Featured: Popular Gospel Playwright and Movie maker Tyler Perry

Madea Goes to Jail
just opened on February 20th! For those of you who haven't gone (that includes myself) I suggest that you go and check it out. I've received consistent feedback from Tyler Perry Saints and Aints- it's said to be pretty darn HIGHLarious while dealing with some serious issues, which we all know is a Perry Signature. Once again he's brought some all-star heavy hitters to the plate, amongst those included are: the talented Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher), Keshia Knight Pulliam ("RUDY" The Cosby Show) and Tamela J. Mann (Meet the Browns, but mainly "Kirk Franklin and tha Family" don't play!!)

Check out this Trailer:

It's tha Questions
Over the decades, Gospel lovers and Music heads around the globe have witnessed the transition of secular artist into the Gospel Music Arena. From Elvis Presley's cover of Amazing Grace to David Banners surprise cameo on Mary Mary's "Super Friend" we have waved our hands in praise or scratched our head in bewilderment to the double-dutch moves of these popular music artist. How does a listener feel when a vocalist goes from secular to gospel BACK to secular again? Or how does an audience respond to their favorite "rump shaking" crooner singing bout the sweet hand of Jesus? What about gospel artists like Yolanda Adams who covered "Sweet Thang" at a televised tribute to Chaka Khan? It's just tha questions ya'll.... and while I can't judge an artist's personal experience with God, I can't help but think...Hmm, interesting. But like it's written, God rises and shines the sun on all of us...and for that, Let everything that has breath "PRAISE THA LORD!" Makes sense. :-)
