Nicki Minaj's Mom Is A Music Maker, Too! She's A Gospel Singer!

We guess music is a family affair!

Nicki Minaj's mother Carol Maraj is following in her daughter's footsteps, and is embarking on her own music career!

The mother of the music superstar has released a brand new gospel inspired track called God's Been Good, however the song features techniques which isn't in any gospel music that we've ever heard before.

We guess this momma is an innovator just like her daughter!

Carol recently tweeted:

Nicki, strangely enough, hasn't made any mention of her mother's new song on her Twitter.

Is she supportive of her mother's new venture? Are you?

Take a listen to a sample of her track, and decide for yourself (above)!

Whitney Houston Takes Us To Church In Sparkle!

Earlier this week, we gave you the first of two songs the late Whitney Houston recorded for her upcoming movie, Sparkle.

Now, we have the second one — gospel hymn His Eye Is On The Sparrow — and you might just want to have some tissues handy before pressing play…

Take a listen to one of Whitney's last songs recorded (above).

Wow. Utterly chill-inducing!!!

We still can't believe we lost such an incredible voice just months ago. This track is proof that Whitney's voice really WAS still up to par, contrary to what some might have been led to believe.

Sparkle hits theaters August 17 and we can only imagine that the whole audience will be brought to tears once this song plays!

Whitney will forever live on through her music and legendary voice.

Hmm…doesn't this sound familiar?

Now where have we heard this one before?!

Oh yeah!

Stacy Francis has had QUITE a bit of success on Broadway and in the entertainment industry over the past 12 years, despite the story she tells on The X Factor as an unemployed single mom, but apparently, that's not the first time she's told it!

Check out her audition for the BET TV gospel competition Sunday's Best from 2010 (above)!

Is this why you're so adamant about being a pop singer, gurl?

Gospel For Teens Keeps Harlem Youth Off The Streets

Filed under: Inspiration

Vy Higginsen, writer and producer, started a singing school called Gospel For Teens in Harlem.

Originally, Gospel For Teens was created to save gospel music, and to introduce it to a generation who was raised on hip-hop. Now, it's a haven for teens trying to stay off the streets and do something positive.

Talking about what Gospel For Teens aims to do, Vy Higginsen said:

"We mean to lift up the youth through history and gospel music!"

So inspiring!

Dolly Parton Getting Her Musical On!

Filed under: Music MinuteDolly Parton

dolly parton gets her musical on

We're so excited to hear about all these projects that Dolly's working on!

Back in November, we learned that Dolly Parton is planning a brand new album, as well as a worldwide tour, and NOW it looks like she's also planning a "gospel-tinged children's musical!"

The musical will be a semi-autobiographical play about Dolly's "upbringing in Tennessee."

But there's more! Dolly MAY also do a revival of Hello, Dolly!, country-style.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"In 1964, when I went to New York for the first time with my high school class, I only got to the movies - it was to see It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and it was a real big deal for me. But I also remember the show Hello, Dolly! was just coming out at the time, and there were signs for it all over the place, and I thought they were welcoming me to the city."

"Later I wanted to do a country-fied version of that show - the same songs, but with a bluegrass flavour. It never happened."

You should DEFINITELY do both of these shows, bb. We'd be very curious to see your country-fied interpretation of Hello, Dolly!

Will U check out these Dolly Parton musicals if/when they come out?
