Men of Standard Take The Stage At Father’s Day Concert

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

MOSFather’s Day 2016 will go down in history as the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, (the church home of Stephen Hurd and Anthony Brown) hosted a Father’s Day Concert that touted the reunion of Men of Standard after a 7 year hiatus.  It was indeed a great moment as Lowell Pye, Isaac Carree and Bryan Pierce took to the stage to take us down memory lane.  The icing on the cake was the addition of Zacardi Cortez (you can only imagine the utter pandemonium, right?!?!?!?!)

The gentlemen quickly but effectively ran through a number of their hits including the Winans’ Trust In God, Yet Will I Trust In Him, Anointed Song, In Your Will, Latter Rain and I Made It.  The songs had huge impact on the audience as the guys ministered messages of faith and inspiration in the music.  We can only hope that this is the start of a tour and a possible CD in the works.

While we wait on the Men of Standard recording, you can prepare yourself as Bryan Pierce is set to record in August at Mount Zion in Greensboro, NC.

Isaac Carree’s Uncommon Me Gets 5 Stellar Nominations

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.

Isaac Carree – Total Nominations 5
New Artist of the Year, Producer of the Year, Contemporary Male of the Year, Urban Inspirational Single or Performance and Music Video of the Year

Thursday Thoughts: Lowell Pye

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Allow me to say that 2010 was a year of exciting releases.  Some we heard, some we missed, some we liked and plainly some we didn’t want to hear.  The Lowell Pye “Finally” project was one of the exceptions, it was good and memorable (although I am not sure if it got its just recognition). So, let me point you to a few words of commentary……   (album review)

….and because I knew there would be people who didn’t believe me, I brought a clip.
