Grace and Peace Family,
As we settle into this new year, we must believe not only do our words have power, but whatever we put our hands to do will be powerful and it will attract. Attraction can be inspiring and RCA Inspiration (formerly Verity Records) is moving progressively with its gospel artists and the Holy Ghost taking the ministry to higher heights.
Let’s start with living legend Bishop Marvin Sapp. He has collectively received 24 Stellar Awards, two Soul Train Music Awards, two BET Awards, three Dove Awards and eight BMI Songwriter’s Awards along with many other accolades and honors from national, regional, and local institutions. He is preparing to do a live recording at his new church, The Chosen Vessel Cathedral in Ft. Worth, TX on Friday, February 21 at 7pm. This will be Sapp’s first recording since 2011’s I Win. The project is truly a labor of love. “This recording is special to me because I’m doing it in my new home—literally and figuratively,” Sapp explained. “I never imagined that I would live and pastor in the DFW Metroplex, and now that I am here, I can’t wait to continue to connect with the community and immerse my church into this side of my ministry through this live recording,” We are excited for the limits being non-existent in Marvin Sapp’s life and career.
RCA Inspiration is proud to celebrate two nominations from the historic 51st NAACP Image Awards. This year’s nominations include hit-making gospel icons Kirk Franklin (for his hit single “Love Theory”) and Donnie McClurkin (for his single “Not Yet”). Both nominations are in the category
of Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song (Traditional or Contemporary) and both albums were released mid-2019.
These two albums are essential to any gospel music collection and are motivating other artists to re-dedicate themselves and push forward to produce some of their own best music. RCA Inspiration has stepped up their game and is flaunting their roster with artists including Donald Lawrence featuring the Tri-City Mass Singers and Le’Andria Johnson; Jason Nelson; Sunday Best winner Melvin Crispell, III; Kurt Carr; Kierra Sheard; Koryn Hawthorne; 3-time Grammy Nominee Travis Greene; and so many others It’s an exciting and inspirational time for gospel music fans! We are grateful for every blessing that awaits us in 2020 and are prayerful that God will grant us 2020 vision as our spiritual journey continues. Happy New Year! Thank God for another chance to improve yourself and your community. Get inspired in 2020!
