Stages of the Walk
The wait is over; Evangel & The Ministers of Reconciliation has launched their new project on the M.A.N.D.A.T.E. Recording label May 2005 entitled, 'Stages Of The Walk'. This project is a unique blend of Rap, R & B and New Old School Funk music with powerful, God anointed lyrics. Due to the much anticipated interest in the Evangel & M.O.R. project, the record label released two singles, 'Nothin-U-Can Offer Me' and 'Hear A Word' for radio airplay. Emerging on the scene in 1990 as a Gospel Rap artist, Evangel was on the cutting edge of urban Christian music. Born in Riverside, California, Evangel grew up hearing great music. At 6 years old, she began taking music lessons. By 12 she was developing her writing skills and after graduating from high school Evangel was a member of three rap groups. God was just preparing Evangel for her ultimate assignment. When Evangel rededicated her life to Jesus Christ this rappin young lady began to minister through the lyrics of her songs. Today she has developed and matured into a seasoned recording artist that sings, raps, writes and produces the majority of her material. Evangels' journey in the Christian music industry landed her a deal with a small local record label in 1995. While on that label she released her debut project entitled, 'Spiritually Minded' in 1997. Although Spiritually Minded was the label's top selling project for three years after it's release, Evangel was still developing her unique sound. Feeling the burden of limitation with performance tracks, Evangel decided to form her very own band naming them 'The Ministers Of Reconciliation' a.k.a. (M.O.R.). Together, Evangel & M.O.R. continued to promote the Spiritually Minded project while forming the new sound that she envisioned. From colleges, fairs, jails and churches to Spirit West Coast, Youth Specialties, San Diego Street Scene, The House of Blues and Miles Ahead Crusade, Evangel & M.O.R. have shared the stage with many top Christian Recording Artists. Today, Evangel & M.O.R. continue to forge their way in the Christian Music industry as a sought after group. In 2000, her current label restructured and Evangel & M.O.R. signed a new recording deal with M.A.N.D.A.T.E. Records Inc. In an effort to focus solely on recording in 2001, Evangel & M.O.R. stopped touring and went into the studio to record 'Stages of The Walk'. Now after four years of hard work and many transitions, they are ready to launch the new era of their music ministry. Now, it is their time and their season.
