Settling for love, she finds herself yearning for the life she’d always wanted to live. When the devastation steps in, Tanya is thrown into dismay wondering why she gave up so much for love.

Previous releases, “Rushing to Distraction”, and “Wrong Vengeance”, The Blakk Dahlia tapped into the Foolish and Toxic Hearts, respectively. “I just wanted to open up a different type of dialog between men and women about how we enter relationships.

Releasing the book on Independence shows the depth of the true meaning of freeing yourself and allowing what is meant for you to find you. – The Blakk Dahlia

10 is a Magic Number | BLACK Album by Mr. Del

Hip Hop Artist, Author, Pastor and Music Mogul MR. DEL Drops 10th Career Album BLACK Underscoring The Racial Division In Christian And Gospel Music

Del Lawrence aka “Mr. Del” Continues To Build Mogul Status With 10th Career Album, Thriving Church and Record Label and Popular Soul Ties Enterprise Books and Podcasts.

Memphis, TN — Hip Hop Artist, Author, Pastor and Music Mogul Del Lawrence, aka “Mr. Del” has established himself as the ‘Hope Dealer’ and an innovator in the Christian/Gospel Rap genre. He is the pastor of the thriving City of Refuge Church in Memphis and as an artist has garnered Dove, Grammy and Stellar Award nominations. He started his own label, Dedicated Music Group (DMG), that develops new talent and pushes out multiple hard-hitting albums each year. DMG has released albums, singles and videos over the past 10 years from Mr. Del himself, Mali Music, Murk, D. McGhee, Fro, and has orchestrated dynamic collaborations with Canton Jones, Pettidee, Uncle Reece, Kirk Whalum, Salt (of Salt-N-Pepa), Gangsta Boo, Hee-Sun Lee, Gospel Gangstaz and more.

BLACK Album by Mr. DelMr. Del is now releasing his 10th career album, BLACK. The album theme underscores the continued racial division in music, specifically in Gospel and Contemporary Christian genres.

“Black has a dual meaning,” Mr. Del explains. “It represents the dark side of the gospel and the dark side of being Black in America.” He continues, “I feel that as a Kingdom Hip Hop artist it is my responsibility to uncover both of these dynamics especially since there is segregation even in our Christian music industry. Christian or Contemporary Christian is viewed as ‘white music’ and Gospel is viewed as ‘black music’. Shouldn’t we all be ONE?”

Mr. Del’s BLACK album spurs thought on racial divides not only in music, but addresses its impact on individuals of various nationalities and races globally. However, Mr. Del’s album isn’t just another album filled with lyrics highlighting societal challenges, the album also promotes peace, unity and love and self awareness through inspiring lyrics and biblical doctrine.

“Pray It Up”, featuring FRO and Murk, encourages listeners to turn to prayer first in all things and “Can You Forgive?” is Mr. Del’s personal testimony of walking in forgiveness after abusive situations and personal attacks. Mr. Del takes time to honor, uplift and encourage African-American women on “Black, Bold & Beautiful” and is joined by long-time friend Canton Jones and Uncle Reece on “On God”.

In addition to his acclaimed albums and impressive music career span, Mr. Del is also the author of a book series called SOUL TIES which includes: Soul Ties: How To Detox From Toxic Relationships and Soul Ties 2: Love, Lust, & Lies. His candid, soul searching series and Soul Ties Seminars have been revolutionizing relationships and changing lives all over the country.

 

mr del - brash! magazine blog“I am excited to have launched the Soul Ties Enterprise which includes, radio, television, and podcast,” he transparently shares. “During my childhood, I suffered mental, emotional, and physical abuse at the hands of my parents. Those toxic experiences negatively shaped my perception of myself and others. This started a cycle of dysfunctional relationships that continued into my adulthood. It wasn’t until I got saved and developed a relationship with God that I was able to detox from those toxic soul ties and become a better man. My own trials and triumphs sparked a burning passion within me to help others experience the transformation I have and become whole, healthier, happier people.”

The Soul Ties Podcast features Mr. Del and co-host Ms. Murk P31. His weekly podcast also includes The Mancast Podcast with his co-host T-Mo w/the Dance Moves. Mr. Del’s Mancast Podcast also addresses relationship topics and was created By Men, For Men and The Women That Love Them.

Penning An True Story to Inspire | “Why Not Me” by Autumn Cannon

Background Vocalist Autumn Cannon Steps Forward For Solo Career With “Why Not Me” Radio Single and Inspirational Book

AC_WNMHaving toured the U.S. singing background for blues artists Willie Clayton, Omar Cunningham, Kenne Wayne and touring for three years with the popular Festival of Praise Tour, singer Autumn Cannon is stepping from behind the background vocalist position to the lead mic in Godly confidence with a emotional and inspiring new single and book “Why Not Me”.

“Why Not Me” is a tender and melodic ballad from this warm and versatile vocal alto. The Mississippi native and now Dallas, TX, developed the idea of this new inspirational track from an emotional conversation with her producer. “He asked me to tell him about my testimony. I began to vent and cry for over an hour on the phone about my life and the events that kept me bound. I could not stop crying. The very next day, he expressed that he heard my heart through my story on the phone the night before and wanted to put my words to melody.”

Autumn has also documented her personal testimony in the pages of a book. She is the author of a new inspirational book under the same title WHY NOT ME. She openly shares her intimate conversations with God as she journeys through life’s highways with twists and turns that have dispensed hurt, disappointment and pain. She shows how the closeness with the Savior has saved her and given her a life of victory over the past and victory for the future.

“Why Not Me is my story. It was scripted from my life experiences of being mistreated by friends, suffering through bad relationships, experiencing infidelity, abuse and neglect, and often wondering why God would allow me to go through so much? I was often asking God the same question – Why Me? Then God spoke to me in one of my worst storms asking me “Why Not You?”. After realizing that in every past situation, God still got the glory and now I am able to minister to so many people. My response was an eye opening, confident response…Why Not Me! So, I wrote and recorded the song with tears in my eyes.”

WNM_book
Autumn’s WHY NOT ME book is available on Amazon. Her single is available on digital music outlets and is climbing the Gospel radio charts. Autumn is continuing to do background singing with Fred Hammond, but has an increasingly busy schedule as a solo artist with the intention of her music and ministry employing others and reaching the masses from country to country.
