artwork for Te Williams Brothers single What God DoesAfter a six year hiatus, gospel icons The Williams Brothers are enjoying chart success with their latest single, the slow-medium tempo “What God Does” from their forthcoming album Timeless on their own Blackberry Records.

“What God Does” recently ranked #26 on the Mediabase Gospel Chart. The song is a reminder that God is still there, doing what only He can do, no matter what is going on and we can still count on God.

The Miami Mass Choir recently released a new culturally diverse music video, “Good News,” a fusion of Cuban sounds with Gospel and English and Christian Latin music and Spanish. Directed by Chinedu Ernesto and filmed throughout Miami, the video features vocalists Tony Lebron and Paula Coleman.

Founder and director of Miami Mass Choir, Marc Cooper said, “With the Latin appeal of the song, and along with South Florida being a melting pot of many nationalities including the Cuban-American community, we wanted to feature the Little Havana area in this music video.”

The Song, “Good News” is from the Billboard Chart topping album THE MIAMI MASS CHOIR LIVE: At The Adrienne Arsht Center.

Smoke Norful, gospel recording artist and pastor of Chicago’s Victory Cathedral Worship Center will release his first book, Take The Lid Off: Trust God, Release the Pressure, and Find The Life He Wants For You (Thomas Nelson Publishing) on September 5.
