Janet Jackson’s ‘State Of The World’ Tour Is On Fire! (@JanetJackson)

janetjackson_4_mikebrooksJanet Jackson’s State of the World Tour, which kicked off in Lafayette on September 7th, is, by all accounts, a complete success. Though there are still a number of dates remaining – the final show will be in December – MJ Magazine has gotten first hand feedback from several concert goers, and the general consensus is that Miss Jackson still has the rhythm for the nation.

With all that she’s been through, one would think Janet Jackson would want to recline into the background, opting to stay out of the public’s eye, but that is definitely not the case. Janet is fully engaged in her tour and very active on social media to boot. One source told us, “It’s as if she is excited about having her life back, the way it’s always been.”

New EDM Gospel Video: Jermaine Gordon – Thine is the Kingdom (@iWriteiInspire)

Jermaine Gordon - Thine is the Kingdom EDM

The award-winning lyricist, composer, producer and Jamaican-born gospel artist, Jermaine Gordon has released an electronic dance music version (EDM) of one of his hit songs.

The song has become a huge favorite Jamaican worship song being performed in many Caribbean, English-speaking and Spanish-speaking countries in both North & South America. The mix was done by Dan Giffin, a drummer and audio engineer from Indianapolis, trained as a Mastering Engineer by the Multi-Platinum, Grammy, and Emmy-nominated audio engineer – Daniel Wyatt.

Minister Gordon, hopes this will become a favorite in the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, US and Australia and says it is certainly the first of more EDMs to be done. He also believes other artists will follow suit, as this presents an alternate style to music typically being produced in Jamaica. Fans of Jermaine Gordon can expect more new releases in 2017, as since doing his debut album in 2012, fans have been eagerly awaiting new music.
