Country crooner and "The Voice" judge Blake Shelton takes a departure from mainstream radio to release what he calls a very "important" gospel song as he gears up to release his upcoming album, If I'm Honest.
His new single, "Savior's Shadow," is a heartfelt country hymn.

The American Library Association has revealed that the Bible is among the books most often challenged and called to be banned in libraries.
"You have people who feel that if a school library buys a copy of the Bible, it's a violation of church and state," said James LaRue, who directs the Office for Intellectual Freedom for the American Library Association, according to The Associated Press.
"And sometimes there's a retaliatory action, where a religious group has objected to a book and a parent might respond by objecting to the Bible." more >>

"It doesn't need an explanation. I know the truth and I think when you have friends and loved ones that know the truth, and you know that, God defines who I am, you know what I mean?" Bailon said on a recent episode of "The Real," where she is one of the hosts. "I think God knows my heart. God knows the situation and I think that I can rest in that."
