Soul Tempo Gains Wisdom from Music Icon Lionel Richie

SoulTempolight1pressThe Gospel group Soul Tempo has been influenced by many music artists, such as Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, Boys II Men, Adele and Lionel Richie. Their music influences have helped to shape their journey as artists and how they approach writing and producing new songs.

During an interview with news writer, Gil Shalowitz of, Soul Tempo shared advice they received from Multi-platinum selling artist, Lionel Richie on why to include the concept of love in their music:

“We sat down with Lionel Richie in his trailer and he made a good point. He made a great point. He said, “If you write about love, it’ll never die.” So we put a little bit of that into our Christian music. God wants to save every soul. Even if someone doesn’t listen to Christian music, you still want to capture them. We were in Philadelphia, this girl was listening to one of our records and she started to cry. It hit her in her heart and she wasn’t a Christian.”

Soul Tempo also expressed the importance of them stepping out of the box with their music and ministry: “We pay attention to Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin and people like that. We try to see what they have done to capture an audience. We keep the Christian inspiration music commercial because you want to touch people’s hearts in every genre. Even the unsaved need a great story.”

Well, Soul Tempo will continue to step out the box with their music ministry in New York on Friday, July 19th.  On, July 19th, Soul Tempo will join other phenomenal artists in New York, for the FBCC Cultural Arts Theatre presents, Liz Black’s Variety Show/Open Mic event.

Soul Tempo will perform during the Liz Black Variety Show at FBCC Cultural Arts Theartre, 145 N. Franklin Street, Hempstead, NY 11550. Gospel music lovers are encouraged to join Soul Tempo during this event from 7pm-10pm.
