place Friday, July 28, 2017 @ 8 PM at The Warner Theatre, 513 13th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.  20004. Tickets range from $50-$75 and are available from Ticketmaster or the Warner Theatre Box Office.

BEBE WINANS’ CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL
MUSICAL PRODUCTION BORN FOR THIS MAKES WEST COAST THEATRICAL BOW;
BRAND NEW ALBUM ON THE HORIZON
 
Six-time Grammy Award-winner and Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee, BeBe Winans, premieres his self-penned musical stage production, Born For This, at Santa Monica’s The Broad Stage for a limited run this Summer. After successful runs in Atlanta, GA, and Washington, D.C., Born For This makes its West Coast debut on July 11th and will run through August 6th.
 
Born For This boasts an esteemed creative team triumvirate, with a book written by Winans, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright (Motown: The Musical, “Greenleaf”), with music supervision by Donald Lawrence. It is an emotional journey that chronicles Winans’ early years as the youngest son born to a family whose name is synonymous with Gospel music, and depicts his rise to superstardom and his internal conflicts between faith and fame. Broadway World declares, “This spectacular musical is impossible not to enjoy.” The captivating production begins in the Winans family’s humble home in Detroit, MI, and follows Winans as he travels the unexpected and unparalleled road toward his destiny.
 
The musical documents the inception of BeBe and CeCe Winans, played with eerie accuracy by Winans’ nephew and niece, Juan Winans and Deborah Joy Winans (“Greenleaf”), respectively, their unconventional beginnings as cast members of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s televangelistic phenomenon, “Praise the Lord,” their chance meeting and subsequent friendship with Whitney Houston, and their relationship with their older brothers, the legendary Gospel quartet, The Winans.
 
Winans has recently announced the forthcoming release of a brand new album, inspired by the show and also titled Born For This. The album will include original studio recordings of songs from the show, and will be Winans’ first solo album in five years. It features guest appearances by Tramaine Hawkins, Tobbi & Tommi, Debra Winans-Lowe, Margaret Bell, Pastor Marvin Winans, and Mom Winans, as well as newcomer Kiandra Richardson, who stuns in her portrayal of Houston in the live production.
 
Tickets for Born For This, the musical, are available now on TheBroadStage.org.
Born For This, the album, will be available soon wherever music is sold.
