VaShawn Mitchell's new CD and DVD :: Promises- Listen & View Now

Promises, takes the listener from praise to promise. Rick Robinson and Danny Weatherspoon join in at the production helm to serve up a project that is sure to encourage the soul. “Crazy Praise” opens with a bang of energetic possibility, set around just what might happen if you let go. “I Worship” takes a CCM flavored turn with an anthemic proclamation; guitar and strings ease the soulful sound of Mitchell’s mix. Delicate worship balladry on “Lift My Hands” grows and winds to full-blown choral splendor. Up-tempo gems “Able” set the stage nicely for title track “For My Good” a contemporary soul-clapper that is inherently infectious. Songs like “It Passed Over Me”, which Mitchell wrote after missing a deadly accident, courtesy of a traffic jam, speak to God’s sovereignty and his hand of protection. Kim Burrell guests spots on “Over & Over”, penned by up and comer Jason Claybourne, whose flowing writing style is perhaps the ying to Mitchell’s yang. “Testimony” is literally that, personal healing testimonies wrapped around a traditional Chicago-style vamp. The extra special energy of Angie Spivey takes things over the top! For more information log onto www.vashawnmitchell.com

Let Rizi Timane's music inspire you 'Just the Way You Are'

Rizi originates from a small tribe of festive warriors called the zuru tribe of Northern Nigeria. She was born & raised back home where she learnt honor, loyalty and integrity from her father Ishaya whom she watched go from a poor rural farmer to a highly successful diplomat & real estate developer. This instilled in her, the belief that with God on your side, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. She was always artistically inclined & actually wrote & sang her 1st song at the age of 6! By age 9 she went to military school & joined the choir -thanks to her God fearing mother, she always loved Jesus. She graduated military school and went to London & obtained her Bachelors degree. She then moved to L.A & obtained Masters & Doctorate degrees but she couldn’t escape her calling & God was calling her back to his divine assignment for her life, so off to the studio she went & this anointed CD, “Just the Way You Are” is the end result. It will encourage, inspire and bless you. For more information call RIZI TIMANE' at: 323-446-7472, Email: RIZITIMANE@YAHOO.COM or log onto: WWW.RIZIGOSPEL.COM
