Bad Moon Rising: The 2014 Platinum Vinyl Awards 4th Qtr - Gospel

Gospel Music tied with Alternative this quarter with a whopping fifteen entries into the pool, and a nice mix of new and established artists to boot. That's just the way I like things. Now things can get back to normal, though Normal is Overrated. Here's to closing out the quarter in a big way.

Gospel/R&B

  • Bethany Devine - Daily Confessions
  • Deitrick Haddon -The Best of Deitrick Haddon
  • Shawna Harris - God Is Able
  • Brent Jones - Joy Comin
  • Canton Jones - God City USA
  • Tasha Page Lockhart - Here Right Now
  • Rachael Messini - Honestly
  • VaShawn Mitchell - God My God
  • Smokie Norful - Forever Yours
  • Paul Porter - F.R.E.E.
  • Kierra Sheard - Graceland
  • Isaiah Templeton - Roll in the Dirt
  • The Walls Group - Fast Forward
  • Michelle Williams - Journey to Freedom
  • Zie'l - Pronounced Zy-el
Rachael Messini is the former Rachael Washington of The Washington Projects with her brother Je'kob, whose latest album is in the running for PV6. I am really excited about The Walls Group. When a small group can have that choir sound, it is exciting. Haven't been this psyched about a Gospel Group since Forever Jones.

That does it for the 4th Quarter. Time to get the judging started. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
