TownesBishop Hezekiah Walker, VaShawn Mitchell, Benita Bellamy, Eboni Funderburk and the leading industry executives and artists in candid discussions on the “New Normal” in gospel music.  The “New Normal” comes from a new generation of fresh voices from rising artists, executives and ministry leaders who have innovative ideas and practices being implemented in comparison to the old models (business as usual).  Explore and establish “new rules!”
