Night Beat Rewind: March 2016

We are doing well here at Night Beat HQ. We have completed the March ratings, which means we will soon compile the 2nd Quarter, just as the third quarter is underway. We have also gotten the announcements of the #PlatVnyl6 nominees for the Video Music Awards announced. So we are riding high for the moment. We get underway with the song releases, or what we playfully call

The Singles Scene

  • Fearless BND - Love Like Fire 4.50 Emeralds
  • Deitrick Haddon & Big Boi - Sinners (Saved by Grace) (Remix) 4.50 Emeralds

  • George Moss - Take On The World 4.50 Emeralds
  • Union of Sinners and Saints - Christ The Lord is Risen 4.75 Emeralds

Missed The Mark

  • City Side Music Ministries - Christian Dictionary A1 3.25 Emeralds
  • Joey Jewish - Beautiful Solitude 3.75 Emeralds

Pure Platinum Perfection

  • Jonathan Nelson - Fearless 5 Emeralds
  • Beckah Shae - Rest (Without Words) 5 Emeralds
Our final grouping is usually the largest, and it remains so this month. With over 35 releases however, I think it is one of THE LARGEST. Without further ado.
