Thursday night’s “Battle for Family” saw worship bands, choirs, and solo artists all over the states, battle for a chance to record a music video with Fred Hammond while educating viewers about the need for more people to help adopt and foster children. Also, proceeds from the event will benefit vulnerable kids and families right here in Greater Detroit communities through Bethany Christian Services.
Bam Travis was crowned this year’s winner and I had the opportunity to talk to this talented drummer, vocalist and songwriter. Bam shared he and his wife Ashley’s journey during Thursday’s broadcast and said getting involved in Bethany’s “Battle for Family” was a no brainer.
This week’s artist spotlight is on Motor City’s own Sateara Page Mitchell. A couple of years ago, Sateara was headed into the direction of getting her recorded music out for us to hear but was met with obstacles that sidelined her. But God! Listen to her testimony and how God navigated the lyrics to her new song “Free” while heading to a shopping outlet in Georgia below!
I asked Jason what it was it like recording “Close” during the pandemic, the background of his first single from the project, “Residue” and some of his favorite songs on the album which features Chrisette Michele, jazz bassist John Patitucci and Cross Worship Music’s, Osby Berry. You’ll also hear hints of some of Pastor Nelson’s favorite artist on his album like, Dawkins & Dawkins, Fred Hammond and Commissioned.
Bishop Jason Nelson pastors, The Tab, in Windsor Mill, Maryland and is married to his beautiful wife Tonya. Together they have two children, Jaelyn Paris and Jason Christopher. You can find “Close” wherever you stream/purchase your music or click here!

Jason Nelson’s New Project “Close” Features Old & New Flavor
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.
