Top 10 Ur­ban Gospel - Mr. C.

Hello again DTM Uni­verse! This is your boy Mr. C back at you with my Top Ten artists to watch out for. In ad­di­tion, I am here to give some in­sight on some of the things that are hap­pen­ing in the world of Ur­ban Gospel Mu­sic. Check out th­ese artists: The first thing that I am ex­cited to talk about is the most re­cent up­dates on con­tem­po­rary wor­ship artist Jake Hughes. His pres­ence in this genre is grow­ing. You may know him for songs such as “Get Up” and “I Lift My Hands.” He has been trav­el­ing and mak­ing more ap­pear­ances this year. In fact, he was a fi­nal­ist on the Prayze Fac­tor Peo­ple’s Choice Awards Plat­form this past Septem­ber. With all of this mo­men­tum that he has, he is plow­ing full steam ahead to work on his al­bum en­ti­tled “Jake Hughes Pre­sents The Art Of War.” El­der Jake has ev­ery in­ten­tion of mak­ing a heavy im­pact with this next project. In fact, he said the fol­low­ing: “The world and de­monic sys­tems are try­ing to turn up in this world. It’s time for the peo­ple of God to turn things up and go even higher and be a king­dom in­flu­ence on a whole other level.” Be ready to sup­port his cause and be look­ing out for this project. The Voices of Gospel Mu­sic Awards took place in Mo­bile, Alabama on Septem­ber 9th and 10th. Some of the dis­tin­guished guests of this in­au­gu­ral event were Rev. Luther Barnes, Earnest Pugh, Ted Winn, Greg O’Quinn, and Neece Trott. Rev. Gary D. Johnson de­sired that this event would be Christ cen­tered, and elo­quent. It ap­pears that he de­liv­ered ac­cord­ing to the feed­back re­ceived. It is so great to hear that the body of Christ can un­der­stand that ex­cel­lence is as­so­ci­ated with the Gospel. Speak­ing of ex­cel­lence, some of the win­ners at the VOGMA’s were Emanuelle Young (New Artist of the Year), 2 Is Bet­ter Than 1 (Youth Artists of the Year) , and a voice you need to be look­ing out for is BJ McKen­zie (Male Vo­cal­ist of the Year), among oth­ers . There is al­ready word thatt the or­ga­niz­ers of this great event are work­ing to­wards an even bet­ter suc­cess story for 2017. I will keep you posted on the de­vel­op­ments of what evolves. I want to con­grat­u­late Dee Black, as his la­bel “HISs­tory Mu­sic Group” is con­tin­u­ing to grow. Over the sum­mer, there def­i­nitely was a buzz when he signed CHH vet­eran Mouth­piece. HMG took it a HUGE step fur­ther, and signed DJ Sean Blu, who will be the house DJ and artist for the la­bel. I reached out to the CEO of HMG to ask him about his out­look and he said “HISs­tory Mu­sic Group is more than just a la­bel. We will set the stan­dard for lyri­cal ex­cel­lence cen­tered on the Gospel! Our mis­sion is to glo­rify God through art and en­ter­tain­ment. We will cre­ate our own in­dus­try stan­dards and do busi­ness with in­tegrity, while fol­low­ing bi­b­li­cal prin­ci­ples.” I am ea­ger to see what tran­spires as Dee Black leads this new, but great la­bel into the fu­ture. Se­ri­ous PPL Mu­sic Artist Se­ri­ous Voice has re­leased her new sin­gle and the video for the song “Mind Games,” fea­tur­ing Caribbean Gospel Artist Mar­shall One. This is her 2nd sin­gle re­leased from her al­bum “Sho­far,” and can be pur­chased on dig­i­tal plat­forms such as iTunes and Google Play. If you would like to book Se­ri­ous for ap­pear­ances of any kind, feel free to visit www.sose­ri­ous.net or con­nect with her la­bel on Twit­ter @se­ri­ousp­plmu­sic. Now, I am ex­cited to talk about what I call “The Play­offs of Ur­ban Gospel Mu­sic,” which is Mr. C’s 5th An­nual Top 40 Count­down. Chris­tian Hip Hop, Rhythm & Praise, Con­tem­po­rary Wor­ship, and Caribbean Gospel of great artists from all over the world will be put on a bal­lot. Your vote will count for this one and you will have a voice. This event will be held from De­cem­ber 28th - De­cem­ber 31st, and it will be re­vealed who had some of the hottest tracks for the year 2016. Keep up with the de­vel­op­ments of this event by visit­ing face­book.com/live­withmrc and Twit­ter @mr­c_live. Well, that is all I have for now. You never know what de­vel­op­ments will sur­face next. I look for­ward to pro­vid­ing you with new up­dates about Gospel Mu­sic on the next go round. God bless you. DT
