As a well-known evangelist who travels the nation spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, it might not come as a great surprise that Beverly Broadus has tried to use her influence to change lives for the better.

In fact, Broadus is a 47-year member of her local Baptist church.

But at an age when most people are slowing down she has embarked on a fledgling career in the music industry.

This gives her something in common with her more famous son, Calvin Broadus — also known as Snoop Dogg. Add a comment

Captured is an album that was derived from a personal burden on FLAME's heart. When reflecting upon the state of the world and the church, FLAME noticed that people fell into two categories:

1. being captured by sin and still under its grip and control; or
2. having been captured by God and under His rule and sway.

Yet, he saw something similar in both groups: the need to be recaptured. The non-Christian needs to be captured by God for the first time, while the Christian needs to constantly be captured by God's beauty, His holiness, and His grace. As the psalmist says in Psalm 42, "As a deer pants for flowing streams so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God for the living God..." This is the language of one who is captured and is being captured by a holy God and a sweet Savior.

FLAME takes you on a journey from what its like to be captured from birth to childhood to adulthood and then throughout your Christian journey. FLAME shares many personal stories of how God captured him and is continuing to capture him. He also gives a glimpse of how he and all the saints will eventually be captured once and for all in the presence of God. This album is a plea and a call for God's created people and His children to follow hard after God and to cling to Him. Who or what has captured you?

Reach Records roster including Lecrae, Tedashii, Sho Baraka, Trip Lee, and DJ Official are on a 30 city tour called 'Unashamed 2010: The Movement' where most dates have sold out. The sold out dates are more often than not seeing a 2nd earlier show, which is not common and nearly unheard of. If you haven't heard about it yet, Rapzilla.com is sponsoring the tour and hosting a contest to win tickets to the tour stop near you. Check it out and enter to win here.

That is a great accomplishment by a well deserving team at Reach Records. Follow these dudes while they follow Christ. Add a comment



A new song "Bury Me" with Lecrae & Tedashii was performed at the Unashamed Tour in Orlando. This song is probably from Lecrae's upcoming album 'Rehab: The Overdose' or Tedashii's next project due in 2011. Some claim it's an upcoming 116 Clique song, but we do know that recording for their new group album hasn't started yet.



What do you think of the song? And which upcoming album do you think it's from? Add a comment
