she said. "Gospel was the step-child of music. It didn't lead with news...of killing people like the other news outlets.
News doesn't have to be negative."
Teresa launched her magazine in 1989 with $300 and built it to a revenue
stream of one million. In 1994 she launched The Gospel Heritage Foundation to educate worshippers and musician in the legacy
of Gospel Music. After the digital age took its toll on print media she ended the publication. Gospel Today was the largest
distributed and longest running Urban Gospel lifestyle magazine in history. Her autobiography, "Unstoppable...,"
about her fantastic journey from Savoy Records, to SCORE newsletter to publishing Gospel Today Magazine, is also released
"I was a part of Gospel. I just knew it was something I wanted to do," she said.
