Bobbi Kristina Brown has been on life support since Jan. 31, after she was found unconscious in her bath tub; now, her family has decided to have a public prayer vigil to ask for a miracle in Bobbi's life.
"There has been no change," a Brown family member told People. "We are hoping that God will see fit to perform a miracle in her, so that He will get the glory."
Doctors have reportedly said that they do not believe there is more they can do for the 21-year-old, but her family refuses to believe and has stayed by her bedside, singing songs and offering up prayers. Now, though, the family has asked the public to join them in praying for a miraculous recovery for Bobbi. The event will be held at The Amphitheatre at Riverdale Town Center in Riverdale, Georgia. The candlelight vigil, put on by Bobbi's family, is open to the public as a show of support. Bobbi's cousin, Jerod, has taken to Facebook to post the flyer online. more >>
Glen Campbell earned his sixth Grammy Award for the song "Not Gonna Miss You" despite having to miss the awards ceremony on Sunday night.
The iconic country music singer was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 2011 and his condition continues to deteriorate today, making it impossible to attend Sunday's awards. Nevertheless, Campbell's "Not Gonna Miss You" won the Grammy Award for Best Country Song, beating out Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Tim McGraw in the category.
"Not Gonna Miss You" was written for Campbell's documentary, "I'll Be Me," which chronicles his battle against Alzheimer's and its crippling memory loss. The bittersweet love song was written by Campbell and Julian Raymond and is considered the last song for 78-year-old Campbell whose health is rapidly deteriorating. Nevertheless, upon news of Campbell's Grammy win, the singer's wife Kim Wooden reported that her husband is feeling "healthy, content and jovial." more >>
Christian singer/songwriter Jonny Diaz faced a decision this past fall that could have dramatically altered his career in music. After six years in Christian Contemporary Music, and the 2010 #1 hit song "More Beautiful You," Diaz suddenly was getting offers to sign with Country labels.
The reason was the success of a Country song Diaz had written for fun, but had never expected to record, called "Thank God I Got Her." The song, which talks about how Diaz doesn't "get" his wife's idiosyncrasies, but is glad he "got" her, didn't really fit the usual Christian radio format. So, Diaz intended to pitch the song to a Country musician to record.
But then, he started playing the song for live audiences and "the response was just killer," Diaz said. "People kept coming up after shows and asking what CD the song was on." So, Diaz recorded "Thank God I Got Her" and released it to Christian radio stations – where it bombed, reportedly because it was "too Country." more >>

"That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point," Perry told Billboard of her hit song "By the Grace of God." "I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'"
