INTERNATIONAL TV DEBUT FOR 11 YEAR OLD KENZIE WALKER

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 18, 2015 – 9:31 am -

KENZIE WALKER is an amazing 11-year-old vocalist with an even more amazing story! The pint-sized prodigy recently made her international television debut on TBN, the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Grammy award winner Jason Crabb welcomed the young singer to the set of the Praise the Lord television show taped before a live audience at Trinity Music City in Nashville, TN.

The program originally aired on April 15, 2015 and is now available on-demand via iTBN.org. Click here to view the entire show.
Walker shared her incredibly gripping story with the audience and performed a few selections from her upcoming EP, Smallest Gifts, set for release on May 19, 2015.
Born in the Hunan Province of China, Kenzie was abandoned in a paper box at a train station clothed in nothing more than a light blue jacket. In the early morning hours, this innocent baby girl was found by a kind stranger and taken to an orphanage in China where she lived the first year of her life. This little girl was adopted by a couple from Texas approximately at one year old and raised in the United States.
From that moment, Kenzie began to grow up and live as any normal American child, with one extraordinary exception.
Early on her parents noticed Kenzie had a special fondness for anything musical. She would sing along with clock chimes, memorize lyrics to songs she heard and sing complete songs when she was barely able to talk.
Fast forward through the last 11 years on Kenzie’s unusual life journey and not only has she performed the National Anthem for the Major League Baseball team the Houston Astros but has landed a record deal after being discovered by veteran producer and 2015 GRAMMY Nominee, Mark Carman.
At such a young age, Kenzie is already set to share her musical talent with the world. Smallest Gifts, Kenzie’s debut EP will be released by Mansion Entertainment and distributed by Sony/RED on May 19, 2015 and a tour targeting Southeast Asia in late 2015 is in the planning stages.
“Heaven Come Down,” Kenzie’s first single, is already making an impact with radio programmers warmly embracing the music.
To view the TBN appearance – hosted by Jason Crabb and featuring Craig Wayne Boyd, Jimmy Sites, the Fairfield Four, and the McCrary Sisters – you can click this link: http://www.itbn.org/index/detail/lib/Networks/sublib/TBN/ec/w3NmxrdDrRudmSVpmf4x-qCpJRS3z9Th
Kenzie is exclusively represented by MCM World Media.

In addition to a Grammy nomination in 2015 for “Best Gospel Roots Album,” Brown has also garnered some of the strongest ink of his career. He is set to appear in Country Weekly, in an issue that will hit newsstands later this month.

Welcome to Inspiration Featuring Jason Crabb Now Available on DVD

Jason Crabb

By Candi Combs

In a world where there are few good choices of entertainment, there is now a new option. Welcome to Inspiration is now available on DVD. Crabb shares the screen with popular stars, Larry Gatlin, Christy Sutherland, Jackie Stewart and Regina McCrary in a faith based movie that brings much more than entertainment.

inspirationThe movie is set in a small town where people share each other’s struggles as they walk through life. There are storylines within the film that cover a vast array of social issues. Crabb portrays a man who mentors a young musician who is striving to see a bigger stage to perform. Other characters are dealing with marriage, military service, grief, and each turns to faith while seeking God’s wisdom.

The gospel message is shared through a series of “revelations” that are biblically-based principles for better living. As stated by the movie’s producers in a recent press release, “In moments of providence, our characters meet mysterious teachers like the STREET SWEEPER, who openly share the Seven Revelations of Irrefutable Success at just the right moment. The revelations are Bible-based principles that point toward a life that is increasingly more spiritually fulfilling. True Success is not so much about material gain as it is about finding true meaning in life. We’ve heard them before: “it is more blessed to give than receive, knock and the door will open“, but have we really explored them? As our characters struggle to find their way, they transform their lives by looking to the Lord for their path.”

“I am so very honored to be a part of a project that communicates the values of the Bible that are real and relevant to our lives today,” Crabb has said.

Music for the movie is a score of Contemporary Christian as well as a good mixture of original Country Gospel. Crabb and Gatlin are both featured artists as well as the Lee University Campus Choir. Sutherland brings her own brand of music along with her vast acting experience.

This movie is one that appeals to all age groups and all phases of life. There is no doubt that each viewer will feel that they have walked the streets of the small town while being “inspired” to walk a better life!

 

The DVD is available at retail outlets nationwide.
