Celebrating Black History Month
Celebrating Black History Month
AMERICA HONORS FEBRUARY AS BLACK HISTORY MONTH

GospeLive, Sharing the Gift of Gospel Music

When "The Harlem GospeLive Revue" sings, "Jesus Loves Me," somehow you know they mean it. 

They may start with the traditionally slow version of the famous hymn, but as they get going, the piano, bass guitar and drums soon follow. With the boom-boom of the drums pulsating across the stage floor, the wonderful voices blend together and increase in intensity and passion.

As they sing the chorus - "Yes, Jesus loves me; yes, Jesus loves me; yes, Jesus loves me; the Bible tells me so," the spiritual energy that comes over the audience seems to soothe whatever problems anyone may be having. For the entire length of the show, the air in the room is cleared and charged with an energy that’s almost palpable.

Nationalities worldwide have been moved through the conviction of Black gospel music and as GospeLive raises their hands in song, I began to understand why I felt myself being moved to tears. Never have I been around a group of singers whose warmth and sincerity of purpose radiated like GospeLive. I had to meet the show’s Producer and Director Maurice Lynch to find out what made his show such an emotionally moving experience. His comments and observations are below. 

"When GospeLive sings, it's a spiritual, but also a fraternal feeling that the audience experiences. Often, in the middle of the show I might feel an old gospel song stirring within me that would be perfect to share with the audience, but wasn't rehearsed for the show.  I may not be able to stop myself from singing it, the spirit may be just that strong, but by the time I finish the first sentence of the verse or chorus, the cast and musicians are already singing with me! It's a spontaneous event that just seems to captivate and move the audience as much as it does us. It's fraternal, because Gospel music emanates from our soul and it’s the music we've shared and heard throughout our lives as Black Americans, like a soundtrack, or like soul food, but it’s also reverent as we get to share the gift of Gospel with others.  It’s a very satisfying experience.” Lynch stated.
 

Lynch continued, “Black religion and Gospel music for African Americans is very expressive - there are no boundaries within the genre. Our music is an extension of our style as a people. Visit any African American church on Sunday morning and you will see ladies in grand hats and men in sharp suits and you’ll find  real “American Idols”, talented, supremely gifted singers from small congregations to modern mega-churches! The music is heartfelt and straight from the soul and an ‘electricity’ is always in the air.  It’s been said that Gospel is God’s music and while I totally agree with that, I’ll have to add that African Americans present God’s music in a way that is uniquely our own. Our musical style is a mirror and extension of our creative and fashion sense.” 

Maurice encourages all who attend their shows and are touched by the music to develop a greater knowledge of the benefits to be had by extending their vision heavenward and past the music.

As America pays tribute to African Americans during February, Black History Month, a month that honors Blacks for their many contributions to society, the music of the Black American church that makes up Gospel music's core continues to heavily influence the culture and spirituality of a people, a musical genre, and its numerous fans across the globe.

"Carolina Low Country Experiences Spiritual High" with "The Harlem GospeLive Revue"
"Carolina Low Country Experiences Spiritual High" with "The Harlem GospeLive Revue"
Elegantly dressed ladies lit the stage and gents clad in tuxedos declaring for everyone to "Celebrate!," Director Maurice Lynch and the sophisticated revue vamped by an equally impressive band went "back to the beginning" with "Amazing Grace", "Steal Away"," We Shall Overcome" and "I Don’t Feel No Ways Tired". “Precious Lord," which preceded with a story. When Thomas Dorsey wrote the song it was considered contemporary for its day, but it is now a revered traditional gospel classic, Lynch recalled to the audience before an incredible soloist moved center stage and belted the gospel classic. GospeLive also moved the audience, paying tribute to Whitney Houston with the Dottie Rambo hit "I Go to the Rock".

For the second half the GospeLive Tenors regally took the stage now donned in formal tail coats. The Tenors brought the house down to cheers and applause with wonderful harmony and classical flair performing the patriotic anthem “The Battle Hymn of the Republic". Setting the stage, as soloist Simone Brown took everything to a "vocal high with" "One Night with a King", before the night went into deep church mode.

Just when you thought the show was over GospeLive once again filled the stage again performing a great arrangement of the Edwin Hawkins classic "Oh Happy Day" and " The Style of Gospel Hit " Praise Him" the latter of which built into a hand-clapping, tambourine-shaking crescendo. After the best singing and music anyone could ever hope to hear the night ended with the Diana Ross hit" Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand."

This show did not disappoint it is truly 90 minutes of spirit-filled gospel energy.

Which took the Carolina Low Country to a spiritual high in Sun City’s Magnolia Hall Theatre.

Lifestyles Director Jackie Bates said she wanted to bring present multicultural headline entertainment to Sun City, and this is just the beginning.

Josh Milan Honeycomb Music
Josh Milan Honeycomb Music
Josh Milan is one of those rare artists whose music is truly timeless. You can play his re-mixes today and they still sounds as fresh as they did 16 years ago. His catalog totals over two hundred published works making it the largest catalog produced by any single entity in the genre. As artist and businessman, he has been involved in almost every facet of the music business.

Maurice Lynch, Executive Producer at GospeLive Productions and Entertainment, knew that for the re-mix of their new single "These Are The Good Times" that Producer Josh Milan at Honey Comb Music was the one for this project. After speaking to The Queen of Gospel Energy Dawn Tallman & vocalist Shelia Slappy, he knew that not many could come close to the artistry and spirit of Josh Milan.

As a remixer, Josh has worked on projects for Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Macy Gray, Jamiroquai, Lisa Stansfield, Babyface, and countless others.

Josh's musical influence on New York's night life is unprecedented. Josh and Kevin Hedge co-owned and promoted Club Shelter a premiere legendary dance spot in New York City.

After 25 years on the scene, Josh Milan's touch is golden. Josh stated, "Music is Gods voice and my ears are pressed against his lips."  "I believe that music is an extension of a man’s inner self". He grew up in a religious household in Brooklyn, N.Y. where  he learned to play the organ in the church. Josh later teamed up with Chris Herbert and Kevin Hedge and the three of them formed the performing/production team known as Blaze.

Josh's re-mix of "These Are The Good Times" is  driven by a soulful up-tempo beat, with a smooth Milan modern contemporary dance groove beckoning listeners to dance.

"These Are The Good Times" featuring Maurice Lynch, Shelia Slappy & The Harlem GospeLive Revue aka G-Live is available worldwide, and can be downloaded and purchased at your preferred online music store and select retail outlets.
