#GENMTER: Gospel Encyclopedia New Music Tuesday Entertainment Report @MRAWarren Week of 04-30-13


  • I think @KevinVasser is mad cool. So, I begin this report apologizing for not mentioning his single Only You Can Deliver last week. #GENMTER


  • @KevinVasser is an amazing talent and has served well. He is a part of the team at Fellowship in Chicago that brought you #Awesome. #GENMTER


  • His previous work on EMI, his current project scheduled to be released on Malaco Records. @KevinVasser #GENMTER



  • I really wish my scheduled allowed me to be in Philly this weekend for the Sweet Rain Records reunion concert. #GENMTER


  • As Gospel music lover and specifically a choir boy, I loved the product they released. #GENMTER


  • I loved Barbara Ward Farmer, the Savettes, Wilmington Chester, Southeast Inspirational, @HezekiahWalker and on and on… #GENMTER


  • Of course they released product on the Greater Highway Church, Polk County Mass, the Voices from Beth El in B-more… #GENMTER


  • These records shaped my view of Gospel because of the hands on opportunity Bishop Andrew Ford & producer Steven Ford gave me early. #GENMTER


  • The Sweet Rain reunion is in honor of the 60th Birthday celebration for Bishop Andrew Ford. #GENMTER


  • I’m glad to @McDonalds has committed to do another summer tour for Gospel music.




  • Whether she’s telling jokes or belting a tune, @vickiewinans remains touchable to her audience & ministers thru her life changes. #GENMTER


  • I’ve said it B4, @Keetwit has always used his celebrity as a platform 2 build other talent. This has caused him 2 span generations. GENMTER


  • The discography of his own works is deep, but when you add his guest appearances, u can spend a lifetime collecting his music. @Keetwit #GENMTER


  • I’ve noticed that there are a lot of independent projects available in the digital space. Many which seem to a clear marketing plan. #GENMTER


  • Today, @RadioRobyn and I talked about the flood of music that comes to radio stations packaged nicely that never gets played. #GENMTER


  • Young artist you spend a lot of money recording, even packaging, and definitely shipping to radio. Follow up! @RadioRobyn #GENMTER


  • It actually will help the influence of Gospel over all if you are committed to the movement of the music vs. the badge of having it. #GENMTER


  • Even though we’ve moved to increased sales because of digital placements, if you’re not selling, you’re clogging the highway. #GENMTER


  • For every product that doesn’t sell on holds a space to make the requirement harder the next go around for others to get in. #GENMTER


  • I support ministry whole-heartedly & your ministry needs an opportunity 2 shine. However, let’s work at being business stewards. #GENMTER


  • True there isn’t enough space on radio 4 all the music, but at least follow up w/ the station. Commit 2 make ur presence known. #GENMTER


  • Create a plan to make sure people know your project is available whether it be in the digital space or brick and mortar. #GENMTER
