Pastor Jamal Bryant proclaimed on national TV that he has met his "last lady" in R&B singer "Tweet," eight years after his divorce.
"A year ago I was walking through Times Square going to an Oprah Winfrey movie premiere and I bumped into R&B Singer Tweet, who is my absolute favorite female singer in the world," said Bryant in the final test episode of "The Preachers" on Friday. "And, I pulled an Orrick [Quick] move and asked for a picture. We have grown into an incredible friendship; I call her my 'last lady.'"
Fantasia Barrino has revealed that her love story with husband, Kendall Taylor, began with a fast.
"I did a seven-month fast. For me that was long," she said in an interview and Q&A hosted by AOL last week. "I went without drinking, partying, talking to any guys. That was a bit much for me."
The 32-year-old singer who released her fifth studio album The Definition Of... last week explained that she met her husband after the fast ended. more >>
An Illinois judge will allow for a lawsuit to proceed against the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago over their decision to fire a choir director who's in a gay marriage.
The archdiocese recently filed a motion to dismiss a suit by Colin Collette, a former music director at Holy Family Catholic Community who was fired because he married a man, which is a violation of the Church's employment policy and Church doctrine.
U.S. District Court Judge Charles Kocoras, however, rejected the archdiocese's motion to dismiss and will allow the suit to go forward, according to the Chicago Tribune. more >>
Jesus Culture members Bryan & Katie Torwalt released their new album Champion over the weekend and the popular worship leaders opened up about the rewards and challenges they face being married and working in ministry together.
Champion is the first new album since the Torwalts' last studio release Kingdom Come in 2013. The young couple have been working together in ministry for years. Their debut album Here On Earth produced this year's Grammy-winning song "Holy Spirit" recorded by Francesca Battistelli, which hit No. 1 on the National Audience Chart and is currently a Top 5 CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) song.
"When we wrote that song, it was one of the first worship songs we wrote many many years ago and we had no idea how God would use that song. We had no clue that it would go outside of our little world or even that other people would record it. We had no clue or could even have anticipated it, or replicated it or anything," Katie told The Christian Post. "I don't think that there is a formula. I think that God used it and that's what we needed to declare and sing right now." more >>
Worship leaders Bryan & Katie Torwalt just released their new album Champion and the popular worship leaders share the impact their new worship music has made on them and in some communities already.
The Jesus Culture / Capitol CMG release is the first new album since the husband-and-wife worship duo's last studio release Kingdom Come in 2013. Katie revealed that their new album was done awhile back but they just kept adding songs to it so now is the perfect time for the world to hear it.
"The heart [of Champion] really is about overcoming, and hope, and God being our champion and fighting for us. The song 'Champion' came to me about a year ago and I was just in my room and had been in a season of battling a lot of fear and anxiety in life, irrational stuff and rational stuff. Experiencing some disappointment and some stuff that was out of my control," Katie told The Christian Post. more >>
While a number of Democratic delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia protested Chick-fil-A over same-sex marriage issues, others have sought to explain their decision to buy the fast-food giant's sandwiches despite their opposition.
The Daily Caller reported earlier this week that some delegates, such as Joe Sacco from Nevada, protested against Chick-fil-A being served at the Convention.
"That was just really disappointing," Sacco told The Daily Caller. "I would hope that the DNC would be more sensitive in the future to the LGBT community." more >>
