While Kevon Carter is most known for his funny videos on social media, music was his first love. Having released his first album a decade ago and composed songs for Bishop Paul S. Morton, Jonathan McReynolds and more over the years, Carter has stepped back into the artist room to release another album titled Finally (I Felt That Music).

The 16-track gospel album has already hit no. 3 on iTunes and Amazon Christian music charts! 

His press release states: The project features tender ballads such as “Through the Pain,”  “You Survived” and “Open Heaven.” There are fast tracks such as “Be Exalted” and the retro groove, “Give Him Praise.” However,  “Check Their Fruit” which is based on Galatians 5:22-23 is getting attention. “It’s a fun song with a message, a real message,” he says. He adds that “Always A Reason” is a simple ballad that explains that there’s always a reason to praise the Lord. “Again” is another fine ballad. “It’s a self-reflective song about the guilt and shame that comes with making poor decisions,” he says. There are also three brief comedic interludes sprinkled throughout the set. 

When God has a calling on your life, it’s hard to ignore it. Believe it or not, Carter had no intentions of being a comedian but he stumbled upon a way to combine the talent with his passion for music. 

“I decided to do a funny song about vocal runs to post on Facebook. I knew nothing about making videos online. When I posted the video, it went viral. I started getting so many friend requests that my personal page reached the max to accept friends,” he says. “After going viral,  I decided to do another video weeks later and that video also produced thousands of views. People would comment about how much they enjoyed the skits, and they encouraged me to do more and so I did.  As I kept going, I slowly began to see that the comedy and humor was also a ministry.”

David Michael Wyatt is rightfully known as “The Velvet Voice”! He has most currently been known for singing on tour with Tobe Nwigwe where he has received praise from artists such as Beyonce, Erica Badu and more! But, now he’s making his own pathway as a solo artist.

On August 26th, the ArtSoul Radio team is partnering up with Aspire Booking to bring David to The Promontory in Hyde Park Chicago! We are excited to have been asked to help create and plan this event while also taking on the full promotion of it for this date. Supporting both local artists and mainstream is our passion and something we have done on a regular basis for almost a decade. So, saying “Yes” to this invitation was easy! Our team is excited about pouring all of our efforts and resources into this partnership to help make it a success!

In addition to David Michael Wyatt, we made sure that the night will include a few top tier Chicago local artists such as Rahkii (a Previous ArtSoul Spotlight artist), Ephraim Bugumba (an Aspire Booking client) and Jasmine Sims (another ArtSoul Spotlight artist). Our host for the night is one of Chicago’s favorite Gospel Radio personalities Keno Greer! It’s going to be a great night! You don’t want to miss it!

While it’s true that David Michael Wyatt has a growing fan base that includes some of the greatest artists we’ve ever seen to grace a stage, this Texarkana native has spent years perfecting his musical talents to get where he is today. This Berklee College of Music alumni, is a singer, songwriter and actor whose music fits perfectly into multiple genres including Gospel and R&B. Wyatt was part of BET’s Sunday Best gospel talent show, has shared the stage with well-known singers such as Kirk Franklin and has been been featured on Grammy Award Winner Israel Houghton’s albums and has entertained leaders such as the previous President-Elect Barack Obama. Outside of his solo endeavors, David can be seen touring with Brian Courtney Wilson and Ledisi.

This is the first in person event ArtSoul Radio has done since before the Pandemic and it has been an exciting experience for us to team up with Aspire Booking so our team can get our creative juices running again by helping to create this event for fans and taking on the full promotion for it.
This is also the first time some of the featured local artists have performed live in Chicago since the start of the pandemic. Needless to say, we’re ALL excited to be back outside y’all!

So, we’re inviting all ArtSoul Radio supporters, and fans of all of the artists being featured to come out to support this event! You don’t want to miss it!

The World’s Collide Tour Brings Gospel & Christian Hip Hop Together To The MidWest In A Major Way!

The Gospel music world and Christian Hip Hop (also known as CHH) have had a long history of disagreements and misunderstandings. But, there seems to be something new in the air hinting to change.

This year alone, we have seen CHH and Christian Soul making a larger appearance than ever on the Stellar Gospel Music Awards stage featuring new and seasoned Christian Soul and Hip Hop artists like Aaron Cole, Erica Mason, Jordan Armstrong and more. Over the last 10 years, other award shows such as The Dove Awards, The KLove Music Awards and more have also been giving CHH and other Christian genres more shine. While the CHH industry has its own Award show, namely the Kingdom Choice Awards (based in NYC) which has been going strong for over 10 years, the Gospel community is starting to pay attention like never before!

As the winds of change continue to blow in both the Gospel and CHH industries, the World’s Collide Tour seems to be coming at a perfect time! What happens when Gospel and CHH come together in unity with the same mind of worship and impact? Fresh Heir Entertainment, the founders of The World’s Collide Tour are about to find out!

Featuring newly seasoned Gospel greats such as The Wall’s Group are coming together with one CHH’s best KB (previously of Reach Records, now signed with Sony Records) to show what happens when the two worlds collide! In addition to these seasoned artists, the stage will also feature newer artists in both genres such as Zeke Lock and The New Xperience (newly signed to Tyscott Records), Midwest CHH artist Relentless and more!

While this type of tour hasn’t happed often, we believe it will soon be seen much more in the coming future and Fresh Heir Entertainment is already in front of it all making history as they continue to bring tours to Chicago and beyond!

If you’re interested in attending The World’s Collide Tour, scroll down for more details and to access ticket link. You’ll be glad you showed up!!

With nothing but extreme passion for Jesus and a heart to free people from the mindset of lack, Fresh Heir Entertainment looks to leave an everlasting impact on the culture of CHH for years to come!
