New online station R&P Radio (Rhythm & Praise) kicks off today. R&P Radio feature artists include Kierra Sheard, Kirk Franklin, Erica Campbell, Jonathan McReynolds, Koryn Hawthorne, Jor’Dan Armstrong, and Uncle Reece.
“We joined forces with Those Baxters and are curating a radio station that’s different from contemporary gospel,” Emcee N.I.C.E. says. “This is out of the box R&B gospel.” Dubbed R&P, Gospel’s R&B, the station will break the mold of traditional and contemporary gospel. “You’re so used to all of the traditional stations being into quartets and choirs and the traditional gospel,” Emcee N.I.C.E. says. “Here, you’ll be able to hear a Jor’Dan Armstrong do a ‘90s R&B inspired song for God. That’s essentially what’s going on in a lot of these records coming out.”
Dunham+Company’s Rick Dunham discusses the topic of racial tension on their latest blog post. “This is the Imago Dei… the image of God that every human bears. And this is what makes each and every human equal to each other.”
