Can fasting help your marriage? Tina Campbell of Mary Mary believes so


The Christian Post reported on May 28 that Tina Campbell of the contemporary gospel music duo Mary Mary says she and her husband are fasting to restore their marriage.
The other half of the music duo Mary Mary is Erica Campbell. Both Christian singers are sisters who married men with the last name "Campbell."
Tina Campell, 39, admits to having infidelities in her marriage. She is married to gospel drummer Teddy Campbell, 38, who has also worked as the percussionist for "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Together the couple has four children.
Campbell has been transparent about her husband's previous infidelities. She speaks out about them in the June issue of Ebony magazine. She also explains how they are striving to resolve their marital problems on her website.
Campbell is fasting to deal with infidelities in her marriage, and she invites others to fast along with her for the sake of saving her marriage.
She writes:
"I'm assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness and despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself. My husband's struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over two decades."
The singer says the couple is not mad at each other, but she blames the devil for using strongholds that originated in their childhoods to break them apart.
Actually, the fast began a few days ago. Here is Campbell's invitation:
"Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance and restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayers and give us a deeper love and commitment to him and to each other."
The singer explained that she and her husband believe God still works miracles, and He can give them the greatest marriage they could ever imagine. That's why they decided to engage in the fast and asked others to pray for their marriage.
Campell concludes:
"We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help."
Are you willing to accept Campbell's invitation and to pray and fast along with her and her husband for the restoration of their marriage?

Get and listen to "ODUN" by C-STAS


Ok fam, i had to put this one up, This song "ODUN" was premiered sometimes in march 2013 and has since been blessing souls, I got another listen to this song today and decided to put it up here.

C-STAS

Meet the C-Stas: a musical group focused at touching lives through spirit inspired music, United by their passion for God and music. They spent most of their spare time together as room mates working, building and bonding. Sang together in the same choir, Chapel of His glory campus fellowship and Triumphant family choir.. Also ministered together at different campus fellowships. Moving from state to state as steered by the wheels of destiny. They started an all female group called C-STAS. Six in number at first, but two of the founding members left to pursue other endeavors.

Now emerged to shine as light in the darkness, with their music pointing at Christ as the Lord over all.
Four beautiful young ladies; Nanatsa, Layray, BeeNaya and BeeDeL. They are popularly known as C-STAS

Their style of music cannot be categorised as a particular genre as their inspirations are drawn from deep convictions rooted in the spirit of God and heavy exposure to music at a tender age. Their sounds ranging from R&B, Soul, Rock, Fuji, Afro-Beat, Traditional folk, etc. So at best their style of music can be best described as “ECLECTIC”

Their latest single “ODUN” is a song that talks about the “sweetness” of God’s love and how it elevates us into greater heights. You know it got to a point that Jesus even prayed that ‘this cup should pass by’ but He said ‘nevertheless Lord let Your will be done’ indicating that Love is not all d time sweet but when its in God’s will you’ll overcome its challenges without giving up. Many waters can’t quench Love,love is patient,love is God and God is Love. I God (LOVE) U.


Odun bi Oyin oooooo


Be richly Blessed

{FRESH} BURN OUT 2013 by SoulflameMX & IHN Mx


You must have heard of the christian rap group called SoulFlame and also
the christian rap crew In His Name (IHN). Now here is something you've not
heard in years; IHN and SoulFlame on the same track.

Jesus made a lot of things happen, he walked on water and raised the dead
and greatest of all, he put IHN and SoulFlame on the same song. This is
definitely the biggest HipHop collaboration of the year. We have seen
SoulFlamers that burst into tongues while spitting their verse in the
booth, we've also seen IHNites who convinced the microphone to give its
life to Christ.

You only get to see this amount of dopeness on a single joint once in 33.56
years. While I was trying to understand TY Stamina's warri english I got
caught up in Sonita's relaxed style, then I discovered that Ovie could rap
for 2.56 weeks without breathing and that rookie MC Love was no rookie. At
the end of the song I gained knowledge and a well deserved headache.

New Reality Show: Pastors of L.A. On Oxygen


“Oxygen Network announced the beginning of production on Pastors of LA, a new reality series following the lives of 6 prominent leading ministers including RCA Inspiration recording artist Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Noel Jones, Pastor Ron Gibson and Bishop Clarence McClendon. Pastor Wayne Chaney and Jay Haizlip round out the cast. The show is produced by Lemuel Plummer and Holly Davis Carter (The Sheards) and is scheduled to debut on Oxygen in the fall.”-GospelFlava.com
reality“‘Pastors of L.A.’ documents these larger than life characters who are rock stars in their communities, with a fresh, unique perspective that will resonate with our young audience,” said Rod Aissa, Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “By teaming up with Lemuel and Holly who are some of the best creative minds in the business and heavily respected within this community, we can deliver this authentic series with integrity, while also staying right on brand with Oxygen.”
“We are delighted to work with Oxygen to develop this groundbreaking series on the extraordinary lives of some of the most prominent pastors in America,” said Lemuel Plummer. “I come to this project with a respect and understanding of their world, having grown up as the son of a pastor and religious broadcasters. We intend to portray the human side of these pastors and the real world in which they live and work.”
“This show documents a journey of transparency from one man to the next as they endeavor to lead others to their own truth and self-discovery,” adds Holly Carter who holds a doctorate of divinity with an emphasis on marketplace ministry and is the daughter of a pastor and an industry veteran in faith and inspirational development and programming. “It’s a dose of reality and a pound of redemption coming from a creative team reared in the church.” -TheFutonCritic.com
LOL! Ok, I don’t know why I’m laughing, but I am! Folks are going still going HAM off of Pastor’s Wives of LA. So now it’s the fellas turn.  With Deitrick Haddon leading the helm, chile, I can’t wait to see what he is going to talk about! Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Clarence McClendon, oh girl, this has all kinds of potential to be messy.  I do hope though that we get to see some repentance and Gods’ mercy and grace happen in the lives of these individuals who’ve made headlines for those “not-so-christian” moments. So GO!! What do y’all think and will you be tuning in?!

Holy Hip-Hop Grows Old


If you wanted to trace the roots of Christian hip-hop, I'd tell you all about dc Talk.
At age 13, following a Geoff Moore and the Distance concert, I stood up to commit myself to Jesus, despite the voice inside my head that said the boys in my youth group would think I was a dork for doing so. Riding home in the backseat that night, I felt my heart "strangely warmed," and I've been a Jesus freak ever since.
Soon after that concert in 1996, I naturally wanted to listen to music about Jesus—and being a teenager in the mid-'90s, I had plenty to choose from. This was arguably the golden era of contemporary Christian music (CCM), when you could hear Jars of Clay's "Flood" and Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me" on secular radio, and Tooth & Nail Records and bands like MxPx and Starflyer 59 made it possible to be both cool and Jesus-y.
dc Talk's Jesus Freak album had recently gone double platinum, debuting at 16 on the Billboard charts. Mixing rock, pop, and hip-hop, it was a derivative of Nirvana and A Tribe Called Quest, calling American Christians to stand up for truth when debates about prayer in public schools threatened to silence them. (Then again, we always had See You at the Pole.) I listened to the CD nonstop.
That dc Talk copied secular artists for evangelistic ends fit them neatly into the history of ccm, a subgenre born in the late-'60s that often takes the best of non-Christian music and baptizes it with biblical lyrics. But the Christian hip-hop scene has evolved. As this month's cover story suggests, a new crop of artists—including the one on our cover, Lecrae—is transcending CCM's copycat ways by mixing beats and rhymes that would hold up in any Kanye West comparison. And they're doing so, argues theologian Russell Moore, in ways that return hip-hop to its very roots and infuse the gospel with renewed edge. Call it "W.W. Jay-Z," which starts on page 22.
Back to dc Talk. In their early days—I mean Nu Thang early, 1990—they released a song called "I Luv Rap Music." A sampling: "Ya know, I asked Christ to come into my heart / And he gave me a brand new start / And on top of dat, he gave me my dreams / Doin' hip-hop music with a Christian theme." It goes without saying that "hip-hop music with a Christian theme" has grown up, thankfully. But I'd also challenge any reader to a word-by-word recount of all the verses in "Jesus Freak," which nearly 20 years ago helped more deeply plant this once-new Christian into the Word. Word.

{NEW MUSIC} "Oluwa lo seyi" by Izzy ft Anu


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… Enjoy “Oluwa lo seyi” by Izzy (ft. Anu), as we keep praising “Our Maker”: God Almighty. “Oluwa lo se yi” means “God has done it”. Be blessed.

{NEW} "BROKEN RECORD" By "I_Kan" Ft Deo {Free Download}



I_Kan is a young christian rapper, still in school studying elect/elect engr. in FUT, Minna. Real names, Aken Ezra Habu, from Taraba State. Fell in love with rap music as a child but started writing his own lines in junior secondary school back in Jos, 2003/2004. It was really difficult at that time because he wanted to be gospel but couldn't write gospel rhymes.. it seemed impossible but kept coming slowly!! Years later, after getting admission into FUT Minna, he got to listen to songs from Lecrae, Dwayne Triumph, Tedashi, Trip Lee, Spokxman, IHN, soulflame, etc. through some friends and they pressed his mumu button.. lol!! Decided to join WWJD's (What Will Jesus Do?) rap crew i.e IHN(In His Name) in 200L and that was it!! He learnt everything he know's now under the then co-ordinator, Exodus who worked on his spirituality and helped him discover his style!! Now he goes by the name "i_kan", as it implies "I can" from Phil. 4:13!! Doing what I can do to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ!!

...And again, here comes this blend of skill and passion crafted into words, delivered on an unlucky beat.
I_kan takes rap to the extreme with an unbelievable pulsating flow on "The Broken Record" with great help from fellow preacher/rapper and friend since JSS 1, DEO.
On this song he explains the reasons for his addiction to God, while DEO throws his Jesus flaunt around for everyone to catch. They are stuck on the same message of Christ, stuck on the same words like a broken record. After listening to the song I concluded that the young rapper had a family relationship with Tedashii. That would be the only explanation as to why he could brake and speed simultaneously on a deep crunk beat; one which he produced himself.
I_kan has been a member of the christian club WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?) Minna and belongs to the rap crew IHN (In His Name) with influences from Spokesman, Exodus, MIC and others. You can follow him on twitter @I_ikanDdr and DEO @deo_diyo

I'll be bragging on my Lord, bragging on my Lord....

You might not understand what I'm saying till you download this track for yourself!

MOTOWN GOSPEL SIGNS CELEBRATED ARTIST AND WORSHIP LEADER MICAH STAMPLEY

 New Studio Album Set For Release Winter 2013

 Project Features Gospel Legends

Karen Clark-Sheard and Donnie McClurkin

NASHVILLE, TN (May 2, 2013) —-Motown Gospel is pleased to announce the signing of celebrated artist Micah Stampley. Known for his worship-filled style and stunning vocal range, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter came to national prominence in 2005 with the release of the critically acclaimed album The Song Book of Micah. That project, which was released on Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Dexterity Sounds/EMI Gospel label, featured the instant smash, now classic anthem “Take My Life.”

“I’m excited to be working with Ken Pennell, Larry Blackwell, and the Motown Gospel family to take my ministry and career to the next level,” Stampley says. “It’s great to be home with a new start, a new vision, a new passion, and a new sound that I’m ready to share with the world.”

Slated for release in Winter 2013, the yet-to-be-titled studio project is produced by multi-award-winning producer Asaph “Alex” Ward (Kim Burrell, Dorinda Clark-Cole), and will feature guest appearances by Gospel legends Donnie McClurkin and Karen Clark-Sheard. The album will also feature a cover of the chart-topping Chris Tomlin hit “Our God.”

“This is a very exciting time for me right now,” Stampley says. “I’m honored and overwhelmed to be working with such a genius like Asaph ‘Alex’ Ward, one of the most profound producers I have ever had the opportunity of working with.”

The admiration is mutual: “Micah Stampley is at his best yet!” says Ward. It is a pleasure to be working with an anointed passionate singer. I am very excited about this record. It’s going to bless everyone.”
