PBX Music Group presents...
D a ' Gatherer's g r e a t e s t testimony of the goodness of God occurred On September 9, 2013 when he found out how blessed he really was. While sitting in a church service, Da' Gatherer had a massive stroke that stopped his heart from beating. He was rushed to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL where surgeons performed emergency brain surgery. His wife Cynthia Beach, who just released her single, "One More Sunny Day," was truly thankful for each day that the sun rose and the Son gave her husband yet another day. Cynthia remained by her husband's side from the day he entered into the hospital until the day he walked out of the hospital doors.
The Multi-Award-Winning Gospel Vocalist Releases His Dynamic New Single, "I'm Blessed"
enry T. Beach, Jr. A.K.A. Da' Gatherer has been performing gospel music for over four decades. He has appeared on stage with renowned artist such as The Canton Spirituals, Melvin Williams, Canton Jones, The Williams Brothers and many others. Da' Gatherer performs a mixture of music from traditional to urban gospel. One of his greatest hits, "Genuine," from his self-titled album was nominated for a 2010 Stellar Award for Best Rap/Hip Hop Gospel CD of the Year. A pastor, songwriter, artist and producer, Da' Gatherer believes God has called him to draw people together through music to worship and accept Him as their personal Savior. Born in Forrest City, Arkansas, Da' Gatherer now lives in DeFuniak Springs, Florida with his wife, Cynthia, and children. He pastors New Birth Fellowship Church in Florida. Being a pastor is my calling, being a singer is my gift," he says.
Da' Gatherer has recuperated and has now released a dynamic new single entitled, "I'm Blessed" from his latest CD, "My Journey." "I'm Blessed" follows his previous hit single, "Genuine." All of the music by Da' Gatherer is available on PBX Music Group, Inc., an independent label that he and his son, Purvis Beach a.k.a. P-B-K, share together. Listen to "I'm Blessed" and "Genuine" at tracks #3 and #8 on Gospel USA Magazine's compilation CD Volume 16 in this issue.
Why the name Gatherer? "God called me to gather people together and witness of his goodness through ministry and song," he says. His musical accomplishments include: 2013 Worship & Ministry Network's ZETA GMA winner for Contemporary Artist of the Year; 2012 Newsome Award winner for Male Vocalist of the Year; 2011 Rhythm of Gospel Award winner for Best Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year; 2010 Gospel News Award winner for Outstanding Male Vocalist; 2010 Stellar Award nominee for Rap/Hip-Hop CD of the Year; 2008 Newsome Award winner for Male Vocalist of the Year; 2011, 2010, 2009 & 2008 featured in

ottie Peoples first single, I Got This, from her CD, I Got This - Live! – landed in Billboard's 2013 Top 50 Gospel Songs (the year's most popular gospel songs, ranked by radio airplay detections as measured by Nielsen BDS). Now, the Grammy® Awardnominated, Dove, Stellar, GMWA, NAACP Image Awardwinning singer is set to release her second single and live video called, Back To The Old Church! Dottie states: “I chose Back To The Old Church as my second single because so many people around the country have told me they don’t hear enough of the old style traditional Gospel music that so many of us love. I wrote and recorded this song with the old country church service in mind – where everybody is having a good time praising God. It’s a song that my generation can really relate to but I also believe the young folks can experience something that maybe they were never exposed to. I always love to go back to my roots as I go forward in my life.” Listen for and request Back To The Old Church at your favorite radio station and at popular video outlets. Available on her DP Muzik Group label. For upcoming tour dates, the latest news, photos, stream of songs from the upcoming CD and more – check out her newly launched website, www.dottiepeoples.com, ‘like’ her on Facebook at facebook.com/officialdottiepeoples and follow her on twitter.com/dpmuzikgroup.

artistprofile Dialtone Records presents
Pastor Mitty Collier on her powerful, new single, "At Calvary" rom Dialtone Records comes the second single release from Pastor Mitty Collier entitled, At Calvary. The single is from her latest CD, I Owe It All To The Word. Make no mistake about it, there is a message in the music of this 'rock your world' 'slamming' track which applies to everyone who really understands God's grace and salvation. To add fuel to the fire, Pastor Collier's Live in Concert DVD, which includes the video for At Calvary, can be seen worldwide on demand at www.christianlibraryondemand.com and also on Connected TV which airs in major markets such as Philadelphia, PA; Baltimore, MD; and Virginia.
She was ordained in 1989 and later appointed Pastor of More Like C h r i s t Christian Fellowship Ministries in Chicago, IL.
For the new generation which may not be familiar with Pastor Mitty Collier â€“ she began her career singing in church and as a part of The Charles Hayes Angelic Choir and The Lloyd Reese Singers. After being discovered in 1960 by Ralph Bass, a scout for Chess Records, Pastor Collier was signed to the Chess label. She later signed with Peachtree Records in Atlanta, GA. With her diverse styles of singing and her powerful, well-blended, soulful voice â€“ Mitty had no problem becoming a successful R&B artist with popular releases on both labels. In 1972, Mitty left R&B music altogether and began singing and recording gospel music.
At Calvary is produced & arranged by Calvin Bridges and Mitty Collier. Executive Producers are Yasufumi Higurashi and Akira Kochi. The album and single is available on Dialtone Records which is headed by Eddie Stout, CEO (512.228.8434). The project is distributed by Allegro Media Group (www.allegro mediagroup.com/allegro) and available at Walmart and Target. For digital downloads, visit Amazon.com and iTunes.com now.

In 1993, he resigned his position to pursue his ministry, publish his book, release his CD, and start a publishing company. Today, he is paving the way for Christian poets to use their poetry as a ministry. MrPoet uses the art of writing not just for art sake. Through MrPoet's poetry, one hears the voice of one transformed from valleys of darkness to a new birth with heights of life filled with divine light. He uses the voice of an inspired, blessed, anointed African American man of God, ordained of God to write poetry. MrPoet reaches out to give encouragement and hope to those rendered silent by life's circumstances. He uses his poetry to minister to the lost, grieving, oppressed, poverty-stricken, elderly, desolate and alone and encourages everyone else to do the same. MrPoet's peers have said; "Gimbu's poetry is like trying to put a tornado into a match box. His words are simple, easy and understandable even for one at a 4th grade level but with meanings far escalating the college level." MrPoet speaks out as a man of vision and wisdom, chosen by God to change the way the world perceives poetry as a ministry and the way Christian poets are viewed by society. He promotes using poetry to

Cherry On Top N
ah-tarsha Cherry, at the age of three, graced the stage with her mother – who is also a gospel singer – and as they say... the rest is history. By the age of 10, she had performed with and backed up gospel legends such as The O'Neal Twins, Savoy recording artist Dorothy Bloat and gospel great Dorothy Norwood. She has performed at prominent venues such as the Apollo Theatre, the Cotton Club and others. As Nah-tarsha grew and crafted her talent, she continued to record with her mother as a duet called, Simply N-D. Their project received major market airplay and they were a part of the 2006 Bobby Jones Gospel Summit. In 2011, she released her first solo EP, "Glad," and in 2012 released a single entitled, "Strong." "Strong" is available on iTunes, Googleplay and Amazon, and is accompanied by a music video which can be viewed on YouTube and Gospelvideotv.com. The video gives insight as to the type of artistry Nah-tarsha brings to the genre of gospel.
Nah-tarsha has been able to mix jazz, R&B and even a little rock and roll with her unique blend of traditional gospel. She uses her gift as a blessing to the unchurched as well as the Body of Christ. This fall, watch for her highly-anticipated new album, "They That Wait." For more information and booking, visit www.nahtarshacherry.com. Photo credit: gingerbreadimages.com. April - May 2014

A Message from God from MrPoet
Where He moved? Who He used, and what did He do? The Acts you send me will be collected, a n d published in a b o o k called, "The Believers Anthology of World Testimonies." Send your testimony today to Christian Poets Universal Ministries, P.O. Box 38426, Detroit, MI 48238 or send it to me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, you’ll be glad you did! Act Now!! Please don’t leave here without sharing your testimonies with the world! Peace.
am of the opinion that everyone can be a poet, so let me define this statement. All believers in Christ are to be a doer of the Word of God, as it is written in James 1:22. The Bible instructs us all to be a doer of the Word, and not a hearer only. The word 'doer' here means for us all to be a maker, producer, author, performer and a poet of God’s Word. Yes, you heard right... a poet of the Word of God. A Prophet is defined as an inspired poet. God has poured out His Spirit upon all flesh. The Word also says that many things did Jesus, and had they all been written, the world could not contain the books that should have been written by those who have been a witness to His voice, presence, mysteries, power and deliverance. My brothers and sisters, do you not have a testimony? Therefore, I am making a call out to you to participate in a universal work called, "The Believers Anthology of World Testimonies." Please summit: The how, when, where, who, and what Jesus Christ has saved you from. What have you seen and heard from the Lord? Write your testimonies down on paper or help someone else write their story down, and send it to me in 350 words or less per act. List the many acts of God in your life: How? When? gospelusamagazine.com

askdr. carl Dr. Carl answers your questions Dear Dr. Carl: I am very stressed out and my heart is broken. My church is without a pastor for the third time in 12 years. The atmosphere at church is very unpleasant. People are mean to each other, and there is a lot of mistrust and deceit. Some people are involved in power plays and ego trips. There is a lot of competition, and there is absolutely no spirit in the atmosphere. My church is not like it used to be, but I don’t want to move my membership because it’s my church and I love my church. Please add me and my church to your prayer ministry list. – Broken Hearted
Dear Broken Hearted: I am sorry to hear that your church is in such a condition. It is difficult to understand the move of God when trouble like this comes, but we have to rely on Scripture and our faith in God’s Word to get us through. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit is our comforter, and will enable us to make it until change comes. Please read Isaiah 57:15, Psalm 34:18, Psalm 51:17, Proverbs 18:14, and Matthew 5:3. These scriptures assure us of God’s concern when our hearts are broken. Then read in Matthew 16:18 that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. Hide God’s Word in your heart, depend on the Holy Spirit inside of you to comfort you, and believe that God’s Word is true. You will make it! – Dr. Carl Dr. Carl Bentley is an author, radio show host and Pastor of 28 years. His popular radio show – called Ask Dr. Carl – airs weekly on WTOY-1480 AM in Roanoke, VA.
