Okay, first of all, this isn't an attempt to get everyone to run over to the site and "vote" for him. The winner will be selected by a panel of judges from the industry. They might look at the comments people leave, but it's so obvious that some of the contestants are "stacking the deck," I'm sure the judges will see right through those efforts.

If you know anything about contemporary gospel music, then you know the name "Winans." Well, one of the ladies of the family (Vickie) is holding this contest. The winner gets $10,000, plus, Vickie will include her own performance of the winning song on her next CD.

So, check it out, and add comments if you like.

Charles is #8

Personally, I didn't care too much for the over-produced stuff, or for those who were trying to sound too much like gospel (that wasn't the contest, imo).

I missed this earlier. I just went in and listened and I like what he's written. It's a good song that I can hear with a large choir singing in the verses.....good luck to him in this contest and his career!!! Thumbs up on it from me!

Wow, Droogie - this is pretty cool! I didn't listen to all the clips but I really like your brother-in-law's. His voice sounds great, I loved that he played the guitar, and I liked the words and music. I do know who the Winan's are - big time in gospel. This is really great that your bro-in-law has made it to the finals - hope he wins this! (btw - couldn't resist - I did have to add a comment but I didn't add the same one repeatedly like some of what you referred to. )

Well, it looks like they're down to the final three.

Charles didn't advance, unfortunately, but to make it to the top 12 out of around 300 is still pretty cool.

Peace.
