It could be his powerful, soulful voice, or his refreshing delivery that makes inspirational artist Wess Morgan such a thrill to bear witness to. Or maybe it’s because he has walked on a rough path—one that might have made another falter—that makes his music so moving, so unique, and so unforgettable. But one thing is for certain, Wess, by the grace of God, has proven that he is strong, resilient, and one of the most talented and anointed gospel / inspirational artists of this generation.
Born in Mississippi, but raised in Tennessee by an extremely musical family—his parents Joseph and Yolanda, both pastors, sang in and out of church—Wess knew at a young age that music and God was destined to be an integral part of his life. Along with his siblings, he began traveling with his parents, as they ministered the word of God through music, teaching, and preaching in churches across the United States.
But at the age of 11, Wess began experimenting with drugs and alcohol, eventually becoming addicted to cocaine and finding himself in and out of juvenile detention centers for most of his teens and 20s. It was while in jail, and about to be sentenced for seriously injuring his friends—in a horrifying car crash in which he was high, drunk, and speeding—that he spoke to God and God actually answered him. “I just cried out to God and asked Him to forgive me for what happened and to help me get straight,” Wess remembers. “I asked Him for a strategy and He spoke one word to me and that was ‘accountability.’ And I’ve been clean ever since.” Pursuing a singing career had always been a deep desire for Wess, but his addictions kept robbing him of the chance. After he beat his addiction, he finally went into the studio with Tre Corley, the pair ende up writing and producing Wess first sol project, "Look at Me Now!
Countre Boi is one of holy hip-hop’s up incoming front runners, has a story that resembles most artists; however, there is one aspect of his story that he doesn’t share with many of his counterparts. This is Countre Boi’s third attempt to become renowned for his rapping and songwriting gifts. And, by the looks of his progress as an artist today, the third time’s a charm. His first album “Refined” is laced with a unique sound from beginning to end, and won Album of The Year at the 2014 Rhythm of Gospel Awards. His first mixtape which released in 2014 is nominated for six 2015 Rhythm of Gospel Awards.Not to mention, after one conversation with him about music, his smile and exuberance for his craft makes you think that he just joined the game. “While there have been pain and tears, I have learned in this industry that you have to have patience. My break is coming because music is in me. I love music. God gave this talent to me to use, and I will use it to the best of my ability to influence people,” says the married father of four boys. He is doing just that these days as a solo artist, but that wasn’t always the case.Countre Boi’s journey in the industry began about nine years ago with a run- of-the-mill rap group called Trap County Boys. “We came out and did shows, but it didn’t quite turn out right. We were talking about selling dope, robbing, and, to be honest, I don’t like to make songs about things that I am not doing myself. I’m not getting on a song about smoking weed, selling dope and robbing when I’m not doing any of that. So, I didn’t feel right about being in the group. I felt like a liar, and I just wasn’t into it. So I decided to leave.”
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes recording artist Cynthia Holiday to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss her love of music and what it's been lie to share that with the world.

Hear this exclusive interview with artist Shannon Celia and host Michael Harris as they discuss her art, motivation and her artistic techniques.
Shannon has been painting professionally for about 8 years in oil and lately, she’s been concentrating on her favorite theme of seascapes and boats. Since she’s been doing this, Shannon has won four awards since January, which confirms her belief that we should follow our passions when creating. Shannon lives in the Conejo Valley of Southern California and is a member of various local art associations such as the juried Thousand Oaks Art Association, The Buenaventura Art Association and the Westlake Village Art Guild.
“My passion is painting contemporary seascapes created in oil, using palette knives with a focus on color, mood, texture and light. I believe that seeing the world through an artist's lens is a gift, so I celebrate by observing, contemplating and painting the subtle details!”

He follows the proverbial lines of being raised in the church and followed the typical Christian upbringing. The real story begins when he becomes a young adult and finds himself in the secular world of music and the opulent lifestyle of a drug dealer. Duran was enticed by the money and power that the R&B world had to offer. He has shared the stage with many artists such as R. Kelly, Lil Wayne, and other A-List artists. Along with the fame, there was a dark side of drugs, money, and women that would eventually be more than he could bear. While he was living in suburban Atlanta, Duran received a call which had him leave the house and soon after his home was raided. It was then that Duran realized he had not only been given a warning but a mandate to turn from that lifestyle and go back to his first works. Duran rededicated his life to Christ and announced his calling to minister to the masses. From this revelation, New Creation materialized with a mission to envelope and encourage young people to use their talents to edify and uplift the name of the Lord. Within the first 7 months that the group existed, they recorded with Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones twice for The Word Network and once for Black Entertainment Television Network (BET). Along with DBM, he is also the visionary behind a non-profit organization named Stretch Outreach Ministries. Stretch’s mission is to reach past our normal limitations to win souls for Christ. Mr. Buckingham is well on his way to stardom and is a very motivated and determined individual who is inspired by the scripture Galatians 6:9 which says “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” NKJ
