9/4/2009 - Gospel Music Channel to Promote "Speaking Louder Than Before" Tour Including Special Labor Day Ticket Sale via JeremyCamp.com
SEATTLE, WA...September 4, 2009...In one week, BEC Recordings' artist Jeremy Camp will head out on his first headlining tour in two years with Natalie Grant and label-mate Bebo Norman. The "Speaking Louder Than Before" tour kicks off on Thursday, September 10th in Panama City, FL and will continue across the nation until November 21st.
Gospel Music Channel (GMC) is partnering with Camp and this Christian music powerhouse line-up as the official media sponsor of the tour. Gospel Music Channel will promote the tour and present exclusive updates both on-air and online at (http://www.gospelmusicchannel.com). Tune in weekdays from 8 AM to Noon Eastern to GMC's morning show Joyful Noise Café, for the latest news on the "Speaking Louder Than Before" Tour.
As part of a Gospel Music Channel special Labor Day promotion, tickets will be available for $15 beginning on Saturday, September 5th, through Jeremy Camp's website. The $15 tickets will run until Wednesday, September 9th, while supplies last. Fans who haven't yet purchased tickets or those that want to bring a friend can purchase their tickets on Jeremy's homepage.
The message behind this tour is clear: to start "Speaking Louder Than Before." To get fans excited about getting involved locally, there is a local ministry outlet in many of the tour markets with Camp's Speaking Louder Ministries. For example, at the first night of the tour, concert goers are asked to bring spaghetti sauce, noodles, canned fruit or soup to the show for Soaring Ministry Food Pantry. To learn about other opportunities to get involved during this tour, visit the ministry homepage (www.speakinglouderministries.com). This 30+ city tour will make a huge impact in each market and with Gospel Music Channel partnering along with tour sponsor Compassion International, the reach is even greater.
2/18/2009 - Gospel Music Channel to Air 2009 Trailblazers Celebration Feb. 22
NEW YORK, February 18, 2009 – The Gospel Music Channel (GMC) will broadcast the world premiere of the 2009 BMI Trailblazers of Gospel special Sunday, February 22 at 8 p.m. EST as part of the channel’s celebration of Black History Month. Co-hosted by Grammy Award-winning and platinum-selling star Kirk Franklin and BMI’s Catherine Brewton, the event honoring pacesetters Twinkie Clark, Donald Lawrence, and CeCe Winans features inspired live performances from a selection of contemporary stars and gospel powerhouses including Lalah Hathaway, Kim Burrell, Kierra “Kiki” Sheard, Donald Lawrence, LeJuene Thompson, Arnette Murrill Crooms, Israel Houghton, and Tommy Simms.
Each Trailblazers gala is an invitation-only luncheon, and GMC’s look inside offers the first public access to this must-see celebration of gospel music’s finest. Encores of the special will air Sunday 11:00 p.m. and Monday, February 23 at 10:30 p.m., EST.
Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark has enthralled listeners for decades, both through her acclaimed solo work and leadership of gospel’s royal family, The Clark Sisters. A skilled musician dubbed “Queen of the B3 Hammond Organ,” Clark also wields aerobatic vocals only matched by her sublime knack for composition. Clark boasts two Grammys, and in addition to penning staples for The Clark Sisters, she has composed songs for artists including Rev. James Cleveland, Al Green, Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers, Esther Smith, James Moss, Dave Hollister, Xscape, and Mary J. Blige. Legendary BMI gospel songwriter Twinkie Clark was recently recognized alongside her sisters at the 2007 Stellar Awards, where the influential group received the award for Most Noted Achievement.
As a producer, BMI songwriter, choir director, and singer, Donald Lawrence’s influence on contemporary gospel music is unparalleled. His starkly original work with the multiple award-winning Tri-City Singers first revealed a rare and innovative artist capable of musical brilliance and authentic Christian praise, while his work as a producer emboldened projects by gospel icons including fellow honoree Twinkie Clark, Kirk Franklin, and Karen Clark Sheard. The recipient of numerous BMI Christian and Stellar Awards, Lawrence has also penned songs for The Clark Sisters, the Tri-City Singers, his own well-received solo projects, and more. His growing catalog includes 2007 BMI Christian Award-winning “Blessing of Abraham” and “Encourage Yourself,” both recorded by Lawrence with the Tri-City Singers.
CeCe Winans’ career has generated a trove of top-shelf industry accolades comprising numerous Grammy, Stellar, and Dove Awards. Her work with her brother in duo BeBe & CeCe Winans expanded the boundaries of gospel music and welcomed new listeners into its fold, while her solo projects reintroduced an artist comfortable with evolution and the spotlight. A BMI songwriter for more than 20 years, Winans has created a thick catalog of compositions including BMI Christian Award-winning song “Say a Prayer,” “Addictive Love,” “Well Alright,” “Pray,” and many more. Gold- and platinum-selling albums bejewel her résumé, and her latest effort Thy Will Be Done promises more acclaim.
Gospel Music Channel is the nation's first and only 24/7 television network devoted to Gospel/Christian music and can be seen in more than 40 million homes on various cable systems and nationwide on DIRECTV on channel 338.

With the current economic environment, Winter Jam 2009 projects increased attendance as their recession-proof “no tickets” policy continues to allow consumers to simply pay $10 at the door for admission with no advance ticket sales.
This strategy resulted in sold out arenas in 2008, with total paid attendance of 311,836 with an average nightly attendance of 9,172. This accomplishment was not missed as Winter Jam was the fourth ranked tour on Pollstar’s 2008 First Quarter Ticket Sales Chart, topping other music tours including Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus, The Police and Foo Fighters.
