Seyi Israel and Eben Release New Single Together “Name Above Everything”!

There is nothing we love more at Good Gospel Playlist than a collaboration between two of our favorite gospel artists. The up and coming star, known mostly for his song “Wetin I Go Give You”, Seyi Israel has blessed us with something new, alas.

Joined by the award-winning artist, Eben, the new song called “Name Above Everything” is sure to fix your focus on the glorious things above. The song relays the complete power and authority that is in the name of Jesus. As believers, we sometimes rely more on the limitations or possibilities that others give us, but this song is a praiseworthy reminder that it is the name of God above everything, and nothing else comes before.

New Single by Seyi Israel and Eben

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:9-11

The lyrics are closely derived from the scripture in Philippians 2:9-11 and extremely influential in Seyi Israel’s walk with God. According to the official CeFLix Tunes report of the new song, the idea behind it comes from a revelation that God gave Seyi Israel,

the same way God has made the name of Jesus a symbol of supernatural power and authority, the singer, Seyi Israel explained how he got the inspiration to talk about the invisible name of Jesus, a revelation that came to him like a river flowing from his spirit.

Seyi Israel performing his new single "Name Above Everything" LIVE with One Sound Gospel

With simple yet profound lyrics, Seyi Israel and Eben identify and call forth the authority and power that rests in the name of Jesus. This song is a reminder that all things are under Him and as we are considered sons and daughters, we call all things under the authority of Christ, as well.

Name Above Everything by Seyi Israel Ft. Eben

At the mention of your name
Every knee must bow
At the mention of your name
Every tongue confess

Name above everything
Name above everything
Name above everything
Name above everything

Your name is Jesus, is Jesus
Your name is Jesus
Name above everything

Gospel Singer Ada Menakaya Releases New Single! “HE HAS DONE IT”

We are in the month of July and according to Christ Embassy and the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, this is the month of Thanksgiving! It appears the Lord has pressed upon many hearts the act and desire to give thanks as Nigerian gospel artist Ada Unoma Menakaya releases her newest single, “He Has Done It”. Something we are all at fault of in the Christian life is losing sight of just how much God has done for us. It is common for people to look at their situations and trust in the things around them, without really recognizing that we have God to thank for all things.

In an interview with Guardian Music, Ada Menakaya described her new hit single as a song of declaration and prophecy:

“He Has Done It is a song of declaration and prophesy that God can do all things if we believe in our hearts without a doubt. This song was written from a place of deep thanksgiving to God for what He has done in my life; it’s a song anybody can relate with.”

Menakaya is very pleased with the positive response and attention she has gained with her new releases and shares with fans of her anticipated plans for a new music video that is still to come! Menakaya thanks her faith-filled upbringing and the unrelenting pursuit of her family to raise her and her five other brothers and sisters in a home filled with gospel music from legends like the Clark Sisters, Whitney Houston, Don Moen and more.

 “Those different styles of music, as well as a strong presence in the church, helped to shape me as a singer as well as a person. There was no time I was left with options of the message to carry. From the start, I just knew it was gospel and gospel alone. I represent Jesus Christ and all I want to do is fly the banner of Christ.” She told Guardian.

Ada even gives a shout out to one of her all-time faves, and ours too! Inspired by LoveWorld artist, Sinach, Ada mentions the strong women in the gospel music industry that are true worshippers of God. Ada lives a life of deep conviction for the Lord and the great pedestal He has given her to share His glorious name in praise and thanksgiving with the world. While it is often chosen by artists to cater to the more secular side of fame for the sake of being more “relevant”, Ada proclaims:

“It is strictly gospel that speaks to everyone regardless of tribe, race or creed, with the sole aim of bringing them to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. My mission is to authentically touch and impart lives and people of all ethnicities and generations around the globe with my music and see the word of God transform and change their lives, binding up the broken-hearted”

Check out this incredible sister’s new music and be inspired to give THANKS to God for everything He does for you – And stay tuned for the upcoming music video that you don’t want to miss!

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.

Verse 1

Don’t glory in man

We have all things in Christ

When Hollywood Hip-hop and Artistry Encounters God

It is always inspiring to see some of the greatest influencers in the world represent Christ on their platforms. If you have been following Good Gospel Playlist for some time, you may recall the famous Sunday Service Hip Hop Concert that captured the attention of music entertainment in America and hip-hop fans around the world. After spending time with friend and fellow artist Chance the Rapper, Kanye West reconnected with God through his relationship with Jesus. West felt compelled to share his faith on the stage and to offer an experience that would connect everyone to his love for God and gospel music.

Since the acclaimed Easter Sunrise service at world-renown Coachella Music Festival, West has channeled much of his new-found spiritual energy into his love of music and connection with people. Hollywood is talking about the on-going Sunday services that have been taking place for the greater part of 2019. Interviews with wife, Kim Kardashian-West and sisters, reveal what conspires at these services. While there is no element of teaching during these gatherings, it is an experience for all to come and connect with God through soul-stirring gospel music.

In the upcoming issue of Forbes magazine for August 2019, titled “Kanye’s Second Coming: Inside the Billion-Dollar Yeezy Empire”, West is featured on the front cover wearing a black hoodie in front of a black frame. He shares about the difficulties and blessings that God has walked him through in his career, bringing him to a more successful and healthier place in his life. In his in-depth profile, West references his diagnosis of bipolar disorder which placed him in the hospital for the latter part of his world tour in the year 2016.

“I’ll be working on home designs and looking at references from 3,000 years ago and reading the Old Testament at the same time so it’s like a soundtrack to the visuals, the shapes and the ideas we are creating. To a lot of my creative friends, I tell them the Bible is better than Pinterest. We can bring something into space and time we exist in while reflecting thousands of years of truth.” Kanye West, Forbes Interview (August 2019)

Kanye West shares in his Forbes interview of the one thing that has gotten him through the trials and tribulations he has faced, from being millions of dollars in debt to the suffering from mental illness. He admits to his submission to Christ by stating that “being in service to Christ, the radical obedience” has brought him through to experience the true blessings in a Christ-centered and Christ-focused life.

Along with wife and TV reality star, Kim Kardashian West, the two are committed to raising their family with reverence and faith in God and His great blessing through Jesus.

Young Boy Goes Viral in America – Gospel Like You Have Never Hear It Before

While gospel music has made its way around most of the greater world well before its peak in popularity in the mid-nineties, the simultaneous rise in social networking and media has changed the game. Artists are recognized internationally and gain a following of listeners from all over the world at the share of one video.

The story goes the same for 12-year-old American boy, Keedron Bryant (Florida). After his parents, Kendric and Johnnetta Bryant posted a video of him singing gospel song “Brand New Life” he became an internet sensation.

“I sang this song ‘Brand New Life’ and then like two weeks later, we had over one million views,” Keedron said. “I need to do this more because this is getting me places that I never thought I would be."

While there is no denying the incredible talent that Keedron has, it is only gospel music that he has ever expressed interest in singing. At such a young age, Keedron knew exactly what he wanted and God has continued to bless him in this path.

 “When I was six, that’s when I knew that I really wanted to sing gospel music…If you just heard the message of a song, you can really understand what you’re listening about and know God’s grace kept you,” Keedron said.

Little did anyone know, the video that caught the world’s attention and posted to FaceBook back in October of 2018 was the very push that God always intended to give him. Knowing what his dream was since he was only six years old, he was ready to go after it with the support of the world behind him, and with God on his side.

Just this week, Keedron had the opportunity to attend the Gospel Choice Music Awards in Georgia, USA. By the favor of God, and the people, Keedron (12) was awarded the Youth Male Vocalist of the Year in the Gospel Choice Music Awards. Through receiving this mentionable award, Keedron was recognized by gospel legend, John P. Kee and so many other artists. Not to mention, the thousands of people who began posting and sharing about him instantly upon their discovery.

Keedron continues to pursue his life dream of being a famous gospel singer and sharing the light and truth with the whole world. Parents, Kendric and Johnetta, are very grateful for the passion their son has for gospel music.

 “He wakes up in the morning signing, he goes throughout the day singing, we’ve got to make him stop singing at night, so he can go to sleep,” Kendric said. “He has put in the work, and he’s truly passionate about it,” Johnetta said.

At only 12 years of age, Keedron is ready to keep pushing towards his dream of being a world renown gospel vocalist. You don’t want to forget this name! You will be hearing it for years to come.
