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.

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

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.

CHADWICK CREDITS DENZEL WASHINGTON FOR PUSHING HIS CAREER FORWARD

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.

CHADWICK’S MOST POPULAR MOVIE ROLES
