Award Winning Gospel Artist Ted Winn has new music on the way and is inviting everyone to be apart. On Tuesday June 14th, Winn will go live on his Facebook and Periscope social media pages. Those who join him will be given the opportunity to hear his new single, “Grateful“, with Gospel’s newest sensation Maranda Willis.
The single is inspired by the Hawkins family classic, “Be Grateful”, led by the legendary Lynette Hawkins Stephens. Willis who was dubbed as one of Essence Magazine’s, “Gospel Artist to Watch in 2016”, adds her own unique flair while remaining true to the musicality of the original Hawkins version. When asked about recording the song with Winn she states, “It was a joy and honor to work with Ted. It’s such an amazing song and to be able to excerpt from the legendary Hawkins was humbling”.
Grammy Award Winning Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin has kicked off the second leg of his, Twenty Years in One Night Tour. Before going on a brief hiatus, the tour hit several cities across the country and opened to rave reviews. The tour has been filled with special appearances from Tasha Cobbs, Marvin Sapp, Geoffrey Golden, and others. During the Jacksonville stop this past weekend, Franklin gave the microphone to Josiah “Jojo” Martin during his song, “Intercession”.
Martin is a newly signed artist to Grammy Winner PJ Morton’s label, Morton Records, and has been a background vocalist, writer, and producer in the music industry for over a decade. While Martin did his ad-lib parts the song became very personal. For the past three years he’s battled kidney disease and is currently on the waiting list to receive a new one. At the age of 31 the disease has had a profound impact on his health and he’s currently undergoing dialysis treatment.
