Gospel Artist & Radio Personality Carl B. Phillips creates platform for Detroit Indie Gospel Artist
Detroit Independent Gospel Artist Showcase Labor Day Weekend
Since releasing his first independent gospel CD, "Great Rain", earlier this year, Carl has learned of the challenges indie gospel artists experience to get exposure for their music. With that in mind, Carl decided to organize the Detroit Indie Gospel Artist Showcase.
Performers scheduled for the showcase include Carl B. Phillips and Friends, who recently had two singles ("Meeting In The Air" and "I Know What God Did Last Summer") on the Nielsen's/ BDS Gospel charts; Stacye Cranford, who has performed at the Palace of Auburn Hills during the Detroit Piston's games; and J Bethel and Spoken For, whose new single "I Gotta Praise In Me" features Sunday Best Winner Tasha Page-Lockhart. Also appearing are new artist Tiffany Nicole, psalmist Ryan Rutley, vocalist Joyce Marie Holman and saxophonist Jeremy Cornelius.
The admission is free and the featured artist will have CDs available for purchase. For more information, visit http://carlbphillips.com.
