DOWNLOAD MUSIC: Yonette Odessa (Y.O.) - Alright || Free Download

 Here comes a brand new music that speaks from one of South America Gospel Artist Yonette Odessa, Titled: Alright.

Yonette Odessa Hall-Williams with the stage name is Y.O is a Christian singer, songwriter and recording artist. Born in Guyana, South America, She migrated to the U.S.A. with her parents and siblings when she was 14 years old. 

My gift of singing was discovered and nurtured by my mother, with whom my siblings and I spent countless hours rehearsing. Ah, those were some of the most amusing times of my life as a kid! At some point in almost every rehearsal someone would get upset and the rehearsal would come to an abrupt end. I was always forgetting the correct lyrics for the songs and would substitute my own words. I guess I was displaying early evidence of the gift of song writing. From a very young age my mom had my siblings and I singing in church and at various events in our community. I have grown much since then (vocally & in my ability to recall the correct lyrics :)), and for the past several years I have been diligently working on my solo career. In the process, I have collaborated with other musicians and singers such as Sir Hall, Redeem, Davidic Praise and Richie Righteous - She Said.

Gospel Singer Travis Greene Received 'More Support Than Backlash' For Performing at Trump’s Inaugural Ball || Watch Performance

Over the weekend, GRAMMY® Award-nominated gospel singer Travis Greene accepted the controversial invitation to be the opening act at President Donald Trump’s Liberty Ball.

For those who thought he would feel the wrath of the anti-Trump nation, he says, “Honestly, there’s been a lot more support than backlash.”

The “Intentional” singer shared his experience Monday during a phone interview with Erica Campbell on her nationally syndicated radio program, Get Up! Mornings.

Though some did disagree with the 33-year-old singer’s decision to go, Greene said, “I think a lot of them are just upset over social issues.”

He also asserted that critics would have a different viewpoint if they read and understood Scripture. “It’s very hard to read the Bible and not be convicted to be involved in culture rather than just to complain about it,” said the chart-topping musician.

Rooting his perspective in biblical wisdom, Greene explained, “Acts 17 talked about how Paul and his boys flipped the world upside down”—something that doesn’t “happen by staying in the comfort of our four walls of our church, and just praying for things to happen,” but rather, by “engaging in culture.”

Although the pastor of Forward City Church in Columbia, SC now seems confident in his decision to sing at the huge political affair alongside R&B songstress Chrisette Michele, Greene told Campbell his initial inclination was to decline the invitation.

“My first response was no I’m not going to do it because of fear of man, but once I put prayer behind that, it just didn’t hold up very strongly. It was an absolute carnal response to what I believe was a spiritual door,” he said.

Once there, the young pastor who estimated he was “one of about ten black folks” in a crowd of thousands, noted that the great majority of people in attendance were Christians who appreciated him showing up.

“People were running up to me and really thanking me for coming,” Greene said. “I think one of the reasons, among many, that God had me do it, was because I think it was a great bridge and representation for the urban community, and the church at large.”

The gifted producer and songwriter who was named Billboard’s most played gospel artist of 2016, said, “As a church, we’re way too quiet and when we do voice our opinion, it’s about the wrong thing”—which he is out to change.
The international minister is on a personal mission to cultivate a different mentality in supporters as well as members of his local assembly. He’s training action-oriented leaders.

“One thing I teach at Forward City Church in Columbia, SC is that there are only three responses you can have to culture,” Greene said. “You can tolerate and just accept whatever it is; you can complain about it, which, we as a church are professionals at doing; or you can engage in culture and help to redefine it, and that’s what I believe one of my many roles are with culture.”

Sick Kirk Franklin Posts Online Tribute To His ‘Queen’ Tammy Franklin On Their 21st Wedding Anniversary

Things may not have gone as planned this year, but that’s not stopping gospel singer Kirk Franklin from honoring his wife Tammy on the occasion of the couple’s 21st wedding anniversary.

The “Wanna Be Happy?” songwriter, who was unable to take his “queen” out for a date this year due to illness, posted a sweet and cheeky online tribute to the missus.

“So I'm at home sick today and it's my 21st anniversary!” wrote Franklin, 46, on Instagram on Jan. 20. “I wanted to take this fine sexy thang out and spoil her for riding with me, pushing me, and loving me until I healed. I'm in my PJ's with my breath stinky and she's right next to me like she's always been.”

The multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner, who lavishly celebrated his spouse’s birthday back in December by gifting her with a party, designer fashions, flowers, a private massage and more, vowed a proper celebration once he gets better.

“Happy Anniversary my queen. I'll make it up to you I promise. The world is yours,” he said, cheekily and playfully adding, “And that bump on your lower section is mine!”

Clearly he appreciates everything about his helpmeet, including her, ahem, physical attributes.

The CEO of Fo Yo Soul Recordings never misses an opportunity to let it be known how loyal, wonderful and long-suffering Mrs. Franklin has been throughout their relationship.

In a very personal 2015 blog post, the proud husband who just released a lyric video for his latest single "My World Needs You," got honest about his own shortcomings, while praising his soulmate for standing by him.

“She knew I was crazy, and she was my medication. She calmed me. She made the noise quiet. And she didn’t beat me up for what I wasn’t,” he noted, including when he battled pornography addiction.

In 2006, during an appearance on Oprah, the prolific musician spoke openly about his previous struggle with porn, which he first viewed at age 8. Franklin was gripped by it for nearly 22 years, styling it as “a drug” calling out to him.

“I was selfish. So selfish," he said about his prolonged season of indulging his fleshly desires and dishonoring their sacred union. "I’m so grateful God canceled my stupidity."

These days, one of gospel's most recognizable and enduring couples have moved on from that, and are happy, strong, and looking forward to the rest of their lives together.

“I want to be married forever," Franklin declared in his Patheos post. "I never want to embarrass my wife by ever cheating and breaking her trust.”




Gospel Recording Artist 'Deon Kipping' is Thankful For Support And Prayers During ‘Super Hard’ Cancer Fight

 Gospel recording artist Deon Kipping, who announced last week that he has been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, took to Facebook Live to thank everyone for their prayers and support.

In the video message, the “What’s Coming Is Better” songwriter also expressed gratitude for the benefit concert his big-name industry friends are organizing on his behalf.

“This week I completed my first week of chemo and radiation, and it’s been a very hard week,” said the musician whose free “A Night of Love” event is taking place March 7, 2017 at 7 p.m. at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Connecticut.

What the 37-year-old describes as an “unbelievable” ministry lineup of heavy-hitters includes: William Murphy, Tasha Cobbs, JJ Hairston, Jonathan Nelson, Isaac Carree, Jason Nelson, Vashawn Mitchell, Gerald and Tammi Haddon, Zacardi Cortez and James Fortune.

According to Kipping, more people beyond those publicly mentioned, will be attending as well.

“I’ve been reading your messages. I’ve been seeing you guys pray for me. All my friends that have hit me that I haven’t been able to respond to, I promise you I’m going through every message and I’m trying to respond to them as much as I can. It’s just overwhelming,” he said in the video which, at the time of publishing this piece, has been viewed more than 35,000 times.

“I appreciate everybody that’s taken the time to call me,” said the Connecticut native, adding, “I don’t take any of this for granted.”

Kipping began generating buzz when he wrote and recorded “Praise Him in Advance,” which is heard on Marvin Sapp’s 2007 album, Thirsty, earning the cancer-fighting worshiper his first ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award.

Since that time, his reputation for high-quality, moving anthems has grown his fan base, and solidified what he calls “lifelong friendships” with gospel’s elite.

“I don’t think that I would be able to make it through all of this without you guys,” Kipping told his social media followers, admitting that treatment has been “super hard” and exhausting.

Nevertheless, the singer is remaining optimistic, saying, “I do believe that I’m gonna beat this. God is gonna heal my body.”

The faith-filled Christian who is determined to fight for his wholeness so he can continue to raise his young son said,  “Please continue to pray. I’ve got weeks and weeks of this chemo, and radiation [and] all the other things I’m doing to beat this," he said.

According to Kipping's recent Instagram update, he has five more weeks of treatment left.



Pope’s Message As Donald Trump Takes Office

Pope Francis has urged the new American President Donald Trump to remember “the poor, the outcast and those in need” during his time in office.

The pontiff also extended his “cordial good wishes” to Donald Trump, assuring him of his prayers moving forward. 

He said he’d be praying that God would give him wisdom and strength in his role as President.

In a statement, Pope Francis said: “At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding far-sighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide.

“Under your leadership, may America’s stature continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need who, like Lazarus, stand before our door.

“With these sentiments, I ask the Lord to grant you and your family, and all the beloved American people, his blessings of peace, concord and every material and spiritual prosperity.”

The remarks come after Pope Francis publicly questioned whether Donald Trump was a Christian – a question also asked by others – when he originally proposed building a wall along the US-Mexico border.

The pontiff said in 2016: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”.

Donald Trump replied at the time on Facebook: “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President.

Gospel Singer CeCe Winans Finds True Happiness As A Pastor

CeCe Winans hasn’t released a new album in nine years, but the gospel singer is in the midst of one of the most prolific periods of her life.

Her work during this time has been different. It’s not reflected in sales (though she’s sold more than 5 million albums over the past 30 years) or awards (10 Grammys, 20 Doves and three NAACP Image Awards to date).

Instead, it’s witnessed in the people who fill the pews for Sunday service at Nashville Life Christian Church. 

Winans co-founded the church five years ago with her husband, Alvin Love, and both serve as senior pastors.
“I’m so much richer because of it,” she says. “It has required my husband and I to lay down our lives even more for people. 

I think we’ve tapped into true happiness. It’s a lot of work, but it’s the best way you could ever spend your life.”

It’s with this perspective that Winans, at last, is returning with a new album. On Feb. 3, she’ll release “Let Them Fall in Love,” a retro-styled collection that draws on the R&B and Motown sounds of the ‘60s. Ironically, it’s produced by a child of the ’80s: Winans’ son, Alvin Love III.

Winans says she took some convincing to do a “throwback” album, and she laughs as she recalls working with her son in the producer’s chair. “It was weird for me to say, ‘OK, I really have to do everything he tells me to do,’ as the mom.”

But one element of the album was at her insistence: its title, “Let Them Fall in Love.”

“I want people to hear these songs, and I want them to connect with falling in love with (God). I am totally convinced that when we receive God’s love, and we learn to love him back, that’s when we will really learn how to love one another.”

Winans famously hails from Detroit — and a gospel music dynasty. There are her parents, Delores and David (“Mom and Pop”), and nine musical siblings, including her brother and longtime duo partner BeBe.

But Nashville has been home since 1989. She and BeBe first came to town to work with their producer, Keith Thomas, and “fell in love” with the area.

Music City kept her grounded as her star continued to rise: She went platinum with her 1995 solo debut, “Alone in his Presence.” The next year, she and her friend Whitney Houston had a top 10 hit with the duet “Count On Me.”

 Over the next decade, a fruitful solo career unfolded, as well as a celebrated reunion with her brother for the 2009 album “Still.”
About five years ago, however, Winans and her husband had a “for sale” sign in front of their Nashville home.

“We were moving to California. We just wanted to be in warm weather for the rest of our lives,” she recalls. “But God works in mysterious ways.”.

The couple had been encouraged to become pastors many times over the years, but that path didn’t unfold until their son asked them to host a Bible study for his friends at their house. 

It eventually ballooned into an 80-person gathering. 

Today, Winans estimates there are about 250 members of their congregation, and they meet twice a week for worship at Christ Church in Nashville.


Billy Graham Warns Against Crossing Sexual Boundaries Set by God

Sexual activity outside of marriage is against God's plan, and disobedience may result in negative consequences, says evangelist Billy Graham.

In his syndicated advice column published Wednesday in The Kansas City Star, Graham warns a 16-year-old inquirer, who is tempted to become sexually active like his or her friends, that engaging in sex outside of marriage is against God's will and can result in physical and emotional damage.

Graham says that God wants Christians to enjoy their lives, and that is the very reason why He has created boundaries around sex. Without those "fences" people could seriously harm themselves and others.

The evangelist points to 1 Corinthians 6:18, 20: "Flee from sexual immorality. ... Honor God with your bodies."

So exactly why does God call for sexual purity? Graham says, "One reason is because he knows the dangers we face when we fall into immorality. Some of these are physical." The evangelist explains that he consistently receives correspondence from people who are dealing with an unexpected pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease.

There are also implications that are not physical. "Many of the dangers are emotional and spiritual: guilt, conflict, depression and so forth."

Graham reminds readers that sexuality is a gift from God and that He means for it to be an expression of love between a husband and wife. "When practiced outside of marriage, however, sex becomes selfish and even manipulative — the opposite of true, self-giving love."

The preacher says that although the pressures to engage in premarital sex are great, God has an even greater plan. "If you'll only follow his plan for your life. You are facing one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and I pray you won't choose the wrong path."

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association founder says that believers should combat temptation with the Word of God. He urges Christians to ask Him to give them strength to resist Satan, The Christian Post previously reported. Graham tells Christians, "You aren't the same person you once were; God now lives within you by his Holy Spirit. Turn, therefore, to him for the help you need to fight temptation." 



You Can Do It! The 4 P’s Of Achieving Your Divinely Inspired Dreams || Read For Free


Feel like this is your time to launch out and build your vision? There are clear steps you should follow to help you build, achieve and ultimately succeed.

If you have a dream in your heart, but don’t know how to press towards that dream, you may feel frustrated and somewhat aimless.

But don’t be upset, weary or anxious. There are surefire principles to help you fulfill the vision the Lord has given you. They are what we call the “4 P’s” of achieving your divinely-inspired dreams.

Principle 1: Pray. Philippians 4:6 (ESV) says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God.” Ask God for wisdom. He'll give it to you and lead you where you need to go. After all, who can direct you toward your divine dream better than the one who gave it to you?

Principle 2: Prepare. Luke 14:28 (NLT) reads, “But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?” Make sure you have the resources you need to make your dream a reality. Don’t dive in without researching, calculating and understanding the amount of finances, equipment and other things you will need to be successful.

Once you know what the endeavor requirers, you can work toward earning, fundraising, and saving the capital required. Furthermore, be encouraged in knowing this: the same God who gives the vision, also gives provision.

Principle 3: Plan. Write a business plan. Set up goals for yourself and have a clear aim. Make sure your dream is focused and specific. Know where you are headed and what you hope to accomplish. At the same time, realize that nothing can be perfectly planned for, so don’t stress yourself out over the little details of how you’ll make it to your final destination.

Realize that ultimately, the Lord is the one who determines how far you will go and when you will get there, so “commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans” (Proverbs 16:3, NIV).

Principle 4:
Persevere. Galatians 6:9 (KJV) says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Building up your vision will take some good old fashioned hard work and sweat equity. You've got to roll up your sleeves and get busy. Even when you feel tired and it gets hard, never give up. When the odds feel stacked against you, press on anyway.

Every business owner and visionary will come up against opposition they must push forward against. You are no exception. But hey, there is no obstacle you can’t overcome and no challenge you can’t tackle if you are determined to keep going! Remember what Philippians 4:13 (NKJV) says: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

To recap, these are the 4 P’s: Pray, prepare, plan, and persevere.

If you remember and apply these spiritually and practically sound tips, you will see all God has placed in your heart come to fruition.

Gospel Recording Artist Deon Kipping Reveals Stage 3 Cancer Diagnosis: ‘I Believe That God Is Able’.

Gospel recording artist Deon Kipping, who has poured into the masses through his music, is now asking others to pour back into him through prayer.

The “What’s Coming Is Better” songwriter has been diagnosed with cancer and is asking the Body of Christ to intercede for him.

“The bad news is I’ve recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, but the good news is God is my healer and I know He has it all under control,” said the somber-looking musician in a recorded video message.

“I don’t have a script to read from today. This is real life and in this life I’m requesting your prayers and support,” he continued.

The 37-year-old Connecticut native, who has been singing since the young age of 9, has shared the stage with gospel greats: Kirk Franklin, Hezekiah Walker and Tye Tribbett. His ability to create touching melodies opened a door for Kipping to compose music for Marvin Sapp.

He wrote and recorded “Praise Him in Advance,” which is heard on Sapp’s 2007 album, Thirsty, earning Kipping his first ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award.

The stricken singer is calling this cancer battle “the biggest fight of my life” and is specifically asking for “prayers for these doctors, prayers for my family, prayers for me, especially my son. Please keep him in prayer. This is a difficult time for all of us.”

Since going public with his illness, the gospel industry has rallied around Kipping. Kirk Franklin, JJ Hairston, Jonathan Nelson, Eric Dawkins and more have taken to their social media pages to rally intercessors.

“I’m not looking for pity. I’m really reaching out for your prayers,” said Kipping in his video message, adding, “I know that I can make it. I believe that God is able and that’s enough for me.”
