Recently, in headline news, Kanye West decided to do Gospel music. It seems that the “Jesus Walks,” rapper has made a turn from the secular culture to a now Gospel focus. This is so exciting, as I have been praying for him to come to know the truth of the good news, aka “gospel” of Jesus Christ. Jesus died to save sinners, which all of us are, according to the Word of God.

It is very interesting from his Yeezus projects to his now seemingly devoted faith. I pray that Kanye West is sincere in his devotion to his commitment to do christian gospel music. I know that since I first heard his music I felt he was different than any other artist and I really thought he was making an impact on culture by not rapping initially about popping bottles and models. West has appeared to make a come back and turn around to a genuine faith and dedication to the Lord.

According to sources, West also announced that he “is no longer making secular music” and will focus on gospel “from here on out.” —AV CLUB

According to Variety Magazine, West, “As part of the unusual rollout of Kanye West’s forthcoming album “Jesus Is King” — which is apparently now being released sometime today — IMAX announced that it is releasing a companion film of the album, bearing the same name. It will be released exclusively in IMAX theatres around the world on Friday, October 25, 2019.

‘Filmed in the summer of 2019, ‘Jesus Is King’ brings Kanye West’s famed Sunday Service to life in the Roden Crater, visionary artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert,’ a release from IMAX said of the film.”

The story of “The Impossible” book, is now a major motion picture with Twentieth Century Fox Films called, “Breakthrough” (from the producer of Miracles from Heaven) is now in theaters.

Here is the official synopsis of the film from the official Breakthrough movie website: “When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.

I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Joyce Smith (The Impossible) and the mother of John Smith, the main character of the film Breakthrough. I also interviewed Pastor Jason Noble, who came immediately on the scene to join Mrs. Smith in prayer.

60E8DD60-6A77-4664-BB08-DAAC7E77F314

Singer-songwriter Tori Kelly is performing at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1, 2019 and she is performing with country stars Dan and Shay. The event will be hosted by former American Idol winner and singer Kelly Clarkson. 

Recently, Tori Kelly released her latest single, “Change Your Mind,” and also has her “acoustic sessions” out now. Go to her official website for more information about her tour dates and also to download her music at: http://www.torikellymusic.com 

Tori Kelly was discovered on YouTube and is now signed with Capitol Records and she won a Grammy for “Hiding Place” for the best Gospel Album and Best Gospel Performance Single. She is a christian but is more undercover in the secular world and this was her first gospel or faith based project. 

In 2018, Tori was interviewed with I AM SECOND, and shared her testimony and relationship with God. She is so inspiring and her voice is so beautiful! She is definitely one of my favorite artists and it is so neat to see her journey from being a Youtuber to becoming such a powerful voice in our generation! 

Check out the video and the official white chair interview below:

Do you think she is one of the more positive leaders in Hollywood, which I call the move in the industry “Holy-Wood?” Let us pray for her to keep shining her light and for more artists like her to emerge in the music business!

Lauren Daigle’s YOU SAY on Secular Radio

Recently, I was listening to secular radio 104.3 FM (MY FM), and I heard worship leader and CCM artist Lauren Daigle singing, “You Say.” This warmed my heart so much that’s God’s truth is being poured out over the airwaves. This is the move of HOLY-WOOD. It’s the subtle tidle wave of the Holy Spirit being poured out and splashing over the radio, TV, in films and in other spheres of influence.

Heres the link to “YOU SAY” with the lyrics:

 

I love Daigle’s voice as it sounds like a Kari Jobe mix with an Adele vibe. She’s such an amazing artist, singer and worshipper. God opened some big doors for Lauren Daigle with “Jimmy Kimmel,” “Dancing with the Stars,” and more!

I truley believe there’s a move in Hollywood and that God is changing the airwaves to make it Holy-Wood! Comment below if you agree! Keep praying for our leaders, and for more of God’s army to arise in this hour! Amen!

New Song “ARMY FRONTLINES”

I declare this over Hollywood, and pray for revival over the land. I pray for the purity movement and for people to come to know the Lord through the airwaves. I pray this song blesses you, and encourages you, especially if you are on the front lines of media, ministry or in Hollywood.

 

Lauren Daigle New Album Debuts to #1 & She Appears on ELLEN’s Daytime Show

According to sources, Lauren Daigle, christian worship CCM artist reached to the top of the charts with her latest album. She sounds like a mixture between Kari Jobe meets Adele, and has a raspy breathy voice that is powerful and life changing. Her songs, “Trust in You,” and “How Can It Be,” (2015) are some of my favorites from her first debut album. She has been nominated for a Grammy and is a Dove Award winning artist.

Recently, Daigle’s new released album, “Look Up Child,” reached #1 on the charts and she was invited to come on to the daytime talk show “ELLEN.” This is a big step in the christian music world, in what I call HOLYWOOD, where artists are merging into the secular to shine their light. I love seeing someone who I have been so impacted by musically, vocally and even spiritually in my own walk with the Lord through worship to see her reach so many people.

It’s wonderful to see that people are able to use their gifts and talents to bless others, plant seeds, share the Gospel and even spread hope in the midst of hard times. Lauren Daigle is a brave singer-songwriter to be able to address some of her own personal struggles through writing her latest album, which is real and raw.

Lecrae and Tori Kelly Perform on “Good Morning America”

BA46C6DC-A018-4F82-9C86-BD86DC907E7C

Lecrae is a two-time Grammy-winning artist and has merged from the Christian music industry into the secular. He is well known for his album Gravity (one of my favorites), along with Anomaly and Church Clothes, the mixtape. Lecrae has emerged from Christian networks such as JUCE TV Network to BET, and has climbed the charts from the gospel genres in music to the mainstream media.
Tori Kelly was discovered on YouTube by Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. Kelly was signed to Capitol Records after releasing her own independent EP, Handmade Songs by Tori Kelly, while posting on her YouTube channel. Her debut album, Unbreakable Smile, released in the secular world of music, got her a spot on the Billboard Hot 100’s list for her single, “Nobody Love.” She has come a long way, being nominated for a Grammy, working with artists like Amy Grant and now Lecrae. Kelly is one of those artists I feel are undercover for the Lord, but are super successful and a positive influence.
Click here to watch Lecrae and Tori Kelly’s live performance on ABC’s Good Morning America with their song “I’ll Find You.”

Check out the lyrics in the song by Lecrae:
They say fear haunts
And pain hates
I say pain strengthens
And fear drives faith
And I don’t know all of the outcomes
Don’t know what happens tomorrow
But when that ocean of doubt comes
Don’t let me drown in my sorrow
And don’t let me stay at the bottom
I feel like this hole is too deep to climb
I’ve been lookin’ for a way out
But I’ll settle for a peace of mind
Picking up the pieces of my life and hopin’ that I’ll put together something right
Tell me all I got is all I need
Tell me you gonna help me stand and fight
The world trying to play with my soul
I’m just trying to find where to go
I’m trying to remember the way
I’m trying to get back to my home
But I can’t do this on my own
That’s why I’m just trusting in you
‘Cuz I don’t know where else to go
And I don’t know what else to do
No, don’t let the fear
Make you feel like you can’t fight this on your own
You know I, I’ll be there for you no matter where you go
You’ll never be alone, no…
