Pastor calls for Christians to boycott Starbucks..

Evangelical Pastor, Steven Andrews, president of the USA Christian Ministries in California is asking customers to boycott Starbucks due to the company’s support of a bill to legalize gay marriage in Washington state.

Last week, four Republicans joined 24 Democrats in ensuring a 28-21 victory in a vote that paves the wave for Washington to become the seventh state to recognize same-sex matrimony.

The legislation will legalize gay marriage with exemptions for religious organizations opposed to conducting same-sex weddings or allowing same-sex couples to use their facilities for nuptials.

“Starbucks can follow Satan if they want to. However, pastors are to help Christians. Are you on the Lord’s side? Will you help the USA be blessed by God?” said Andrews, in a written statement.

In addition to Andrews, The National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same sex marriage, has pledged to provide financial backing for conservative challengers to the four Republican senators who supported the bill.

Starbucks, which is based in Seattle, joined more than 100 other companies, including Microsoft, Nike and Google in backing the same-sex marriage bill.

According to Reuters, when asked about the controversy over their decision, Starbucks held firm in it’s longstanding support for equality of gays and lesbians stating, “Starbucks is proud to join other leading Northwest employers in support of Washington state legislation recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples.”

The bill is expected to pass in the state house of representatives this week.

Isaac Carree’s, hit single “In The Middle” still holds strong in Number One spot on Billboard Gospel Chart!

ISAAC CARREE

One could say that, gospel artist Isaac Carree wears many hats. He is a singer, songwriter, producer, actor, and most importantly, husband and father.

His song “In the Middle” off of his first solo album, currently holds the number one spot on the Billboard Chart for Best Gospel Song, beating out James Fortune & Fiya’s “Still Able”, and Earnest Pugh’s “I Need Your Glory”.

Also note that “In the Middle” has been sitting comfortably in that number one spot on the Billboard Gospel Song chart since the week of December 31, 2011. In the Middle has quickly grown to be a favorite among gospel music lovers.

Carree’s latest album, which is his first solo album, entitled “Uncommon Me”, released in August 2011 still places among the top ten albums on the current Billboard chart.

So who is Isaac Carree?

Well many people don’t know that Carree has actually been in the gospel music scene for quite a while. He has performed with the likes of Kirk Franklin and Michelle Williams, to name a few.

Carree grew up in North Carolina where he began singing solos in church at a young age. His mother, Pastor Nancy Wilson, currently serves as head pastor at New Beginnings Community Outreach Church in Greensboro, North Carolina.

By shining in the light of gospel music at an early age, it comes as no surprise that Carree would eventually began singing with John P.Kee’s V.I.P choir. Carree later left the V.I.P Choir to form a quartet, named Men of Standard (formed in 1996), alongside Michael Bacon, Bryan Pierce, and Lowell Pye.

During their time together as a quartet, the group produced four albums, Men of Standard (1996), Feels Like Rain (1999), Vol. III (2002) and It’s A New Day (2004). The group garnered two Stellar awards in 2000 from Feels Like Rain.

Bacon would eventually leave the group (in 2005) to pursue other goals, however, the trio continued on with the release of Surrounded in 2006, with the hit single “I Will”.

Carree currently resides in Atlanta, GA, with his wife, Dietra, of eight years. The couple has two children, a son, Isaac IV, and daughter, Alaina.

2011 was definitely a great year for Carree, and from the looks of things 2012 will be even better! We wish him the best of luck!
