"I got Mozzy and...about

slated for a September 30, 2023, release. "A couple of them are my partners. Mozzy is like a brother."
Lil Dallas' story is like many young males from the inner city trying to survive with seemingly drugs as the only escape.
His story can be heard on the tracks of this new project. A native of North California, Lil Dallas did his time in the system
and the experience changed his life. His rap flow is sweet, but when he is assisted by other artists he really delivers! Some
of the artists on the "Finally Free" project include Mozzy, TeeJay3k, Seddy Hendrix, MMMonthabeat, MBKMoney, and
EazyMoneyLeek. "Life is too short," he told me when I asked about what he didn't know before he

"Uplifting Minds II" Enter Conference - Nov 5th - (562)-424-3836
Life is like a waterfall, forever flowing
of THE WEEK
(Los Angeles, CA) - The year 2022 was filled with record
breaking moments for Gospel singer, CeCe Winans. The chart-topping soloist completed a national sold out
tour; released her 6th book- "Believe For It: Passing on Faith To The Next Generation" (K-LOVE Books), taped 10
episodes for season two of her popular YouTube Show, Generations; hosted her first annual Generations Women's Conference that
drew thousands of registrants to Nashville, TN on Mother's Day Weekend and wrapped the year on a high note with a special
tribute performance at the Kennedy Center Honors. Her hit single, "Goodness of God" is streaming over 1.3 million
views per week; and if all that isn't enough, Winans received GMA Dove Awards top honors: Artist of the Year and Song of the
Year for the singer's first live album, Believe For It, that doesn't appear to be losing any steam.
Now CeCe Winans is ready to hit the road, once again, for the second
leg of the "Believe For It" Tour that will cover another 18 cities. The tickets go on pre-sale January 20th and
on sale to the general public, Monday, January 23rd. Last fall, the BFI Tour saw lines form and wrap around venues hours
before the doors opened. The much anticipated concert dates sold out very quickly on the heels of a successful live recording
that continues to have a presence on the Billboard Gospel Charts. Transparent Productions, one of the largest producers
of Christian concerts, tours and festivals across the U.S. provides the marketing and promotion wheels behind the Believe
For It Tour, partnering with Winans to ensure she connects with all of her fans. Compassion International is back onboard
