Kanye is not me. I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture. Again “no Kanye, you’re not good enough”? No. That is a dangerous message I believe we send to the world when our posture is they have to meet certain requirements before they are worthy to kiss the ring. It says people are not redeemable, forgivable or candidates for grace. That my friend is religious. I will not turn my back on my brother. I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he’ll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I’m sorry he’s not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won’t stop me from running. Pray we win.

Erica Campbell x Color Club

image

A new partnership has formed for popular gospel act Erica Campbell, “EC” for nail company Color Club debuts at Circle of Sisters event in New York City at Madison Square Gardens. If you remember in season three of the MaryMary reality show, they had a scene where the ladies were speaking with agencies about new partnerships and endorsements. This is huge success in regards to the gospel community, because most corporate companies especially the beauty industry usually don’t think a gospel artist can bring consumers to buy, however that stereotype is slowly being overlooked. We send our congrats to Erica Campbell on her new venture and her album “Help” is out now!
