Kenna Turner West signs with Sonlite Records

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 2, 2020 – 9:47 am -

Arden, North Carolina — Sonlite Records and Crossroads Music are pleased to announce the signing of Kenna Turner West to their roster of recording artists. For nearly four decades, West has blended music, devotional teaching, and humor into a ministry that has reached across the nation and around the world. As an award-winning songwriter, her efforts have garnered numerous honors including six BMI Awards, three Dove Awards, twenty-three “Song of The Year” wins, and a growing list of #1s. 

West — who is currently pursuing a master’s degree in theology — began her career in gospel music as a vocalist in 1983, serving in full-time ministry until 2011 when she scaled back her touring schedule to help her teenage son learn to navigate the world with a visual disability. For the last nine years, she has poured herself into songwriting, co-writing hits such as “Say Amen,” “Even Me,” “Victory Shout,” “Revival,” “Come Sunday Morning,” “What Kind of Man,” and “Can I Get a Witness.” Signing with Crossroads brings the artist’s career full circle.

“I am so thankful for the opportunity that Chris White and Mickey Gamble have given me, and I am absolutely overjoyed to work with longtime friends Greg Bentley, Roger Talley, and Jeff Collins,” says West. “This is literally a dream come true!”

The new relationship between West and Crossroads is a testimony of God’s providence, she explains. “It’s amazing to think that at the very same time our son is thriving in grad school — which allows me the opportunity to return to the road with new music — Crossroads calls! The timing couldn’t be more perfect, and I couldn’t be more excited!”

Sonlite Records’ Greg Bentley adds, “I have known Kenna for more than 30 years. She is one of those special people that once you meet them, they are imprinted on your brain as a great friend. Many people know Kenna more for her song writing, but I’ve known she has a special anointing on her way of communicating the message that needs to be shared. So, we discussed this deal around the office, then with Kenna, and now she is part of our Sonlite Records/Crossroads family. We couldn’t be more thrilled. Be watching for new songs coming out before the end of this year.”

Lorraine Walker: A Time to Fight

Lorraine Walker: A Time to Fight2020 June SGNScoops Editor’s Last Word By Lorraine Walker

Thank you for flipping the pages to the very end this month and catching the Editor’s Last Word. It’s June and I hope you have time to read all the great stories we are presenting. SGNScoops is blessed with some of the best writers in gospel music and as you take in every feature, I’m sure you will agree.

 

Karen Peck Gooch is our lovely cover girl this month, a lady who is beautiful on the inside as well. Jennifer Campbell allows her own sweet heart to shine through in this feature. I trust you learned something new about Karen. I remember hearing her with the Nelons in the ’80s. What I remember the most about that concert was Kelly Nelon singing “Ain’t No Grave,” and Karen wearing an orange dress that was just stunning. Yes, orange. It was the 80s!

 

As we sail into summertime, I pray that COVID-19 is stopped in its tracks and we can all come out of hibernation. It has been a time of increased stress for most people, I’m sure. What is ahead is unknown and that can cause anxiety and fear.

 

I read this in the Bible the other day: “So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, ‘As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.’”

2 Samuel 5:20 (NIVUK)

 

Lorraine Walker: A Time to Fight

Niagara Falls

I began to think about my enemies, including such things as health and finances. For each of us, these enemies may look different. However, I believe that, just as David knew the Lord went before him in battle, the Lord is commanding his angel army for our deliverance today. His armies have “broken out” against our enemies, and will continue to do so. The image I see in my mind is of a dam that is bursting (or the power of the water flowing over Niagara Falls, as shown), the water gushing through and covering everything in its path.

 

Take a moment to see that the Lord is bursting through the defences of your enemies and washing them away. In scripture, water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. Allow His Spirit to wash away your stress, doubts and fear. Because fear, as we know, is a liar.

 

Isn’t it exciting that the Holy One has charged His angels concerning us to defeat our enemies? We are not idle during this battle, however, as we are given armor to wear, like the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation. So today, put on your armor, my friends, because there is going to be a fight. And, as the late Roger Bennett sang, “I read the back of the book and we win!”

 

Lorraine Walker: A Time to Fight

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Written by Staff on June 26, 2020 – 5:58 am -

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound

Stow, OH (June 25, 2020) – After much prayer, consultation and taking a long look at the big picture of how this Covid-19 crisis has impacted every aspect of our lives, I have made peace with the decision to suspend all EHSS touring for 2020. We are hopeful to resume touring in March 2021. However, should things dramatically change and we can all gather together sooner safely, you will be the first to know!

As a leader, I not only feel a responsibility for livelihoods, but also for the LIVES of everyone involved! I feel this for you too, the extended EHSS family whom we have come to love and adore. The concern for the health and safety of everyone is more important to me than trying to go forward with a tour.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please know that we are working to reschedule our 2020 dates and look forward to seeing you all in 2021. Ticketing questions should be directed to the point of purchase.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Suspends 2020 Tour; Announces New Endeavor

Ernie Haase

The good news is we WILL carry on! We are taking this opportunity to expand our territory by turning our Friday evening “Ernie’s Living Room Sing” into a longer expanded weekly concert series/ TV/webisode.

The debut will be September 11, 2020 at 7:00 PM EST. We will start with a special themed program that you will NOT want to miss!

For now, these weekly programs will be broadcast on the EHSS Facebook fan page, as well as on my YouTube channel. I have tons of creative ideas that have me brimming with excitement!

In closing, many sweet people like you, for the last 33 years have asked me, “How can I help you, Ernie?” I have always said, “If I ever figure that out, I’ll let you know.” Here is how you can help: pray, spread the word, and “partner” with us by going to www.ErnieHaase.com and clicking on the PARTNER tab (Coming Soon). There, you will find out how you can help us make “Something Beautiful” out of this gift of crisis. I say “gift” because I truly believe this quote to be true:

“The Greek root of the word crisis is ‘to sift,’ as in to shake out the excesses and leave only what’s important. That’s what crises do. They shake things up until we are forced to hold on to only what matters most. The rest falls away.”- Glennon Doyle

As you can see, I have a lot of work to do. Do not think that I don’t have reservations; I am human. But I’d rather walk into what is possible with hope and faith in a divine plan than sit and cry over what used to be. That has never been me, and it is not going to be me now.

Thank you for your loving support…it’s time to WAKE UP and go to work.

Here we go!
Ernie

New Legacy Project New Radio Release and Lyric Video

Written by Staff on June 25, 2020 – 9:17 am -

New Legacy Project New Radio Release and Lyric VideoNew Legacy Project New Radio Release and Lyric Video

Nashville, Tenn – Long-running, cutting edge Southern Gospel group, ™New Legacy Project, have announced the upcoming release of their new lyric video “Born For This,” a single recently released to radio from their album T”Rest Of The Story.”

This upbeat and lilting song was written by popular Nashville writers Gina Boe, Carl Cartee and Kenna West.  The lyrics encourage us to “breathe in this moment… knowing that there’s hope in the making.” Initially NLP hadn’t planned to release this particular cut as a single, but with all the strife in the world today they knew it’s time had come.

Of the song, group owner and Gospel Music Hall of Fame Member Rick Price says, “When I first heard ‘Born For This,’ written by my long-time friend Kenna Turner-West with Gina and Carl, I knew we had to record it. And it’s more relevant now than then. The words speak to current events both here and abroad. The world needs hope right now, and we are called to bring that message in the best way we know how — through our music.  We really were born for this.”

“The Rest of the Story” was produced by Bobby Blazier and Rick Price. Every cut showcases the group’s stellar harmonies and powerful delivery. The lead vocal for “Born For This” is flawlessly performed by baritone Luke Yates, and his resonant tone serves to emphasize the important message.

While “Born for This” might not quite fit the Southern gospel sound you’re used to hearing from NLP, it will assuredly be a song you will want to play again and again.

The video, created by Kingdom Artists, is now being premiered by Singing News Magazine.

The video can be viewed on the group’s YouTube page.

To purchase New Legacy Project’s music click any of the icons or go to NLP Store .

About New Legacy Project

Formerly the Blackwood Legacy, ™New Legacy Project is best known for their intricate harmonies, cutting edge Southern Gospel sound, and their homespun humor.  NLP is led by Rick Price, who spent much of his 40-year career with the Grammy and Dove Award winning Blackwood Brothers, and who was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with the legendary quartet. Price says “In 45 years of Gospel music, this is the finest group I have ever been a part of. Not only are they great singers and musicians, they are wonderful Christian men.” ™New Legacy Project travels throughout the United States, performing concerts more than 150 times per year. They are one of the longest running non-family groups in Southern Gospel music today.
