Unlike many other gospel artist, Kevin LeVar desires to record his new gospel album with drug dealers and prostitutes at The Dream Center in Los Angeles. You see, this is what Jesus Christ would do, He would want to reach out and be around those who are outcasts within our society. One of the main things to acknowledge is that these drug dealers and prostitutes who will be recording with him are not hypocrites. Therefore, it's better to record with them, instead of a lot of these gospel artists who are not living and acting holy and acting as though they are representing Christ through gospel music.
According to ChristianPost.com, instead of recording his latest material in a fancy studio with some of gospel music's biggest names that he might have had access to, LeVar opted to work out of The Dream Center, a rehabilitation facility in Los Angeles, Calif.
We look forward to hearing this new album recorded at The Dream Center, recorded by Kevin LeVar and we know it will be very good.

Lecrae First Number-One Christian Hip-Hop Artist in iTunes History, Says Rapper; Did He Do It God's Way?
When we read the article from our source, we couldn't help but ask ourselves, how did Lecrae top the charts in iTunes history? It's so very clear when we examine the change within the gospel music industry in the past 25 years we have noticed many artists are not making music that is completely holy. When most of them perform, they are very similar to worldly artists and it seems like any signs of the Holy Ghost must be obsolete in order to gain popularity and much fortune. Therefore, for Lecrae to say he is so "big" in iTunes history over any other Christian Hip-Hop artists does not surprise us at all. When you are a gospel artists who has not been seem to be separate from the world, then of course, you are going to get a lot of fans who support you. He's probably the biggest artist who have 'bridged the gap' without any anointing whatsoever, allegedly.
Mark 8:36 left us with this and we should never depart from it: 'For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?'

On this following video, we learned a lot of about what goes on behind the scenes of the organization of GMWA. It seems like Dr. Al Hobbs was not only an intelligent man, but very creative. He explained what the Gospel Music Worship of America gives to potential artists and what his two roles were. He did so much with GMWA, we wonder who will be able to take on this dual positions now that he has passed on? May he rest in peace.
