Inspirational music “It Girl” Koryn Hawthorne continues to shatter records as a new artist, making history as the first female artist to hold the #1 position on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart for 26 weeks with her energizing single, “Won’t He Do It,” remaining #1 on the latest chart (for the week of September 15, 2018). Hawthorne’s chart-topping success surpasses the previous record of 25 weeks set in 2013 by Tamela Mann with “Take Me to the King.”
In addition to the new chart milestone, the 20-year-old’s official “Won’t He Do It” music video has garnered over 1.4 million views and counting since its debut exactly one month ago. “Won’t He Do It” – the lead single off her chart-topping debut full-length album Unstoppable – is also currently #1 on the BDS Gospel chart (for 18 weeks) and #1 on the MediaBase Gospel chart (for 17 weeks).
Hawthorne is maintaining a busy schedule this fall, including a recent return appearance on the hit television series Greenleaf in last week’s episode. The 2018 Dove Awards double nominee, who is up for New Artist of the Year and Contemporary Gospel/Urban Recorded Song of the Year, will be performing at the award show on October 16th. She is touring in September and November with Jonathan McReynolds on the Make Room Tour. The tour includes sold-out stops in Brooklyn, Washington DC, Richmond, Philadelphia and Atlanta, and also makes stops in Memphis and St. Louis.

UK based Ghanaian international Gospel songstress Diana Hamilton is feverishly preparing to release her new ‘iBelieve’ album at the 2018 London edition of her now popular ’Experience with Diana Hamilton’ event.
A representative of the artiste’s management team, 1615 media, hinted that they are extremely excited about her latest album which is packed with all new material and believe that her fans will be treated to some of the finest music from her latest and previous work including the now ever so popular ‘Mo Ne Yo’ at the concert/Album Launch. ‘Mo Ne Yo’ was released on the 1st of August 2018 and has been trending extensively on social media with nearly a million views on YouTube.
Diana’s management also revealed that, on the much anticipated ‘iBelieve’ album, Diana has worked with award winning versatile Ghanaian producers Kaywa (David Kyei) and Koda (Kofi Dua Anto) to produce songs that are set to be classics like Diana’s previous hits ‘Work in Progress’ , ‘Yehowa Bewhe’, ‘All About You’ and ‘Ensi Wo Yie’. If worship is your thing then you will not be disappointed by Diana’s ‘Worship Medley’ which was produced by the talented Shadrach Yawson and the already released ‘Fresh Oil’ (co-written with Cwesi Oteng) and ‘ Lord of Hosts’ produced by Ghana’s premier gospel band PL Crew.
If Diana’s performances at recent events (including Adom Praiz) are anything to go by, then all indications are that attendees will not be sitting on their chairs much as the music will keep them on their feet to dance or fall on their knees to worship all night. The very talented Niiella, Charlotte Appiah as well as other surprise artistes will be supporting Diana on the night at the ultra modern City Gates auditorium in Clements Road, Ilford.
Tickets are available to buy at www.dianahamilton.com and from Eventbrite To reserve your tickets or for information call +44 7906 932670

At a challenging time in the nation, Nosa uses his voice to inspire as he releases his latest single “We Will Arise” featuring Lagos Community Gospel Choir (LCGC).
“Time to be the new hero! Time for the change we so desperately seek. But that change is YOU.
“A new mindset. A new mentality. A new approach to doing things. And it’s up (not down) to the individual for these things to happen. It’s up to YOU to decide whether to break a cracked system further, or to make a difference! Any leadership is usually a reflection of its societal values. You can’t produce beyond your nature!
“I wrote “WE WILL ARISE,” a very simple song, to speak to this understanding.” – Nosa
