Oh boy. It just seems like more and more drama is falling upon the gospel music community each and every day. The latest falls on Stellar Award winning and highly-controversial contemporary gospel artist Tonex'. In an entry posted on his official blog, Tonex' mentions his disgusts towards the church, cyber saints, the industry and church folks and decided to bow out and retire from the music industry. We can agree with him - it is full of alot of mess. But...we are pretty sure Tonex' will bounce back. All that creative talent in one brotha - I'm very sure God won't allow him to place it all under a bushel to rest forever.
We are not sure if he's ceasing from preaching or giving up on Christianity, even though he clearly states his faith in Christianity is fading and is stressed due to "financial and emotional hardship".
You can read up on the blog entry by clicking here. And no, it's not bogus. It's all right here.
Now I'm wondering if Gospelflava is gonna publicize this.
