Tiffany BynoeTiffany Bynoe hails from music royalty.  As the niece of GRAMMY Award-winning R&B balladeer, Howard Hewett, she’s been surrounded by music her entire life.  As the wife of Kyle Bynoe, noted producer and songwriter, she’s partnered with a GRAMMY and multiple Dove Award Nominee who has worked with artists such as Will Downing, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Rizen and Shekinah Glory on their upcoming CD.  As a singer and songwriter herself, she found success as an Elektra recording artist with a #1 hit.  Now Tiffany Bynoe is back with a brand new inspirational song, “Blessed By The Best”, from the forthcoming album, The Answer.  The new project is the first out of the gate from the newly-formed 5 Ocean Music Group.  The new song is currently available on iTunes.  The video can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/1x4gnvc
The emotive ballad finds the songstress singing with passion and reminding the listener that they’ve been “blessed by the best”.  Already rising up the Gospel charts, the song is close to Tiffany’s heart.  As a co-writer of “Blessed By The Best”, she wants the song to bring inspiration to those who hear it.  “We are all going to go through something,” shares Bynoe.  “But I want to remind believers that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Know that if you are in a hurt place today, you won’t be there always.”
The Gospel industry is sitting up and taking notice of the chanteuse and the new single:
“Amazing!  Heartfelt! Caught completely off guard by this phenomenal authentic talent.”       – Torrez Harris, Program Director of WHLH-FM (Jackson, MS)
“‘Blessed By The Best’ is a song that should become an anthem for those who have triumphed and give hope to those who face challenges.  I would love to hear more of this talent.”   – Lee Pettigrew, ​WUFO (Buffalo, NY)
“I have been listening and enjoying Tiffany’s talent for years now and her new single “Blessed By The Best” does not disappoint. Her voice is powerful and brings the point of the song home in so many different capacities.  I’m so proud of her conviction to the talent that God has blessed her with.”  – Howard Hewett, GRAMMY Award-winning R&B Singer

No comments 05 November 2014 Under: Black Gospel News
Patrick Lundy & The Ministers Of Music AnniversaryPatrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music, the multiple Stellar Award-nominated Gospel choir, is preparing to celebrate 20 years of singing God’s praises.  Known for backing up popular Gospel and mainstream recording artists such as Tramaine Hawkins, Edwin Hawkins, Albertina Walker, B.B. King, Lyle Lovett, Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson, and Jennifer Holliday, Patrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music are also known for their dynamic performances, impeccable artistry and pure anointing.  With years of ministry behind them, they are taking time out to commemorate those years at their 20th Anniversary Celebration scheduled for Saturday, November 8th at 5PM.  The event takes place at Reid Temple AME Church located at 11400 Glenn Dale Blvd., Glenn Dale, MD, where Rev. Dr. Lee P. Washington pastors.  The celebration is also a live recording featuring the vocal talents of Kathy Taylor and the DC debut of Patrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music – GA Connection.  To purchase tickets, log on to www.plundymom.com.
Lundy is excited about the choir’s milestone.  Always a lover of Gospel music, he got the idea of forming the group during his time as a member of two popular choirs.  While singing with the Georgia Mass Choir and working under directors Rev. Milton Biggham and James Bignon, Lundy was captivated by the choir sound.  His time with the Howard Gospel Choir, under the direction of Paul Gatlin, further solidified his calling to Gospel music and choir directing.  Those experiences led him to start Patrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music.  Fascinated by the diversity of the repertoire and the versatility of the singers in those choirs, he has recreated those special qualities in his own choir, The Ministers of Music.

CBN To Profile Gospel Artist Sharetta-Nicole In Poignant Segment On The 700 Club

No comments 30 October 2014 Under: Black Gospel News
sharetta-nicole(Atlanta, GA) – October 30, 2014 – Few people have been through what Gospel artist Sharetta-Nicole has and have lived to tell the story.  Watching one parent die in front of her and having another kidnapped and murdered were just two of the enormously traumatic events that are part of Sharetta-Nicole’s story. A fire, abuse and other catastrophic events followed and all of it before she was 15 years old.  Through it all, she found the Lord.  The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) will be recounting her powerful testimony on The 700 Club on ABC Family on Monday, November 3rd.  Look for the program to broadcast at 8:30AM ET and 9:00AM ET, but check local listings for air times.  The segment can also be viewed online through the live webcast and video on demand at www.cbn.com.
The challenges left Sharetta-Nicole feeling hopeless.  She says, “I felt like I had lost everything.  I felt completely alone. I was hurting continuously and in my darkest hour, I contemplated and even attempted suicide. In spite of it all, God brought Christian people into my life who brought me hope.  I found Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, when I was 15 and have been serving him ever since.”
In spite of the trials she experienced, music has always been a safe place, a source of inspiration.  She’s a gifted vocalist, songwriter and guitarist and was introduced to the Gospel music industry with her debut release, Level One: Jeremiah 29:11.  After getting her feet wet in the industry with the critically-acclaimed album, she began working on her sophomore release.  The first song from the upcoming project was the catchy and rhythmic track, “B.O.S.S. (Better Off Saving Souls)”.  Another track from the forthcoming project is the stunning worship anthem, “Holy”.  The as-yet-untitled new CD is scheduled to drop in 2015.
Sharetta-Nicole has been recognized for her vocal and musical talents with an Urban Inspiration Award and nominations for Atlanta’s Hottest Gospel Award, the Independent Gospel Artist Alliance Award and the Rhythm of Gospel Award.  She’s been blessed to open up for Canton Jones, Rance Allen, Earnest Pugh and Martha Munizzi.  In September 2014, Sharetta-Nicole was featured on the cover of Single! Magazine.  For more information about Sharetta-Nicole, log on to www.sharettanicole.com.  Connect with her on Facebook (www.facebook.com/sharettanicolemusic) and Twitter (@sharettanicole).
