Christian music's largest annual tour will get a special urban infusion next year. The Winterjam 2014 Tour Spectacular will include both Lecrae and Derek Minor as a part of their artist lineup. Beginning in January, the showcase will feature some of the top names in Contemporary Christian Music including The Newsboys, Tenth Avenue North and Thousand Foot Krutch. The move is no surprise for Lecrae with the upcoming Church Clothes 2 release, but it is particularly good exposure for Derek Minor.

Though it has been speculated for quite some time, it appears that fans finally have proof that Trip Lee has not retired from music. The veteran artist and author released an Instagram promo video today, teasing his supporters with sounds and clips from his studio work. Following his most recent album The Good Life, Trip announced that he would take some time away from music to focus on his pursuit of pastoring. But his list of features only increased during the hiatus, leading many to speculate that the break would be short-lived. While that speculation has been confirmed, it's impossible to say what the return will ultimately look like. Stay tuned for more information regarding Trip's return to music!
The entire ministry, group, and project “Red Society” is based off of a single concept- to witness to a generation that is covered, purified, and washed by the blood of Christ. The group emerged after the three members ministered together, and worked with various broken families and teens for months in the city of Gainesville, Georgia. Their eyes were drastically opened as they realized countless families are suffering in their own home. There was no need for foreign missions to acknowledge the people next door who desperately needed food, clothes, and most importantly the love of Christ.
Beautiful Eulogy, the group consisting of label-mates Braille, Odd Thomas, and Courtland Urbano, sophomore album is rising up the charts. The Portland based group's newest project, despite being made available for free and for retail, is ranked high on iTunes.
For many years, Christian music award shows have been a source of frustration rather than encouragement for the emerging Christian Hip Hop community. Eligible slots in appropriate categories are typically given to artists who don’t fully resonate with the target audience. But for this year’s awards cycle, fans definitely have more to be encouraged about. The Stellar Awards announced their first ballot of nominations for all categories in preparation for their 29th annual show, and the list of urban nominees is an impressive collection of credible names.
