Monday, June 6th, 2016

Kirk FranklinGrammy Award Winning Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin has kicked off the second leg of his,  Twenty Years in One Night Tour.  Before going on a brief hiatus, the tour hit several cities across the country and opened to rave reviews. The tour has been filled with special appearances from Tasha Cobbs, Marvin Sapp, Geoffrey Golden, and others.  During the Jacksonville stop this past weekend, Franklin gave the microphone to Josiah “Jojo” Martin during his song, “Intercession”.

Martin is a newly signed artist to Grammy Winner PJ Morton’s label, Morton Records, and has been a background vocalist, writer, and producer in the music industry for over a decade. While Martin did his ad-lib parts the song became very personal. For the past three years he’s battled kidney disease and is currently on the waiting list to receive a new one.

Matt and Laurie Crouch posted sad news of the passing of Jan Crouch, yesterday morning on TBN’s website.

“Laurie and I have just watched the transition of our precious Mother from this world to the next; watched her step into the presence of Jesus and into her heavenly reward. Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home.  Those who battled for the Kingdom of God knew her as a fighter-someone who didn’t give up, someone who fought relentlessly to get the Gospel around the world.  Viewers of the Trinity Broadcasting Network knew her as someone who partnered with Paul Crouch in the launch and expansion of TBN, and as someone who came into their homes for over 40 years. To thousands of orphans around the world, and those orphaned in spirit, she was Momma Jan, quick with a smile, a gift, and a word of encouragement. To a select few she was not a television figure, but was sister, wife, Mom, or Grandma- an integral part of a family. Jan Crouch loved many things, but most of all she loved Jesus, and now has seen Him face to face and has experienced His grace in fullness.

She has taken a piece of our hearts with her, but it’s so wonderful to know that Paul and Jan Crouch are together again, in the arms of Jesus.” (more…)

Atlanta, GA was on fire as Gospel music’s biggest and brightest stars, producers, and industry personalities invaded the city for The 16th Annual BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards.  BMI Vice President Catherine Brewton described the event as a “homecoming”. Sixteen years ago the first BMI Trailblazers Event was held in Atlanta with just a keyboard, drum set, and a hundred people. Since its humble beginnings the event has gone on to be considered the Gospel equivalent of the annual Clive Davis Grammy Party. In past years the event was apart of Stellar Award Weekend, but when it was decided that The Stellar Awards would be held in Las Vegas, BMI decided to return “home” to its Atlanta beginnings.
