That Grape Juice Interviews Dorinda Clark Cole

Say hello to Dr. Dorinda Clark Cole, undoubtedly the hardest working woman in the gospel music industry.

Affectionately known as the ‘Rose of Gospel’ – a fitting title for the beauty who, under the guidance of mother Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, sprouted from gospel supergroup The Clark Sisters to now blossom in her own solo career as a frontrunner of the genre.  And, with a career spanning four decades, the songstress appears to show no signs of stopping soon.

As Grammy, Stellar, and a host of other awards decorate her shelves, the ‘I’m Still Here’ songstress tells us she still has much uncharted territory to conquer.  Sitting down exclusively with That Grape Juice, Cole chats about her dynamic plans for the near future as well her hit television and radio shows, ‘I Survived’ album, and more.

Love Fantasia? Love Jazmine Sullivan?  Meet the legend those singers and many like them cite as an inspiration.  As always, this is a must read:

That Grape Juice Interviews Gospel Hitmaker Israel Houghton

Over the past two decades Gospel hitmaker Israel Houghton has seen his name blasted atop Billboard’s Gospel Charts for hits like ‘Again I Say Rejoice’, ‘Friend of God’, and the most recent #1 hit ‘It’s Not Over (When God Is In It)’.

In such time, the ‘New Breed’ captain has not only racked up 4 Grammy awards and a host of other accolades, but has become one of the genre’s frontrunners – with 2012 seeing him join fellow Gospel gents Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, and Marvin Sapp for the hotly-selling ‘King’s Men’ national tour.

But, despite his successes, the ‘Jesus At the Center’ maestro maintains that his family remains the center of his devotion as he still juggles the demands of being the worship leader for mega-pastor Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church (Houston, TX) with touring and recording.

Click below to read our candid interview with Houghton as he discusses this topic and many more, exclusively with That Grape Juice:

Time sure flies when at the top. Four years have passed since Pop quad JLS blazed onto the UK charts and the period within has seen the group notch up five #1’s and 10 million record sales worldwide.

With their fourth album ‘Evolution’ continuing their success-trend, we caught up with the boys to chat to them about the project, its markedly more “Urban” sound, breaking the US, solo projects and more.

JLS’ new dual single ‘Hold Me Down’ and ‘Give Me Life’ are available on iTunes now!

That Grape Juice Interviews Joshua Rogers (BET’s ‘Sunday’s Best’ Season 5 Winner)

‘Well Done’ is the aptly-titled debut EP of gospel music’s latest phenom Joshua Rogers.

Affectionately christened “Young Buck” by gospel legend Kirk Franklin, the 18-year-old South Carolinian has taken the genre by storm since becoming the first male contestant to win BET’s beloved gospel singing competition ‘Sunday’s Best’.  And, if our chat with him is any indication, the storm has just begun brewing.

Chatting exclusively with That Grape Juice, the ‘We Expect You’ wailer dishes on what fans can expect from his Music World Gospel debut (December 4th), working with James “Big Jim” Wright (whose production credits include Beyonce, Mariah Carey), and shares thoughts on if he’d ever pursue a secular music career.

As always, this is a must read:

Ever keen to ask the questions really want answers to, Patrick B quizzed the star on ‘One Woman Army’, the drama surrounding her last project ‘Basic Instinct’, changing labels, fellow female stars such as Rihanna, Beyonce, and Janet Jackson, and a whole lot more!

Hit ‘PLAY’ above and, as usual, let us know what you think below!

Ciara’s ‘One Woman Army’ arrives in stores early next year, while current singles ‘Sorry’ and ‘Got Me Good’ are available to buy on iTunes now.
