Fans of the late Whitney Houston will get to see what the beloved singer's life was like before she reached international stardom in an upcoming documentary that delves deep into her roots in the Church where her singing career started.
"The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures, she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years," said Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland," "Marley"), who will be directing the documentary to Rolling Stone magazine. "She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don't traditionally sell."
While the film is still untitled, it will take an authentic look at Houston's life from the church choir to pop stardom. The documentary will reveal interviews with Houston's friends, family and collaborators who were along for the ride. Houston died in 2012 due to a reported drug overdose. more >>
Donnie McClurkin is back with his first new song since 2014 and the Grammy Award winning gospel singer is already making waves with one of the most added songs on gospel radio stations.
The three-time Grammy Award winner with 11 Stellars and three Doves under his belt released his latest single "I Need You" as an "earnest expression" of his faith, says a statement shared with The Christian Post.
The song is the first since McClurkin's 2014 DUETS album which he collaborated on with artists Dorinda Clark-Cole, Tina Campbell, John P. Kee, Marvin Sapp and Tye Tribbett. And now, his latest work is serving as a precursor for the gospel singer's upcoming seventh solo album, for which a name and release date has yet to be announced. more >>

It's every parent's wish once their children begin to grow up that time would just stand still so they have a little more time with their sweet, innocent babies. Well worship artist Nichole Nordeman shares that sentiment and her new song "Slow Down" is a timely Mother's Day plea to children everywhere.
Since posting the video "Slow Down" on her Facebook page, Nordeman received more than 4.3 million views within just 72 hours. That number has since doubled and is certainly not living up to its title.
The music video features home footage of Nichole's family as well as from some of her close friends and their families. Singer Laura Story and her three children also make cameos throughout the video. more >>
