Tauren Wells is the former frontman for Royal Tailor, a Provident Label Group/Sony Music act whose two albums over a five-year-career – Black & White(2011) and Royal Tailor (2013) – garnered two GRAMMY® nominations and a nod for New Artist of the Year from the GMA’s Dove Awards.

This past May Wells debuted his first solo effort with the impactful “Undefeated,” featuring Reach Records’ rapper KB. The song also served as the soundtrack for the internet-famous Dude Perfect’s “World Records Edition” episode on YouTube, which has garnered more than 23 million views since its release.

“Undefeated” is just a taste of Wells’ unconventional style. “I’m not trying to be famous or cool for the sake of being cool,” he explains. “I want to say something that impacts people.”

 

 

Wells’ new song “Love Is Action” describes where he is now as a 30-year-old recording artist embarking on a solo career. Nobody changes the world standing in the crowd / Nobody’s voice is ever heard until you open your mouth.

“I have more awareness of who I am, what I want to say and where I want to go,” Wells shares. “I can’t say that I had that at 22. I feel provoked to do something and I want it to be multi-dimensional. I want the listener to feel inspired, but also to ask questions. I feel like the music is the runway to taking people somewhere.”

Residing in Houston, Wells and his wife are raising two young children and building their life around music and ministry. In addition to his music career and serving on staff at his father-in-law’s church, he and his wife launched Prisma Worship Arts School two years ago. Prisma, a private music academy with two locations in the Houston area, has grown exponentially in a short time, already employing 20 “Dream Coaches” and teaching 100 students. Their hands are full but Wells feels compelled to do more. His wife champions the idea: “We said from the beginning that this is a family calling.”

“I feel called to call greatness out of people,” Wells shares. “If people have spoken a low expectation of someone’s life, I want to be the voice that raises the ceiling and makes them feel like they can do something great.”

At the end of this summer Wells will hit the road with KB and Blanca on The Tempo Tour, then will join the Be One Tour with Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey this fall. He admits it’s tough to leave his family to travel but it also gives him hope. With his oldest son now at an age to understand when he’s leaving for the road, Wells says, “I tell him, ‘You know why I’m leaving? To tell people about Jesus. That’s what we do.”

The Rap City TV Show originally aired on the Black Entertainment Television (BET) network from August 11, 1989, to November 8, 2008. The program was an exclusive showcase for hip hop music videos, and features interviews with and freestyles from popular rappers, and often has guest DJs serve as co-hosts. Rap City returned in 2009, then again in 2013. The show has always had a special place in the hearts of Hip Hop fans and later became a historical staple in the genre. BET has been toying with the idea of bringing it back for years. This is an exciting return! We’re excited to see the revamp for a new generation.

Kelly Price Breaks Silence of Her Whereabouts Revealing She Nearly Died From Covid: “I temporarily flatlined”

Kelly Price broke her silence on Sunday after days of concerns over her safety after she was initially believed to be missing following a recent COVID-19 hospitalization.

In a video interview with TMZ, the Grammy-nominated R&B and Gospel singer said she almost didn’t survive the virus.

“At some point they lost me,” she said. “I woke up some days later, a couple days later, and the first thing I remember is the team of doctors standing around me and asking me if I knew what year it was.”

When asked to clarify what she meant by “they lost me,” Price said “I died.”

Price first shared that she had tested positive for Covid-19 on July 29. She has not shared whether or not she is vaccinated. But, she did include the following statement on her Instagram when she announced she had contracted the virus:

“I’m following Dr’s orders. I’m quarantined. Feeling really drained,” stated. “Splitting headache but I’m not in the hospital. I’m grateful and expecting to have a quick recovery. #GodIsAHealer.”

After that announcement, the singer then appeared to drop out of sight, and, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, authorities in Cobb County, Georgia confirmed that a missing person report had been filed for Price. Price’s sister, Shanrae Price, went public with a plea for her to contact concerned family members so they could physically see her. The singer’s attorney, Monica Ewing, told media outlets that Price was not missing, but merely recuperating. Conflicting stories from her family and silence from her label left many fans and friends concerned as the news went viral on social media and multiple news outlets.

KELLY PRICE RESPONDS TO CONCERNS OF HER HEALTH

In this newly released video from Kelly Price, she shared that she had Covid for about a week at home with her husband taking care of her before he also tested positive right before she was rushed to the hospital with worsening symptoms, including a fever of 103 degrees.

She said she was released from the hospital with an oxygen tank because of the shortage of beds and for the next four weeks had health care workers visiting her at home.” People were definitely seeing me,” Price said. “The people that could actually say something are not allowed to because of HIPAA [Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act which guards the privacy of patients] law.” She said she received her first negative Covid test about a week ago.

Price also shared that she is now a “long hauler,” which refers to those who continue to have lingering complications from the virus, and “is facing a very up hill battle right now.” She addressed the issue with her sister, saying that she had not been in contact with her for some time. Price also posted a thank you to those who had been concerned on her Instagram.

We are glad she is safe and continue to pray for her full recovery and healing.

Police in Georgia have listed gospel and R&B singer Kelly Price as a missing person after being unable to find her during a welfare check last weekend.

Price, 48, posted a video on July 29 saying she had COVID-19 and was having trouble with the symptoms. Her family told TMZ she was admitted to a hospital about a week later and then taken to the Intensive Care Unit when her condition worsened. Kelly Price’s last Instagram post was shared on July 29 and it featured the songstress announcing that she was battling COVID.

The family told TMZ that they were in touch with Kelly while she was in the ICU which included several visits from her children. But, they were soon “shocked” to hear that she was discharged just three weeks later as she was “still not fully healthy.”

And while authorities allege that Kelly’s boyfriend was “cooperative” when they spoke to him, Kelly’s family told investigators that he’s been “keeping friends and family members from visiting her home.”

The family and friends of Kelly Price are especially concerned for her safety now that she hasn’t been seen in a month.

According to Cobb County officials who spoke with TMZ, Kelly was officially listed as a missing person following a welfare check conducted at her home last Saturday. They reportedly found no evidence of foul play. They have also talked with Kelly’s financ’e at the residence.

While reports have surfaced that Kelly has been found safe and is back with family, Cobb County officials confirmed with The U.S. Sun that the news is “false.”

“No one in our division has been contacted by her family members to confirm Kelly is back home and safe. Any reports stating otherwise are false and unauthorized as of right now. 

“We hope to find Kelly safe and when that happens, we will let the public know,” authorities told The Sun. “We hope to find Kelly safe and when that happens, we will let the public know.”

This is still a developing story. However, as of now, Kelly Price is still listed as “missing” in the National Crime Information Center. We are sending prayers her way for a fast and safe recovery.
