R&B and Gospel Singer Kelly Price Reported Missing in Georgia

Police in Georgia have listed gospel and R&B singer Kelly Price as a missing person after being unable to find her during a welfare check last weekend.

Price, 48, posted a video on July 29 saying she had COVID-19 and was having trouble with the symptoms. Her family told TMZ she was admitted to a hospital about a week later and then taken to the Intensive Care Unit when her condition worsened. Kelly Price’s last Instagram post was shared on July 29 and it featured the songstress announcing that she was battling COVID.

The family told TMZ that they were in touch with Kelly while she was in the ICU which included several visits from her children. But, they were soon “shocked” to hear that she was discharged just three weeks later as she was “still not fully healthy.”

And while authorities allege that Kelly’s boyfriend was “cooperative” when they spoke to him, Kelly’s family told investigators that he’s been “keeping friends and family members from visiting her home.”

The family and friends of Kelly Price are especially concerned for her safety now that she hasn’t been seen in a month.

According to Cobb County officials who spoke with TMZ, Kelly was officially listed as a missing person following a welfare check conducted at her home last Saturday. They reportedly found no evidence of foul play. They have also talked with Kelly’s financ’e at the residence.

While reports have surfaced that Kelly has been found safe and is back with family, Cobb County officials confirmed with The U.S. Sun that the news is “false.”

“No one in our division has been contacted by her family members to confirm Kelly is back home and safe. Any reports stating otherwise are false and unauthorized as of right now. 

“We hope to find Kelly safe and when that happens, we will let the public know,” authorities told The Sun. “We hope to find Kelly safe and when that happens, we will let the public know.”

This is still a developing story. However, as of now, Kelly Price is still listed as “missing” in the National Crime Information Center. We are sending prayers her way for a fast and safe recovery.

A collaborative group of worship singers come together to write and create songs to show their hearts for God and ended up making history.

Maverick City Music has reached listeners from the church to some of the biggest entertainers today. Their music has millions of listens and views on every music streaming platform and YouTube. This year they have won awards such as Billboard’s Top Gospel Album and The Stellar’s New Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.

Naomi Raine

The group was originally started in 2019 to just write songs. Tony Brown, the founder of Maverick City Music, reached out to artist like Naomi Raine to come along and collaborate to write songs for artist. The singers and artist eventually were asked to sing and preform them. After releasing these songs, it turned into to something that none of them would have ever expected. Maverick ended up breaking the record for the most streams in the Christian genre in one day. When asked did they plan for it to be as big as it is Naomi expressed, “To me it was just going to be something fun that we did with friends, that no one really knew about. I couldn’t have expected what has happened with it.”

Maryanne George

“I think going into it with no expectations was probably the best thing to do because it gave room for the Lord to surprise us along the way” said Maryanne George, a Maverick City singer and worship leader. Major recording artist outside of the Christian genre have mentioned how they have been impacted by Maverick City Music. Just recently, national recording pop artist, Shawn Mendes, mentioned in an interview while talking about the power of music, that he encountered Jesus through Maverick City Music, even though he grew up having Atheistic beliefs.

Dante Bowe

“I use to think, oh we’re called to the church. Now it’s like I got to say no because God is showing us something else! The facts are the facts, like SZA is playing us in the background on her live” says Maverick City and solo singer and songwriter Dante Bowe. Maverick currently has over 2 million listeners monthly on Spotify, with their most popular song being “Promises” sung by Joe L. Barnes and Naomi Raine at almost 25 million streams.

This collective of artist has released 11 music projects over the span of 3 years and with their most recent releases this year being the albums “Old Church Basement” and “Jubilee: The Juneteenth Edition.” Some of the artist have released their own projects recently such as Joe L. Barnes’ single “Come Back Home,” Dante Bowe’s sophomore album “circles,” Naomi Raine’s “Back to Eden, Part II,” and Maverick’s joint album with Elevation Worship.
