Worship Songs and Hymns for The Modern Christian Church

Author Shares Inspiration for Writing 'Worship Songs and Hymns'

SAN ANTONIO, TX, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 / — "Faith rests on God’s power and not on men's wisdom", summarizes the belief of an author who was born in the state of Texas. Arthur Christopher Gorham expresses of his faith to God and of his passion for writing in a hymnal entitled, 'Worship Songs and Hymns for The Modern Christian Church'. A 224-page worship song hymnal which consists of 100 original modern songs, written in traditional church form.

At a very young age, Gorham was encouraged by his parents to learn about music. His knowledge in singing was honed as he was making his way up to various music genres. His father became his personal trainer who encouraged him to pursue music and its rewards. Gorham shares that his calling for music was always Jesus Christ's calling in his life. Biblical and Doctrinal studies played a major role in his music writing skills and broadened his vision for writing songs about God's love, mercy and hope for all people, in Christ Jesus.

His book entitled, 'Worship Songs and Hymns for The Modern Christian Church', is a hymnal written for people who seek a message of devotion back to God. It describes God’s authority, power, glory, mercy, and love to the world. The eternal life that Jesus Christ had promised, is conveyed on the pages of the book. He believes the songs which are Spiritually inspired, emphasize how God can renew people’s relationship and hope in Christ.

The important message that Arthur Christopher Gorham would like to convey to the readers, is that there is absolute freedom of joy in God’s love, and in God’s presence, and in God's worship. And that the power of singing and worship of God’s mighty promises in Christ Jesus, can make a major spiritual difference in the believer's life and listening audience.

100 melodies of the songs written in his book can be found in his online YouTube channel, 'Worship Songs and Hymns by Arthur Christopher Gorham'.

About the Author:
Born and raised in the state of Texas, he was encouraged to learn about music, learn to sing at a young age and to broaden his creative mind in vatious music genres. He received music training by his father at a young age. Growing up, he continued to educate himself in music and music theory on his own. He knew at an early age that his music abilities were part of his calling, for God's service. He devoted his talent to his Christian calling.

Garsington Opera World Premiere The Skating Rink

Garsington Opera auditorium with skater

Garsington Opera World Premiere The Skating Rink Featuring Live Figure Skating Opening 5 July


On 5 July 2018 Garsington Opera stages its first festival world premiere. Based on award-winning novel The Skating Rink by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño, the opera tells a thrilling tale of jealousy, political corruption and passion.

Set in a seaside town on the Costa Brava, the production will feature live figure-skating and an exceptional cast. The story of The Skating Rink is told by three narrators, revolving around Nuria, a beautiful young figure-skating champion. When she is dropped from the Olympic team, Enric, a besotted civil servant, pilfers public funds and builds her a secret practice rink in a deserted mansion. Nuria has affairs and the plot soon spins into blackmail, bad faith and treachery; the skating rink becomes a crime scene.

Leading British composer David Sawer, whose previous operatic work includes From Morning to Midnight (ENO 2001), has composed a score which is full of character, drama and beauty, drawing on Spanish and Latin American styles, set to a libretto by award-winning playwright Rory Mullarkey. David Sawer said: “Immediately what grabbed me about the book was its structure. The fact that it is a story told from multiple viewpoints; that there isn’t just one linear narrative, that there are interlocking stories and that the events are told from different perspectives…that was very interesting for me, musically. There are lots of different themes in the narrative. What I think I’ve written is almost like a filmstrip, which will come to life when it is staged.”

Stewart Laing directs and designs, supported by regular collaborators, including Korean-born Costume Designer Hyemi Shin, who was the overall winner of the 2011 Linbury Prize and recently designed The Return of Ulysses (Roundhouse/Royal Opera). Garry Walker conducts and the cast includes: Neal Davies (Enric), Susan Bickley (Carmen), Alan Oke (Rookie), Sam Furness (Gaspar), Lauren Zolezzi (Nuria), Ben Edquist (Remo), Claire Wild (Caridad) and Louise Winter (Pilar).

BBC Radio 3 will record a live performance for broadcast in the autumn.
Performances: 5, 8, 10, 14, 16 July 2018 (Start time 6.50pm)
Tickets: 01865 361636 or

The 2018 Season that opens on 31 May for a seven week season, features four new productions Verdi’s Falstaff, Richard Strauss’s Capriccio, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and the world premiere of The Skating Rink by composer David Sawer and librettist Rory Mullarkey.

The world premiere and red carpet event for “Hey Mr. Postman” is set for June 9 at AMC Classic Solon 16 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Walter Franks is the star of the feature film, “Hey Mr. Postman,” which is based on true events experienced by Writer Brian Berry.

The amazing cast from Walter Franks to Omar Gooding really took my script to another level, which will take the audience on a wild ride of unforgettable characters, belly laughs, twists and turns.”

— Brian Berry the writer and executive producer for Hey Mr. Postman.

CLEVELAND, OH, USA, April 19, 2018 / — Cleveland-based film production company BerryGood Films, in association with Skip Thomas Productions and One Shot Films sets the world premiere and red carpet event for its feature-length comedic film, "Hey Mr. Postman" on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at AMC Classic Solon 16 formerly Digiplex Solon Cinema 16, 6185 Enterprise Pkwy, Solon, Ohio 44139. The premiere is hosted by Andrew Lloyd, a Cleveland, Ohio resident and owner of the Ohio Entertainment Awards. Red carpet starts at 1:30 p.m. and show time begins promptly at 3 p.m. This is a media friendly event.

"We shot "Hey Mr. Postman" entirely on location in my hometown, Cleveland, Ohio," said "Hey Mr. Postman" Writer and Executive Producer Brian Berry. "The outpouring of support has been overwhelming." Berry has sold out three theaters at the AMC Classic Solon 16. "Fans have already purchased tickets months in advance to attend the highly anticipated official world premiere and red carpet event."

"Hey, Mr. Postman" is based on true events experienced by Berry. "My father retired from the post office after 33 years of service," said Berry. "In 2011, I applied and was hired for a mailman position at the Newburgh Heights Post Office in Cleveland, Ohio. After a year of experiencing unique and wild situations, I was fired."

The film has the feel of the "Friday" movie franchise. The protagonist is Brian Lincoln, a slacker, who refuses to grow up and take real responsibility. When Brian loses his job, he gets a hook up at the post office where he learns just how challenging being the local mailman can be. In addition to all the crazy situations he ends up in, he unwittingly finds himself in the middle of a missing person investigation for which he may be the key to solving it all.

"The amazing cast from Walter Franks to Omar Gooding really took my script to another level, which will take the audience on a wild ride of unforgettable characters, belly laughs, twists and turns," said Berry, a first-time writer. "It's also exciting to have Cleveland native Actress Paula Jai Parker starring in my film." BerryGood Films cast more than thirty local, Northeast Ohio talented actors.

"Our film crew was based out of Ohio. We worked with many other local filmmakers to complete the project," he said. "Some of the one-of-a-kind hip-hop wardrobe was provided by Ohio-based fashion designer Demetrius Brazile of Do You Apparel."

The feature film stars Walter Franks (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Scream II, Boycott); Liana Mendoza (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Ray Donovan, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Better Call Saul, American Horror Story, A Haunted House, Zane Sex Chronicles); Paula Jai Parker (Friday, Hustle & Flow, Hollywood Divas, Ray Donovan, Family Time); Omar Gooding (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious BIG, Baby Boy, Smart Guy, Family Time); Rodney Perry (Madea’s Big Family, The Mo’Nique Show, Family Time); and Anthony ‘AJ’ Johnson (Friday and Menace II Society).

Other tracks includes:"I DiIP," by Edawg features Sir Mix_A_Lot and Money B from Digital Underground;"For The Night," by Alphy Nics Featuring Omar Gooding aka "Big O," rap artist Doe Boy, and Rych Twyns' "Ain't Real," from Oakland, California. Cleveland's popular DJ Meel is the music supervisor for the film. He is known as the personal DJ for NBA Star LeBron James.

Cleveland's own award-winning Director Mike Berry, who is not related to Brian Berry, is best known for productions such as "Banger, If You Knew Better," and "3rd Floor West." Producers include Skip Thomas Productions, Tina Hobbs who is also the casting director, Curtis Elerson best known for "Paper in My Pockets," "My Life Over The Top" and "Seed of Hip Hop," and Jillian Holt of Langston Tributes.

The journey from concept to script and production wasn't quick or easy. "I met Brian four years ago," said Elerson who manages Gooding. "I read the script and shot a sizzle reel to help raise the money to shoot the full feature."

When Berry, the writer, funded the film, he called Elerson. "I made a few calls to some of my great acting friends and we brought Hollywood to Cleveland," said Elerson, the CEO of One Shot Films.

“Think the image; see the image; write the image; then make a movie,” says Writer Berry who is also the CEO of BerryGood Films.

“Filmmaking is in my blood,” says Director Berry. “It was my pleasure to work on a film that will appeal to just about every audience while at the same time adding to Cleveland’s thriving art and entertainment culture. We’re building a Hollywood Midwest environment and I’m looking forward to being a big part of that movement.”

Soho Music Festival Announced for June 2018

Emoción, Latin act confirmed for Soho Music Festival

L’Escargot, Soho Music Festival Venue, Exterior

The Soho Music Festival is a 12-hour music safari of 10 of the most vibrant live acts, all performing in the unique setting of the iconic L'Escargot restaurant.

A one-day celebration of independent music and musicians at one of Soho’s most famous addresses. A festival designed to bring music back to basements, small rooms and rooftops in the bohemian district”

— Ray Jones, CEO, Talentbanq

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 18, 2018 / — Soho – an area synonymous with great music venues and historic gigs. The area where the likes of Hendrix, The Who and Zeppelin cut their teeth, is where, to this day, incredible concerts happen nightly. But there are fears – gentrification is the word on many lips. As the bulldozers move onto Denmark Street, the last live music venue is closing on London’s Tin Pan Alley.

According to the team at TALENTBANQ it’s time to reverse the trend. Aligned with the Mayor’s #SoundsLikeLondon, event taking place throughout June, and as part of the Music Venue Trust's Fightback London campaign to support independent venues, TALENTBANQ, in partnership with L’Escargot, announces The Soho Music Festival on June 16th. The organisers describe the event as, “A one-day celebration of independent music and musicians, to be held at one of Soho’s most famous addresses. A festival that is designed to grow over the next three years to bring back music to basements, small rooms and rooftops in the bohemian district flanked by Oxford Street and Shaftesbury Avenue.”

TALENTBANQ has programmed a 12 hour live ‘music safari’ to take place in The Salon Noir, Salon Vert and The Library at L’Escargot on Greek Street. Heralded as one of the capital’s finest French restaurants, its upstairs rooms whisper the stories of times gone-by and provide exquisitely intimate spaces to discover new music.

From 11am to 11pm, L’Escargot will be host to no less than 10 red hot, breaking acts, each chosen for their ability to deliver exceptional live performance. Uniquely, the day will be divided into three sessions, where the audience moves from room to room.

The artistic line up ranges from Classical Crossover Piano, through Latin, to UK Country, Swing, Rock and possibly the wildest Celtic harp ever to grace a stage. In keeping with the truly international lineup, one band, Emoción, a Latin act made up of 5 multi-national virtuoso musicians, will be travelling in from 3 different countries and 2 continents to perform at the festival.

Naturally there’s a chance to eat some very fine food and, thanks to sponsors Casanova and D1, the afternoon session is preceded by an ice-cold glass of Prosecco, and the evening session with a long D1 London Gin cocktail.

On arrival between 10 & 11am, guests will be greeted with coffee and croissant before enjoying a ‘Music Safari’ – 3 sessions of music – Morning, Afternoon and Evening – all consisting of 3 different artists playing simultaneously in each of L’Escargot’s elegant rooms.

There are breaks for lunch and dinner where patrons are free to explore Soho, or avail of a £25 credit per person to dine at L’Escargot.

At 10pm the festival moves into after-party mode with the tenth artist of the day taking the stage in the Salon Noir – and a surprise guest or 2 to join the jam.

Tickets include:
– Coffee and Croissant on arrival
– A music safari of 9 independent artists over 3 sessions
– £25 towards lunch or dinner at host venue – L’Escargot
– Afternoon Ice cold prosecco by Casanova
– Evening long London Gin Cocktail by D1
– After party with 10th artist & unannounced guest
– 6 month membership of L’Escargot’s Club Privee
– Founders VIP ticket to The Soho Music Festival 2019

Prithvi Sai delivers another Big Room Drop – MAHA

MAHA – Prithvi Sai Feat. Chasing Lights

MUMBAI, INDIA, April 18, 2018 / — India based and Asia’s hottest emerging EDM DJ/Producer Prithvi Sai drops another Big Room Bomb "MAHA" featuring Chasing Lights. This track is receiving great reviews from all over and sets on to cement Prithvi Sai's progress in the world's EDM scene. Working hard over the last few months to get more of his astounding music out to the public, he released ‘Sitar in Melbourne’ on Wolfrange Recordings to finish off 2017. 2018 arrived and he dropped the hotly anticipated ‘Queen of the Club’. Fast-forward to now, and he has unveiled this new single "MAHA"

Starting off with atypical energetic drums, the power of the production is immediately noticeable. Vocoded, robotic vocals take hold as the track builds, and the hype grows and grows. Culminating in a shout of MAHA, the drop takes hold and leaves the listener in a trance. Brutal bass combined with raucous synths and continuation of the grizzly drums is enough to get anyone up and dancing. Prithvi Sai is talented at creating excitement in his works, and this one is enough to transport you from your living room to the dance floor, making you want to jump out of your seat and dance. Infusion of elements from Big Room, Electro House and even Trap are evident, and it’s this ability to transcend genres so fluidly that makes a true producer so great. With tracks like this under his belt, there’s no doubt Prithvi Sai has a big future ahead
of him. Expect to hear his productions pummelled at all the clubs during festival season and keep an ear out for his future works – you won't be disappointed.
