On August 18th, Jamie Grace made an announcement via Instagram stating that she is no longer signed with Gotee Records.  The 2x Grammy & Billboard Nominated, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter came to this decision on her own after much soul searching.

Read her official statement below:

I am very excited to say that I have been working on new music and will be touring and releasing new music very soon. However, while I am grateful for how my platform as an artist was expanded while on Gotee Records, the steps I take in the future will not be as an artist on that label. Jamie Grace right now is the same Jamie Grace who signed up at Youtube.com ten years ago to make people smile. To bring people joy. To encourage people. All because I found the love of Jesus and desperately needed to share it. So with my music, books, ministry, films (what?!), exciting new opportunities and all else the Lord puts on my heart and, that is what I will strive to do. Tell the world about the joy I found in Jesus Christ. Join my newsletter at jamiegrace.com to be the FIRST to know when my third studio album will be released.

Jamie Grace has been represented by Gotee Records for seven years now.  From that relationship came several albums including the radio hits “Hold Me”, “You Lead”, “Beautiful Day” and “Do Life Big”.  Her sister Morgan Harper Nicols was also recently signed to the label in March of 2015.  Morgan released her first self-titled album, featuring the radio hit “Story Steller” under the label in May of that same year.  However, Morgan has recently released a stream of similar messages via twitter stating that she will now be leaving the label as well.

Jamie’s announcement comes not long after a stream of twitter posts hinting to her desire to do more musically than her current label home was able to support.  Her announcement also comes after an experience she had this month at an Adele concert.  Adele recently chose Jamie Grace at random to join her on stage to sing. Adele was not familiar with Jamie Grace, which explains her shock after Jamie sang her first note!

Click here to read the full story of that moment.  The live-recorded moment of Jamie singing for Adele has since gone viral and earned her interviews with ABC, CNN, Inside Edition and more!

In a recent feature on ABC’s Good Morning America, she shared that she has been struggling with what to do next in her career for a while.  But, she now believes that the moment she was on stage with Adele, may have been just the encouragement she needed to sway her into continuing to make music.

“Just because you’re an artist and you’re on the radio or you have a Grammy nomination, people might think that everything is good,” she said. “I’ve actually been going through a really emotional time with music and have just been really overwhelmed with what’s next in my career.” – Jamie Grace

Jamie Grace also shared with Good Morning America that her doubts of whether or not she should still continue making music were weighing so hard on her that she had been in counseling to help her make the decision.  But, it was the moment Adele gave her on the stage that has officially swayed her towards continuing to create music.  See her statement to GMA below:

“Even though I have this recognition and this career, to be given the opportunity to sing for Adele’s crowd — it was a reminder and an assurance that I do have a voice and the voice does matter.  It was everything I needed.”

 

In July of this year, Jaimie released a new video on her YouTube channel celebrating 10 years of being on the YouTube platform where she first got her start!

 

She thanks her followers for sticking with her and encourages them to stay tuned for what’s coming next!  Jamie Grace and her sister started off as a duo before their relationship with Gotee Records.  During their time there, they have continued to post a host of video music covers and inspirational talk videos on each of their personal YouTube Channels as a way to remain expressive and to consistently communicate with their fans.

Gotee Records has not yet released a statement of their own regarding this split. Jamie Grace encourages everyone to sign up for her email newsletter where she will keep everyone up to date with the date of her coming release.

This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is in crisis, call 988 to reach the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. You can also call the network, previously known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, at 800-273-8255, text HOME to 741741 or visit SpeakingOfSuicide.com/resources for additional resources.

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.”

The couple celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary just days ago.

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.”

Most Recent Work

After leaving the Ellen show in 2020 where he had recently been promoted as the co-producer of the show, ‘tWitch’ returned to “So You Think You Can Dance”. In February of 2022, he and his wife announced the launch of the new Athleisure line “Fly” with Dicks Sporting Goods where they served as the new brand ambassadors.

Most recently, ‘tWitch’ and Allison both appeared with major roles in the new Disney film “The Hip Hop Nutcracker” which released on Nov 25th, 2022.

Responses started to flood social media Wednesday morning from celebrities and fans:

“I’m heartbroken,” wrote Ellen DeGeneres on Instagram alongside a photo of the pair hugging. “tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart. I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children — Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”

Marvel has released a new look at the next chapter of “Black Panther” and it’s powerful. 

The two-minute teaser, released during the studio’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, is packed with peeks at what awaits us in the sequel without star Chadwick Boseman, who died after a private battle with cancer in 2020 at age 43. 

One thing is clear from in brief look: Boseman may be gone, but T’Challa is not forgotten.

“I am queen of the most powerful nation in the world, and my entire family is gone,” Angela Bassett’s Ramonda says at one point. “Have I not given everything?” 

But amid the grief that permeates the preview, there’s hope, the birth of new life (literally) and a glimpse at the future, with a clawed sneak peek of a new suited hero. 

The movie hits theaters Nov. 11th.
