Kansas City author Annisa Davis-Jackson acquires ‘divine healing’ in a book that took roughly a decade to assemble


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

GOD’S PLAN — Much to Annisa Davis-Jackson’s delight, her divine healing had eventually come wrapped up in the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events.”

Annisa Davis-Jackson tried all she could to provide a thorough explanation for why it was absolutely essential that she make her authorship debut.

“It was an issue that buried so deep in my heart, never to be brought back up,” Davis-Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “And somehow, it finds me.”
Amongst the things about which Davis-Jackson had ultimately discovered was that God was very much in the midst of what undoubtedly was an integral part of the divine purpose for which she was created.
“The events that the most high brought me through were simply undeniable, bizarre…and extraordinary circumstances,” Davis-Jackson explained. “I was being used to unveil a truth I felt I was not equipped for. In the process of my obedience, I gained supernatural strength, which was essential to my healing.”
Much to Davis-Jackson’s delight, her divine healing had eventually come wrapped up in the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events.”

A spiritually-empowering written work that essentially a decade in the making, Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” depicts the life of her father, Annise Davis Jr., whose prosperous and well-publicized football career ironically was destined for greatness, yet his life cut short amid his untimely murder on Christmas Eve in 1987.

Mired by tragedy, or a chain reaction of events that hovered over his entire family emotionally and spiritually, this author writes, Annise Davis Jr.’s children subsequently grew up without knowing the truth until a spiritual revelation was given to Annisa Davis-Jackson, the family’s beloved middle daughter.

It was Davis-Jackson, in fact, who vividly discovered that such turbulence in her life were destined by what she describes as a “powerful divine design,” one that would suddenly uncover and unveil a truth, she writes.

As Davis-Jackson explained, this truth was hidden under “an ocean of lies,” drowned with deception, and the corruption of wrongful convictions behind the true circumstances surrounding her father’s death.

Interestingly, as she walked into such a tumultuous season, it was later revealed that her mission was to seek all truth, which would later turn into a spiritual journey, revealing the Glory of The Most High, she acknowledges.

REMEMBERING DAD — A spiritually-empowering written work that essentially a decade in the making, Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” depicts the life of her father, Annise Davis Jr., whose prosperous and well-publicized football career ironically was destined for greatness, yet his life cut short amid his untimely murder on Christmas Eve in 1987.

An ex-college and NFL football standout, Annise Davis Jr., starred at the University of Missouri of the then-Big 8 Conference. Consequently, he was later enjoyed a professional stint after being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Davis-Jackson began assembling her book in January 2009, a project that was finally published on November 30, 2018.

For Davis-Jackson, composing “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” was very much worth the length of time invested into this essential written document.


“After battling political districts concerning the cold case, (it was) later uncovered to be an unsolved murder of my father for reopening,” Davis-Jackson recalled. “It became evident that emergency healing was needed for others who have experienced similar loses and injustices.”


Interestingly, Davis-Jackson deemed it necessary to emphasize why her new book is synonymous to what she describes as a “mother of all bombs.”  “Its content is beyond average and will become a blueprint to others finding themselves and having the courage to stand up for what’s truth,” Davis-Jackson said. “In the pursuit to truth, they find healing within.”

To her credit, the feedback since the release of Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” has been nothing short of remarkable.


REALITY SETTING IN 

Mired by tragedy, or a chain reaction of events that hovered over his entire family emotionally and spiritually, this author writes, Annise Davis Jr.’s children subsequently grew up without knowing the truth until a spiritual revelation was given to Annisa Davis-Jackson, the family’s middle daughter.

“Very, very positive from anyone who learns or reads the story,” said Davis-Jackson, adding that other books — “a series of books all branched on to Memoirs Of A Broken Side,” she said — are surely forthcoming.

“I hear the word ‘phenomenal’ from everyone who reads. It gives the reader a crash course on how to recognize signs and symbols and the spiritual signs that are given to us daily to complete task to stay away from harm, etc.”

For Davis-Jackson, composing “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” was very much worth the length of time invested into this essential written document.

Generally, Davis-Jackson reiterated that the presentation and promotion of her book has come full circle, largely because of her resiliency in following the spirit of the Most High.

“The anointing through the investigation allowed me to gain the attention from political sources, prosecutors, and judges,” Davis-Jackson said. “Because the story is so powerful.”

Not to mention a constant page-turner for anyone who possesses this life-enhancing book.

Interestingly, Davis-Jackson deemed it necessary to emphasize why her new book is synonymous to what she describes as a “mother of all bombs.”  “Its content is beyond average and will become a blueprint to others finding themselves and having the courage to stand up for what’s truth,” Davis-Jackson said. “In the pursuit to truth, they find healing within.”

Accomplished New York entrepreneur DeShanda Carter: ‘I just want women to know together is better’


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS SUPER BOWL 54 WEEKEND SPECIAL REPORT


Simply amazing.

Much to the delight of DeShanda Carter, it would be especially befitting to assess her progressive, thriving business venture with those two words.

For Carter, there are a variety of reasons Simply Carter Corp has become a constant fixture throughout the New York metropolitan area.
“My personal mission for doing this work is to empower women of all ages,” Carter, 45, told Making Headline News this week. “Let them see the grind of the everyday women trying to make it…get empowered by the everyday woman.”
Widely regarded as the parent company of Carter’s Diva Glam Mobile Party — which specializes in hosting parties and other events for girls of all ages — Carter’s endeavor also includes what is known as Simply Carters Kids, which is believed to be the only U. S. children’s car service with its own security app.

MAKING DREAMS A REALITY

HEART FOR PEOPLE — For DeShanda Carter, there are a variety of reasons Simply Carter Corp has become a constant fixture throughout the New York metropolitan area.

Also, under the Simply Carter Corp’s umbrella is Simply Carter Events, which customarily offers its array of intriguing photo booths.

And, then there is the Carter Brand, a flourishing venture that offers a variety of all natural and homemade skin care products.

A native of Harlem, New York who was raised in the nearby Bronx, Carter is a product of the historic New York City school system.

A devout woman of faith and accomplished author, who has always exemplified an entrepreneurial mindset, Carter’s Simply Carter Corps has become known for serving women of various walks of life, most notably through empowering and helping them discover their true passion in business.

“I just want women to know together is better,” said Carter, explaining why it is imperative to esteem others daily. “We don’t always have to do it alone.”

A devout woman of faith and accomplished author who has always exemplified the entrepreneurial mindset, Carter’s Simply Carter Corps has become known for serving women of various walks of life, most notably through empowering and helping them discover their true passion in business.

As Carter recalls, she was left with no choice at one point in time to fortify her vision on her own, a trend that, in turn, had ultimately catapulted her to her divine purpose.

“I did it alone because no one else saw my vision…and maybe it wasn’t meant for them to see,” Carter said. “I believe differently. I may not see your vision, but I will support and encourage you until the end.”

A retired New York City Department of Correction Captain, Carter was enrolled in college for two years before she eventually delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

To her distinctly unique credit, she’s been nothing short remarkable.

Not bad for notable actress and longtime member of the Screen Actors Guild, who has appeared in the major motion picture, Dangerous Minds, as well as a host of stage plays and made a number of television appearances.

Having adopted a keen passion for writing and singing, this multitalented businesswoman’s reputation is such that, well, she’s been all about her business — first in Corporate American, now as an entrepreneur.

“There was no competition in mind when creating my brand,” said Carter, whose Simply Carter Corp caters to women of ages. “I just want women to win. When they look at me, I want them to see the potential in them.”

A business endeavor that is steadily making a strong case to attract more of a national presence — Carter has put her entrepreneurship mechanics on display in Atlanta, among other establishments — it’s safe to assume that Big Apple-area businesswoman’s best and brightest days are well ahead of her.


SIMPLY CARTER CORP MEDIA KIT: http://www.simplycartercorp.com/media-kit/

“It is important to inspire others daily, so they can be encouraged to live out their passion,” Carter said. We only have one life to live.”

So why not make it a simply amazing one — much like Simply Carter Corp?

A company that has garnered a global presence, considering it accommodates clients outside of the United States, GBC Worldwide Financial is comprised of more than 100 like-minded business professionals, many of whom are proven to be fully committed to fortifying efficient financial services, education and training, as well as a variety of entrepreneurship opportunities.

Having been blessed to have put his immeasurable entrepreneurship gifts on displays in a number of places around the globe — most notably in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Jamaica, St. Lucia, The Bahamas, and Mexico — Bradley credits his tenure in the United States Marines, coupled with the valiant support of his wife, Latrisa Bradley, RDH, his family and a host of college classmates for having fueled his fervent desire to make his dreams a reality.

Texas author A’Londa L. Barber’s spiritually-empowering new book generating an array of favorable reviews


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For A’Londa Barber, a Dallas/Fort Worth area resident who is native of El Paso, Texas, she was afforded the golden opportunity sometime last year to take yet another massive step toward her destiny, courtesy of her book entitled, “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.”

DALLAS — Nearly four decades — or 38 years to be exact.

That is the timeframe by which it had taken A’Londa L. Barber to admittedly come with the notion that God had strategically set her aside for His use.
“It took me 38 years to own up to who I was and to accept the life God had for me, because I spent so much time trying to live up to others’ expectations of me and who I should be,” Barber, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, explaining vividly the memorable developments that had given way to her having composed a new book.

“So many times, we hear about a man being on the downlow, but hardly do we hear about women who are on the downlow,” Barber said. “I know my journey was not just for me, but also for others to hear me share my testimony through transparency so they can hear about God’s grace and unconditional love.”

A book that was officially published last spring, Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” depicts the life of an Indigo which, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, is a woman torn between her flesh and her spirituality.

“Like so many women, she was robbed of her innocence as a child by a sexual predator,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.’ “That unwelcomed introduction to adulthood led her down a path of promiscuity and eventually a bisexual lifestyle.”

Moreover, as she grew into an adult, this Indigo had ultimately turned to the church for support and spiritual guidance only to find that some of her harshest critics sat in the pews next to her.

A MUST READ — A book that was officially published last spring, Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” depicts the life of an Indigo which, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, is a woman torn between her flesh and her spirituality.

All things considered, this author vividly reminds her reading audience that where man failed, her Lord and Savior prevailed, she writes.

Simply put, this is, by all accounts, her memorable and much-anticipated journey to deliverance, one that proves you can rise after you fall as long as you have faith as your crutch.

Having begun writing the first installment of her book in 2018, Barber has announced that “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 2” is presently in the works and is slated to be published in March 2020.


“No matter where you are in your life, accept it and walk in your truth,” said Barber, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience in “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.’ “Our purpose here on earth is to fulfill the plan which God has designed for us, no matter what man thinks.”


As expected, the feedback since the release of Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” has been nothing short of impression.

All of which much to the delight of this Christian-based author, practically sums up this book aligns with the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“Even though the book is fiction, it is based on true events of my life,” Barber explains. “This book is part of my purpose, because it allows me to tell my story of a sista on the downlow.

“So many times, we hear about a man being on the downlow, but hardly do we hear about women who are on the downlow,” Barber continued. “I know my journey was not just for me, but also for others to hear me share my testimony through transparency so they can hear about God’s grace and unconditional love.”

“It took me 38 years to own up to who I was and to accept the life God had for me, because I spent so much time trying to live up to others’ expectations of me and who I should be,” Barber, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, explaining vividly the memorable developments that had given way to her having composed a new book.

A book series she hopes will ultimately be transformed into a stage play, Barber has announced the “We D.I.D. It Book Tour” is forthcoming along with a half dozen other authors during which they will share their journeys from tragedy to triumph, all the while inspiring others’ life transformation.

“As far as personal speaking engagements, I have quite a few scheduled, but between the book tour and LonnieB Creative Designs/Branding, I am pretty busy,” said Barber, a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and co-host of My SiSStas Keeper  online radio show.

A resident of nearby DeSoto, Texas, Barber is a member of Jubilee Community Church in DeSoto, which is pastored by Gregory Drake.


SIGNS OF THINGS TO COME 

Having begun writing the first installment of her book in 2018, Barber has announced that “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 2” is presently in the works and is slated to be published in March 2020.

Dallas’ Brandie Pyburn-Smith fulfilling her divine purpose as the face of Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc.


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3 KJV)


PEACE OF GOD 

DESTINY STEPS — Brandie Pyburn-Smith routinely goes to great lengths to exemplify that she has a heart for people. Consider, for instance, her unyielding agape love she steadfastly exhibits as the director and chief executive officer of B.O.S.S. Marketing and Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc., which is her Dallas/Fort Worth-area non-profit organization she’s responsible for establishing.

DALLAS — If there’s one thing that virtually no one can debate when it comes to Brandie Pyburn-Smith, it is this:

She routinely goes to great lengths to exemplify that she has a heart for people.
Consider, for instance, Pyburn-Smith’s unyielding agape love she steadfastly exhibits as the director and chief executive officer of B.O.S.S. Marketing and Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc., which is her Dallas/Fort Worth-area non-profit organization she’s responsible for establishing.
Having discovered her keen passion for speaking before the masses during her youth, Pyburn-Smith’s notable objective through her organization is centered largely on her gifts as a Christian Motivational International Speaker.
In addition, Pyburn-Smith’s organization customarily helps market women, most notably through empowerment whereby they are afforded the golden opportunity to create platforms, as well as showcase their business and products.

Also, Pyburn-Smith’s venture has become a fixture, in large part because of its REAL TALK LIVE, an empowerment session in its group that addresses real life issues, business-related subjects and, most of all, the goodness of God.

“The goal is to eventually open several homes to house women and children and assist them with education, financial stability, credit repair, and show these women and children that God loves them and so do we,” Pyburn-Smith, 41, told Making Headline News this week.

Pyburn-Smith’s endeavor began as a Facebook group approximately eight months, a venture that was comprised of 54 members. The organization has since expanded to 474 individuals, or as Pyburn-Smith acknowledges, “God-fearing, business-minded women that I absolutely adore and love.”

A native of Dallas who works primarily as an Operation Analyst, Pyburn-Smith doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s been blessed mightily to function in her element, largely because God’s has strategically set her aside for His use.

“God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called,” Pyburn-Smith says without hesitation. “My life has been nothing but a ministry, a gift of many talents, and God has guided me to a path that gives Him the glory, but provides me with His purpose.”

The mere fact that God has singled out Pyburn-Smith to oversee the day-to-day operations of a flourishing nonprofit organization is something about which she doesn’t take lightly.


“I was chosen for the path I’m on and I’m so propelled to finish my God given race until the end,” Pyburn-Smith said. “God’s opening doors that no man can shut. I started this organization and business from a vision God gave me in church one Sunday. He said, t’s your race; run it well.’”


For starters, Pyburn-Smith’s endeavor began as a Facebook group approximately eight months, a venture that was comprised of 54 members. The organization has since expanded to 474 individuals, or as Pyburn-Smith acknowledges, “God-fearing, business-minded women that I absolutely adore and love.”

“We empower each other,” Pyburn-Smith said. “We are growing into the knowledge of God with each other and we are learning to support one another.”


NEW BOOK ON THE MARKET

A 1997 graduate of Dallas’ Lobias Murray Christian Academy, Pyburn-Smith is currently enrolled at Independence University, which based out of Salt Lake City, where she’s pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with emphasis in Human Resource.

In 2005,  Pyburn-Smith earned a trade license as a nail tech from State Beauty College. She later would become a Medical Administrative Assistant graduate at nearby Everest College in 2013.

Pyburn-Smith has announced the forthcoming release of her first book entitled, The Mess That Gifted The Messenger, which is scheduled to debut on January 31.

As for her thriving, progressive business venture, Pyburn-Smith credits her family, friends, fellow church members, and the Sisterhood Group STGP, Inc. for having inspired her to move forward diligently with her God-mandated assignment.

Now she convinced that Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc.’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“Yes, 2020 is going to be an epic year for us,” Pyburn-Smith said. “We have a fashion show were planning and a women’s conference. I have also been invited to speak at several events.”

Interestingly, Pyburn-Smith has announced the forthcoming release of her first book entitled, The Mess That Gifted The Messenger, which is scheduled to debut on January 31.

Having discovered her keen passion for speaking before the masses during her youth, Pyburn-Smith’s notable objective through her organization is centered largely on her gifts as a Christian Motivational International Speaker.

“This book is an awesome must read,” said Pyburn-Smith, whose written work is available as a hard copy or eBook for $10. “I feel it is necessary (to esteem other daily) because healing is a part of my life and I wouldn’t be where I am now if God hadn’t healed me,” Pyburn-Smith  added. “Women need to know daily that no matter what we endure, healing is for our soul and we are born to live until we die. I must encourage others daily, because it’s not needed, it’s necessary. My positive words can save a life or millions.”

After all, if there’s one thing that virtually no one can debate when it comes to Pyburn-Smith, it is this:

Los Angeles writer Derrick L. Faggétt makes his authorship debut in Soul Talk Volume 3


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NKJV)


MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR 

HE’S ALL IN — A native of Chicago, Derrick Faggétt has joined a gallery of writers to collectively assemble “Soul Talk Volume 3: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go and Let God,” an intriguing and spiritually-empowering anthology that is spearheaded by longtime philanthropist and multi-bestselling author Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

DALLAS — Fortunately for Derrick L. Faggétt, the golden opportunity had suddenly arisen.

And, for a man who’s proven to be after God’s own heart, he did the most logical thing he sensed was in his best interest.
He seized the opportunity to put his immeasurable gifts on display.
“I started my own business in the year of 2015,” Faggétt, during an interview this week from Los Angeles with Making Headline News, said, recalling the awe-inspiring developments that led to his having delved off into the world of authorship. “And as part of building a rapport with my clientele, I would share my testimony — a.k.a. my why I decided to do something different…outside the box.
“As I begin to share my story around the country, I would always get various individuals expressing that I should share my story with a broader audience and or consider writing a book,” Faggétt continued.
And the rest, as they say, was history.

It wasn’t long thereafter that Faggétt’s authorship debut would ultimately come full circle.

A native of Chicago, Faggétt has joined a gallery of writers to collectively assemble “Soul Talk Volume 3: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go and Let God,” an intriguing and spiritually-empowering anthology that is spearheaded by longtime philanthropist and multi-bestselling author Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

As Faggétt explained, he initially was introduced to the concept of becoming a co-author for Soul Talk Volume 3 approximately two years.

For what it’s worth, the opportunistic Faggétt is giddy he subsequently obeyed the Voice of God, a demonstration of faith that has given way to his having addressed in Soul Talk Volume 3 the subject entitled, “The Male-Man.”

“I guess in a nutshell, that was God’s way of telling me that I had permission, but it simmered for years until 2018,” Faggétt said. “The opportunity came knocking and I answered.”

For what it’s worth, the opportunistic Faggétt is giddy of that fact that he subsequently obeyed the Voice of God, a demonstration of faith that has given way to his having addressed in Soul Talk Volume 3 the subject entitled, “The Male-Man.”


“My message is that fatherlessness is a symptom of a bigger problem,” said Faggétt, who needed only three months to assemble his chapter. “This problem is their falling away from God‘s principles for the family and (fail to understand) what it means to be a kingdom man, or how to take steps to get the family back in God’s order.”


Interestingly, while Faggétt was raised without a father in the home, he still appropriately hints that notion shouldn’t merely deter the male to assume his rightful place in the home and in the Body of Christ.

“I would have to say the issue of growing up without my father,” said Faggétt, explaining why he elected to address such a pertinent subject. “(I wrote it because of) how many other men that I’ve had the opportunity to speak with who’ve been effected by fatherlessness, but don’t understand how to correct it generationally. Since most men are not at a healthy place to discuss it openly, I felt in some ways that since I went through it as well, someone needed to do something before it gets worse.”

The feedback, as expected, has been mostly favorable, Faggétt said.

“I have received very positive feedback — from men and women,” he said. “For example, (they’ve said) this is something that we need and that ‘We need more men like you who will speak the truth or admit there is a problem.’”

“As I begin to share my story around the country, I would always get various individuals expressing that I should share my story with a broader audience and or consider writing a book,” Faggétt said.

Now that Faggétt’s authorship tenure is underway, he has announced that he’s open to participate in any type of courses and or curriculum, most notably sessions that would center on helping or aiding in the behavioral changes for men.

“(We all can) agree that this conversation needs to take place,” said Faggétt, who recently established an organization known as Men of Fortitude. “Men have reached out asking how to get started or what can I do to get better or what steps can (they) take now.”

Aside from his newly-established organization, Faggétt has a few scheduled podcasts over the next few months during which he will promote his latest endeavor as an author.

“My plan is to acquire more speaking engagements as it pertains to helping men understand how to be men through Men and Fathers 101,” Faggétt said.

“Parenting a special needs child is definitely a challenge, which is part of my blessing,” said Amelia Faggétt, who spent better part of a decade to assemble her book entitled, Life With A Special Needs Child. “Not many can do it. I didn’t think I could. I’ve had good days as well as bad days, but more smiles than tears throughout my journey with my daughter, Melany.

“She’s had more surgeries before age three than most would have in a lifetime. If I can help the next parent or soon to be parents who has a special needs circumstance navigate through it better, then I’ve served my purpose. These are just a couple of reasons why I wrote this book and why it’s so important to share.”

Florida gospel recording phenom ‘4G’ making remarkable strides as the face of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC


Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 NIV)


4-GOD BE THE GLORY

GLOBAL IMPACT — Widely known amongst his peers as “4G,” Jimmy Gathers, 44, is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Above far as the above Biblical passage goes, Jimmy Orlando Gathers, Jr. spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, he raps, too.
“Aside from being in the music industry, on a personal level, it’s more about my family’s legacy,” Gathers, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the awe-inspiring events that have greatly afforded him the golden opportunity to function in his element. “Let me elaborate.”
Alright, then.
Have at it.
“Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”
Given the immeasurable strides Gathers have made in recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

Widely known amongst his peers as “Jay Gathers” — which is accompanied by the nickname, “4G” — Gathers is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

Credit the fact that he’s steadfastly on fire for God as arguably the grandest reasons why.

Because, after all, even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.


“(I love) providing great music, great entertainment, and giving people the message of the gospel,” said 4G, a native of Apalachicola, Florida. “More importantly, it blesses me to see people’s lives changed, because they can relate to the transparency in my music.”


A 1993 graduate of Panama City’s Bay High School, 4G earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University. Prior to that, he was enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, where he earned General Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Fire Science, which ultimately gave way to his becoming a certified fire fighter.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — Even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.

While 4G is fully aware that knowledge is power, music has always been his primary passion.

In fact, 4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created.

How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with two-time Stellar award winner Canton Jones,” said 4G, calling off names of gospel celebs as if he’s handing out diplomas. “He’s actually featured on four projects off my newly released album entitled, ‘Unqualified.’ “I also have collaborations with Mr. Del (previously of Three Six Mafia) and Born Divine of the Wu Tang Family.”

Wait. There’s more.

“I also have projects produced by well- known producers who’ve produced for other mainstream artists such as Supa Cool — Kevin Gates, Gucci Mane, Shaquille O’Neal — and Lady Trauma (Missy Elliot),” 4G said.

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”

“I’ve appeared twice on Bobby Jones Presents in Nashville, appeared on America’s Got Anointing (The Word Network) in Atlanta, performed the last two years at showcases in Las Vegas during the Stellar Awards, was an opening act for Le’Andria Johnson in Charlotte, appeared on the front cover of Soul Central Magazine (March, 2019 Edition), the front cover of Gospel USA Magazine (October, 2019 Edition), won the 2019 Holy Hip-Hop artist of the Year award in North Carolina.”

Hold up. He’s still not finished disclosing of his laundry list of accolades.

4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created. How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

“I’ve been nominated for numerous other (awards) to include as the V.O.G.M.A., Steeple Awards, and Soul Central Awards,” said 4G, who has been the beneficiary of ongoing media coverage and exposure.

As for the upcoming New Year, 4G is overwhelmingly enthused, in large part because greater is on the way, he said.

“(The year) 2020 is looking very promising as I’m planning more musical events at major churches in bigger markets, radio interviews, recording more visuals and music videos, recording and releasing more new music, etc.,” 4G said.


HOLDIN’ IT DOWN 

For what it’s worth, 4G emphasized, among other things, that his primary objective is to glorify God through his musical gifts, all the while leaving a last impression as a result.

“As stated in Proverbs 13:22, a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous,” 4G said. “When my father died years ago, he didn’t leave anything behind financially that I — as his son — could be proud of. That feeling that I felt during that time in my life is one I never want my sons and daughters to feel. That is what propels me daily in my business venture.”

Eloquently stated by a giftedly talented child of God, whose spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, raps, too.

Given the immeasurable strides 4G have made in his recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.
