Travis Greene’s “You Waited” Reaches #1 on Billboard Charts!

Published

on

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.”

Miss South Africa was crown Miss Universe on Sunday in Atlanta after an elaborate presentation of the Miss Universe Pageant which was held at Tyler Perry Studios for the first time. Zozibini Tunzi, 26, finished first ahead of the Puerto Rican and Mexican finalists in the televised event, hosted by Steve Harvey.

During a new segment of the show, Zozibini gave a closing speech where she spoke of wanting to empower young women to feel confident.

“I grew up in a world where a woman who looks like me — with my kind of skin and my kind of hair — was never considered to be beautiful,” she said in her last response. “I think it is time that that stops today. I want children to look at me and see my face and I want them to see their faces reflected in mine.”

Her speech received strong applause from the audience.

 


The two runners-up for the crown were Miss Mexico and Miss Puerto Rico. For the first time in history, African/American women are holding the top winning spots in the pageant world.

Yvonne Orji Lands Book Deal For New Faith Based Advice Book “Bamboozled By Jesus”

Published

on

Yvonne Orji is a Nigerian-American actress, comedienne and writer who is best known as one of the stars of HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy series Insecure. She made her feature film debut in September of 2018 as apart of the film Universal’s Night School alongside Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. She is also the co-host of the podcast Jesus & Jollof alongside Luvvie Ajayi.

Most recently, she landed a book deal for her new book which is a faith-based advice book titled “Bamboozled by Jesus”. In this book, she uses a modern-day Biblical blueprint to candidly and humorously share the twists and turns that led her to success—and to inspire and empower readers to live their best lives. Yvonne Orji has never shied away from being unapologetically herself, and that includes being outspoken about her faith.

 

Because of that, she is often questioned about how she navigates her career when playing roles that are sometimes polar opposite to who she is and what she believes. Yvonne doesn’t hold back with her responses to those questions. In an interview with NBC, we see her speaking up quickly but each time unashamedly holding on to her faith while explaining how she believes her faith has directed her in this pathway and how she’s currently making it work.

A distinguished stand-up comedian, Yvonne has opened for Chris Rock on various stops on his Total Blackout Tour. Yvonne is also known for her inspiring TED Talk, in which she discusses factors that make for a healthy relationship.
