Pop Sensation JUSTIN BIEBER Leads Worship and a Sermon at LA Church!

It’s not the first time the world is talking about pop singer and heartthrob, Justin Bieber’s fiery and outspoken faith in God. The young artist has made a conscious effort throughout his music career, since being discovered on YouTube at the age of 13, to share his faith in Jesus openly with the world. Through the ups and downs of adolescence, coupled with the insane amount of stardom and attention he was facing, this world got the best of him along the way.

After marrying the American model, Hailey Baldwin, Bieber began to return to the public eye with unapologetic faith and repentance. He saw his own struggles and trials as an opportunity to glorify the power and love of Jesus that he has continuously returned to. Hailey Baldwin-Bieber was raised in a strong Christian household and supports, champions and encourages her husband in his pursuit of Jesus.

Most recently, Bieber (25) has been taking to Instagram to update fans on his current spiritual awakening, back to reality and back to his eternal purpose of worshipping Jesus. Last Wednesday, on August 27th, Bieber joined the worship team on stage at Churchome in Beverly Hills. In leading his very first sermon under pastor and friend, Judah Smith, Bieber shared about finding strength in weakness and how powerful that strength is when you allow God to intervene.

In the video clip he shared on his Instagram, singing the songs “Never Would Have Made it” by Warren Sapp and “To Worship You I Live” by Israel Houghton, he also included an emotional and encouraging message to fans (the 13th most popular Instagram account, with over 118 Million followers).

In an interview with TMZ, Bieber described why he found this message to be so relevant and necessary for him to share:

“My whole message at church the other day was, there’s power in your weakness. So when you feel weak — there are so many people in this world who are struggling — there’s just power in that weakness. So, when you fight through that season you usually get to the other side, and it gets better,” he said.

The years during university bring such questioning about identity and future plans. There are so many changes happening behind and before you that it can become hard to find where you are rooted. The “Made to Love Concert’ gathered thousands of young adults on July 25th at the LoveWorld Center, University of Port Harcourt (Uniport) in Southern Nigeria. This event came as a beautiful reminder for all students who may have forgotten the complete joy there is to experience in Christ. With several attendants committing their lives to the Lord for the first time, there were several rededications as well. Countless students at the concert experienced and witnessed the Holy Spirit in a fresh way.

John 16:22 “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”

The joy of the Lord was released as the room erupted with praise and dancing. As the glory of God took over the atmosphere in celebration, the presence of the Holy Spirit was overwhelming. Students were blessed beyond belief by the supernatural joy that broke out around the room. LoveWorld favorite, Testimony Jaga entered the stage bringing everyone to their feet for an incredible release of freedom in the Lord to dance and shout His praise.

NEW SINGLE – “Never Go Down” By LoveWorld’s Very Own Pastor Israel

With each new song released in the LoveWorld music scene, comes new depths of joy and pleasure in the Lord. The genre of Gospel music has brought people together from every walk of life and every nation to share in one purpose. The expression of God’s faithfulness comes to life through the words and sounds and all are invited into the sweet revelation of being one in Christ.

In this newest single, “Never Go Down”, Pastor Israel blows us away again with his incredible talent and mastery of bringing people to a position of praise and rejoicing.

Ceflix Tunes referred to the new track saying, “its undertone is imbued with a message of love and faith at the very core, it inspires a lifestyle that yields towards absolute love and trust in Jesus, even in failing and troubling circumstances.”

The song encourages those who may struggle with the understanding that God will never let us down. Even as the world fails us, God is still going to have favor on us. This is also an important reminder to all believers. We sometimes allow the world and the failure of man to creep into our minds and confuse us. Well, we were never promised a perfect world. However, we were promised a God who will sustain us through all imperfections and hardships.

Pastor Israel, also known as PI, brings us to this understanding beautifully and artistically with warm and upbeat sounds of hopefulness in Jesus Christ.

Don’t glory in man

We have all things in Christ

Grammy Award-winning Gospel Choir Jubilation Commemorates “Black Music Month” with 20th Anniversary Reunion Gala

Every year since 1979, the month of June has been recognized internationally, though mostly in the western world, as “Black Music Month”. The month of celebratory recognition and historical enrichment was first established by the 39th United States President Jimmy Carter. It is still widely supported today as President Barak Obama described in his 2016 proclamation, the richness of culture that African-American artists and music have helped America “to dance, to express our faith through song, to march against injustice, and to defend our country’s enduring promise of freedom and opportunity for all.”

After a terrible stroke, Rev. Dr. Stefanie R. Minatee, founder and artistic director of Grammy Award-winning gospel choir ‘Jubilation’, took a break from the choir without knowing when or if she could ever return. Well, God has bigger plans than any stroke or life-threatening incident. As there could not be a more opportune time for the Jubilation Gospel Choir to reunite with their founder, Minatee is back and ready for more of God.

In an interview with Billboard, Minatee shares how grateful she is to be alive and to still be able to spread God’s goodness in her life:

“God kept me here for a purpose. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be alive and still minister. Most stroke victims can’t talk or move, but he spared me. And I want to share with the world what he’s done.”

In honor of this great reunion, the famous gospel choir held a prestigious gala event at their home theater, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, on June 22nd, 2019. Not only was this event held to celebrate 20 years of incredible gospel music, but it was also the very first-time Minatee performed in that theater since before her stroke.

While Jubilation was always known throughout the gospel music scene, it was not until their featured debut on Queen Latifah’s 2009 compilation album called “Oh Happy Day: An All-Star Music Celebration” that the group was officially recognized for and awarded and Grammy. Following this, the group had the incredible opportunity to sing with Latifah in the 2010 Super Bowl. Latifah served as an honorary chair for the Jubilation reunion event, as her mother is a close friend to Minatee and member of the choir.

At the gala, Jubilation performed songs from over six albums and even sang a new song for honored guests called “It’s All About You”. This project captured the complete inspiration and witness of Minatee’s most difficult times since the stroke and how the Lord’s presence was always there for her. She states, “I’m talking on the single as I couldn’t sing the way I wanted to, but it’s a blessing.”

Minatee anxiously prepared for this celebratory night and all the joy that it will bring people. As she was joined on stage by singers from all over the country, she was overwhelmed with the support from all and looks forward to a new inspiring season with her beloved, Jubilation.

Clara Chukwurah Catches the Media’s Eye with New Instagram Post Promoting the Word of God

There is no denying that the Word of God spreads like wildfire. The world today is more exposed to the gospel than any other time in history and it’s not slowing down in any way. Whether its technology reaching the masses or the genuine power of God moving through your communities supernaturally, God is telling us the time to follow Him is now.

While God is touching lives all over the world, Nigeria is especially growing in knowledge and revelation of Jesus. Over the years famous celebrities have confessed a new life in Christ. From Charly Boy to Yul Edochie to Chris Okotie, accepting Jesus and being completely transformed by His love has made the headlines time and again.

80s actress, and mother to music director Clarence Peters, Clarion Chukwurah is our most recent celebrity to have accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. When a brother or sister with such a great influence as Chukwurah joins the kingdom of God, we cannot help but REJOICE! The name of God becomes like a flame that cannot be extinguished as thousands are exposed to the saving power of God through His son, Jesus Christ.

On June 9th Chukwurah took the opportunity to share her testimony on her Instagram page. With more than twelve thousand followers, Clara Chukwurah (as referred to on Instagram) shared the following message of truth:

“My Testimony; As an Actress, I played the role of the Bitch and life was all about Glamour and Glitz, and though I was the Humanitarian, I didn’t realise that with CHRIST there are no half measures. But, Today, HE has saved me – John 3: 16 and like the Apostle Paul – Romans 1: 16 and I will Glorify His Name because HE has empowered me for others to be saved – Acts 1: 8. Jesus Christ is the ULTIMATE…do you know HIM? Are you saved? Do you have a one on one relationship with Jesus Christ today like I do? If so, what is your Testimony?”

Recently, the world has witnessed many stories of people coming to faith through a near-death experience or being physically rescued from something that was threatening them. In the many testimonies of the rich and famous, the commonality is the search for more out of life. When you have tasted all that the world has to offer you, just imagine how quenching the truth is!

These blessed celebrities are using their influence, following, and voice to show the world how much more there is offered in Christ. Join us in praying for all of your favorite icons, that they would be touched by the revelation of God and be truly transformed.

Aretha Franklin’s Live Gospel Album Finally to Reach the Cinema – “Amazing Grace”

On August 16th we will remember one year since Aretha Franklin left our world and imprinted our hearts forever. A day that will remain in history as a day we all lost a bit of soul. Imagining a world of music without such an incredible talent has in no way become any easier with time. She was not only an astounding vocalist, but a lover of many with an infectious spirit, and a timeless icon in gospel music.

Whether you are a believer in Christ or not, some performers carry a sense of godliness in them that comes from their spirit when they sing. Franklin was one of those vocalists that causes you to look to God because of the richness of the soul in everything she did and in each performance.

In 1972, at the age of thirty years old, Aretha Franklin was hosted by the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church of Los Angeles, California for a two-night special performance. However, no one could have believed this would become the biggest selling live gospel album in history. Altogether, the production was set to be a powerful and moving expression of art and media but was left untouched (for the most part) and unseen by most of the world, until now.

The art of Reconstruction

The new film titled Amazing Grace is one of its kind. The phenomenon of mixing media and arts to produce something wonderful that has never been done before is not simply creating something that is new but rather an entire experience that has never been had. Oscar winner Sydney Pollack was brought on to direct multicamera footage of the entire two-day performance, all taking place in the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church.

Due to the quality and abilities of filmography from the early 1970s being much less advanced than what we consider to be ‘workable’ now, the footage sat unedited for decades. It was not until very recently that the correct digital editing technology was even created to reconstruct the footage. Producer Alan Elliot became interested in the project that was becoming more relevant as film production became more advanced.

The Worship Experience

The Guardian describes Elliot’s work on the film by Pollack to capture both the hive of musical activity and fervor or religious ecstasy that thronged through that church all those years ago. There is always a greater sense of intimacy between the artists and listeners when there is a raw visual performance, much like the experience of going to a concert versus listening in your headphones. Amazing Grace brings us directly into the intimacy of that worship experience that took place almost 50 years ago.

Overall, the project is one of its kind that has never been done before. The art of bringing an audience into such an intimate and spirit-filled experience that was had so long ago and giving it new power and strength constitutes an utter masterpiece. The film has had a gradual release, as it has been featured throughout 2018 in various film festivals across the US. It officially released in the UK last week, with additional scheduled releases in other countries throughout the summer. Check out the official trailer for Aretha Franklin’s new tribute film “Amazing Grace”
