Listen to New and Noteworthy Voices in Gospel Music
Every week, hosts Mr. Kerry Douglas and Jeff Will shine the spotlight on movers and shakers in the gospel music industry, including new and veteran artists, cultural voices, producers, athletes, and more. Here are just a few of the wonderful individuals we’ve showcased recently.
A veteran of modern gospel music and music education, William Becton has provided the gospel music world with some of the most memorable and powerful songs of the last 30 years, including “Be Encouraged” and “I Told the Storm.” William joined us on Spotlight Night to share with us his newest song “Set Me On Fire,” a song that has been in the making for nearly 40 years. William describes this song as something that was set apart for this specific season of the world, especially coming out of a worldwide pandemic, to bring people back to the heart of worship. Listen to our interview and the song right here on Spotlight Night!
Emerging Gospel Artist Chrysann Moore
This promising new gospel singer from Joliet, Illinois just dropped a new album titled “Cover Us.” Chrysann is the full-package deal — a singer, songwriter, and musician who is also involved in her church’s music ministry. In her words, she “loves God, loves to sing, and loves to make people happy.” What more could you ask for? Oh yes — and she’s a talented organist who can bring you to church and have you tapping your toes in a heartbeat! Watch our quick spotlight of Chrysann and listen to a bit of her track “Thank You Jesus” right here!
Gospel singer Lemmie Battles has shared the stage with the who’s who of gospel music, such as the Chicago Mass Choir and Dr. Bobby Jones. She recently joined Gospel Mix Radio on Spotlight Night to showcase her newest single “I Am Black and I Matter.” Lemmie describes the song as something that was born out of the pain of social injustices in America in recent years. “God created all of us in His image and His likeness,” says Lemmie, “… it’s not about color and it’s not about race, it’s about God’s amazing grace. God wants all of us to stand together, not against each other.” Listen to the full interview and catch a snapshot of her new single right here.
Luther Wardlaw Goes Solo
You may already know songwriter and producer Luther Wardlaw from his work as part of the Wardlaw Brothers, but he recently joined Kerry Douglas and Jeff Will on Spotlight Night to highlight his new single “On The Way.” Currently pursuing a solo project, Luther told us that he has “a message and a testimony that I just got to tell a different way.” The result is a new solo venture for a season before rejoining his crew in The Wardlaw Brothers. Watch our talk with Luther and get a sneak peak at his new single right here on Spotlight Night!
