Mandisa: Singing Freedom's Song

Powerhouse singer Mandisa candidly discusses her serious weight loss program (75 pounds and counting!), God’s commanding mercy in conquering the issues behind the body and how Simon Cowell spawned it all.

Israel Houghton's Not Alone on The Power of One

Anyone who’s worried about not seeing the name New Breed on the spine of Israel Houghton’s new CD need not fret. Thanks in part to a slew of guest collaborators, the singer/songwriter/worship leader is not on his own.

VOTA Relaunches with Self-Titled Project

VOTA has a secret. It’s not really a new band. Formerly known as Casting Pearls, the quartet changed their name in 2008. If their former project was palatable standard fare, then their name change launched standard to stunning.

Esterlyn Keeps a Creative Indie Feel with Meaning

Presenting a creative indie feel without forfeiting tight production and articulate songs, Esterlyn’s Mending the Meaning offers stripped-down guitars, gentle pianos, crisp banjos and textured percussion that beautifully hang on every lyric.
