I first met Amish McDonald as he sang background for Tasha Page-Lockhart on the heels of her “Sunday Best” win in 2013. The first thing I said was, “have you recorded a CD?” The answer was “no” but the reason was that God had not given him the go ahead at that time. Fast forward to today and the first single, “We Have Come” is officially out!
Check out our conversation about McDonald’s journey here:
This month’s Local Artist Love salutes Chekira Daffin. Chekira began singing as a child under the tutelage of her mother, Apostle Karen Bruce. Although she loves music her major as a proud graduate of the Detroit High School of Fine and Performing Arts was dance. But, it was there where she began to really hone her skills as a singer and would begin to write original music.
I got more details about Chekira’s background and had the opportunity to debut her single… out today… “Love me to Death.”
This month’s Local Artist Love salutes Gerard Brooks. Brooks was very hesitant to become a worship leader but became convicted by the Holy Spirit to heed to his calling and today, he says you can’t keep him from a microphone! As a matter of fact his pastor, Stacey Foster of Life Changers International Ministries says Gerard “would rather sing than eat!” We talked about his first project, “Praise..Worship..Warfare… Freedom!” as well as his new single “Flame” from a new album to be released soon.
