About Kirk Franklin

Franklin’s latest musical offering—and 13th studio album—is the aptly titled LONG LIVE LOVE from his RCA-distributed label, Fo Yo Soul Recordings.

“Love Theory” peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart. The vibrant track marked the singer’s record-extending seventh No. 1 and his second time atop the chart. With 1 million U.S. streams in its first week per Nielsen Music, “Love Theory” also opened at No. 1 on Gospel Streaming Songs as well as Gospel Digital Song Sales. Its colorful and energetic video has accumulated over 2.5 million YouTube views and counting.

The winner of more than 40 Stellar Awards and 16 Dove Awards, he is also busy pushing the envelope in other endeavors. Franklin brought his total GRAMMY tally to 16 Grammys in 2019 during Tori Kelly’s first foray into gospel, the Franklin-produced Hiding Place, won best gospel album. “Never Alone,” the Franklin co-penned single from the album, was named best gospel performance/song.

About Tye Tribbett

With one of the most relevant voices of this generation, a sound that reaches the heart of young as well as the old, Tye Tribbett creates a dynamic new caliber of music. His music cannot be classified as one genre, but his unique, abstract way encompasses all. Often heralded as the "Elvis of Gospel” and one of the most relevant voices of this generation, multiple GRAMMY® Award and Soul Train Music Award-winning Motown Gospel recording artist Tye Tribbett’s latest album, “All Things New,” was released in 2022.

This accomplished multiple Stellar and Dove Award-wining musician’s charismatic, energetic and dynamic personality can be seen pastoring alongside his wife Shante Tribbett at their newly launched ministry, Live Church, located in Orlando, FL., where they reside along with their two daughters.

About David and Tamela Mann

Ingeniously funny and extraordinarily talented are understatements when it comes to the multifaceted actor and NAACP Image® Award winner for Outstanding Actor In A Comedy Series (Meet The Browns, “Mr. Brown”),David Mann. A native of the state of Texas, David masterfully showcases his God given talents in today's most dynamic and distinguished genre.

Completion is a beautiful goal, yet it can be so hard to attain. It’s something most of us wrestle with throughout our lives and Tamela Mann is no exception. It’s a concept that surfaces throughout her new album Overcomer, a compelling collection of songs that takes the listener on the journey Tamela has been traveling the past few years.

On Overcomer, Tamela has been more involved than ever in the songwriting, lending her input to nearly every track. Never has her creative vision been more powerful or her heart more open than on this collection of poignant songs. During the past several years, Tamela has dealt with physical challenges including double knee replacement surgery and a dramatic wellness journey, while joining the rest of the country in dealing with the emotional stress of the pandemic and political and racial upheaval. Tamela has sought God’s heart as she’s dealt with both the joys and challenges of life, and pours her hard-earned wisdom into her music.
