Michelle Williams is making moves for Black Jesus from ‘Good Times.’ She sent the praises up at ‘The Michelle Williams Experience’ event on Wednesday (November 6) in Los Angeles.
The God-fearing songstress joined forces with C+D’s second favorite prayer partner (right after Kerney Thomas, of course) Fantasia for the remix of “If We Had Your Eyes.” Take a listen to the track at the jump.
In an exclusive interview with The Christian Post, gospel recording artist (and alleged owner an impressive holy grail) Deitrick Haddon gives his opinion on why Christians need to get over the possessions of the ministers featured on ‘Preachers of L.A.’ and focus on winning souls for Jesus and more.
Read excerpts from the conversation below.
On the runaway success of ‘Preachers of L.A.’
“It was just the way I envisioned it, and I’m humbled to be able to be a part of such a groundbreaking, history-making product. I was walking one day in the middle of my test, when I was going through, about my divorce and I had a baby out of wedlock and the baby was on the way. I was walking, I was praying, I just knew I messed up. And God was encouraging me and telling me, ‘Deitrick it’s going to be okay. You’ve got a storm coming but I’m still with you through it all.’”

“This show documents a journey of transparency from one man to the next as they endeavor to lead others to their own truth and self-discovery,” said executive producer Holly Carter, who is the daughter of a pastor and an industry veteran in faith and inspirational development and programming. “It’s a dose of reality and a pound of redemption coming from a creative team reared in the church.”

Until the cloak of social media ignorance is removed by the masses for all of eternity, the featured church choir has made it their praise mission to chastise both sinners and saints in a passive aggressive manner. We lift our hands in the sanctuary, not our iPhones for selfies!
Now turn to your neighbor and say “Neighbor, the pictures that you post, you need to quit it ’cause you doing the most. You need to keep your business off of Facebook.”

Margaret Carter, grandmother of Chief Keef, is splitting her White Owl cigars with a lot less tension in her hands tonight. The controversial 17-year-old rapper was released from jail on Thursday after serving 60 days for violating probation on a gun charge.
“I’m so glad he’s coming home because it hurts my soul that he’s locked up,” Carter said a day prior to his release. “Oh, it wears and tears on me.”
