This would not be Nichelle's only deal in the UK, which is where her biggest fan base seems to be. Her Sophomore Project, "Millenaire", which is still available on i-tunes as well as the internet and some stores got her another deal with a label called, "Cafedesoul Records".

    SRWM ~ Rock Bottom Baby

    in Podcasting

    Hitting "Rock Bottom" is not necessary before you really decide to make a change. There are Signs, warning,and wake up calls going on all around before you get there! Are You Watching where you’re Going, Saying and Listening to them. Or choosing to keep heading Straight.... on the path toward destruction?

    You don't have to you know!! You can simply acknowledge the source of the issue/problem/situation and DEAL with it.
    Here are some Questions to ask yourself:



    Who/What is the biggest problem you encounter? “People often want to wait too long before they ask for help. They believe it is impossible to turn around or make a change. Before you get to this place, there will be warning signs all over the place in a marriage, and then all of a sudden the husband or wife walks out. The one you believe to be left behind has ALL the Answers and that ONE is The LORD!
    When is the time to make a Change? Tell yourself I can I do it Right Now?  Don't fall into the trap of believing there is Nothing you can do about it NOW! Maybe you believe You should have been working on it sooner? Most people will wait until it’s seemingly too late, and they go through unnecessary pain.
    Where can I get the answers? The WORD! 
    Why should I make this Change I'm not that bad? The WORD of God: The Bible says, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8 NIV).


    Take time out of Each Day ask yourself those hard questions about the sin in Your Life. Get to the Root of the Problem ...You’ve got to face the truth about YOU!

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Best selling author Vanessa Davis Griggs makes her first appearance on the Author Chat Show to discuss her new re-release, Redeeming Waters.


    About the book:


    Redeeming Waters is a story about a mega gospel recording artist named King d.Avid who meets Brianna. Their paths cross again years later and you see them both dealing with some things during that time. As with all of us, we make decisions not realizing how deep the consequences of those actions may take us. This story shows how one decision can begin to snowball into something that’s hard to stop as it gains an avalanche of momentum. People will also learn things when it comes to the biblical telling of David and Bathsheba. 


    About the author:


    An author and motivational speaker who adores the power of words both written and spoken, at the end of 1996 this former BellSouth employee left 18 years of service and stepped out on faith as she pursues her purpose and passion—writing and speaking. Vanessa Davis Griggs resides in Irondale, a community just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Among many recognitions and awards, she’s the 2014 AAMBC Christian Writer of the Year. Vanessa received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition March 2010 from Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. of Georgia. Her novel Forever Soul Ties was a 2012 RT Book Review nominee for Best Multicultural Fiction. The Other Side of Divine received RT Book Review’s highest recognition of 4.5 Stars and Top Pick! and was also an 2013 RT Book Review nominee for Best Multicultural Fiction.

    The Demise of Live 365 & The Future of Internet Radio

    in Radio

    INTRO


    We've talked about Live 365 in our previous episode in January and the word was (at that time), that LIVE 365 would still exist, just in a different form. The media published a news item a few weeks ago, in which it described a deal LIVE 365 had struck with Bluberry Media, in which they would create a new platform known as Live365/podcast2radio, which would allow podcasters to create their radio broadcasts from their podcast, for which they owned the royalties. But now, we can neither confirm or deny the truth in this supposition, as we get the infamous "404 error message" when we try to access the URL to this.


    WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN


    Here is the link that shows what LIVE 365 had planned to do as a last ditch attempt to save the ship:


    http://rainnews.com/exclusive-live365-and-blubrry-launch-podcast2radio-streaming-distribution-for-growing-podcast-audiences/


    THE COLD REALITY


    So is LIVE 365.com dead?


    THE FUTURE OF INTERNET BROADCASTING


    But what about the future of internet radio? Should we take this as a sign that since one of the best internet radio platforms that ever existed has died, that the rest of us won't survive? No. Tune in today and hear our prognostications as we look ahead to the future of internet broadcasting. And an even better question, how can we, the future leaders of internet radio, secure our position in this space so that no amount of legislation can disable our right to get our ideas to the masses.
