Kanye West made a surprise appearance at Howard University’s homecoming on Saturday morning.
The megastar rapper brought his Sunday Service show right to D.C. for a crowd that gathered at 8 a.m. on the Howard quad for a performance that’s sure to become legend.
Kanye took the stage in a tan coat, performing new verses and raising his hands to the sky for the worship-style show. Grammy-award winning R&B singer Tony Williams presided over the service, conducting a mass of artists including ch
“The Sanctified Church is a protest against the high-brow tendency in Negro Protestant congregations as the Negroes gain more education and wealth.” –Zora Neale Hurston,The Sanctified Church
When Sister Rosetta Tharpe was born on March 20, 1915, black America was in the midst of a populist religious awakening. A decade earlier, in 1906, the Azusa Street Revival birthed the Pentecostal church movement in Los Angeles, setting off sparks around the nation. This was the foundation of a global Pente
Erica Campbell’s song, “I Luh God,” dubbed “trap gospel” by critics and fans, has gotten equal parts criticism and support.
However anyone feels about it, one things for sure: the urban video is hugely popular, surpassing 1 million views on YouTube.
The 43-year-old MyBlock/eOne recording artist shared the news on Twitter, writing, “Yay!!!!” and encouraging her followers to “go see the video if you haven’t already.”
The light-hearted, trendy video features Campbell in several fun outfit chan
Gospel singer turned fashion designer Kierra Sheard officially launched her MyEleven60.com this past weekend, revealing select pieces from her plus-size clothing line, Eleven60.
The new brand caters to fashion-forward, full-figured women, who also have, ahem, fuller purses.
It ain’t cheap, darling.
The lowest cost item on the site is a $185 pair of jeans ($135 on sale). The most expensive item is a $425 trench coat ($395 on sale).
The tagline is “High-end Meets The Curvy Woman,” after all.
Known as the “Godfather of Soul,” James Brown’s work still influences the music industry more than six years after his death.
A feature film about his life hits theaters Friday, and you might be surprised to learn that the church played a big influence in his life and legacy.
Brown’s story is a real life tale of rags-to-riches, with a few bumps on the journey.
“He had to fend for himself, so he became a hustler,” Gospel music historian Bill Carpenter said.
Carpenter listened to Brown as a ch
Christian hip-hop has made some notable inroads in the last few years, especially in the mainstream market. Popular rapper Lecrae has won Grammy, Stellar, and Dove awards, and he, along with other Christian artists, appear regularly on networks like BET and MTV. Does this mean the movement that emerged in the early ’80s as Gospel rap has finally arrived?
The question might be especially relevant after it was reported that recording artists Flame, Lecrae, and others filed a lawsuit ag
Destiny’s Child, the R&B women’s group from the early 2000s, disbanded in 2005, but not before leaving behind a legion of peppy dance tunes and many songs that made their way to the top of the charts. Even though they were greatly recognized by secular listeners, in some cases, such as their single “Survivor,” the ladies even affirmed their Christian beliefs in the lyrics.
Upon their dissolution, the three ladies that made up the group went their separate ways and pursued their independent
You can shut down your computer after you read this article. Turn on your away message, go home, and get into bed, because nothing else you do today can possibly top the news that, for one video only, the women of Destiny’s Child are BACK TOGETHER.
In the video for her new single “Say Yes,” Williams dances exuberantly down side streets and in front of a tree, singing about how “when Jesus say yes, nobody can say no.” After the first chorus, Beyoncé shows up in
The 2014 gospel nominations have been announced for the annual BET Awards, and with such a great year for gospel music, choosing a winner will be a tough call.
Whoever walks away with the statue, it will be a collective victory for the genre in light of reports that BET has chosen to axe its annual “Celebration of Gospel,” further limiting the exposure of the niche genre.
This year, despite the downside of losing one of the flagship faith-based programs on one of the few networks representing
Out with the old and in with the new! Taraji P. Henson is officially replacing comedian/actor/talk show host, Steve Harvey, as the new host of BET’s Celebration of Gospel: Forward In Faith.

Dear Friend, the Bible declares that one day you will die and then stand face to face with God to be judged. Hebrews 9:27 reads, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." Nothing in your entire life could be more important than being ready for that day, because it will determine whether you will spend eternity in heaven or in hell.
