The Group Fire Back with New Music for this Season of Uncertainty

When you listen to the Group Fire, you hear those tight harmonies the way singing siblings would sing. That is very close to the truth as all of the members grew up in church together and polished their gift under the teaching of Bishop T. Cooper CEO of Jet Records North/East and producer/songwriter, Steve Cooper. Additionally, all of them attend Palm Garden Holiness church in Newark, NJ so the two sets of siblings call themselves brothers both naturally and in Christ.

I caught up with the Group Fire to talk about the addition of their fifth member (Justin Cooper) and new music that uplifts us during these uncertain times.

Go to their website theofficialgroupfire.com for updates on the talented group of young men, their music and where to find them on social media.

Dexter A. Powell Jr. Uses His Powerful Story To Take A Stand [[Interview]]

Reading Dexter A. Powell Jr’s bio doesn’t do justice to all that he has to offer young and grown people alike. The overriding theme of his book, “Young King: Take Your Stand” is decision making and redemption from a man who was a twelve year old juvenile felon from a bad decision, a teenage father, morbidly obese, food and drug addict as well as depressed and suicidal. But God!

Check out our conversation that moved me to tears and made me shout too and then, get a copy of his FREE book on youngkingbook.com
