THE HAPPENING


AUTHENTIC MEDIA RELEASES…..Since it's 2008 debut album, Over and Underneath, TENTH AVENUE NORTH has become one of Christian Music's most successful artists, saturating Christian radio with memorable songs such as "Love Is Here," "Hold My Heart," "By Your Side," "Worn," "I Have This Hope," "The Struggle," and "Control." Eleven years and eight albums later, Tenth Avenue North is set to release "No Shame", a vulnerable portrayal of the willingness to embrace the struggle and choose to believe truth. For years Tenth Avenue North has met fans where they are, but this time they want to invite the listener into a two-way conversation, showing their bold personality and desire to help others break off unnecessary shame. In the end, the band hopes this collection of new songs helps others find and experience freedom…..KURT CARR returns with 'Bless Somebody Else', his first new music since 2013's 'Bless This House'. Carr is noted for weaving lush live instrumentation and jaw-dropping vocal arrangements into his music ministry. As the composer of such beloved inspirational anthems as 'For Every Mountain', 'In The Sanctuary', 'God Blocked It', and 'I've Seen Him Do It', Carr has carved out a niche for himself as a modern day musical maestro. 'Bless Somebody Else' speaks to the current season in Carr's life, and to a message that he feels compelled to share with the world. The title track, and the surrounding body of work, was inspired by the life of Carr's long-time assistant, Dorothy King, who passed away suddenly. "Dorothy walked by my side in ministry for 25 years. She was the most unselfish person I've ever known, and her entire life was devoted to blessing everyone she came in contact with. Her death was devastating to me and my entire team. She literally took care of us. It took time to heal our hearts, but we are back and ready to serve!"….. When the world is in a constant state of crisis, the soul desires comfort in the face of chaos' says Mitchell. '"ELEMENTS" represents my heart's response to the cry from the earth for answers in the middle of tumultuous times'. The latest release from singer/songwriter VaSHAWN MITCHELL creatively draws the audience into an exploration of nature's basic 'ELEMENTS'; Wind, Fire, and Rain. The music guides listeners to examine the fundamental principles of the believer's walk. It serves to encourage and inspire to continually walk 'by faith' allowing confidence in God to become truly foundational in the interpretation of life's issues. The album's first single, 'God Can Do Anything', is compelling in its reminder of a truth often minimised in the face of life's issues. The chant like chorus pulls the listener's focus towards that singular truth and is designed to reignite our spiritual elements; Hope and Belief. The entire project features the diversity of musical stylings most often associated with the 20 year career of VaShawn Mitchell and is promised to produce music that can be sung by people of all ages and races…..Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter LAURA STORY, known for the impactful songs 'Blessings', 'Indescribable' and 'Mighty To Save' shares her powerful story of finding blessing in her deepest pain in her newest release 'I Give Up'. It is a reflection of her journey to learn that she no longer wants to be in control of her life. She wants to be rooted in the God who is in control. Discover a deeper life of worship, a fuller life of joy, and a freer life of true surrender as you open your hands to God. And give up……Overcomer: Music From And Inspired By The Original Motion Picture. About the Movie: Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humour, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theatres with 'Overcomer', their newest feature following 'Facing the Giants', 'Fireproof', 'Courageous', and the #1 box-office hit, 'War Room'. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson. Opening nationwide on August 23, 'Overcomer' dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?

About the Soundtrack: "We loved working on 'Overcomer' and loved choosing these songs for this Soundtrack. We're also grateful for a beautiful score by Paul Mills, who continues to compose inspiring themes that touch the heart. As you listen, we hope you are encouraged by each song and reminded that God loves you more than you can imagine, and he wants a daily relationship with you. He knows what you're going through, and with him, you can overcome!" - Alex Kendrick, 'Overcomer' Director.


When legendary Gospel Music Hall of Famer and guitar virtuoso PHIL KEAGGY joined forces with multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer REX PAUL to release their transcendent new rock album, Illumination, fans knew it was something special.  

Now, respected faith music resource UTR Media has joined a growing number of media reviewers by declaring Illumination one of the Best Albums of 2019 (So Far), citing the duo's "killer production and an unabashed loved for tight, polished, classic rock."

"I want to express my thanks to the folks at UTR for listening to our new release, Illumination," says Keaggy. "I also wish to thank Rex Paul for collaborating with me and producing a project that has gained the attention of your ears and hearts! Many thanks also goes to McCain and Co. Public Relations for bringing our project to a wider listening audience. I'm grateful!"

UTR Media's accolades join a growing stream of positive industry reviews, including Robert Berman of Christian Musician Magazine, who calls Illumination "...a supremely catchy arena rock/pop album recalling the '80s heyday of Survivor and Foreigner."  

Keaggy and Paul have announced the limited edition release of Illumination on vinyl. Fans can order the album on vinyl now from www.philkeaggy.com/store

"There's something special about the needle drop and sound of playing our record the way I grew up hearing my favorites," Rex Paul declares. "It is like a meditation in sound. I am happy for the resurgence of vinyl records and turntables. They make listening to music a special event. I hope everyone feels the love we invested to craft this album!"


Fans of country music in the 90s would have remembered JO DEE MESSINA. Messina  debuted in 1996 with the single "Heads Carolina, Tails California."  Her album was certified Gold by the RIAA. Her second album, I'm Alright, produced five Top 10 Country hits between 1998 and 1999, and sold over a million copies in America. Since her debut, six of her singles have peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Country singles chart and five of her albums have received a certification by the RIAA or the CRIA.  

However, in 2017, Messina hit "rock bottom" when she was diagnosed with cancer.  It was during this time she had a visit from Jesus.  "If you've walked my life in the last five years, it has not been a typical life. Not a lot of it goes out in press, which is great, because a lot of it's painful, and a lot of it's hurtful, and a lot of it's scary," Messina shared with PopCulture.com. "About five years ago, Jesus Christ walked onto my front porch and argued with me all day long. As real as I'm sitting in this seat, Jesus came to my front porch and he's like, 'She's mine.'

"I was at an all time low. I was trying to sustain a career. I had a lifestyle and a family and everything, all on my own, and I couldn't do it. I couldn't. I was pulled way too thin and so, I was just standing on my porch one day, and Jesus Christ walked out and said, 'She's mine.' I just knew it, in the middle of that, in the middle of my spirit and my soul, I'm like, 'That's Jesus.'"

Following the encounter, the country star ran next-door to her neighbour and asked for more information of the Christian messiah.

"I know the stories," Messina explained. "I know the Christmas and Easter. He was born on Christmas, died on Easter. You know what I mean? But I didn't know Him. Just having that intimate relationship with God, and I'll sit here right in front of you and tell you He loves you more than you ever even imagine."

Messina was so moved by her encounter that she decided to record Cory Asbury's worship staple, "Reckless Love."


UK based worship leader, author and singer/songwriter MAKPO has released his new summer single 'Live For You'. The single follows Makpo's 2016 album 'Overcome Today', an expression of his Christian journey alongside his diverse music styles - R&B, Gospel, African praise and Soft Rock genres.

Makpo also trained as an Economist and obtained a Masters Degree in Economics from the University of Leeds before his launch in the Business/Data Analysis Market. Albeit, 'nothing' in his words, 'compare to the moments spent in the place of worship'.

Makpo's repertoire of soothing, energetic, creative sounds conveys love, hope, strength and joy to you and everyone who listens. https://youtu.be/KKee9DsGiV0


Feels Like Home, the highly anticipated new studio recording from one of Southern Gospel's most lauded soloists, IVAN PARKER, is set to release August 2 from Difference Media. Produced by Garry Jones (Canton Junction, Brian Free), the project-which pays homage to Parker's roots- is a watershed collection of 11 gospel classics that indelibly inspired the artist's own calling.  

From the Bill and Gloria Gaither-penned opening track, "Feeling At Home In The Presence Of Jesus," to the closing strains of "Through It All," written by the late genre-spanning icon Andraé Crouch, Feels Like Home marries Parker's signature style with songs that helped define a golden era of gospel music.

Additional highlights of the album include Kris Kristofferson's 1973 blockbuster hit "Why Me"; "I Just Came To Talk With You Lord" and "The Holy Hills Of Heaven Call Me," both written by late GRAMMY® and Dove Award winning singer/songwriter Dottie Rambo; the Dallas Holm-penned "You And Me Jesus"; and "His Hand In Mine," by late Gospel Music Hall of Famer Mosie Lister.


Former Nashville College students, LOCAL SOUND have released their second EP, Sunday School, on July 19th. True to the title, Sunday School takes five of the group's favourite worship songs from their childhoods recorded with Local Sound's pop worship spin. Listen to the first single, "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever:"

"I grew up listening to these songs," shares Local Sound's Emily Wyant. "They are truly the soundtrack of my childhood. Though hundreds of new and wonderful worship songs have been released since then, these songs remind me of the childlike faith I am meant to live from. A faith that is purely based on worship and adoration of God without asking for anything in return. I am honored to be a part of a project that recognizes the beauty and importance of these songs."

Since the songs featured on Sunday School on the EP are globally-known and have been sung in churches around the globe for decades, Local Sound has recorded the songs in both Spanish and Portuguese along with English. The group has been personally impacted by these cultures and wants to honour them with these translations as resources for their local church.

Fire is a symbol of the Holyspirit and we need the Holy Spirit as believers. This song is for everyone who wants a radical refined life of purpose We need the fire of the Holy Spirit to burn, refine, refresh and purify.

Glorious Rescue is full of crunchy guitars, energetic and pacey drums, and showcases JONNY SOMERVELL’S songwriting talents in abundance.

There’s an air of NEEDTOBREATHE, Switchfoot and even slight glances towards Busted (if you squint and look hard enough) to this track. However, it’s the ability to craft lyrics that are both personally honest yet universally applicable where Jonny really shines.

Jonny says; “The song Glorious Rescue was written from spiritual revelation and to an extent it largely wrote itself. During a personal time of prayer, I started to reflect on how far Jesus came to save us and his never-changing, all-encompassing love. As I continued to dwell on this, God started to give me some new lyrics and before I knew it this worship anthem (the chorus) was playing in my head – You came running after every last soul // You wouldn’t leave a single one alone // You came running after every last soul // You longed to see Your children come home. I felt incredibly inspired by God’s creativity and the way He was writing a new worship song in my head!

At this point I realised that God was birthing a new and exciting song in me so I grabbed my guitar and sang through the chorus a few times. After this the rest of the song came very quickly, with the verse focusing on how God’s heart never changed for us and how Jesus came ‘running across the galaxies’ to save us and bring us home. The bridge takes inspiration from Hebrews 10 and marvels at how we can stand ‘on holy ground’ in the presence of God because of what Jesus has done for us. What a GLORIOUS RESCUE it was!”


Gospel music circles are abuzz with International and acclaimed Choir Director CHANTEL R WRIGHT releasing a new CD on LeChateau Earl Records. The six-song EP, Chantel R. Wright Presents Pneumatica: All We Need was produced by Wright and group member Orson Benjamin, who co-wrote all the songs on the project. The EP features music by the new nine-piece vocal ensemble Pneumatica – an inspired youth-group off-shoot of her 60-member choir Songs of Solomon, also founded by Wright. All We Need is available on iTunes and Amazon, and other digital music platforms worldwide.

“Our name Pneumatica stems from the Greek root pneuma which means ‘wind’ or ‘breath,’ and in spiritual terms represents the soul of God,” explains Wright. “Pneuma Ministries is our church and Pneumatica is the name of our group: two sopranos, two altos, two tenors, two basses, and me. Every word that comes out of our mouths is birthed from prayer, supplication, and humility – messages that will help people heal, mend fences in their family and come back to the Lord. The question that is ever on our spirits is: What kind of sound can we put out into the world that is sure to be a blessing?”


S.O. , Lamp Mode Recordings’ first international artist, has set Sept. 6 th  as the release date for his latest album,  Augustine’s Legacy.

S.O.  is known for bearing his soul through his music, and the album title  Augustine’s Legacywas birthed out of him processing the passing of his father.“On the anniversary of my dad’s passing, I put something on Instagram with the hashtag #AugustinesSon , and my wife did something, but she put   #Augustines Legacy , and I’m like,‘Babe, that’s fire! That’s the album title,’”  S.O.  said. “We’re all leaving a legacy. What’s your legacy going to be when you pass? Thankfully, I have a good memory of my dad, so I want to continue his name.”

You’ll get that emotional side. This album is where I am right now.” Pre-order the album here: http://ditto.fm/augustines_legacy?mc_cid=4fb866f543&mc_eid=2a32fe9f8a


Legendary rock vocalist, Grammy and Dove Award-

winning GMA Hall of Famer JOHN SCHLITT, recently joined MICHAEL SWEET, frontman for the multi-platinum selling rock band Stryper, for an intimate acoustic concert event. Although Schlitt and Sweet had previously shared the stage in Brazil in 2017, this concert marked the legendary vocalists' first time performing together in the U.S.

The concert was a benefit for the A. Miriam Jamison Children's Center in Kern County, California, a facility which provides the abused, neglected, and abandoned children of the county with a temporary, safe haven where their needs can be met.

The intimate, unplugged event featured Schlitt, accompanied on acoustic guitar and backing vocals by his Union of Sinners & Saints bandmate Jason Fowler, while Sweet accompanied himself on acoustic guitar. The two great rock vocalists even shared a song together, much to the crowd's delight. The Guitar Center donated a guitar, autographed by both Schlitt and Sweet, which was raffled off, with proceeds benefiting the Jamison Children's Center.

"Getting to share the stage with Michael again was amazing," says Schlitt, "and serving a great organization like the Jamison Children's Center was a privilege. It's just one way of fulfilling Jesus' heart for little children."

"Having John and Michael together for the first time ever in the U.S. was awesome," declares event organizer Heath Kelsey. "Having them perform a song together was icing on the cake. And Jason Fowler was amazing on the guitar. It was a special time for me. I grew up to Petra and Stryper, and I believe they were the foundation for today's Christian rock bands. On top of all that, it was for a great cause, with proceeds benefiting the Jamison Children's Center. It was a win-win for everyone involved."

New artist HUMBLE FEET have released its debut eponymous album. . “Humble Feet,” a 10-track collection, is available on all digital platforms, including iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and Apple Music.

“Each of these songs was inspired by the Holy Spirit in my heart as I served in ministry and studied the Bible and encountered people that needed Jesus and the lost,” said Michael Taylor, Humble Feet’s founder and frontman. “I would dig into the Bible and find meanings to different things that I had been experiencing or I felt the Holy Spirit highlighting to me and my heart. That would slowly form into this song.

“Actually each of these songs is less of worship music and more of a mini sermon, a message of my heart from the field that the Lord has given me specifically from my experiences in ministry and from my walk with Jesus,” he said. These songs, Taylor said, were birthed out of real experiences, difficulties and spiritual victories while serving Jesus on the other side of the world.

“We pray that this music project would inspire hope, challenge you spiritually and help you to grasp God’s heart for the nations,” Taylor said. “As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’”


Christian rap artist G.L.O, which stands for God's Love Only, has released an 11-song collection titled "Reborn."

"'Reborn' is an album of uncompromised, Scriptural-based lyrics alongside R&B, rock and hip hop melodies," G.L.O says. "My mission with this project is to reach the lost, encourage the saints and to prepare others for battle, which is why I grace the cover of my album wearing warrior attire."

Music has been important to G.L.O since she was young. When she received Jesus Christ as her Savior in 1998, she asked God to reveal her purpose. As she began writing songs, the songwriter noticed that none of her songs glorified God.

"That all changed one fateful day," G.L.O says, "when God had a Word for me in Bible Study: 'You can't have one foot in the world and one foot out.' After receiving that message, it was the breakthrough I needed. I haven't looked back."

With a ministry that knows no boundaries and one that reaches the young and the old, G.L.O's prayer is that her music can break down the misconception that rap is only of the world.


CAROL LEE SAMPSON’s forthcoming single & video (Today is a Good Day) is due for release at the end of Aug (single release day Fri 23rd Aug). She says; “The inspiration for the song came after a member of my church family passed away unexpectedly back in Jan - he had been a very positive & upbeat man, & his 'mantra' for life was 'Today is a good day'! I know that there are difficult times that we have to face in life, but I hope that this song will lift people's spirits, & help them to see that while we have life, then today is a good day!”

Carol hopes that this song will resonate with many, & cause them to rejoice at being alive!


Soul Survivor has been the training ground for several significant worship leaders including Matt Redman, Tim Hughes & Beth Croft. The latest of these is TOM SMITH, who was featured on last year's Soul Survivor live album 'Standing On The Edge' and previous album 'The Promise'.

The album incorporates the Everyday EP, supplementing it with excellent live versions of songs previously only released as studio tracks (Take My Life & Dynamite) as well as the single 'Come Holy Spirit'.

The Provident debut single from MATTHEW WEST, “The God Who Stays”, will be released on August 23rd. The thoughtful lyrics, driving melody, and personal message of this incredible song deliver the comfort that Hebrews 13:5 portrays – that He’s the God who stays even if we’ve given up on ourselves or feel like the world has abandoned us.

Matthew shares that, “When I listen to it, I hear that late night conversation at the piano and remember how God whispered this reminder to me that He’s in it for the long haul. He’s not fed up and He’s not giving up on me."
