    One of gospel's most powerful voices, Donnie McClurkin is back with his latest project, "We All Are One (Live In Detroit)." Although McClurkin now pastors a church in New York, Detroit is happy to claim Donnie as our own, based on his 12 years here. Detroiters came out in droves to support his live recording last September at Straight Gate International, which includes tracks with Mary Mary, CeCe Winans, Yolanda Adams, Karen Clark Sheard and others.

    Donald Lawrence is back with his sophomore solo CD that ministers directly to today's trying times. "The Law of Confession, Part I, " is inspired by the forthcoming book "The Law of Confession" by Pastor Bill Winston (Lawrence's pastor at Chicago's Living Word Christian Center).

    While Shari Addison may have come in 2nd-place in BET's Sunday Best competition, her new CD is first rate. The first track, "Whateva," grabs a hold of you from jump, and Shari takes you on a sure 'nuf gospel good time throughout the rest of the project. The CD includes some of gospel's most prominent Grammy and Stellar Award winning producers; Donald Lawrence, Percy Bady, Daniel Witherspoon, and the world reknown Kevin Bond, who wrote "No Battle, No Blessing," the first single from the project. But don't take our word for it, click to listen to snippets from the CD, and we're sure you'll agree that Shari's sincerity and incredible talent shines through in every note.


    With soaring vocals BET's Sunday Best winner Crystal Aikin shows why she is the inaugural winner of this American Idol-type competition for unsigned gospel artists. No longer unsigned, Crystal pulls out all the stops on her first project and displays vocal brilliance on every track from the traditional "Even Me" to the contemporary "He's So Worthy." Notable collaborators on the project include J Moss & PAJAM; Dre & Vidal (Alicia Keys, Usher); Gerald Haddon (Deitrick Haddon, Damita Haddon); Derek Clark (Z’iel); Lamb & TJ; and Asaph Ward
    (Kim Burrell, Maurette Brown Clark). According to Crystal, “It’s a potpourri of musical sounds. And we’ve got something on it for everyone." But you don't have to take our word for it, click to listen to music samples from Crystal's critically acclaimed project and we're sure you'll agree she's the real deal.
