I had the pleasure of interviewing Tasha Cobbs once before, but I didn’t get to post the interview. The heavens smiled on me a few weeks ago and I had the privilege to talk with her once again. Tasha is an amazing person, and I’ve never met her face to face!! I really enjoyed my talk with her! We got to talk about her latest album Grace and the success of her single Break Every Chain, as well as the expansion of her iLead Escape Conference. Check out the interview below and make sure you hit up Tasha via her Twitter: @TashaCobbs and check out the iLeadEscape link for more details!

I’m late, so what! The visual to Michelle Williams’ (former Destiny’s Child member) gospel comeback record, “If We Had Your Eyes” dropped! Check it out below. This for me also marks the first time I’ve listened to the song. Not sure why I waited so long, as I have been anxious to hear what Michelle was going to do next! Alas, I love the song upon first listen. I’ve always loved Michelle’s quirky vocals. I like the video too, directed by Derek Blanks, the video serves Michelle in a fashionable way. I like the black dress she wore towards the end and Michelle just looked stunning the whole video! Loved the feature from LeToya Luckett (those DC girls stick together, ya hear)!! Nice touch by adding the Trayvon Martin salute! So yea, peep the video and let me know what you think! Go Michelle and welcome back!

Yup, it’s going down! Since Preachers’ Wives failed to gain a supportive positive following, Oxygen is going to give it a go with their reality series Preachers of L.A. set to debut on Oct. 9th. Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon and Bishop Noel Jones are just a few of the pastors who will take to our television screens this fall. Viewers will be treated to a look behind the scenes of these pastor’s church lives and personal lives. I am interested to seeing what exactly these pastors will reveal, like I for one did not know that Deitrick had returned to the pulpit. He was pastoring in Detroit, but seemed to just leave that post. I also am interested in the fan feedback, y’all went IN on Preacher’s Wives!! So check out the Preachers of LA trailer below and let me know, will you be tuning in?
