PRESS RELEASE: @KAnthony7 Is “Billboard” Bound!


Canadian based recording artiste, K-Anthony has released a new single geared for a global breakthrough. The song has an international, pop sound and critics believe this is definitely a single to watch. “Billboard” is the title of the track produced by Dwain “Wiya” Campbell of Barbwiya Music. It sends a comprehensive message that you may not achieve the success and recognition that most would do anything to acquire, however there are other achievements that more meaningful and of even greater value.

The urban-gospel singer said, “Initially in my career my main aim was to be the epitome of Gospel music. Getting on the world renowned Billboard charts. I had a redefining moment in my life, while writing this song. My focus shifted from self to total surrender to God’s will. My musical passion became bigger than just getting on to charts. My new goal was to be a billboard for what I believed in. I yearn to remind Christians that being a billboard is their duty. We are the living advertisement for salvation and grace. The spirit of Jesus within us, should shine for the world to see.”

When you listen to this record you can clearly hear the influence of R &B music, particularly of Boyz to Men and Brian McKnight. They played integral roles in the defining moments for K-Anthony, encouraging him to select the musical path he travels today. His new album also titled, “Billboard” is due to hit music stores this May.

K-Anthony, given name Kevin Fowler is a former instructor of music at Northern Caribbean University. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and an Associates degree in Mass Communication. His single “Heading To The Top” was a chart-topping single on the Caribbean’s Cross Country Countdown. For more information visit www.kanthonylive.com

PRESS RELEASE: @ProdiVOP876 To Host Album Launch This Month


Prodilaunch

Reggae recording artiste Prodi (formally known as Prodigal Son) will be hosting his first reggae album launch at Emmanuel Apostolic Church on April 24 at 8 p.m. The Circle Small artiste has stirred up much controversy with this move from gospel to reggae, but reminds his fans that God is still the head of his life. Prodi shared: “I am a Christian, and my choice to do positive music is, a personal one that I made with God”. Last June, Prodi released his Reggae EP Voice of The People, which was a success. This EP led to several international features, including one in the famed Rolling Stones magazine.

The album, Perfectly Imperfect From Kingston City, will feature 13 singles, inclusive of powerful hits such as Hustlers Anthem, Kingston City, Never Leave and Circle Small. Prodi and his ‘Yawd Movement’ kicked off 2015 with his much-talked-about performance at Rebel Salute and continued the year with much success. “I am very excited about this year’s achievements and I strongly believe that this year is the year I make bigger steps in reggae music,” he said.

Prodi has been planning his Devotion Tours in schools in Kingston and St Andrew and will be visiting a few community youth clubs to share his message through positive music. He added: “I get judged a lot and oftentimes by those who do not take the time to listen to the content of my music and the powerful messages that we share with people. “This album shows that even though we are perfectly made in the sight of God, we all make mistakes and, as such, we are perfectly imperfect”.

Prodi recently released the video for Never Leave and is on his promotional runs for the album.
