Watch Chevelle Franklyn’s Full Performance At The Potter’s House (@chevellfranklyn)

At the end of March Psalmist Chevelle Franklyn delivered a powerful performance, albeit virtually, at one of the most prolific megachurches in the United States, The Potter’s House (pastored by world-renowned Christian leader Bishop TD Jakes, Snr.).

No stranger to the global stage, this is the first time a Caribbean act has ministered on a platform of this scale to such a diverse online audience. It has been reported that the church has approximately 30,000 members; and following the Covid-19 global pandemic, millions more now viewing online.

Recently, in speaking of FranklynBishop Jakes said the following: “Clearly, there is a special anointing on this woman! Her vocal ability is a weapon against the enemy! The world, especially at this time, must sing aloud ‘Go In Your Strength.”

Be on the lookout for Chevelle Franklyn‘s upcoming project, “South Wind Vol 1,” which has been rescheduled for release later this year.

Sizzla Seems To Be Taking Issue With The Lockdowns In Jamaica?

International recording artist Sizzla Kalonji seems to be taking issue with the current covid-19 protocols in Jamaica. A few days ago he posted a screen shot of a Google search, which outlines the list of human rights in Jamaica, along with the hashtags #blackpeople #freedom.

According to the Google search, the list of human rights are as follows: “These include right to life; the right to personal liberty; freedom of movement; freedom from inhuman treatment; enjoyment of property; freedom of conscience; freedom of association; respect for private and family life; and freedom from discrimination.”

One can only assume that he has made this post to show his followers that their freedoms are being trampled on.

Orville Ovi Sutherland Shares Visuals For His New Single “Serious Time”

At the end of March, Island Worship Productions, the imprint owned by veteran gospel singer Jermaine Edwards, released a new single titled “Serious Time.” The gospel track is performed by Orville Ovi Sutherland with additional vocals by Edwards.

As the name implies, “Serious Time” serves as a reminder of the times we are living in.
