G Scene: What's Up In July

G Scene: What's Up In July


























Pastor G Ninth Studio Album

Pastor G Ninth Studio Album Renowned gospel musician Pastor G aka The G Factor is set to release his ninth album on July 5 at the storied 7 Arts Theatre.

The ‘big man’ will not only be dropping his ninth offering but will also be doing a live DVD recording on the same day which will be his second after his first live DVD recording back in 2007 at the very same venue.

His fruitful career which spans over 10 years has seen Pastor G travelling the world as he spreads the gospel of Christ Jesus through song. Over this period he has worked with a host of artists and groups among them are Zimpraise, AFROW, Priestly and Covenant Praise Choir.

Now two years after the launch of his eighth offering ‘Indestructible’ which was a huge success, the inspirational singer is ready to drop album nine titled ‘Unstoppable, The Rhythm, Worship & Praise Experience’.

Zendaya Coleman pulls out of Aaliyah Biopic

Aaliyah Biopic halts as Zendaya Coleman drops out

Okay, first of all whose bad idea was it to place Zendaya Coleman in that role in the first place?

Zendaya is cute but she is nowhere near Aaliyah, and it's not about the race issue, we believe that Hollywood has enough highly skilled make-up artists to darken her complexion, but physically, no, no!

So after news broke that Zendaya Coleman would be playing the late singer Aaliyah in the upcoming Lifestime biopic about her life, the internet was in an uproar and so it seems that had something to do with the  17 year old Disney star reportedly dropping out of the project.

A source told E! News that there were production issues, including problems obtaining the rights to Aaliyah’s music. “Aaliyah has always been an inspiration to Zendaya,” the source said. “She was honored to portray her and pay tribute to her. If she is going to do it, she wants to do it right.”

Power Couple "On The Run"

THE FIRST SHOW OF JAY Z AND BEYONCE'S "ON THE RUN" TOUR

The Carters have officially kicked off their summer "On The Run" North American tour on Wednesday night in Miami. While the tour will likely be the second most successful tour ever on gross revenue per show. Many people were anticipating the first show due to Jay Z and Beyoncé going through a tough month between the elevator incident and the love affair rumours. The press even said that the model couple was destined for divorce.

The couple opened the night with their "03 Bonnie and Clyde" duo and went through a lot of hits and albums cuts from their discographies to please the sold out crowd. Kelly Rowland and Jamie Foxx were in the attendance. One of the highlights of the night was during the "Young Forever" performance: a video of Beyoncé and Jay Z's wedding was broadcast on the main screen for the first time ever.

The tour runs through July and ends on August 5th.
