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.

ARMY OF THE LORD — As Gore hinted, it was, by all accounts, because of her tenure in the military that essentially allowed her to draw close to God, a development that, much to her delight, drove her to the purpose for which she was created.

As for her competitive drive that has greatly enabled her to discover a greater version of herself, Gore credits her awe-inspiring journey as a disabled Army veteran, a stint that spans nearly two decades.

“I have always been competitive through my years of service,” Gore explained. “And so as I became closer to God, I found out what my true calling was — using the three steps (assist servant leaders to discover their purpose, exercise their power, and walk by faith to live and abundant life).

So here I am, ready to motivate, inspire and encourage servant leaders to reach their destiny.”


And boy is she putting forth a valiant effort in the process, all the while God continues to strategically enlarge her territory, in large part because of her steadfast act of obedience.

Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want.

We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

Atlanta businessman Kent Osbourne defies odds as high school dropout, emerges as a successful entrepreneur

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

 

Might as well go ahead and get this part of Kent Osbourne II’s testimony out of the way.

He’s a high school dropout.

DRAMATIC COMEBACK FOR THE AGES — A native of Melbourne, Florida who currently resides in Atlanta, Kent Osbourne has emerged from being a high school dropout to becoming the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

“I dropped out of school in the ninth grade,” the 40-year-old Osbourne told Making Headline News during an exclusive weekend interview.

As if that wasn’t enough to shakeup and rattle the overall landscape of Osbourne’s young life, his bolting high school prematurely had eventually given way to a flurry of other issues, considering he wound up becoming a convicted felon amid what he describes as “all kinds off oppositions,” not to mention what he referred to as a slew of “roadblocks, mountains, storms, disappointments, and letdowns.”

Still, even in the wake of his assortments of obstacles — a host of problematic occurrences that would have caused some to throw in the towel — a rather dramatic sequence of events arose of the life of this resilient young man whom, all things considered, was determined to defy the urge to quit.

How could that possibly be for a high school dropout whose decision to put his education by the wayside was supposed to have to disrupt his ability to succeed, reduce his effectiveness, thus live and dwell on the larger side of God?

“Failure was not an option,” Osbourne explained, fielding the question as if he expected it. “I was determined to succeed.”

Osbourne, in fact, recalled vividly those days during which no would hire which, truth be told, was quite understandable, considering he didn’t possess a high school diploma behind his name.

Still, just like God, he had other ideas.

“When no one wanted to hire me, I said I would start my own business and hire myself, so that’s what I did,” Osbourne said.

Much to his delight, he had done just, having become owner of not one, not two, but three businesses, a trend that has benefited him mightily throughout the years.

A native of Melbourne, Florida who currently resides in Atlanta, Osbourne is the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

WHAT ABOUT KENT OSBOURNE? www.kentosbourne.com

HOW YA LIKE ME NOW? Even in the wake of his assortments of obstacles — a host of problematic occurrences that would have caused some to throw in the towel — a rather dramatic sequence of events arose of the life of this resilient young man whom, all things considered, was determined to defy the urge to quit.

A little more than two decades removed from having dropped out of school, it’s safe to assume that “proud” undoubtedly is the operative word, particularly as it pertains to recalling Osbourne’s unlikely success story, given many would believe that this thriving entrepreneur was set up to fail miserably.

Still, just like God, he had other ideas.

“I always have been independent since a youth,” Osbourne said. “I never wanted a handout.”

For that reason, he sensed that the most logical remedy was to turn to selling drugs a reasonable outlet to survive and make ends meet.

“I became a big time drug dealer,” said Osbourne, who also started a record label labeled entitled, ‘Rapid Fire Records 2 LLC.’”

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM — Even after being released from prison at 22 years of age, Osbourne was not to be outdone. Heck, if nothing else, he was determined not to become so consumed with the dreaded street, a trend that could have very well sent him back to prison, or perhaps to his grave all too soon.

Even after being released from prison at 22 years of age, Osbourne was not to be outdone. Heck, if nothing else, he was determined not to become so consumed with the dreaded street, a trend that could have very well sent him back to prison, or perhaps to his grave all too soon.

“Even when I was in the streets at 22, I was always a boss, whether it was selling drugs or running my record label,” Osbourne explained. “I’ve always had that entrepreneur spirit.”

To his credit, the only things that has changed with regard to exemplifying an “entrepreneur spirit” is that Osbourne is generating his income the old-fashioned way.

He’s earning it.

Legally, mind you.

“When the going got tough, the tough got going,” said Osbourne, whose business venture caters to people of all ages. “Now that I have God on my side Who gives the increase. Nothing can stop me from accomplishing my goals. As long as I keep God first, I’m going to accomplish so much more. This is only the beginning.”

Today, unlike never before, Osbourne doesn’t shy away from the notion that his primary mission through his business ventures is to provide service to people, save souls, touch lives, and also to motivate, inspire, and empower others to live to their fullest potential.

“I was inspired to do all this by a man in prison,” Osbourne said. “He told me if I wanted to be successful I needed to seek God. Once I listened to this man who came from the same dark place I did, I went to church in prison like he told me to, and the rest was history.”

It is, by all accounts, because he heeded some worthy advice and counsel while behind bars that Osbourne is yet walking in the divine purpose for which God created him.

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — Today, unlike never before, Osbourne doesn’t shy away from the notion that his primary mission through his business ventures is to provide service to people, save souls, touch lives, and also to motivate, inspire, and empower others to live to their fullest potential.

On April 19, for example, he will be afforded the opportunity to share of his life-enhancing testimonies during a Houston-based correctional institution black tie event.

To his credit, his itinerary is starting to fill up mightily, given he’s scheduled to make public appearances in several places across the country through the end of the year.

So you might wanna book him now while you can.

“What I like most about being my business is that I’m able to make my own decisions, work when I want, work how long I want, work as hard as I want, make as much money as I want, and don’t have to worry about anyone telling me what I can, and what I can’t do,” Osbourne said. “You have the same ability I have if you would just transform your mind, and change the way you think.”

Much like he did some two decades ago.

Look at him today, living out his dreams, thus walking in the purpose for which God created him.

So much for dropping out of high school way back when.

Are Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradford Herbalife International’s best kept secrets?

TEAM BRADFORD — It is, by all accounts, due in large part to Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

Sean. Dawn.

Dawn. Sean.

While their ages are separated by nearly eight years, one thing is for certain.

This amorous couple is virtually inseparable.

Sean Bradford, in fact, is 41 years of age and will celebrate another birthday in October. His prized companion, Dawn Bradford, on the other hand, is 48 and will celebrate Year No. 49 in December.

Collectively, the two steadfastly prove that age isn’t merely a factor, especially as it pertains to possessing and savoring authentic love and health. 

TEAM WORKS MAKES THE DREAM WORKS — Having at their disposal a solid, dedicated supporting cast is extremely vital, particularly with regards to achieving their routine customer services goals and objectives, the Bradfords acknowledged.

“We work on teaching about living a healthy active lifestyle,” Dawn Bradford told Making Headline News this week.

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to the Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, most notably as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

“Our personal mission is education,” said Dawn Bradford whom, along with Sean, will host Herbalife Opportunity Meetings (or H. O. M.) once a month starting in August. “We work on teaching about living a healthy, active lifestyle.”

And here’s the caution: there are no quick fixes, the Bradfords are quick to point out.

“We don’t rely on a quick fix or a temporary solution,” said Sean Bradford whom, along with his wife, conducts what they call a free-and-open-to-the-public 3 Fit Clubs Weekly with their business partner and fellow team member Coach Shantel Tillman. “We want people to understand that this is truly a life-changing and lifestyle long term endeavor. How we fuel our bodies is in direct correlation with how we feel, walk, talk, and interact with others. It is not about a specific look or physical aspect. It’s about an overall feeling and doing your best every single day. It all goes hand in hand and works together.”
