Is There Such a Thing As Culture In Gospel and Church Music?


On the Janet Mefferd Radio Show, the subject came up about culture in gospel and church music when two callers identified themselves as African Americans.  Let us be very clear with you, there is no such a thing as culture when it comes to gospel and church music, because it is God's music and it does not belong to the world. When music is created by God through appointed and gifted musicians and composers, it is directly from Him, but when music is created by man, that is man-made, it has a culture that is similar to Satan's music in the world.   

When did the subject of culture come up in gospel music?  Simply, when the rebellion of the black church and gospel music artists began to overshadow anointed music within the gospel music industry and the Pentecostal, Baptist and AME churches.  When those particular churches became corporate, they accepted the excuse of culture being the reason to allow church music to mutually collaborate with worldly secular music.  Can we tell the whole truth?  Back in the day, church music in black and white churches did not include rock or hip hop.   Neither race can ever say that is their roots.   Specifically in the black church, they cannot ever claim their culture is hip hop, because when their ancestors were enslaved in America, there was no such a thing, it was only spirituals that saved them from the dominion of their slave masters.  If you notice, hip hop gospel has not been strong enough to influence complete deliverance, it retains the spirit of idolatry.   Fans glorify gospel artists as superstars instead of glorifying God.  They are incapable of enjoying their gospel music idols as messengers of Christ, because most gospel artists do not represent themselves as ministers, only entertainers.  Therefore, culture is obsolete in God's Kingdom.

In God's Kingdom, there is not spirit of idolatry, witchcraft or carnality.   In God's Kingdom, there is a spirit of complete redemption to live holy and righteous, not any sort of identity to the world that glorifies and praises Satan.  For example, when Angelica Zambrano allegedly saw Michael Jackson in hell, Jesus did not say it was his culture to dance.   Jesus Christ told Angelica Zambrano that Michael Jackson sold his soul to the Devil and it was demons that was doing the dancing through him, in so many words.  Therefore, none of us can ever say it is okay to enjoy or sing all types of gospel music, because that's our culture.  If it has any similarities to Michael Jackson's music or any other secular music artist like Beyonce, Rihanna, Jay-z, Willow Smith, Usher, Madonna, Brittney Spears...it has nothing to do with culture, it is not God's music and as a Christian you are not allowed to sing, listen to it or even create it.

So is there any sort of culture in gospel and church music?  Absolutely not, only music that is predestined by God and His angels is what we are created to enjoy.  Gospel music that only focuses on glorifying Jesus Christ, no man nor woman.  For example, spirituals was strong enough to deliver slaves many years ago in America, because it touched the heavens and God could understand the sincerity of the hearts of those whom yearned to know Him.  However, most church and gospel music of today is all about fame and fortune and it is not strong enough to deliver any soul out of bondage.   It must be strong enough to relate to God only, because He cannot understand music that is similar to Satan worshipers and those who idolize them.   He can only comprehend gospel and church music that completely praises and worships Him.  In the Holy Bible, God's Word lets us know He is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5).   Now, can you imagine how God must feel at all of those who claim culture is the reason why they must have hip hop gospel or christian rock even within church music?   Those two genres identify with the secular world, it has nothing to do with Jesus Christ.  If you cannot live without culture of what you claim is hip hop gospel or christian rock in your gospel or church music, then you do not need it.  No culture should ever take away from God's glory, because if it does it should not be included in the gospel music industry or church music.  Furthermore, God has His own music, He does not need to identify with Satan's music to save the world.  Neither should you need any music similar to secular artists to profess salvation.  If you are truly a child of God, you should desire to be completely holy and righteous.   

We are living in such an evil age of those who claim they are saved, but cannot sit in a church service that does not have hip hop or rock music.  Shame on the gospel music artists or shame on the church who has collaborated with them to influence the youth as though Jesus Christ is not exciting without hip hop or rock music during His time of praise and worship in church or even at a concert.

Edwin Hawkins Advertises His Family's Cafe On Myspace


Now, this is the type of thing we know God is expecting among gospel artists.   He wants them to be business minded, not just always wanting to put on a show as though that's all they can do, if that much.  God wants gospel artists to stop seeking fame and fortune off of His music, although He knows you have got to live.   Therefore, if you desire to make a living as a gospel artists seek no more to fortune by selling your music, because you should be doing it for God only.   The Hawkins Family is showing their many talents and this one just may make them all a fortune, so they can go down in history as not just a family of gospel artists, but also entrepreneurs.   Let us pray that many more gospel artists follow in the footsteps of The Hawkins Family.  Surprisingly, they opened this cafe back in 2010, after the home-going of Bishop Walter L. Hawkins, founder and pastor of the Love Center Church.

This is just awesome.  You see Bishop Walter Hawkins, ex-wife Tramaine's mother had a catering service and restaurant for many years.   Lois The Pie Queen is the name of it and Tramaine is now carrying on her mother's business.   So now, we see her late ex-husband's family can also offer delicious food to eager customers who no doubt are going to enjoy eating at their cafe.

Furthermore, we have been waiting to hear about more gospel artists going into business for themselves, so they can not seem as though they are incapable of becoming entrepreneurs.  Delite Hawkins Family Cafe is located in the heart of Manteca, California, which is the central valley, the same area near Ripon where Edwin Hawkins yet resides and where the late Bishop Walter Hawkins lived on many acres of land.   This family is really blessed, we just expect for more gospel artists to follow in their footsteps of success and stop using God's music to make them wealthy, because as a gospel artists, you should be doing it just to win souls, that's it.  Furthermore, if you do make money as a gospel artists, at least be smart and invest it into a lucrative business to not only legitimately make you wealthy, but also give jobs to those in need.

You see, God does not give gospel artists a gift to sing and play an instrument, but He gave everyone a mind to be creative and become inventors and entrepreneurs.  The Hawkins Family Cafe could be the birth of many more business locations and they may take it from there.   Who knows.   All we know is The Hawkins Family Delite Cafe is something the Hawkins family possibly have been dreaming about for a long time.

In conclusion this is a recession and gospel artists should be very smart.  As it is an alleged fact, many gospel artists are not financially successful as they used to be, partly because of the recession and mainly because they are no longer singing gospel music, God's way.

Grammy Award winner hopes to cook up new hit with DeLite Cafe

Please Keep Blessing Us With Your Music, Wess Morgan


We heard this beautiful song by Wess Morgan and we were blown away.  It's called Pray, Praise, Fight an encouraging song to endure our daily trials.   This song was not the only thing that touched us, it was Wess Morgan's awesome voice, very powerful and full of the anointing.   We say, please keep on blessing us with your music, Wess Morgan.

We cannot find many African American gospel music artists or even white Christian music artists who can sing the way Wess Morgan sings and blesses us with such awesome music.   His gift is very unique in an age that barely gives us such anointing through singing songs of Zion.  We pray we hear more of this sort of anointing among those who claim to be singers for Jesus Christ and not Satan.  Will those who truly represent Jesus Christ, please stand up?  We want to hear more anointing in gospel and christian music, not idolatry and carnality.  We sincerely hope Wess Morgan does not change and allow God to keep using him to bless us.

In this song, we hear Wess Morgan expressing how we can resist the Devil, which we having been longing for in more gospel and christian music for so long.   

Listen to Wess Morgan's Song, Pray Praise, Fight

Singer Kelly Price vs New Light Church Infringement Case Dismissed, Report Say

Kelly Price Loses Case in Copyright Infringement

In 2010, we posted a report on The New Light Christian Center Church pastored by Bishop I.V. Hilliard and his wife Bridgett Hilliard  of Houston, TX allegedly used a song without permission by singer Kelly Price.

R&B/Gospel Singer Kelly Price filed a lawsuit against mega church leader Bishop I.V. Hilliard, Bridgett Hilliard and daughter Preshea Hilliard along with the New Light Christian Center Church.
Kelly Price says they were making money from her song "Women Who Win", without proper licensing and permission.

The court documents that she filed in July 2010 state that The Hilliards requested a 'synchronization license' to use the work but was rejected. Allegedly, New Light decided they were going to use the song.

Price accused them of not just singing the song at church one Sunday morning. They were accused incorporating it and monetizing from the idea and concept of the song as well.

Jennifer Knapp, Christian Singer Is Allegedly Proud To Be a Lesbian, But God is Not Happy


We do not know why this christian singer, Jennifer Knapp came out on Larry King to admit she is a lesbian, because God is not happy.  He informed us in His Word that all who turned to same sex relationships will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.  So, her coming out on national television may have deceived her to think she is so free, but Lord knows, she will get the worst shock of her life when her time is up.  Jennifer Knapp allegedly bragged about loving her girlfriend while being a child of God.   But how is this so, when the Word of God has scriptures that oppose the gay and lesbian lifestyle?   You can not be Christian and gay or even Christian and lesbian.  Certain scriptures we will show you at the end of this post.   However, this question applies to this particular subject, why weren't there enough Christians to combat Jennifer Knapp's alleged pride as a lesbian on national television?   She should not have been able to go on Larry King without being reminded of these following scriptures at the end of this article.

The most scariest thing about this situation of people come out of the closet as gay gospel artists or christian artists is that there have been actual testimonies of people who went to hell and saw souls crying out in the lake of fire, which was especially for homosexuals.   They were crying and screaming and pleading with Jesus Christ to let them out of the lake of eternal fire and damnation.   We will reveal Mary K. Baxter's testimony at the end of this post, she was one of the people who witnessed this horrific tour with Jesus Christ in hell, but before we do so, we have more to say.


We love these souls, but because they are so deceived to think they are really free to come out of the closet, we must rebuke them.  We cannot love people without forewarning them about God's wrath.   We do not care if you are a gospel artist, christian artist or just a person who claims to be saved and attend church, you must not be so naive to think Jesus will allow you to be gay and a christian.   There is no way you can do so, because sanctification means you are being completely holy and righteous without blemish.   Although, as Christians we make mistakes, we are not off the hook when we sin on purpose as though we are so proud for the world to know God will let us in His Kingdom on judgement day, no matter who we sleep with or even no matter how many people we sleep with, God's Word is not a lie.   It does matter and if God's Word forewarned us to not be attracted to the same sex and we do it anyway, we will have to give an account to God for the evil deeds we have done in our lifetime.  How dare we ever think we can bargain or negotiate with God, just because we do not call ourselves secular artists are sinners? If you are doing what secular artists or sinners do, you are going to hell and you will never get out.   So, it pays for Jennifer Knapp and whomever else to get it right before it is everlasting too late.   We do not like it when gospel artists or christian artists go on national television to make it look like God will pardon sins just because of whomever they are, it is not fair to God or even His Son, Jesus Christ.   We must not only fast and pray against this foolishness, but we must stand strong against the demonic force that deceives people through those particular souls who claim to be born again Christians, sharing the gift of music while admitting they have given themselves over to homosexuality.  The Devil is a liar and he comes to steal, kill and to destroy, but because God said in His Word He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10), we cannot allow Satan nor His demons to flaunt through Christian singers or gospel artists like Jennifer Knapp, because there are no homosexuals in God's Kingdom and no where in the Bible does it say, He will excuse gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual people.   

It is a sin to be a homosexual and these following scriptures are not just for sinners, but also those who claim to be spreading the Word of God through song like Jennifer Knapp and many other christian and gospel artists or even hypocritical souls in the pulpit whom spread the Word of God as a minister.   We say shame on the christian community for not speaking out against the demon of homosexuality in love, regarding Jennifer Knapp coming out on Larry King.  You may say, why speak out?  It's so simple, because, if Jennifer Knapp or any other christian or gospel singer miss heaven, we are not responsible, they cannot say no one forewarned them and when they have to stand before God, it will be everlasting too late.   Too late, is what Jesus Christ said to many people whom cried out in hell when Angelica Zambrano gave her testimony.

God's Holy Scriptures Against Homosexuality
  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

  •  Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 

  •  Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

  •  Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion." 
If you want, you may hear Jennifer Knapp Allegedly Coming Out As a Lesbian on Larry King, but please beware, God is not pleased when you listen to Mary K. Baxter's Testimony About Her Previous Tour to Hell with Jesus Christ.

Le'Andria Johnson's Label Mate Amber Bullock Releases New Album


Amber Bullock New Album
We have here yet another artist who has signed to Matthew Knowles' Music World label. We are are really afraid to see how this artist may turn out knowing how Le'Andria Johnson seemed to allow the label to manipulate her into singing love songs and not gospel songs. Though Amber Bullock has a jazzy sound to her work, that alone opens up doors for secular vibes to come right on in. Don't get us wrong, people can sing what they want but leave the world's music out of the church- that's the issue.
Here's the report on her new album:
Amber Bullock stole the hearts of this season’s record breaking “Sunday Best” audience and she’s about to steal the hearts of gospel music lovers everywhere with her debut Music World release, Thank You.
Like her label mate and fellow “Sunday Best” champion Le’Andria Johnson, Bullock originally just took a chance when she tried out for the show that would change her life.
Never expecting to win, Bullock blew away the competition with her jazzy-style vocals that left her highly esteemed gospel-jazz vocal coach Kim Burrell calling her a natural.
Wow! By getting praise from Kim Burrell, known for her sexy gospel/jazz style, this was a problem to start with.
Describing her experience on the show, Bullock told BREATHEcast, “It was absolutely amazing. One of the best [experiences] in my entire life.”
Signing onto Matthew Knowles’ Music World, the young singer says she is living out her dreams of being a professional musician.
Amber Bullock says she’s proud of  her new album and its something she’s sure her fans will love.

Gospel Music Celebrites Is Idolatry : Mary Mary To Launch Reality Show Does Not Surprise Us


In the eyes of God today's average gospel artists are living their lives as celebrities in nothing more than idolatry in the eyes of God.   These gospel artists, Mary Mary do not surprise us by launching their reality show.   Therefore, today's average gospel artists are seeking fame and more fortune, instead of seeking God and righteousness.   Since when do gospel artists launch a reality show, instead of separating from the world does not glorify God. Erica & Tina Campbell have been known to flaunt themselves as though they are a part of the world and not among holy children of God and if they do not repent for their greed for fame and fortune, do not be surprised of God's wrath.  God is not just tired of today's modern age church, He is also tired of gospel artists claiming to love Him, but not fully submitting to His will.  What is God's will?  To fully separate from the world.  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (I John 2:15).

Mary Mary has allegedly announce they wish to collaborate with Beyonce who is not a gospel artist and an alleged Satanist.  We also spotted Mary Mary on camera allegedly doing the Corna hand signs and wearing certain outfits that retain the symbols of Devil worship.   So, you tell us, is it okay for these two gospel artists to launch their reality show?   Absolutely not, they have not seem to be in line with God's Kingdom by allegedly showing off their connection with Satanic music artists in the world.   Therefore, the only way it would be okay is if they would completely remove themselves from the gospel music industry.  It is hypocritical to say you love God and as a gospel artists you continue to seek more fame as though you are a celebrity.   Gospel artists have no business being celebrities, because being a celebrity is a form of idolatry.   People idolize you, instead of wanting to be like God and this is not God's desires.  This upcoming reality show may seem like it is going to be exciting to their fans, but is only a demonic tool to get these souls more focused on Mary Mary and not God, not unless we see and hear them invite souls to Jesus Christ on their upcoming show and we doubt it.

God wants souls saved from the music of gospel artists whom claim they are making music for His glory, not to glorify the gospel artists.  What will be the theme of Mary Mary's reality show, all about how their music have supplemented their lavish lifestyle or to win souls for Jesus Christ?

Bishop O. C. Allen Claims Some Gospel Artists Refuse to Perform for Gay Ministries Like The Vision Church of Atlanta


When a few of our journalists decided to watch Bishop O. C. Allen gay pastor of The Vision Church of Atlanta's interview, we were all amazed when they learned there are still actually some gospel artists who refuse to perform at gay churches.   While watching the Lexi Show, we heard Bishop O. C. Allen make this claim.   Can you believe we still have completely saved gospel artists who are standing up for Jesus Christ?  This made us so proud and angels are rejoicing for them turning around when they instantly learned what sort of church Bishop O. C. Allen pastors.   The Vision Church of Atlanta is a gay affirming church, although Allen claims he does not like his church to be called a "gay" church.   Well, isn't that what it is, when you affirm homosexuality while opposing the following scriptures God's Word that does not condone it as righteousness, but only as sin?   We see The Vision Church of Atlanta as a gay church, because pure sanctified holy straight men, women and children do not want to subtract from God's Word, but we desire to hear and follow the complete Word of God.  However, Bishop O. C. Allen views his church, claiming it is for everyone, obviously everyone does not agree with his doctrine that opposes the Word of God.


We are wondering whom were these gospel artists who turned around, after learning The Vision Church was an alleged gay dominated church?   Whomever they are, we just want to congratulate them for their holy boldness for Jesus Christ Christ, because we are living in an age where there are churches on the assignment for Satan.   They think they are fulfilling their own pleasures, but our Bible lets us know their pleasures are only lust and God does not condone lust.   God wants His House pure and righteous and the gospel artists whom profess salvation should also be completely holy and not willing to bow down to those whom are not preaching the complete Word of God.  To hear gospel artists refuse to perform for The Vision Church of Atlanta was like a million dollars being given to us, because their righteousness was in the highest respect for the Lord and Jesus Christ is winning this evil race against Satan.


How can Bishop O. C. Allen expect for true born again Christians to sing for his congregation, if he is ignoring these following scriptures we are about to reveal to you?  His followers should not hear gospel music, if they follow him instead of following God.  These gospel artists are representing God's Kingdom, obviously they are not among the average entertainers who just want to sell gospel music to make a lot of money, but they are singing and performing to save souls for Jesus Christ.  Therefore, if Bishop O. C. Allen and his followers refuses to completely surrender their lives to the Lord God, then they should not expect true children of God to fellowship with them in any form or fashion.   


Thank God we still have some truly saved gospel artists and may God richly bless them for refusing to be among those who claim to know God, but do not fully obey His Word.

Although, we acknowledge God loves gays, lesbian and transgender people, His Word lets us know He does not condone their sin and we as true saints of God do not either, because we are truly His children.  If churches like Bishop O. C. Allen's ministry like The Vision Church refuse to obey these following scriptures, then they should not expect straight people whom happened to be gospel artists or church attendees whom are straight to fellowship with them.

Le'Andria Johnson: Why Is Her 'Make Him Like You" Video More About Romance


We wanted to speak on a gospel singer who has quickly made her album debut a huge success by making it secular. For those of you who know Le'Andria Johnson, you'd know she won on 'Sunday Best' gospel talent show last year and was adored for her authentic gospel sound.

Well, we are not sure if she is really doing gospel anymore because her new song, "Make Him Like You" is the equivalent to a R&B love song. It seems like she 'hooked' her gospel fans with her first single "Jesus" but now we see what's really going on. Like we wrote before, there is barely any hint of God or Jesus in the song. It is literally a love song. Don't get us wrong: love songs are for couples in the appropriate setting. No one can disagree with that.

We just saw the video that was released earlier this month and we can't say we were surprised. On the other hand, we still find it hard to believe that some gospel artists have turned secular yet want to carry the name 'gospel artist'. We say just go secular because God states in his word that He'd rather us be hot or cold and not lukewarm. (Revelations 3:15).


Now, Le'Andria Johnson's role in the video is totally contrary to what a real gospel singer should be singing. She's seen in a few seductive scenes with the video companion. But we thought this was a gospel song?

How Many Gospel Artists Could Be On Their Way To Hell And Don't Even Know It?

This is such a very important question to think about, if you are a gospel artist, gospel musician or even a gospel producer.   Our staff of journalists have listened to testimonies of people who have went on a tour to hell with Jesus Christ and one in particular is Angelica Zambrano (r. photo).   Angelica met Jesus Christ as He revealed to her certain people in eternal hell and damnation and it was not just her own grandmother.   She also saw Michael Jackson, Selena and Pope John Paul II, allegedly.   Now, you see why we ask you this very important question?   It is not to scare you, but it is to help you.  Many of today's average ministers will not preach against carnality in the gospel music industry, but we love your soul too much to allow the truth to cease.   Therefore, please take heed before it is everlasting too late.   Again, we will reveal to you Angelica's testimony at the end of this post, but first we have more to discuss with you at Repent Gospel Artists blog.   


If the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Selena and Pope John Paul II is allegedly in hell, what makes you think, God is not holding gospel artists accountable for the way they live their lives and the way they perform?   You cannot claim you are singing for Christ and you are talking, looking, acting or even singing like the world.   Jesus Christ wants to shine through your talent, but instead many of you have chosen to allow Satan to deceive souls through you by giving you fast money if you discreetly have sold your soul for fame and fortune.  You see, if you call yourself a gospel artist, you are suppose to be a messenger for Christ, not making it clear that it is okay to look and act like Beyonce or Jay-z.   It is not okay and God strictly told us in His Word to be holy and be not of this world.   If you regularly read your Bible turn to I Peter 1:16, 'Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.'  Then turn with us to another scripture in I John 2:15, it says this, 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.'  God also gives us more scriptures to discipline us as His children, but for now we are going to stop right there.  Now, if God has told us to be holy and to keep distant the ways of this world, then why are so many gospel artists looking and acting like secular music artists?   If Michael Jackson and Selena are allegedly in hell, God will be even more angry will gospel artists, because you are suppose to represent God's Kingdom at a higher standard.   You are suppose to sanctify yourselves, so the world can see Christ through you, not catering to their ways to get their money and so they will idolize you as a celebrity.   Dear sisters and brothers, this subject is very serious and if you do not believe it, when you get done reading this article, do not think Angelica's testimony does not apply to people in the gospel music industry.  When you say you are a child of God, you are not going to bow down to what this wicked world wants you to be, but you are going to bow down to Jesus Christ, regardless of how you are persecuted by those who are against you being holy.


Dear gospel artists, you must realize we care so dearly about you, but you must began to care about your own souls before it is everlasting too late.   Jesus Christ also told Angelica Zambrano He is on His way back real soon.   If you will pay more attention to the things that are taking place in our nation, you will realize she is telling the truth.  One of those facts, is simply most of you whom have supported President Obama's same sex agenda, God is against it and you know it, but yet you have ignored God's Word.   We are living in the last days, because most of you gospel artists have not been like Pastor Deitrick Haddon and his wife, Co-Pastor Damita who have opposed Obama's affirmation for homosexual marriages.  God is not pleased with you, if you are guilty and you will face judgement, if you do not repent.   Please take this very seriously, you could be on your way to hell and do not even recognize it.  You are without excuse as our Bible tell us, simply because you know it is wrong to do what you are doing while some of you may have even sold your souls to Satan.   God is not pleased and you must now repent before it is everlasting too late.   Don't you know God sees you enjoying the wealth while not really cleaning up your act or even telling those who listen to your music they need to repent?   Don't you know God sees you enjoying your fame like a celebrity and not really living as the holy saint He wants you to be?   Gospel artists, there are so many things God has not been pleased with the gospel music industry and if you have been connected for too long, He is not going to wait for you to yield and repent.   For too long, God has waited for gospel artists to stop their affairs as gays and lesbians.   For too long, God has waited for gospel artists to stop wanting fame and fortune more than Him and judgement is on its way.  Again, what allegedly applied to Selena and Michael Jackson, will certainly apply to you much worse, because you know better.  You know God's Word, but you would rather follow others, instead of leading them into righteousness.  Each and ever last one of you gospel artists know God forbids you to collaborate with secular artists, but many of you have took the satanic oath and God is angry.  Repent and completely turn around before it is everlasting too late saith the Lord.  


Now, you maybe deceived by Mr. Bobby Jones, Karen Clark Sheard and her sisters, Kirk Franklin and many others who have been a part of the gospel music industry for a very long time, but they do not have the key to heaven and hell, only Jesus Christ does.  Therefore, you must no longer listen to them, you must listen and follow Jesus Christ before you lose your soul to Satan and His demons.

Can The Black Church Stop The Curse of The Gospel Music Industry's Alleged Connection With The Satanic Illuminati?


Now that the black church has yielded to the worldly ways of secularized gospel music, the anointing has ceased most of their ministries, completely.  Therefore, the pastors who are over these churches are not blessed to rebuke the curse of the gospel music industry's alleged connection with the Satanic Illuminati.   God can only remove it, if each and every gospel artist, gospel producer and gospel promoter repents for their collaboration with secular artists who have allegedly sold their souls to the Devil.   God wants each and every lost soul to surrender to Him and cease their wickedness. Many of the gospel artists of today are bound by Satanic influences, because they have chosen to idolize the gospel music industry, instead of completely surrendering to God.   Overall, the black church has no power to rebuke the curse of alleged Satanism, because the black church has also allegedly idolized these gospel artists who are not holy.  How could this be?  Simply, because the average pastor does not preach holiness and righteousness, they have taught false doctrine that makes it okay to bargain with God.

Gospel artists are in more trouble with God than they have ever been and it is such a shame most black churches fail to see it.   Pastors who allegedly use these gospel artists to attract the youth to their ministries have not preached deliverance, but mostly preached false doctrine.   The black church is in just as much trouble with God as these gospel artists, because Jesus Christ has been used as though he is a product as Bishop T. D. Jakes allegedly claimed it was so.   Let us assure you, Jesus Christ is not to be sold not through music and not through His Word, but Jesus Christ gives salvation for free.   However, the false doctrine has been preached otherwise and therefore, the curse that has dominated the alleged evil connection of the gospel music industry with Satanism will deceive many souls into thinking they are okay with God.   Because the pastor of black churches refuse to preach righteousness, God has turned many of them over to a reprobated minds and many who attend these ministries do not even know they are also in danger.

There has been alleged reports of gospel artists who are connected to the Satanic Illuminati.   It is shown through their attire.  Now, this is why we say it does matter what a saint wears, because these particular gospel artists regularly wear certain colors to represent their connection as a discreet Devil worshiper.   Many of them wear red and black with satanic symbols that represent their love for Satan.  Yet most black churches invite these artists to their churches to supposedly win the young folks, but they have no knowledge of such deception.   Today's modern age preachers preach it does not matter what you wear while not acknowledging we are living in an age where gospel artists are wearing certain clothes that reveal certain codes of their connection to satanism.   God is not pleased with the ignorance in the black church and He wants these ministers to stop collaborating with other ministers who refuse to be aware of such satanic practices in gospel music, which no longer belongs in the church.   Secondly, these gospel artists are upholding the baphomet sign, which is the corna hand signal, which is not saying "I love you" according the the late Anton Lavey, the founder of the church of Satan.   Whenever you see a gospel artist uphold a sign that is similar to the above photo, it is indeed alleged satanism and it does not belong in God's music.   Also, there are other satanic hand signs these gospel artists are doing while following everything their friends are doing in the secular industry.   Thirdly, these gospel artists are getting so bold, they do not think it is necessary to be different than the world, these are hypocrites, they are not in the gospel music industry to spread the message of Jesus Christ, but out to deceive souls for Satan.  These gospel artists have verbally claimed you do not need to be holy to be saved and that is false doctrine.   The Bible told us this, "Be Ye holy for I am holy (I Peter 1:16)."  The average black church is so lost, they sell these particular gospel artists' music in their bookstores and will even allow them to have concerts at their churches.   These are the three main reasons why the black church is not capable to remove the curse from the gospel music industry's alleged connection with the Satanic Illuminati, it is so clear and simple, they have no anointing to acknowledge what is going on, is pure evil in the eyes of God.

The average pastor wants to be liked and accepted, not an outcast for standing up for pure holiness.   They do not want to experience persecution by the church, because they have been fooled into believing they are not loving people, if they do not accept their sinful behaviors.   Many black churches who are deceived into believing the average gospel artist belongs to Jesus Christ are spiritually blind and are bound by a curse themselves.  These pastors teach as motivational speakers, but they are not anointed to preach as true messengers of Jesus Christ.  They are just as deceived as gay affirming ministers who preach the false doctrine against God's Word.

Is Christian Rapper Lecrae Throwing Up Illuminati Hand Signs [VIDEO]


We have are reservations when it comes to Christian rappers because we have always stood on the principle that it is worldly and should not be in the church. Well, we were alerted about a video of Christian rapper Lecrae and it has pointed out the rapper allegedly wearing occult like apparel, flashing Illuminati hand signs several times from several clips and more. Quite frankly, it appears to be pretty convincing.

We didn't create the video report so no hate mail to us guys.

If it is true, it goes to show that even Christian rappers are dabbling in the occult to obtain fame and fortune.

Jesus Weeps: Bishop Lester Love Has NIghtclub in Church and Sings Secular Love Songs


Bishop Lester Love
We came across some videos of a well known bishop of New Orleans named Bishop Lester Love of City of Love Ministries. He has apparently used his last name, "Love" as a branding strategy allegedly to make a name for himself. 

With his 'City of Love' church and the remaking secular loves songs, his brand is very clear as a business and promotional model. He's apparently popular for singing secular songs to describe how he feels about God or Jesus, he says. This branding is surely bringing in a lot of money from disillusioned
sleep
walkers church members. As far as we can see, he has not only tried to take secular songs and put a gospel spin on it but, in our opinion, he's making an absolute idiot of himself.

Though people have been turning secular songs into gospels songs for years now, it only shows their love and desire to be accepted by the world and ultimately the image of the world. The church seems to be open to accepting just about anyone who says they are a man of God and can hold a tune (maybe). This, ladies and gentlemen- is the result of such respecter of persons many have become.
To read the entire article and see the videos of nightclub at his church as well as him sing 'secular love songs to Jesus', go HERE.

Mary Mary Illuminati Allegedly Exposed At Black Girls Rock! [Pics and VIDEO]

Mary Mary's Erica Campbell Allegedly flashes the Corna Hand signMary Mary Illuminati Allegedly Exposed At Black Girls Rock!

We wanted to thank one of our readers, S.D. for revealing the alleged Illuminati hands signs by gospel sister duo, Mary Mary. We reviewed the video of their performance at the 2011 Black Girls Rock! event from last week and its appears to be clear what sister Erica Campbell is doing. It actually looks pretty blatant how she allegedly flashes the hidden coven 6 hand sign several times along with the Corna hand sign. She allegedly flashes the "6" sign so many times, we couldn't keep up. If this is true, it goes to prove the many reports that gospel artists are seeking more fame and fortune and will even abandon any sense of the God they supposedly serve for Satan's kingdom.

Fred Hammond to Release Love Songs Album (Not For the Gospel Audience)

Singer Fred Hammond's Upcoming Love Song Album Inspired By Book of Song of Solomon
The new 'love song' album from Fred Hammond will release soon for those Christians that think its alright to mix gospel music and love songs together. We know that some Christians have no problem with this because we are beginning to hear those who make 'gospel and love song' mix tapes? What? Yes, this is where we are.
God, Love and Romance, slated to release Jan. 31, gives an honest perspective on love and marriage. Hammond says more Christians should explore this topic when singing, preaching or teaching. 
"One of the things that I scratch my head over is why do we go to Psalms and Proverbs, skip over [Song of Solomon], and go to Ecclesiastes?" he said in a YouTube interview. "We act like it doesn't exist, but God thought it was important enough to say it."

Black Churches and Seminaries Believe They Must Embrace Christian Hip Hop


Bishop Eddie Long and Hip Hop in Church
We are always flabbergasted by this mentality that Christian Hip Hop, Rap, etc., is becoming the norm in America's churches, especially the black church. We can't see how hip hop and rap in the church will bring young people to Christ. They may be introduced to Him but to seriously live by the bible and live righteously as He intended, we're not seeing this. Many may not agree but bringing something 'from the world' into the church and intending to make it 'godly' does not work. Sorry we have to use this analogy but if being a Christian gay is wrong, then how is Christian rap/hip hop right? Again, this is trying to make a wrong right when the wrong must be rebuked and repented and the embracing of a new godly being is the only true way to God.
We know many people just don't understand why hip hop should not have a place in the church but while the church has invited other things in, this is just another invitation to Satan. "Come on in, Lucifer. Have a seat and take over" is essentially the concept. The church has embraced so much of the outside world for many, many reasons (mainly for money) that has nothing to do with God and we are continually looking to imitate the world when God never said to do so. In fact, we are suppose to 'show a difference' not conform to these new age philosophies.
Read recent report:
"If we're going to take young people seriously, we have no choice," said Alton B. Pollard III, dean of the Howard University School of Divinity.
Howard University recently had their annual convocation featured the rocking beat of Christian hip-hop artists Da' T.R.U.T.H. and Sean Simmonds, and professors are using spoken word -- poetry performed as social commentary -- to examine the New Testament.

Youtuber Says Gospel Singer Vickie Winans Should Repent

Vickie Winans

The owner of the Youtube video who allegedly exposed Vickie Winans has addressed her and told her to repent. On the Youtube page with video, Vickie Winans Exposed ( Hidden Coven 6), she states she is very sorry for living up to their standards. In fact she also states she has tried to please people all of her life and asks for forgiveness.

It struck us odd that she would really go on with this person but she appears to want to address it though she never addressed the specifics recognized in her alleged behavior in the video. She only spoke against it and threatened to sue.

We don't know if she knew what she was doing or not, but she surely has been influenced by the crowd she deals with in her songs and many of them have been producing her music and videos in the recent years.

We want to continue to pray for Vickie Winans and others who are allegedly losing touch with what gospel really means and how it is to remain authentic and sacred.
NOTE: We want to make it clear that this is not a fake Vickie Winans responding because the comments are coming from her official Youtube account.

What Is It Going to Take To Reverse Gospel Music Back To Holiness?

There is a demonic root in the history of gospel music, allegedly.  You may not want to accept the truth, but when you trace the historical lives of specific gospel artists who accepted Satan's invitation to indulge in lustful acts, which mostly involved homosexuality, you have got to admit there is definitely a demonic root.   For example, the King of Gospel, Rev. James Cleveland will always be known as the genius of gospel music, but-he also will always be known for allegedly allowing lust to control his personal life.   However, we just want to say, people can always repent and God will forgive them, no matter what life they lived here on earth.  We just wish the history of gospel music was not tainted with the demon of homosexuality.  The question is this, is there a way to reverse gospel music back to holiness?  This means people who are gospel music artists are converted to living a complete holy lifestyle and presenting themselves as holy messengers for Jesus Christ.

We think there is a way to do it, however, it takes the people of God to agree they no longer desire to be haunted with the demon of homosexuality while supporting gospel artists and their music.  If the black church refuses to fast and pray about this situation that has been an ancient problem, then God cannot solve it.   He will only do what we request or when we desire for something to change for the good of us who love the Lord, it will most definitely change.   However, their has been too many people who like it just the way it is.  Many adore gay men and their dainty ways, so God cannot change anything, the stigma will always be known when gospel music is mentioned.   If you are saved, you should not want to think about anything that is impure while listening to good gospel music.  Right? 


Here is an important question, do you think there was a time when holiness was among gospel music artists?   Were they ever holy?  Because if not, no wonder we have such a demonic force that has dominated the entire industry, not only with homosexuality, but hip hop gospel and christian rock.   God said in His Word to be holy in I Peter 1:16, 'Be Ye Holy for I am Holy.  Therefore, gospel music artists within the industry must be holy and willing to not see themselves as entertainers, but only presenting their music for the Lord, decently and in order.  I Corinthians 14:40 instructs this to God's children, "Let all things be done decently and in order."  So, if they are completely holy, then they will strive to turn to pure holiness not only in creating gospel music, but in their personal lives, which includes the company they keep.   There has to be enough people in the church to change gospel music, even without the gospel music artists themselves.   The foundation of gospel music has always been the church, so if the church has no form of holiness and righteousness, then gospel music artists will be misled by those who promote them.   They must be enforced to make a decision to choose whom they will serve, not just how sing, but how they live.   God expects holiness to be on the minds of those who listen to gospel music.   If the black church who supports these gospel artists are not focused on God each second they listened to their gospel songs, then there is no reason for it.   So, it is very simple and not difficult to find a way to make it holy and pleasing to God.   


There has to be a strong desire for God and less desire for fame and fortune.   You may say how will they live without having a career?   Money will come the right way on God's terms, but now they are making money the quick and easy way on the world's terms, God cannot accept or be happy with it.


To answer the question were gospel music artists ever holy?   We cannot answer that question, but what we do know is during the time of slavery, there were Spirituals, when our people were taught to be holy and honor God.  There was no desire for fame or fortune, the favorite prayer of our ancestors was "Lord, deliver us from the hands of our slave masters."   So, you see they were humble enough to cry out to the Lord, because they were being beaten and facing to be lynched on a daily basis.   Now that our race has been free, it seems as though God has been forgotten about among those who claim to know Him within the black church and as gospel music artists.   It seems since there is no need to cry out to God to save us from our ancestor's former enemy, the white supremacists, they freely expect to live and act like the world and be idolized as celebrities.   We feel God is very angry because of it.   Spirituals were possibly the only time when those who sang them were spiritual and did not possess a demonic spirit of carnality.   Gospel music possibly was never holy and possibly this is why it may never be able to be reversed to holiness through the artists, but it can be changed among only those who are truly seeking God.

Living holy will indeed change gospel music to the way God expects it to be, but it cannot not be controlled by secular producers any longer, because the anointing is only controlled by the Kingdom of God and that has not been heard in years.  What we have now is Satan who is glad gospel music artists is doing it the world's way and not God's way.     The way the world enjoys music does not give any glory and honor to God, it only pacifies them not to change and totally surrender their lives to God. If living holy is not enforced in the black church, then gospel artists will not feel it is necessary to be holy or to even present themselves as righteous believers.

Le'Andria Johnson and Bishop Lester Love: Video Proves Gospel Music Including Romance In Gospel Music Is Wrong

A good Christian man by the name of Bro. Ken has broadcasted his thoughts on today's Worship music in the church and this includes gospel music.   We have told you it was wrong for Le'Andria Johnson, BeBe and Cee Cee, Mary Mary or whomever is guilty of including such words similar to 'Baby Baby' is sacrilegious, this means it is disrespectful to God and does not belong in His music.   We thank Bro. Ken for shedding a little light on the exact reason why we should not allegedly support gospel artists or even condone their gospel songs that does not glorify God.   We discovered this video while one of our journalists was doing research on how many gospel artists have allegedly sold their souls to the Devil for fame and fortune.   Specifically, Le'Andria Johnson has just allegedly came out with a song produced by Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, which sounds like a love song written for a man, other than Jesus Christ.   Tell us, how can any of these gospel artists today claim to be a witness for Christ and sing, 'Baby Baby' as though they are in the world.   The Bible told us we are not of this world, it says this: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (I John 2: 15)".  Read this article at AToast2Wealth.com, which will reveal to you how far, LeAndria Johnson has allegedly gone into turning gospel music into mainstream.

Let us be very clear with you, God is not playing with any of us.   No matter what we do in our lifetime, He gave us a forewarning, we must completely separate from this world.  A lot of the songs now produced and composed in gospel music are allegedly blasphemy, because they have been allegedly assigned by Satan and his demons.  This is why hip hop gospel has dominated gospel music and now, Beyonce's father Matthew Knowles wants to remove the name gospel from the industry.   Yes, why call it gospel, but it is a shame he is going this far.  Let us tell you about another hypocrite who has sang love songs, even while he preaches, Bishop Lester Love who has not only offended true Christians, but most of all, God Almighty.   That's right Bishop Lester Love has took love songs from the world and sings them before preaching his sermons.   Look forward to an upcoming article, revealing to you about this false prophet, Bishop Lester Love who thinks he can just freely sing love songs of the world before and even during his sermons in the House of God.  Our journalist of AToast2Wealth.com are going to give you some frightening details about this man who has disrespected the Kingdom of God, but for now, just watch this video of why we should no longer support these hypocritical gospel artists who have given God's music over into Satan's dominion.

Satanic Music in Christian Worship Services? FOR CHRISTIANS ONLY

This is The Only Dancing God Understands, Gospel Artists Mary Mary

On a previous televised interview with Mary Mary and Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary: Erica Atkins-Campbell and Tina Atkins-Campbell made the excuse of gospel artists and those in the church who idolize should have a right to perform, sing and dance like the world, when they allegedly said, " David danced".   Really?   David was not doing the sort of dancing Mary Mary was referring to.   The sort of dancing David did was giving full glory to God not doing any sort of secular dancing like the world.   Let us assure you that all of this dancing that has been made okay by the black church is pure blasphemy and sacrilegious.  Who do Mary Mary think they are to lie on King David as though he danced in a secular fashion.   Let us remind Mary Mary and the ministers of the black church who have not rebuked them, the only dancing God understands is dancing under the anointing and power of God.

The ministers of the gospel who have not publicly rebuked Mary Mary for not living up to the standard of pure holiness will have to stand before God.  You may say why public?   Simply because it is time for the church to get serious with God and stop listening to music like Mary Mary.   Mary Mary was on television lying on King David as though his dancing was secular, allegedly.   Get some sense, when King David danced it was to give full glory and honor to God, it was not similar to the way the children of Satan dance for him.   It is time for ministers of God's Word to start preaching against hip hop gospel artists who have violated God's music, speaking lies that have not been confirmed by God.   So Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Canton Jones, Vickie Winans, Shirley Caesar or whomever have been claiming this lie, this is the only dancing God understands.   For if your dancing is not under the full anointing of our most high God, it is not acceptable and should never be accepted within the body of Christ.

The black church has gotten so far away from praising ans worshiping God in a serious fashion, they have allowed hypocritical gospel artists like Mary Mary to dominate the way God expects us to praise Him and we cannot and will not stand for it, anymore. God's praise was never intended for entertainment purposes compared for being in a night club.

Mary Mary has not only defiled God's music, but they have also defiled God's praise and His praise in the church and even in gospel music has never been compared to how Satan receives his praises.

How Gay The Sound By Pastor Kevin Shell

How Sweet The Sound Judges

Also, first published at our parent site AT2W in cooperation with its author.

We want to thank Pastor Kevin Shell for his wisdom and consistent word from God. We are going to let Pastor Kevin Shell tell you all about what happened here and we will try and contain ourselves in the midst!

Eurweb reported the group among the other winners:
Regional choirs from across the country were on hand to win up to $50,000. Grammy award winning artists CeCe Winans and Donald Lawrence served as mistress and master of ceremonies while award winners Marvin Sapp, Shirley Caesar and Israel Houghton served as judges for the competition.
Verizon traveled to nine cities to hold competitions for church choirs and the winning choirs from nine cities were then flown to Los Angeles to compete in the national finals.
The regional finalists were; Dallas: St. John Church Ministry (Grand Prarie, Texas) Atlanta: All Nations Life and Praise Church Choir (Stockbridge, Ga.) Charlotte, N. C.: Salvation and Deliverance Church Choir (Tarboro, N.C.) Washington, D. C.: James E. Jordan, Jr. Adult Choir of Refreshing Spring COGIC (Riverdale, Md.) Detroit: The Anointed Voices of Higher Ground Young Adult Choir (Columbus,Ohio) St. Louis: Metropolitan Community Church of Greater Saint Louis (St. Louis, Mo.) Chicago: All Nations Choir of the Lighthouse Church of All Nations (Alsip, Ill.) Los Angeles: Family Life Sanctuary Choir (Whittier,Calif.) Oakland, Calif.: Christian Life Center Mass Choir (Stockton,Calif.)

  • “We’re looking for tone, pitch, the ability to blend and soulful voices,” said Sapp. “Great choirs have the ability to articulate songs with conviction.”
  • Note the judges Sapp, Caesar and Houghton who are spiritual deaf, dumb and blind. And let’s not forget they are being paid to be spiritually deaf, dumb and blind. The Metropolitan Community Church is one of the most vilest caricatures of Christianity that exists today. Its members and leaders promote and participate in doctrines and practices that resemble what you would find at the bottom of an outhouse.
Unfortunately the gospel music industry and its talking heads (or singing heads) are just as vile and disgusting for reinstating Satan in a position that was violently stripped from him by God (see Ezekiel 28:11-19).
FROM PASTOR KEVIN SHELL
I KNOW THIS IS TOUGH FOR SOME TO SEE AND HEAR. YOU HAVE THEIR CD'S, YOU KNOW SOME OF THEIR SONGS BY HEART. YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, HOW COULD THEY BE WRONG? THEY HAVE SUCH A HUGE FOLLOWING! AS MATTER OF FACT,  YOU JUST SAW THEM ON TBN FOR CHRIST SAKE! THIS S A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF WHAT  I SAID IN MY NOTE "ONE WORLD MUSIC". HERE WE HAVE A CORPORATION LIKE VERIZON MANIPULATING AND CONTROLLING THE IMAGE AND SOUND OF GOSPEL MUSIC. DON'T BE DECEIVED BY THE CELEBRITIES ATTACHED TO THIS PERVERSION. THEY ARE ONLY BEING USED AS A SMOKESCREEN TO ENTICE THOSE THAT ARE GULLIBLE AND UNDISCERNING. DON'T BE SURPRISED THAT MANY OTHER GOSPEL ELITE WILL COME IN THE FUTURE AND PLAY MUSICAL CHAIRS WITH SAPP, HOUGHTON & CAESAR TO GET PAID BY VERIZON AND OTHERS, WHO ARE UNDER THE SPELL OF THIS WORLD....REMEMBER JUST BECAUSE THE WORLD STAMPS JESUS ON SOMETHING, DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE TO FOLLOW IT.
(ONE WORLD MUSIC NOTE)
PER THE VERIZON WEBSITE WHICH I'VE COPIED AND PASTED. Verizon Corporate Services Group Inc., HAVE RULES THAT STATE....b.The Choir must have a meaningful and consistent relationship with a church, temple, mosque or other similar religious organization (the “Religious Organization”).  The Religious Organization must have a valid tax identification number, must be a tax-exempt organization as described under sections 501(c)(3) and 170(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended from time to time, and must have received an exemption letter from the Internal Revenue Service confirming its tax exempt status.  The Choir must provide the Religious Organization’s valid tax identification number as part of the registration process, and the Choir, at Verizon’s request, shall submit additional documentation satisfactory to Verizon in its sole discretion confirming the tax-exempt status of the Religious Organization; SO BASICALLY AS LONG AS THE SINGING GROUP HAS A 501(C)(3)....THEY'RE IN! THE RULES STATE ANY CHURCH, TEMPLE OR MOSQUE!!! SO MAYBE NEXT YEAR THE CHURCH OF SATAN WILL WIN! OH I FORGOT ANOTHER HOMOSEXUAL CHOIR WON LAST YEAR TOO.
 FOR THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW, GOD'S MUSIC IS STILL SACRED
1. Singers should sing unto the Lord, and should praise Him in the beauty of holiness (2 Chronicles 20:21). They should be separated from the world unto God. Both singers and musicians should have an inward disposition of reverence and purity, and resists all that offends the holy nature of God (1 Chronicles 16:29).
2. Gospel songs should be unto the Lord, and not for entertainment purposes to entertain the flesh and people (1 Chronicles 25:7). Songs that are sung should glorify God.
3.  True minstrels/musicians help set spiritual atmosphere for the supernatural which does not include thrill seeking song that appeal to the flesh (2 Kings 3:15).
4. Singing and the use of musical instruments being sung and played unto the Lord should be used for spiritual warfare (2 Chronicles 20:20-24; 1 Samuel 16:23).
5. The church should only accept  songs and music which are —like scripture— inspired by the  Holy Spirit ( Ephesians 5:19 ; 1 Chronicles 25:1-6).
6.  A difference between holy and unholy should always be the standard in music. Gospel music artist who claim to love God, should not partner with those who promote ungodliness, sexual immorality and use gratuitous profanity. (1 John 2:15-16 ; 2 Chronicles 19:2).
7.  The cult of celebrity should be destroyed as quickly as possible at its roots. True singers and musicians of God reflect Jesus and serve people, instead of  demanding service and accolades. (Mark 10:45).
8. Use singing and music to lead people into true sacrifice unto the Lord( Hebrews 13:15).
By Pastor Kevin Shell


By the way, here's Marvin Sapp's response to a question posed if he knew the choir that won was a gay:
Let me say that I usually don't respond to these types of post however we (the judges) had no clue about this church or any other church in the national competition and as judges that info isnt released to any of us by the sponsor Verizon. The judging process is based on accumulative scoring so it's not based on any one person alone. Our responsibilities is to score based on talent and presentation and thats all we do and that night they were the best choir. The goal of the competition is to advance Gospel and the Gospel music and not agenda.... God Bless  [Source]
