The unfortunate news confirming Stephen’s passing was released today on all major news outlets. A representative for Boss told NBC News he died by suicide.

Stephen “tWitch” Boss, is known as the popular “So You Think You Can Dance” alum and as the former DJ for “Ellen DeGeneres Show”. The official news was reported by his wife, fellow dancer Allison Holker Boss. She confirmed the news with the following statement to CNN:

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker Boss said in a statement. “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”

“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” she added. “I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children.”

No further information was provided regarding the cause of his death. Stephen was only 40 years old.

Holker Boss concluded her statement to CNN by saying “Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”

His final instagram post was a ‘shared posted’ released by his wife Allison on Monday showing the two of them dancing in front of the Christmas tree. His wife’s message under the post read “HOLIDAY SUNDAY FUNDAY DANCE!! With my lover @sir_twitch_alot.”

This beautiful pair met when they were all-star dancers on Season 7 of “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2010.

“We shared a dance at the wrap party of that season of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and we have been together ever since,” Boss told People in February.

“There was no dialogue, there was no conversation or a first hangout. Literally, we danced and we were together holding hands the very next day,” Holker Boss added. “And we never looked back.”

Art Soul



Spread the love

Late on Monday, September 26, 2022, Maverick City Music released a statement on Instagram after Bowe was accused of incidents “inconsistent” with the music collective’s “core values and beliefs.” But, what is the alleged “behavior” mentioned in the collective’s statement? This is the question many have been asking. However, an official answer has not been given.

Read the full statement below:

“Due to behavior that is inconsistent with our core values and beliefs, we have decided to put a pause on our professional relationship with Dante Bowe,” the statement opens. “Maverick City Music is a collective of various artists from many different backgrounds and life experiences; as such no one artist’s actions or behavior can always be attributed as a reflection of our core beliefs and values.”

The statement concludes by inviting Maverick City Music fans to offer Dante Bowe their support.

Fans Respond To False News That Dante’s Release was in wake of alleged Bad Bunny singalong

Earlier this month, Dante Bowe allegedly shared a video to his Instagram account of him and friends, some of them Maverick City affiliates, partying on a bus and singing along to Bad Bunny track Despues De La Playa, which was released this year.

According to other news sources, the friends were celebrating the birthday of Sabrina Harrison, co-founder of MINT Dentistry and AMEN Church, and founder of Equipped By Faith Ministries, a non-profit organization that empowers women of faith.

The video came to the attention of Maverick City followers, with explicit lyrics in the Bad Bunny song causing concern. Many fans have been assuming that the release it due to this video being released on his socials. However, Maverick City does not give this or any other reason as the cause for their decision.

Some Fans think collective should ‘extend grace’…

Fans seem divided on the news as many have argued that Maverick City Music should extend grace and others were happy to see action taken over Bowe’s alleged behavior. However, what many fans may still not realize it that an exact reason for their decision has not been made public. However, it is the talk of the video which has given the story more attention and confusion among some fans.

On Tik Tok, one user wrote: “I get it’s concerning but we fall short all the time. I fell short today, we fall short every day. So, I truly don’t get it. It’s funny when someone falls short and we don’t extend grace.” Watch this fan’s full video below:

Others echoed similar divided sentiments on Facebook and Twitter:

It’s clear that many fans don’t feel the punishment matches the actions in this case. Others have argued online that artists and celebrities in both mainstream and Christian circles have remained covered publicly but disciplined privately for worse circumstances. Many have been left confused by the recent actions of the collective. While there are rumors of other possible reasons for this release, no other statement has been made from the Maverick City Collective at this time. But, Dante has recently responded directly to his fans regarding the news.

What is important for fans to remember is that An Official Statement of What The Dante’s Alleged Behavior Is Has Not Been Publicly Shared. What has been shared via the official statements of each party is the only factual news that has been released at this time.

Dante Bowe’s Official Statement

The Grammy Award winning artist released his own statement on social media in response to the collective’s announcement of his release:

“In light of recent events and opinions, I’ve talked to some of the wisest leaders and brothers around me. I’ll be taking time off social media to rest mentally and physically.

“Years ago, when I dreamt of all I would accomplish one day, I didn’t account for the pressure and opinions that would come with it. It’s important for everyone to know when to step back and refocus. Hope y’all understand and support. I’ll hit you up when I’m back.

“Love you guys! This is for the best.”

Posts from his fellow collective members are seen below his statement showing love and support and he takes a break. It’s a good sign to see his team supporting him during this time. Our prayers are also with the collective as they seek how to best cover Dante and help him move forward.

Will Dante Bowe’s Personal Tour Be Cancelled?

We don’t know the full story beyond the information we have shared. But, we will reiterate that according to the collective’s public statement, this is currently a temporary release.

There is no news yet regarding Dante’s up and coming tour featuring Evvie McKinney and CHH group Social Club. We will share more as this story continues to develop. Until then, join us as we continue to support Dante with prayer.

We Celebrate Chadwick Boseman For Sharing His Gift of Story-Telling At Its Finest

Art Soul



Spread the love

Yesterday we all received the surprising news that Chadwick Boseman passed away at only 43 years old. He left behind his wife who he secretly married in 2019. She was his long time love as they dated for nearly 6 years prior to their wedding last year. She was by his side from the time of his diagnosis throughout his battle with cancer. Chadwick passed with her and his family by his side. Our prayers are with his wife, his family and friends. Today we are remembering Chadwick Boseman and celebrating him for his work.

Like most pursuing anything in the entertainment world, Chadwick’s career didn’t begin overnight. His film work spans from 2003 – 2020. Like many, he pressed through a line of rejection and obstacles to get where he was in his career. But, he couldn’t do it alone. This Howard University alumni credits Denzel Washington who later paid for Chadwick to attend Oxford to study acting for being a major help in his career.


In 2019, Boseman spoke at the American Film Institute dinner where he was able to honor Denzel Washington with a lifetime achievement award. He shared the story of receiving Denzel’s help for school during his speech and thanked him saying, “There is no Black Panther without Denzel Washington.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Chadwick shared more of that story. Apparently, while attending Howard, his teacher Phylicia Rashad originally encouraged Chadwick to attend Oxford in the UK during a summer program. While he and friends were accepted to the program, they couldn’t afford to go. “That’s when Rashad, who played Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show, stepped in and ‘essentially got some celebrity friends to pay for us to go,” says Chadwick.

Chadwick went on to portray some of the biggest Black ICONs our world has seen and in the process showed us “story-telling” at its finest! Those roles include Jackie Robinson, James Brown, Thurgood Marshall and the Black Panther where he made history in the world of Marvel super heroes bringing world wide inspiration and a new image of a Black superhero for the world to see.

While Chadwick’s most known roles were filmed in 2013, his career spanned from 2003 – 2020. View a full listing of his film contributions here. Scroll down to see highlights from several of his most known roles:


“42” (The Story of Jackie Robinson)
