Roger Samuels, considered one of the UK’s best gospel singers, has recently released a single, called ‘I’m In Love’, written by American gospel singer, Michael Bethany. He was one of the worship singers at Mission To London, and apparently Morris Cerullo loved his ministry so much, he booked him to fly out to the US to minister at one of his events. Roger will be going on a UK-wide tour alongside Trinidadian gospel sensation, Sherwin Gardner, when he arrives here this autumn.
Grammy Award-winning gospel artist and pastor, Donnie McClurkin, has formed a new record label called Camdon Music. Not only will it record artists, it will also teach and empower artists on how to negotiate their way through the music business. The label has already released music by two artists – Andrea McClurkin Mellini (Donnie’s sister) and Nancey Jackson Johnson. For more information, visit www.camdonmusic.com
