Saturday, October 27th, 2012


It doesn’t seem like it has been 20 years since Isaac Carree first burst on the scene as a front man for John P. Kee’s New Life Community Choir.  We remember those days well when Isaac, Lowell Pye and John P. Kee would carry the day through hit songs Wash Me, Wave It Away and Jesus Is Real. Issac would go on to be a founding member of the group Men of Standard in addition to singing with Hezekiah Walker and Love Fellowship as well as backing Michelle Williams and Kirk Franklin.

Today, Isaac Carree can add a new chapter in his list of accomplishments, as he is a Stellar award nominee for his first solo project.  And we couldn’t be more happier.  Its a wonderful opportunity for us to put some of our favorite Isaac moments that you will hear below.

Congratulations Isaac from your friends at Gospelflava.

Kirk Franklin’s “Fearless Tour” Ends With A Bang!

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011


This past Sunday (11/27) the “Fearless Tour” featuring Kirk Franklin with special guests: Isaac Carree, Jason Nelson, Deon Kipping, and Sunday Best Season 4 winner Amber Bullock came to a close in NYC. The tour stopped in several cities across the nation garnering rave reviews. We saw Kirk Franklin expressing his heart on social networks about how much time, effort, and love he was putting into the production of the tour for his supporters. I was able to attend the culmination in NYC and it was  definitely an amazing concert from start to finish. Not only was there phenomenal talent there, but there was a sense of love and definitely God’s spirit in the air. Deon Kipping, Pastor Jason Nelson, Isaac Carree, Amber Bullock, Anaysha Figueroa,Charmaine Swimpson, Eric Moore,and Nikki Ross provided amazing vocals throughout the concert.  Pastor Jason Nelson and Deon Kipping set the stage with their outstanding vocals and presence. They both performed their singles that are now available at music media outlets. Isaac Carree definitely got the crowd hyped with songs off of his chart topping project “Uncommon Me“, which features his hit single “In The Middle“.  Amber Bullock definitely did not dissapoint with her sultry, jazzy, Gospel sound.

Last, but certainly not least,  Kirk Franklin hit the stage. He incorporated new material from his chart topping new project “Hello Fear” with his beloved classics like: “Something About the Name Jesus“, “Melodies From Heaven“, “Imagine Me“, “Why We Sing” and more. With Kirk Franklin you’re always going to get a ecclectic array of music. From hip hop to traditional to contemporary sounds, dare I say- he covers it all! I reflected, shed a few tears, danced, sang to the top of my lungs, and was completely ministered to by the “Fearless Tour” Concert. He ended off the night with his current single “I Smile” which has been riding at the top of the Billboard Charts. The musicians, singers, and all involved produced a wonderful musical experience.  It was a great night and part of the experience was recognizing the need to continue to spread the message of love, diversity, and the gospel to the world. Kirk asked us to commit to reaching out to venues or entities that would host events like the “Fearless Tour” and let them know that we will support Gospel music, and come out to concerts etc. So in whatever way you can make an impact, let’s do just that. Let’s break down the walls and allow folks to experience the influence of Jesus Christ in our lives through the music and media forums. The “Fearless Tour” definitely proved to be a night to remember!
