Last Week’s Happenings

  • Crossroads Label Group honored Lauren Talley for her #1 debut on Billboard’s Top Christian Inspirational Album Chart, April 1, 2017, for her album The Gospel. This is the first album in the history of Crossroads to appear at the top of this particular chart.
  • Surrendered, a trio based in Gadsden, Alabama, announced the addition of vocalist Tiffany Hamilton. She replaces Sadie Renae, who departs after a two-year tenure.

Prayer Requests
