Gospel singer Marvin Sapp is still standing.
After losing his wife MaLinda a year ago and becoming a single father to three children, aged 12, 14 and 17, Sapp is finally ready to come out of mourning with a new album documenting his struggles and how he is overcoming them.
"The focus of this record," said Sapp to Billboard.com, "is how you can come through situations and still remain on top. It's about how the enemy has a way of hitting you with stuff to cause you to fold and buckle, but I'm still standing."
Sapp will be literally going in a new direction for his album, choosing for the first time to record his live album at a location other than Lighthouse Full Life Center Church, where he is the senior pastor. […] Read more »
As the youngest male American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery has already had success on the charts with single “I Love You This Big” and an EP of his performances from the show. Both of these, however, are leading up to his debut album, titled Clear As Day. The album will hit stores October 4 and is currently available through the singer’s official website.
About the album, which is one of the fastest to hit stores for an Idol, McCreery said on Good Morning America: "We're putting what I believe are the best songs we could find on it and I really hope everyone likes it. The whole experience has been amazing! I love working with my album producer, Mark Bright, and have gotten to work with some of the best musicians in Nashville!"[…] Read more »
After disbanding in 2008, Ministry are back and have both an album and tour coming up. Metal Hammer recently caught up with Al Jourgensen, who has been in the studio with his old bandmates. While a few tracks have been recorded so far, fans should expect to see the new album by Christmas.
Reuniting actually occurred in the studio. Jourgensen said: “While I was working on [the Buck Satan record], me and Mike Scaccia from Rigor Mortis f*cked around to pass the time and we had like, 5,6,7 songs and I didn’t really want to do anything with them but Mikey was like, ‘dude these songs are awesome.’ They weren’t country, they were more like Ministry.

Expected to hit stores nearly a year ago, Kelly Clarkson’s fifth studio album – now titled Stronger – finally has an official release date and a first single. But with repeated dates that did not fall through over the past 10 months, is this one for real?

Taking an unconventional approach, Clarkson is releasing “Mr. Know It All” via webcast from her official site, KellyClarkson.com, and the song will be available digitally on September 5. Fans who pre-order the album through the website will automatically receive the single.[…] Read more »
Cher Lloyd has confirmed that her second single will be a fierce dub-step inflected rap track titled 'Dub On The Track', featuring MC Ghetts.
The 18-year old pop sensation reportedly filmed the music video for the single last week and is expected to upload the song in full on her YouTube account soon.
The song's hard-hitting dub step style makes it a commercially-viable single option, given the British chart's current proliferation of hits in that electronica sub-genre. Upcoming dub step artist Nero is currently reigning the UK charts with their single 'Promise' following on a trend set by DJ Fresh's 'Louder', which in July became the first dub step track to top the UK charts. In fact, several official remixes of Cher's #1-selling single 'Swagger Jag[…] Read more »
One Direction has been a teen demographic favourite ever since its five members were grouped to form the band after they failed to make the cut as solo performers. The quintet - consisting of Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan - came third in the 2010 X Factor series and secured a £2 million recording contract with Syco - Simon Cowell's signature record label.
The premiere of One Direction's debut music video appears to have been strategically released to coincide with the new X Factor series, which began screening in the UK yesterday. The video for 'What Makes You Beautiful' was shot in Malibu Beach, Los Angeles, and it features the boys going on a summer road trip, playing in the water and flirting with girls. The video was directed by John Urbano, famed for creating highly editorial commercials for Abercrombie and Converse.[…] Read more »
