Tyscot Records Announces New Signing, Melissa Bethea

If the voice of Melissa Bethea sounds familiar, maybe you’ve heard it on JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise tracks such as “No Holding Back” or the Top 30 hit, “You Are Worthy.” Now, fans can hear her on her own, as the New Flavor Entertainment production duo of Clarence Singleton and Eric Davis, and Tyscot Records have partnered to release the Newark, Jersey native’s poignant new track, “You’re Coming Out” (New Flavor Entertainment /Tyscot). It was written by Singleton, a seasoned songwriter and producer (Byron Cage, Marvin Sapp, Hezekiah Walker), and Davis, a producer who’s co-written a dozen of J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise’s big radio hits such as “After This”, “Lord of All”, and “Resting on His Promise.”



“This song is my personal testimony about overcoming infertility,” Bethea says of the power ballad. “Five years into our marriage, my husband, Joseph, and I tried to have a baby. The first trimester there was no heartbeat. Then, it happened again, and I had a miscarriage. I said to myself, `Lord, why can’t I carry a child?’ Then, God told me that He’d give me a miracle in six months. Nothing happened for six months. At the end of that six months, I finally got pregnant and eventually had my daughter, Jade, who will be three years old in November. She’s, my miracle.

”Meanwhile, the talented trio is hard at work on Bethea’s first full-length album. “I believe the album will be used to encourage, uplift, and inspire,” she says. “So many people need hope because they’ve lost so much with this pandemic This is going to refresh, revive, renew, and point people to Jesus.” Listening

It’s Okay


I used to think it was better to bottle up my feelings, because it was the best way of dealing.

Curled up in my bed staring at the ceiling, instead of letting go and let my wounds get healing.

I was told if i hid my pain it will be for my own gain but all it did was drain me.

Then i came to a realization that I am God’s creation. He said i will have tribulation but it’ll be for a little duration.

Because he overcame the world i am free from condemnation. So i will no longer restrain these feelings but rather release and feel peace.

It’s okay to cry I’m human not super human so if that’s what i must do to move on and smile I would and accept it as my new Lifestyle.

 

My Past, My Present.

  i’m over it, not anymore, I’m better now those words have become too familiar because I’ve said them too many times trying to convince myself i was delivered.


Tears I’ve wept those same reasons have crept like all i did was neglect when truly they never left. It feels like my suppressed truth won’t let me be who i want to be, won’t let me grow the way i want to, won’t let me experience true happiness the way I’ve always pictured it because all I feel is on the surface not from within.


I keep striking out when I know i am the one who needs healing. Somehow my past have intertwined with my future leaving me feeling like i need to be sutured. I feel like i am broken in a thousand pieces needing some adhesive.


Might sound just a little redundant but I know that one physician who is there for me in abundance even though half the time I feel like i have been abandoned.


This might seem a bit random but who says the things from the past never comes back to haunt you?

What is coming is better than what is gone!!!

I wrote this piece when I was feeling a little down and needed some encouragement. My pastor always says sometimes you have got to encourage yourself and not wait for people to encourage you.

So, if you are feeling down, or lost, or feel like there is no getting better from whatever situation you are in at the moment, remember what is coming is better than what is gone. Happy reading.

  Good things happen to bad people while good people are stuck being crippled.
They struggle and cross huddles to understand the puzzle of why they are stuck in  this battle. People say encouraging words to help ease the unease.

They say it will get better but what if better is never? They say have a little faith but what if faith is an eternity of wait? Then they say trust in God and all of a sudden it was like they had pushed the right  button.

 God is the all sufficient and is ever efficient. Let’s take job for example he is just the  perfect sample. Just because you are going through ordeals doesn’t mean God isn’t real. You just need to  kneel before him and believe he will heal your grieve.

The devil is nothing but a thief, the king of all mischief.
But let me tell you God is king over all kings.
So sing, for what is coming is better than what is gone.

Challenges of A Christian Teenager

   When you hear teenager you probably think rebellious, rude, obnoxious, etc because that’s how they get at that age right?  Do you ever think of why they get that way? Teenagers face a lot when they get to a certain age. They feel different emotions, have experience at school, with friends, etc. They  keep all of that inside and find other ways to get it out.

    Despite the fact that teens have that “I don’t need you” attitude, parents shouldn’t just assume they’re alright. They should spend quality one on one time with their kids from time to time because teens are constantly looking for a secure ground to stand, and if parents don’t act as their “anchor”they will find it some where else.

     As a teenager, there are things your parent talk to you about vs things you find out from the internet. There are things you would rather find out from friends who don’t know jack but think they do, rather than your parents. Now this might sound ridiculous, but there is a difference between being a teenager and being a teenager in a christian home.

         I grew up thinking when a boy touches me, i’d get pregnant (thanks to my aunt Bose). Waking up early hours of the morning for prayers (which i absolutely hated but appreciate now lol), and not allowed to have male friends because my dad will have a fit. I love my dad to death, but he was too damn strict!

      Now I have these feelings i don’t understand for a boy but I cannot talk to my parents about it because they are, permit me to say “too spiritual” I mean how do I even go about it?  i don’t even have male friends! This was one of my experience growing up and being a teenager.

  Imagine this day and age! There is more than just feelings for a boy. I mean things you find on the internet! There is pornography, peer pressure, substance abuse, you name it. How do they deal with all of these? Wanting to be part of the “cool kids” so they don’t eat lunch alone, vulnerable to so much peer pressure. Parents not wanting to have the “sex talk” and expect their teenagers wont have questions,  that’s some fairy tale right there.

       As a christian teenager, a lot is expected from you. You sorta know right from wrong, but you are expected to make all the right decisions, not get in trouble, have good grades, read the bible, have the best company  of friends, etc.

      My advice/thought to parents with teenagers is listen to them. When they are acting up they are actually trying to say something. Don’t start quoting the bible just have a normal conversation, make them feel comfortable to talk to you, be less judgmental with your comments but at the same time guide them through the right path make them know they can come to you rather than the internet or that know it all friend.

  The bible states in Proverbs 22:6 , Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. That same bible says in Colossians 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.

    I am not a parent, but i was once a teenager and as a teenager all I wanted was to be able to talk to my parent, share my thoughts, allow them explain things that made me curious, not being scared but feeling like I could talk to them about anything because most of the time that was what I wanted.

    I don’t want it to look like I am starting to rant so I will stop here. Drop your comments and thoughts below Ciao!

 

Let’s Talk About Underrated Gospel Artist!!!

Growing up, I listened to the likes of Sammie Okposo, Keffee, TY Bello, Panam Percy Paul, Ayefele and Tope Alabi. Yes, Tope Alabi! Tope Alabi is one of the underrated powerful gospel artists. Not only does she have a unique style, she also has an angelic voice that literally pierces through your soul.

Tope Alabi also known as Ore ti o common, and as Agbo Jesu was born on the 27th October 1970 in Lagos State, Nigeria to Pa Joseph Akinyele Obayomi and Madam Agnes Kehinde Obayomi. She is the only daughter out of the three children in the family. she hails from Yewa, Imeko of Ogun State. Tope Alabi pursued her educational attainment with seriousness and dedication as it deserved. Between 1982 to 1984 during her secondary school days, her interest in music and drama led her to join the then “Jesters International” (Jacob, Papilolo & Aderupoko) group at Ibadan, where she got her initial training and experience in drama. She worked with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) Ibadan as a correspondent under the supervision of Mr. Yanju Adegbite, between 1990 & 1991. She also worked with Center-spread Advertising Limited, Ilupeju area of Lagos in the year 1991 – 1992. After having various work experiences, Patricia Temitope Alabi came back into the theatre Art profession as she joined the prestigious “Alade Aromire Theater group” in 1994. There, she was able to distinguish herself as a gifted and talented actress and singer.

I was visiting a friend the other day and she raised the topic of how underrated Tope Alabi was and at first, I was like that is not true! turns out, it is kind of true. You hear a lot about artist such as Nathaniel Bassey, Tim Godfrey, etc. being invited to come and minister in churches but not very often do you hear of Tope Alabi being invited to a church program.

Did you know Tope Alabi has composed over 300 soundtracks for Yoruba films? Or that she has over 11 albums and 32 singles that will take you to another level of worship? (at least I think so). All her song I believe are hits back to back! Her latest album is titled Yes and Amen, and contains 12 tracks. It is definitely one you must listen to.

One of the things I like most about Tope Alabi’s song is her ability to put a story in a song.  Not just any story, but one with actual life lessons. Yes, she sings in Yoruba, but we all have that Yoruba friend that can interpret for us. Also, she incorporates English as well.

Although Underrated, she is one you should listen to while driving home, eating, having a chill day or even a stressful one!

If you all are as curious as I am you must be wondering why she is not getting the recognition she is clearly deserves. Could it be because of her unique style? Could it be because social media have a specific standard for promoting artist and think she doesn’t meet that standard? Or could it be because she doesn’t conform to rules society have made when it comes to the music industry?

These are questions I want you all to think about and also open your mind to accepting “different” not just in the music industry but even beyond.

How Preye Odede’s Forthcoming Single “Idinma” Is Causing A Buzz Before Release

 

 

Preye Odede is set for the release of the much talked about single “Idinma” (You are Good).

For about a week, the “Oshimiri Atata” singer’s social media has been buzzing with fans from all over the world translating “Idinma” which means “You are Good” in various languages.

Friends and fans from Zambia, Portugal, Senegal, Congo, Ghana, Cameroon and more have all taken turns to translate “Idinma” to their languages, hence, the song has been trending even before its official release.

On Instagram,  @rita_riri87 from Zambia translated “Idinma as “Wali wama.”

“Deus es Bom,” said @jackie_kassan from Porto, Portugal.

“Oza malamu,” translated @priscamwinja in the Bantu language of the Northern parts of Congo.

Preye Odede also shared a snippet of the song on his social media. He didn’t leave many hints but from what is gathered, the song is a worship song laced with a steady rhythmic Eastern High Life groove.

“May only God goodness be your testimony this November and beyond. Welcome to your month of goodness. Idinma is almost here,” Preye said.

The song was produced by Paulpiano.

The Untold Chronicle Behind Preye Odede’s Wave-Making Single “Oshimiri Atata”

 

The ministry of Preye Odede will always remain distinct and cannot be replicated. You have some artiste that only come ones in a generation. The likes of Whitney Houston, Nath King Cole, Michael Jackson, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Sinach, Joepraize to name a few… and of course, there is Preye Odede!

Specially anointed for such a time as this, God’s out-poured life embodied in a humble vessel that contrasts the magnitude of gift and anointing that is contained therein, Preye Odede combines aesthetics with anointing and the results are life transforming songs that have left their indelible marks in the sands of this generation, spiraling into undeniable testimonies, ricocheting all over the world!

When Preye Odede put out his debut album “My Script” in 2012, “Ebezina” stood out and infiltrated the core of Gospel Music till date. Speaking with Cool FM OAP, Jibike in 2014, he said he wrote “Ebezina” in the “middle of serious hardship. At a point where we were thrown out of our house and rendered homeless… in 2009.”

“Bulie” was a follow up on the success of “Ebezina”. The video has garnered over 2 million views on Youtube – Preye’s channel alone. He featured a remix of the single in his 2017 sophomore album titled “Ready” and collaborated with UK based Ghanaian Gospel artiste, the critically acclaimed Sonnie Badu of “Baba” fame.

“I Am Real” shot by video director Patrick Elis in the USA presented Preye Odede in new light in terms of his brand. As the distinctive nature of his ministry attained zenith height, it couldn’t be business as usual… literally. Preye’s releases, presentations, PR strategies and overall outlook took a new turn as well!

He announced his sophomore album with the rapturous worship/supplication song with the title “Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry)”. The song which critics have said, rivals the effort of “Ebezina”, although there are similarities speckled all through both songs, received wide acceptance within and outside the country, so much that when the “Ready” album finally dropped, it’s still one of the songs that stood out. He recently ministered the single in COZA, Abuja at Voltage Warship with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and the atmosphere was electric! Pastor Fatoyinbo described the ministration as “an amazing time of worship!” 

Taking a look at the transformation Preye Odede’s life and ministry has experienced – before and after the debut album “My Script”.  The amazing grace that came to his rescue did not transform his life and left him at the point but he has gone from grace to grace ever since. One will agree that the only appropriate outburst is “Oshimiri Atata (River that never Runs Dry).”

Talking about the journey so far and the future expectations, Preye Odede said:

“I don’t look like my past because of God’s grace and mercy … At times when you are down and weary, draw strength from God, who is the fountain that never runs dry and with that river ever flowing, I am certain that God is set to supersede the present and do endless wonders in your life.”
