Keyshia Cole is making a conscious decision to step away from the negative fodder being dished out on social media and keeping her priorities in order.
Cole, the 33-year-old singer-songwriter, has always been vocal about her struggles in life and even filmed many of them for reality television cameras. While fans have witnessed her reconcile issues with her mother's drug addiction and issues with siblings, Cole recently dealt with marital issues in a very public way off of television screens.
The singer has insinuated that her estranged husband Daniel "Boobie" Gibson was not being faithful in their marriage and the two engaged in a war of words in front of countless fans on social media. Cole realized it was a mistake to air the grievances about her marriage on social media and even took to Instagram to apologize to the public and make nice with her estranged husband for the sake of their son. more >>
Lead singer for contemporary Christian band Casting Crowns, Mark Hall, has been released from the hospital after a successful surgery to remove an "aggressive" form of cancer from one of his kidneys. His wife, Melanie, has called the early detection of the malignant tumor a "miracle."
"Praise the Lord! We are heading home! Wahoo! Mark turned a corner yesterday and had a good night last night. We think we've figured out how to manage his pain at home. He had his first meal today since chips and salsa last Monday night. Time to head to the house," wrote Melanie in a post shared on the band's Facebook page on Monday. The couple was accompanied by members of their student ministry staff.
Hall revealed earlier this month that he was undergoing the surgery to remove a cancerous mass from one of his kidneys. Melanie confirmed in a post on Sunday that the mass in Hall's kidney was not just cancer but an "aggressive" type of cancer that was found following a pathology report. more >>

"In this world that desperately strives to reach new heights and searches for new highs, we thought to debut the 'EMPIRES' album cover as far and as high as we could naturally go.

J. Moss is anything but your typical gospel singer, so it should come as no surprise that he's spearheading a somewhat unconventional tour.
The gospel music singer-songwriter, composer, producer and arranger who was born James Moss released his fourth consecutive No. 1 album, Grown Folks Gospel, late last year. The album was the first to be released on his PMG Gospel independent record label that was formed with his PAJAM production company partners Paul Allen and Walter Kearney.
PAJAM has been creating hits for countless artists including Patti LaBelle, Kirk Franklin, Dru Hill, N'Sync and Karen Clark Sheard for close to 20 years. While most established artists of Moss' caliber prepare to embark on nationwide tours with elaborate tour buses and big ticket sales that fans would pay top dollar for, he decided to do things a bit differently. more >>
Gospel singer and "Mary Mary" reality television star Tina Campbell recently acknowledged her ability to overcome marital problems, including her own "crazy" and "violent" behavior.
A recent episode of "Mary Mary" revealed that Campbell had riddled husband Teddy Campbell's car with bullets in a fit of anger over his multiple extra-marital affairs. Days after the footage aired, Campbell addressed her behavior during her marital woes. The singer, who is one half of the Gospel duo Mary Mary along with her sister Erica, spoke with New York Gospel radio station WLIB about "angry," "crazy" and "violent" reactions before turning to God for direction on her marriage.
"What men think is impossible, with God, all things are possible," Tina explained. "My situation was busted, every other week I finding about someone else - that was devastating. I can sit here and smile because I just want to be happy because it's a choice. I did mad, I did frustrated, I did angry, I did bitter, I did crazy, I did violent, I did all of that, and I remained miserable. But when I turned to God and made a conscious effort to pursue forgiving and letting go, that's where I found my hope." more >>
