Published by Torrence Glenn on Monday, January 24, 2011 at 6:16 pm.

Sup folks! i know, I know! it’s been a little while.  It’s just been a busy time of year and most time I’m a one man band so I got a little behind and overwhelmed but I’m BACKKKKKKKK.

But even better, it’s Celebration Of Gospel week! This Sunday, yes THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 30 Celebration Of Gospel 2011 premiers on BET at 8pm! Every year the show gets better and better and I’m particularly excited about this year because of the fresh faces on the show and some of the crazy fun and interesting behind the scenes  footage I captured along with some special content that I think you’re going to enjoy. So everyday this week up until the big night I’ll be bringing you new exclusive video and content from the Celebration Of Gospel. Read the rest of this entry »

Published by Torrence Glenn on Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 12:22 pm.

Last night, we taped our 11th installment of BET’s Celebration Of Gospel and even as I type this I’m still “IN.” It probably sounds like we say it every year but it’s true, it was one of the best ever! The night was full of highlights and moments and the Celebration Of Gospel veterans and newcomers all tore it down. Here’s the rundown. Read the rest of this entry »

Behind The Scenes: Bobby Jones Gospel October 10

Published by Torrence Glenn on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 1:23 am.

Sup folks. This will be quick because I got some good, good, good video for you to watch below. Last week we premiered the 30th season of Bobby Jones Gospel and didn’t want to stop the fun there. We brought our behind the scenes of each episode to watch rehearsals and catch up with the artists backstage. Lots of fun moments. Shout out to my quick and nimble videographer Mike Bennett! (You’d be surprised at how fast we have to run around, ha!)

This week we caught up with Jonathan Nelson, Isaac Carree and The Soul Seekers and we had a BUNCH of laughs. Watch! Read the rest of this entry »

Listen Up!: Jonathan Nelson

Published by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at 9:01 pm.

So one of the releases I’m really excited about this week is the new CD from Jonathan Nelson and Purpose “Better Days.” A few months ago we premiered his first single “Expect The Great” on the blog and you guys went CRAZY for it. It’s a dope track and I have to admit, I’ve been listening to the CD for a few weeks now and so is the CD. Read the rest of this entry »

The Gospel Music Community Remembers Walter Hawkins

Published by Torrence Glenn on Monday, July 12, 2010 at 7:11 pm.

As we all know, one of the greatest singers, songwriters and vocal producers, Bishop Walter Hawkins died yesterday from complications with pancreatic cancer at the age of 61. It’s still rather surreal and feels like it just shouldn’t be and pulling together this blog is no easier than yesterday’s.  As we, members of the gospel music industry, deal with this tremendous loss; many have taken the time to remember Walter and his legacy so I wanted to share with you. So I’ll be passing the mic to some industry colleagues and artists now.

Had To Share: Gospel Brat Pack Reunion This Summer?

Published by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at 7:03 pm.

Hey folks. This one will be short but if you didn’t go to the Gospel Music Workshop Of America (GMWA) last year, then you may want to get a plane ticket to Cincinnati, OH this summer.  Now this post will be what I call “good gossip.” It’s technically all hearsay and I don’t know if it’s completely true and the information is changing as we speak but I got it on good enough authority that I thought it was worth sharing. So if ANY of this changes, don’t go around saying I got the story wrong, ok? Thanks! Read the rest of this entry »

Just Saying HEY!

Published by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 6:36 pm.

Sup folks!

I know it’s been a minute and I promised I’d be better in 2010 with the regular updates, well I promise, I will.  The last few weeks have been crazy. Between Stellar Awards, Sunday Best Auditions and the recordings of Greg Roberts & Soulful Celebration and Jonathan Nelson & Purpose on top of my regular job at BET.com, I’ve been stretched all the way thin!
