ARAMIDE – New Single OUT NOW! “I’m A Winner” (2019)

The naturally talented and passionate gospel vocalist, Aramide, is releasing new songs of truth, hope and soul this year. Aramide is back with a new 12-track album for her fans and has just released a new single called “I’m A Winner”.

“I’m A Winner”, produced by GeeMagik, is a song that exemplifies the conviction that Aramide has to live a victorious life as a Christian, believing and claiming her ability to conquer anything with Christ on her side. The song invites all listeners to join and dance in the joyous reality that we are all winners, not losers, in fellowship and partnership with God.

In an interview, Aramide shared her life inspiration behind writing the song ‘I’m A Winner’: “When things happen to me, it is the mindset I work with, every time I face challenges in life and I was like I am better off putting it in lyrics and song to build others up or be a blessing to other people. I know there are lots of people out there that need the assurance of who they are in Christ. Life may throw things at you, guess what? You are a WINNER”!! No matter what comes your way, you are victorious! It may not look that way but at the end you will WIN”.

Aramide has been with Christ Embassy since her humble beginnings in the University Fellowship Campus Choir of Believers’ LoveWorld (1995). She has continued to embrace the genre of Gospel music and Afro-Soul, as she hopes her lyrics would be a love service to her fans. By singing in the Spirit and using her inspiration from real life be the driving force behind her relatable and praiseworthy lyrics, her fans are in for something surely incredible with this new album.

We are reminded of the truth that we are all winners with Christ on our side in Romans 8:31-37, which reads:

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

‘For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

This music will uplift your soul and embrace your godly identity found in Christ. We are proud of Aramide as she represents Christ, as well as the LoveWorld Nation and the Man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.

Award Winning Gospel Collaborative Project – Wilsongs by Dr. Wilson Muwanguzi

Music is a powerful source that can play a huge part in your mood, which can affect your whole day. Music can either be used to energize or to relax. It is also used as self-expression, both in creating as well as in sharing. Our capabilities for making and listening to music are constantly advancing and becoming more and more a part of our everyday life, although it’s been a centralized point throughout history and culture since the beginning of time.

Knowing that music has such a strong effect on our mindset, we can always use it to refocus ourselves and our attention to God and His ways. When we listen to Spirit-filled music, our eyes return to the Lord and we become instantly strengthened, as we claim the promises of God, singing them over ourselves and our situations.

One ministry that has grasped the true power that Spirit-filled music has over our situations and mindset is the ministry of Wilsongs, founded by Dr. Wilson Muwanguzi. After experiencing the overwhelming benefits and blessings that gospel music brings, Dr. Wilson was ready to create this experience for believers all around the world. He recently sat down with Uganda Christian News to share about their ongoing project. With leaders of the industry all around the world, ‘all bound by a common goal of giving a voice for the generation that is passionate about God and addressing society needs’. Dr. Wilson’s dream to see a generation penetrated by the power of God-inspired music began to manifest.

This project reaches beyond all barriers of culture, style, denomination, and genre to satisfy and uplift all believers from every walk of life. Holy Spirit inspired lyrics not only encourage and uplift, but they lead us to be knowers of God’s Word, which produces teachers of God’s Word.

Wilsongs at Viga Music Awards by: Uganda Christian News

The Wilsongs group has received several awards over the course of their ministry work and most recently on May 31st at the Viga Music Awards ceremony in Kampala, in Uganda where they are based out of. Wilsongs group was the recipient of the Best Duo/Band/Group of the year, and Dr. Wilson received recognition for the Afri-Song Artist of the year 2019 award.

Dr. Wilson took the time to sit down with Uganda Christian News to share his thoughts on all the buzz:

“Winning at the Viga Music Awards 2019, has been a miracle of its kind: it came at a time when we had just released our new songs; “Yuza Eggulu”, ” Saawa Ya Kubotola”, “Waliwo Abisobola”, “Mulimu Ekipya” and “Praising You Jehovah (Tenda)” yet they had not yet received as much acclamation as expected, even though Wilsongs is generally loved within and across borders…. While winning awards is not the major aim, with this victory GOD has literally lifted us miles into the sky. We feel like stars shining high and bright. Surely; in such a time.”

“I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so, shall I be saved from my enemies.”

Psalm 66:1-4

“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: sing forth the honor of his name: make his praise glorious. Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. All the earth shall worship thee and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah”

Psalm 35:27-28

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all day long.”

Psalm 150:3-6

“Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with psaltery and harp. Praise Him with the timbral and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord, Praise ye the Lord.”

Psalm 146:1-2

“Praise ye Lord. Praise the Lord, O my soul. While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.”

When the powerful Word of the Lord has all the authority in Heaven and on Earth, how can we help but sing of His praises all the time?

#BETSundayBest is back!

You have probably heard the names Kierra Sheard, Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, Bebe and Cece Winans, and Kirk Franklin. But what do all these incredible talents have in common? Black Entertainment Television (BET) Gospel music singing competition called Sunday Best is hosted and judged by each one of these brilliant artists and personalities. BET released the first episode of the inspiring reality series in October of 2007.

http://myhoustongospel.com/2019/01/bet-sunday-best-to-return-spring-2019/

Since the original release date, the series has produced and aired eight consecutive seasons. Sunday Best was on the air, and doing well, through the summer of 2015. Finale winner, Dathan Thigpen, was a familiar face to all who were following the competition from the 3rd season. Though Thigpen was voted off at the time, he returned to give the competition his all in the final season – he took the stage and all of our hearts! The series rounded out with an overwhelming response from fans and such a strong presence of God, as all glory and praise throughout the competition was given to Him.

After taking what was thought to be their final bow, judges and host, Kirk Franklin never would have imagined the competition to start up again for a ninth season. Yet, here we are. It is 2019 and BET recently announced the show’s return to the network, coming June 2019. You can expect some familiarity but look out for a total revamp of the complete design and production. Judges will include, again, the one and only Erica Campbell from Mary Mary, along with Kelly Price and Jon McReynolds.

While each season has started out with ten contestants in the past, the new season will gather a group of twenty aspiring Gospel singers from all over the world. The audition locations include Dallas, Atlanta, Johannesburg, and London. You can expect to see amazing talent come out, from both near and far. With so many other reality television programs clouding the networks today, it is encouraging to see the Lord’s name lifted high in the media, across so many varying audiences. These upcoming stars will be recognized and known for their praise, and while the competition will be strong between the contestants, God is the One to receive all the glory.

Make sure to get caught up if you have not yet seen the older seasons and tune in on June 30th for the premiere of season 9! Watch Sunday Best on BET every Sunday night and vote for your favorite Gospel singers. In previous seasons, the winner received a national recording contract, a cash prize and the esteemed title of “Sunday Best”. It has not yet been confirmed if the rewards will be the same for the winners this time around, but we are sure it will be something you do not want to miss!

If you want to follow the performances and updates on Instagram and Twitter, check out #BETSundayBest and don’t forget to vote!

The best way of course to do that is to play some good old Christmas tunes. These 5 delightful jingles will warm up your heart, uplift your soul and sprinkle you with some much needed Christmas spirit.

Whitney Houston- Joy to the World

Whitney Houston has been blowing us away for decades. The legendary superstar’s beautiful rendition of the Christmas carol ‘Joy to the World’ is deeply moving and guaranteed to bring in that magical Christmas feeling. Houston recorded the song for the 1996 film, The Preacher’s Wife, a film in which she also acted. The carol is so popular in fact, that it has been recorded by many other world-famous artists, such as Boney M, Mariah Carey, and even the Jonas Brothers. 

Mariah Carey- O Holy Night

Every Christmas this songbird delights us with her legendary holiday hits. This song is of course from her classic Christmas album of 1994, Merry Christman. This album is full of beautiful covers of our favorite carols such as ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, ‘Silent Night, Christmas’ (Baby Please Come Home) and much more. While Carey gives her own special twist, this song is actually centuries years old and was originally written in French! The song was also, according to the Canadian inventor, Reginald Fessenden a pioneer in radio broadcasting, the live broadcast of a song in history.

Brenda Lee- Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Johnny Marks, the prolific Christmas songwriter is famous for his many Christmas hits such as “Holly Jolly Christmas ” and ” Rudolph The Red – Nosed Reindeer. ” This song was first released in 1958. Brenda Lee’s rendition, however, is one has been cemented in history. In a 2006 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Lee explained that she recorded this in July with Nashville producer Owen Bradley, saying “Owen had the studio all freezing cold with the air conditioning, and he had a Christmas tree all set up to kind of get in the mood just a little bit. We had a lot of fun.”

Holy Holy Holy – Kurt Carr

The American gospel music composer and performer actually served as a Minister of Music at The First Baptist Church of Hartford in Connecticut. The artist certainly has Jesus’s love running through his veins. The singer, however, did not grow up in a spiritual family at all, yet at 13, felt drawn to the church, and of course church music. There, together with the help of his acting chops, he developed in his school theatre class, and his passion for the Gospel, Carr turned into one of the most inspiring gospel performers of all time. His song Holy Holy Holy is perfect on a Christmas Eve.

Reason for The Season, Patti LaBelle

The famed Patti LaBelle, once considered by some to be Aretha Franklin’s rival, belts out her heartfelt take on the song ‘The Reason for the Season’. LaBelle’s Christmas album is filled with smooth and uplifting tunes that are guaranteed to light up your hearts and usher in the festive holiday spirit. It is the perfect mix between soulful praise and joyous holiday melody that only Patti LaBelle can pull off.

Little Drummer Boy – Pentatonix

This award-winning a capella group gives a fresh new take on one of the oldest Christmas carols of our time. The five-member group aptly named the Pentanonix specializes mostly in covering Christmas songs by harmonizing beautifully orchestrated vocal arrangements and beatboxing. The band was formed only in 2011 and has already snatched up a bunch of Grammies, and various other internet-based awards, such as the YouTube Awards and the Streamy Awards, an award  that recognizes in online video production
