"We've been handing out Bibles for almost 40 years. For the first time in my life I'm asking myself this question I wonder how long it will be before this book is canceled?" Michael tweeted. "I know it may seem like a silly thought but it's really not. It's just a matter of time. Frightening!"

  • Grammy Award Nominated Singer Jason Nelson Drops First Single in Three Years
    on March 4, 2021 at 1:00 am

    Jason Nelson, best-known for his No. 1 gospel ballads "Shifting the Atmosphere" and "Forever," is showcasing another dimension to his immense talent on the smooth, mid-tempo track, "Residue" (Tyscot FairTrade). Dueling guitars including Nelson on Bass open this R&B-flavored groove about a bright future with no residue of a dark past. "The blind mark on my soul has been erased," Nelson testifies. The warm track shows the Baltimore, MD native's seemingly effortless and soulfully measured tenor that is on par with that of Charlie Wilson or Luther Vandross. "Residue" was inspired by the idea that being in proximity to GOD has a cleansing effect on a person," Nelson explains. "The song gives insight to how GOD cleans us up when we come to HIM. HE never has the expectation that we are perfect to engage with HIM. He takes us as we are[...]

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Acclaimed hip-hop and spoken word artist, church leader, speaker and community advocate Legin is set to release his latest single, "Feelin Blessed," March 12. The windows-down groove explores life's successes and failures, focusing on Legin's own account of nearly failing his family in pursuit of his dreams.
