Kanye West Not Elected, But He Was Selected (For A Dove)…So Was Social Club Misfits

News flash:  Kanye West has not been elected president.  (Neither has Joe Biden, despite what the slobbering mainstream press would like you to think…but that’s a story for another day).

But, Kanye West has been selected for a Dove Award for Rap/Hip Recorded Song Of The Year, Follow God.

The Blast Blender started playing his new music immediately after his conversion.  The two singles that have gone through half-year rotation as currents so far are:  Closed On Sunday and Hands On (featuring Fred Hammond, Bryson Price Remix).

Social Club Misfits has won the Dove Award for the Rap/Hip Hop Album Of The Year for MOOD /  DOOM.

Remedy Drive’s David Zach Talks About The Fight Against Human Trafficking At The U.S. Capitol

What was Remedy Drive’s David Zach doing at the U.S Capitol this week?  He was speaking to over 200 members of Congress about human trafficking and the band’s fight against it, in partnership with Safe House Project.

“We were honored to have David join Safe House Project at the Capitol and visiting offices of more than 200 members of Congress as we activated cultural leaders, corporations and communities to unite against child sex trafficking in America,”  said Safe House Project CEO Kristi Wells. “David is the embodiment of ‘freedom requires action,’ and we value his deep understanding of this issue that has been learned in the trenches in the fight for freedom. In his undercover work he has seen the horrors of trafficking and uses his art to impact culture and affect change. We have already seen national impact from this event. David was part of a spark that has ignited a wildfire to once again burn the flame for freedom in our country.”

Rapture Ruckus Enjoys Christmas Concert At Home

There’s no place like home.  Especially at Christmas.  Rapture Ruckus was privileged to do a hometown show in Cambridge, New Zealand and they got to spend the holidays on the north island of their home country.  This is especially sweet for a band that spends much of its time touring the United States, which is the biggest market in the world for Christian music.
