RCA/Inspiration recording artist Travis Greene reached #1 this week, marking his third consecutive #1 single, on the Billboard Gospel Airplay Chart for his song, “You Waited.” The chart-topping song is from Greene’s current album, CROSSOVER: LIVE FROM MUSIC CITY, which also recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart.

Greene has been nominated for two career Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, 13 Stellar Awards, three Dove Awards and one Soul Train Award. This year at the 2017 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, he won in seven key categories, including “Song of the Year” (for “Made A Way,” which also hit #1 on the Hot Gospel Songs chart), “Male Vocalist of the Year,” “CD of the Year (The Hill, which also reached #1 on the Top Gospel Albums chart),” “Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year,” “Contemporary CD of the Year,” “Recorded Music Packaging of the Year” and “Praise and Worship CD of the Year.” In 2016, Billboard named him “Gospel Airplay Artist of the Year.”

With 13 of its tracks recorded in 2017 at Skyville Live in Nashville, Tennessee, CROSSOVER: LIVE FROM MUSIC CITY features all original material, including two studio tracks, “Love Will Always Win” (co-written and produced by Travis with Jason Ingram and Paul Mayberry) and “Finally Found” (co-produced with Bernie Herms).

Greene, who launched his recording career with THE MORE in 2007 – shares fresh material with eager audiences in CROSSOVER: LIVE FROM MUSIC CITY, for longtime and new fans alike to partake in an experience that captures the artist’s passion, excitement and charisma onstage — and his ability to reach hearts with the gospel through music.

In 2016, the singer and his wife, Dr. Jackie Greene, launched Forward City Church in Columbia, South Carolina, which he describes as “a church for the unchurched and over-churched.” While pastoring the quickly growing congregation at home and extending scholarships and mission work to thousands of people in Africa, Greene also embarked on a world tour. He brought his cultural boundary crossing music to many African countries, including Nigeria and Ghana; the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago, and Jamaica; Dubai; and to London, Montreal and Toronto. “I’ve been called to minister in many different ways,” Greene says, “but I see my gospel-centered activities not as finding a balance but as more of a rhythm, fully aware of what God has called me to do.”

Should Christians Make Secular Music? A Conversation w/ Jam The Hype & The Founder of ArtSoul Radio

Spread the love

Exploring ideas of creativity, faith and influence in culture.

Published

ArtSoul Radio’s founder Tamara Young was recently featured in a conversation with the newly revamped platform Jam The Hype. They discussed several controversial topics in the church…

“Should Christians do secular music?”
“How can we really influence culture as Christian artists?”
“How real can we really be as an artist in Christian music (Gospel Music & CHH)?”

Previously a platform that focused on promoting CHH artists, Jam The Hype’s new focus has shifted to now focus on developing urban leaders within the artist community so they can effectively influence urban youth culture to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As an advocate for creatives and the founder of two creative platforms, Tamara Young carries a strong passion for the promotion, development and guidance of creatives. Not only is she the founder of this platform ArtSoul Radio, but she is also the lead Founder of the ArtSoul Creatives Network which is a network that is designed to give creatives access to community and exclusive resources & benefits that will help them thrive.

In the video below, she speaks to the truth of many artists often believing that they need to choose between their creativity and their faith. In today’s controversial talk, she poses the question “Would artists need to choose if they knew they could do both in a way that still honors their faith?” This question which led to many other questions and ideals such as secularism, human expression, and more set the stage for a great conversation between her and the hosts of Jam The Hype. This has been an ongoing topic among creatives in faith based communities. Tune in below as they tackle these issues and as always leave your comments!

Jam The Hype now exists to develop urban leaders within the artist community, so that together we can effectively influence urban youth culture to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

MORE ABOUT JAM THE HYPE:

For those who have followed Jam The Hype over the years, you may have noticed that the platform has changed. Previously a space for promoting Christian hip hop artists, it is now a space for development. Under the umbrella of Urban Youth Workers Institute (UYWI), the Jam The Hype platform now exists to develop urban leaders within the artist community, so that together they can effectively influence urban youth culture to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“Our desire is to take our under-developed artists and creators and provide them the tools, information, and motivation to become Godly urban leaders first and artists second. We want to walk the journey with these artists much like and Artist & Repertoire would do with new artists at record labels. This transformation will be led by a new video podcast series created by our new JTH Senior Content Editor, George Moss.”

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.”

Obama Addresses Racism Pandemic In American Via MBK Town Hall Series: Watch It Here

Spread the love

President Obama was recently featured in the MBK Alliance Town Hall Series where they discussed mental health and wellness in a racism pandemic.

In this conversation, Obama joined Congressman John Lewis, Founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative Bryan Stevenson, Writer and Survivor of Police Brutality Leon Ford, Jr., and Youth Leader LeQuan Muhammad, in a conversation moderated by Activist and Author Darnell Moore.

CONVERSATION HIGHLIGHTS:

Over 1,000 people are killed by police every year in America, and Black people are three times more likely to be killed than White people. We can take steps and make reforms to combat police violence and systemic racism within law enforcement.
President Obama pushed many of these reforms during his time in office, and started the My Brother’s Keeper initiative (also known as MBK Alliance) in the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death to break down barriers and expand opportunity for boys and young men of color. But far more progress remains to be made. We’re inspired by those protesting for accountability and change, even in the face of a pandemic.

WATCH THE FULL TOWN HALL MEETING HERE:

The MBK Alliance shared the following statement:

“We work to help leaders change their world—and the world needs changing. The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the loss of far too many Black lives to list, have left our nation anguished and outraged. While now is a time for grief and anger, it is also a time for resolve.”
