Ken Townsell Says it Seems Like Forever

Published

on

Ken Townsell (formerly D.T.S.) dropped a joint project with Isaac Wheadon on Black Friday entitled Seems Like Forever.

Seems Like Forever is an experimental album that takes a break sonically from what the mainstream music industry is offering listeners.  Ken and Isaac came together to merge the worlds of Hip-Hop and House music to create something beautiful and special.  According to Ken, the project is meant to encourage listeners who feel stuck in life and wonder when will things change.  His message is simple, “don’t give up on your dreams and goals no matter what,” he says.  “Start where you are, with what you have and trust God with the results.”

Isaac, who produced Seems Like Forever in its entirety, has helped Ken carve out a lane of his own.  With purposeful lyrics like “Though bad things come they will leave/I aint bugging they will flea/but you gotta change your mindset/it might not be your time yet,” and unorthodox and rhythmic beats, this project is a breath of fresh air.  Though much of the music is simplistic in style, it’s impactful and effective. Seems Like Forever is poignant, worshipful and worth a listen.

Gospel legends Kirk Franklin and Fred Hammond recently teamed up for the latest ‘Verzuz’ session! But, instead of the typical battle, they turned the moment into a space for healing.

The world almost seems to be in a chaos of change lately. We are still learning how to navigate the new normal of continuing life in the middle of a pandemic. In addition, the death of George Floyd and the nationwide protests that have followed have only added to the challenges in our world today. This night of inspiration was just what we all needed.

Bishop T.D. Jakes opened the music event with words of hope:

“Darkness everywhere, seemingly everywhere,” he said. “Today we pray for light because we have seen too much darkness, from Trayvon to George Floyd. From 100K people dead from Covid … Lord knows we’ve seen too much darkness.”

Jakes continued, “I don’t know about you … but sometimes I feel like that knee is on my back and I can’t breathe. But let everything that has breath praise the lord.,” and led viewers with a prayer: “We pray back the darkness, we pray back the dark clouds … the injustice, the immorality … We pray it back out of our country, out of our world … out of minds, out of every crevice, out of every shadow, we cast you out! … Oh God, wherever there is pain, giving healing … Where ever there is despair, give hope … The joy is coming in the morning. I can hear the ticktock on the wall … We are getting closer and closer … To the morning … It will not be long until joy comes into your heart, our communities, our lives, our homes our churches. Joy is coming in the morning. And we will breathe again. Amen.”

 

Before the tracks were played, Franklin said, “It’s been a painful week. It’s been a difficult week. We want to make it a moment of healing for you. We have 42 songs to give to you. We know the pain, we see the pain.”

ALL previously purchased tickets for the 2020 show will now be refunded by Ticketmaster. The show will return as a live TV taping in March, 2021!

The virtual presentation will now be a two-hour virtual awards telecast that will air during 3Q of this year. Replacing the live taping previously rescheduled for August in Las Vegas, the new show format will harness the power of technology and creative television production to honor the best in Gospel music. The virtual production will acknowledge all award winners from the Stellar Awards pre-show and main show, with select categories being presented in the broadcast. The broadcast will also feature inspirational performances from Gospel music’s most celebrated artists, and special tributes to first responder heroes on the front lines of the battle against the Coronavirus pandemic.


The Award show founder Don Jackson had the following to say about the recent changes:

“As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic closing venues in Las Vegas, we are producing our Stellar Awards as a virtual at-home television special to honor our Stellar Award 2020 nominees and winners, that will still raise the roof for our fans at home with great Gospel music performances in a new format,” said Stellar Awards Founder and Executive Producer Don Jackson. “Also, it gives us the opportunity to honor COVID-19 first responder heroes in appreciation of the great work they are doing to save lives during this pandemic. We hope to further inspire these heroes with tributes of thanks from our Gospel music cast of Stellar winners and performances.”

Joining previously announced first time co-hosts Jonathan McReynolds and Koryn Hawthorne is Stellar Awards veteran host, Kirk Franklin. The superstar trio will work together to keep the virtual television praise party lifted and flowing seamlessly throughout the evening. Confirmed performers include Donnie McClurkin, James Fortune, J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise, Travis Greene, Pastor Mike Jr., Kierra Sheard, and Doe, with more to be announced.

An important tradition at the Stellar Awards will be held for next year’s 2021 show, where Jackson will bestow well-deserved special honors and recognition upon Gospel greats who have elevated the genre. The previously named recipients – The Clark Sisters, Lady Tramaine Hawkins, Pastor Shirley Caesar in addition to Gospel music industry leaders Dr. Leonard Scott, Skip Barrett, Kerry Douglas, and Dr. Teresa Hairston – will be celebrated for their contributions to Gospel music when The Stellar Awards returns to Las Vegas next Spring in March 2021.

Remnant Conference Creates A Space To Remind Us “There Is More”

Catch What You Missed Here!

What is Remnant Conference?

Remnant Young Adult Conference is an annual gathering hosted by Deeper Fellowship church where William McDowell is the lead Pastor. The gathering caters to young adults (ages 18-35) who, for two and a half days, desire to be transformed by the presence of God. Hosted by Caleb Grant, this conference was designed to create a space of permission for those who are hungry for more, and a place of invitation for those who might not yet know there is more. There IS more!

1 John 5:21 says, “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”

The world we live in today is filled with distractions competing for our attention. Whether it is the invasive nature of social media, the ambition to be successful, or the desire to be known there are many things trying to pull us away from our pursuit of Jesus. This year we are regaining our focus, but more importantly rekindling our first love. We are making a resounding call back to a singular affection (JESUS), and we are declaring war on any competing affections. On May 21st-May 23rd, young adults (ages 18-35) gathered together to immerse themselves in the presence of God, and to hear Him speak.

“It is in His presence where we believe you will be healed, delivered, set free, and set ablaze to live with an unending passion for Him. It is in His presence where we believe you will realize that He Is Enough.”
