FATHOM EVENTS BRINGS ‘RUSS TAFF: I STILL BELIEVE’

“I Still Believe” – a documentary detailing the award-winning vocalist’s life and his battle with alcoholism – is set to appear in select theaters as a one-night event on Oct. 30.

 

“Rick Altizer, he did the Chonda Pierce movie (‘Chonda Pierce: Laughing in the Dark’) … he came to my house a couple of years ago,” Taff shares. “We were just talking. He said, ‘Why don’t you let me tell your story?’ He knew a lot of it, but I haven’t talked about it much to anybody.

 

“It’s been my life’s work to be made whole. He convinced me … he said, ‘Your story would bring hope to so many people.’”

CHAPEL VALLEY SIGNS MEADOW LANE ON THEIR SANCTUARY RECORD LABEL

Written by Staff on November 14, 2018 – 6:58 am -

CHAPEL VALLEY SIGNS MEADOW LANE ON THEIR SANCTUARY RECORD LABE

CHAPEL VALLEY SIGNS MEADOW LANE
ON THEIR SANCTUARY RECORD LABEL

Chapel Valley is pleased to announce a new addition to their Sanctuary label. Meadow Lane is a Southern gospel trio from Cleveland, Tennessee consisting of three members of the Epperson family: Jeremy, his daughter Anais (20) and his son, Bryson (18).

CHAPEL VALLEY SIGNS MEADOW LANE ON THEIR SANCTUARY RECORD LABEJeremy recalls sitting next to his grandmother at just three years old, watching her put on her makeup on the way to the concert while she taught him to harmonize with the music from their family group, the Singing Echoes. Les Beasley put him on stage to sing at a concert when he was just five years old. When he started kindergarten, his mom came off the road and he went to school, but his concerts continued from the front yard. Neighbors would go outside to water flowers in the morning on Saturday and hear he and his brothers singing. They would go back out in the afternoon and the concert would still be going on. Now, they’ve passed that down to their families. Anais started singing before she could talk and even got a paddling her second week in kindergarten for singing in class.

CHAPEL VALLEY SIGNS MEADOW LANE ON THEIR SANCTUARY RECORD LABEJeremy traveled with the Singing Echoes for over 20 years, singing every part from bass to tenor, playing multiple instruments, and writing a number of favorite Singing Echoes songs. In February of 2014, Jeremy stepped down and shortly after, he and his two children formed Meadow Lane. The trio has toured several states and performed at many churches and prestigious venues across the country.

Shane Roark said, “We were impressed with this family from our first meeting. Jeremy’s history in the music ministry is well-rooted, and Anais and Bryson have grown up immersed in the music they sing. They sing from their hearts. We’re looking forward to producing some incredible albums together.” Meadow Lane is inspired to take their calling seriously and continue to take the songs on their hearts to the places the Lord sends them. They’re excited about joining the Chapel Valley family.

Meadow Lane’s current radio single, “I Want to be Singing” from their album entitled “Blood, Grace, and Tears” is climbing the charts. Meadow Lane is working on song selection and songwriting for a brand-new album, which will be recorded with Chapel Valley on their Sanctuary Label. Visit Meadow Lane at www.meadowlaneministries.com

and be sure to like them on Facebook to learn more about upcoming news from this talented family trio.

‘RUSS TAFF: I STILL BELIEVE’ FILLS THEATERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

Written by Staff on November 7, 2018 – 6:53 pm -

Pictured (l-r) following the presentation of “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” at Franklin, Tennessee’s historic Franklin Theatre: Amy Grant, Russ Taff, Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman, and Tori Taff.

Pictured (l-r) following the presentation of “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” at Franklin, Tennessee’s historic Franklin Theatre: Amy Grant, Russ Taff, Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman, and Tori Taff.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Premiering in more than 700 movie theaters nationwide for a one-time special presentation, Fathom Events/Fuseic Entertainment’s “Russ Taff: I Still Believe” was the #2 per screen average (PSA) movie in America for the night of October 30, according to data collected by Comscore. With multiple screen sellouts in several cities—including Dallas, Minneapolis, Nashville and Tulsa, Oklahoma—the documentary is one of Fathom Events’ top faith-based music-themed presentations.

“Russ Taff: I Still Believe” chronicles the GRAMMY® and Dove Award winning artist’s unparalleled musical journey and behind-the-scenes battle with alcoholism. Taff candidly reveals how a tumultuous past fueled his own addiction and the ultimate healing he embraced in the power of Christ’s love and forgiveness. Immediately following the presentation, theater audiences were treated to a special acoustic session with Taff and GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriters Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapman.

“I had no idea what it would feel like to sit in a theater with many of the people I love most in this world and watch some of my darkest moments and deepest regrets play out,” Taff says of the film’s premiere. “What I was completely unprepared for was the wave of unconditional love, compassion, acceptance and encouragement I felt in telling the truth.”

“Our prayer is that this movie starts a conversation about the impact of addiction and trauma,” he adds. “I believe God can use our story to help coax other hurting people out of the shadows—and that is worth every moment of pain it took to get here.”

“We are humbled and overwhelmed by the response we have received from the movie,” said director Rick Altizer, Fuseic Entertainment. “God has done amazing things with this story. We are hearing from people struggling with addictions or marriage issues who saw the film and recognized their own need for help. It took courage for Russ and Tori to be this honest, and their heart to see others find healing is apparent in ‘I Still Believe.’”

In addition, Taff’s debut praise and worship recording, Believe, bowed last week from Sweetwater Studios, a division of Sweetwater Sound, and with global distribution from The Fuel Music. The full-circle, 12-song release is Taff’s first recording in more than seven years and is available at physical and digitalretailers everywhere.Hailed by Billboard magazine as “the single most electrifying voice in Christian music,” Russ Taff has garnered six GRAMMY® Awards and 18 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. Inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame an unprecedented three times—as a soloist, as well as a member of The Imperials and the Gaither Vocal Band—Taff is also a member of the Christian Music Hall of Fame and the Arkansas Walk of Fame.

Rising to prominence with The Imperials, trailblazers of the contemporary Christian music movement of the 1970s, Taff was the voice behind such quintessential hits as “Praise the Lord,” “Trumpet of Jesus” and “I’m Forgiven,” among many others. His genre-defying sound later endeared him to Southern Gospel audiences, and he spent nearly three years as a member of the world-renowned Gaither Vocal Band. Taff has recorded 11 solo albums to date, including industry benchmarks Medals (1985), Russ Taff (1987) and Under Their Influence (1991), and his classic singles include “We Will Stand,” “I’m Not Alone,” “Not Gonna Bow” and “Love Is Not A Thing.” From rock giants Kings of Leon to MercyMe’s Bart Millard and Newsboys’ Michael Tait, Taff’s influence is felt throughout the music world.

The release of the ‘Sherry Anne LIVE!’ DVD last week saw its debut at Number 5 on the Billboard Music Video Chart for sales during the week of November 3rd. The project enlisted the talents of producers Dr. Steve Allen and Brian Ledford and project coordinator John Mathis Jr. and was released in partnership with Mansion Entertainment. The live concert includes Michael Booth (Booth Brothers) as the guest soloist along with a cast of the industry’s best musicians and vocalists: Toni Jolene Clay, Landy Ewing, Andrew Ishee, Scott Neubert and Michael Booth.

Sherry Anne live dvdSherry Anne, who has had to overcome hearing-impairment to achieve success as an artist, adds another accolade to her growing list of accomplishments which include numerous award nominations and national charting radio singles. She is an avid lip reader due to her hearing impairment and knows firsthand the importance of being able to see faces and emotions while listening to music. This became an influential part of the decision to undertake a live concert recording. Sherry Anne commented on that decision-making process: “Audiences have told me for years that they love to listen to me sing but even more so, they love to WATCH me sing. And so the DVD idea was born!”

The DVD includes the songs that have become audiences’ favorites from Sherry Anne’s concert performances. It also contains two new songs, plus some of her most requested Christmas songs. Sherry Anne LIVE! is also available as an audio product on CD and includes the full concert performance and testimony, along with “He Heals” performed by Michael Booth. Sherry Anne accompanies Michael in the video performance with sign language interpretation of the song.

Sonlite Records and the Down East Boys work to spread God’s word with Singing News Radio and Bible League International

Written by Staff on November 2, 2018 – 3:28 pm -

Arden, North Carolina (November 1, 2018) – Sonlite Records and the Down East Boys have teamed up with Singing News Radio and Bible League International to get Bibles into the hands of new Christians around the world through the League’s ‘Til The Whole World Knows campaign.

Throughout the month of November, the first 50 people who donate $50 or more to Bible League International will receive a copy of the Down East Boys’ latest album, One Day In The Past, which features their hit single, “Beat Up Bible.”

“As Singing News Radio continues to work with Bible League International to buy Bibles and put them out to new Christians across the globe, we felt a perfect tie-in was the Down East Boys song, ‘Beat Up Bible.’ We are so pleased to have the Down East Boys and Sonlite Records working with us in November to give copies of their project One Day In The Past to some of our donors,” says Greg Goodman from Singing News Radio. “In order to achieve a beat-up Bible, you have to place it in the hands of someone who is going to use it and gather all the knowledge they can from it. We know that is the work that Bible League is doing daily!”

Greg Bentley from Crossroads said joining the effort to spread God’s word was a no brainer, especially because “Beat Up Bible” was a perfect match for the campaign.

“I’ve heard many stories of families and churches in foreign countries sharing one copy of The Bible between many people because they do not have the resources to have their own copy. And how it becomes tattered and torn from the use,” says Bentley. “To be able to team up with the Bible League and Singing News in this effort just seemed like the icing on top of the cake since the song ‘Beat Up Bible’ will be the #1 song for the upcoming December chart. To be a part of getting the message around the world is part of our goal. We are thrilled to contribute to such a great cause.”

Those interested in contributing can do so on the Singing News Radio website, by clicking on the Bible League International link.
