2, 2021) - "It's a coffee table book, it's pretty big," said Teresa Hairston, founder and
publisher of the former Gospel Today Magazine that reached one million dollars in business, about her newly published book "Unstoppable:
The Incredible Journey of America's #1 Christian Lifestyle Magazine" (Books2LiveBy) "I want the readers
to be inspired by my journey, a black single woman with three kids and 2 ½ jobs."
that because of the pandemic people have put their dreams aside. She wants them to be encouraged to dream again and challenge
themselves to move.
"Sometimes you have to look at what your destiny is...that keep you moving," Teresa
pointed out. "I started out as a songwriter, a writer who could read sheet music...was hired as Director of Promotions
for Savoy, a major Gospel label."
Hairston started a Gospel newsletter with all the inside information she
was privy to.
"My newsletter turned into a magazine to encourage people established in Gospel," 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 digitally February.
"I was a part of Gospel. I just knew it was something I wanted to do," she said. "This was before Kirk
Franklin, Donnie and Yolanda. I was at the cutting edge of all that....God's timing." www.Book2LiveBY.com
