Efrem: SECONDS AWAY

ON "STUDIO 5," A NEW SOUND

AND NEW MUSIC FROM GOSPEL

LEGEND CECE WINANS.

> IS THERE ANYBODY IN

YOUR FAMILY THAT DOESN'T

SING?

NONE THAT I OF.

KNOW OF.

EVERYONE SINGS A LITTLE

BIT.

WE LOOK FOR GOOD,

WONDERFUL, FAMILY

ENTERTAINMENT.

Efrem: AND THEN A

NATIONAL TOUR...

* WHEN YOU DON'T MOVE THE

MOUNTAIN *

Efrem: ...TO

CELEBRATE THE LOCAL

CHURCH.

DEATH DIDN'T TRAP

JESUS.

JESUS TRAPPED DEATH.

Efrem: IN "STUDIO 5,"

STARTING NOW.

*

Efrem: AND WELCOME TO

"STUDIO 5."

WE ARE JUST DAYS AWAY FROM

CELEBRATING THE

RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD

AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

EASTER SUNDAY.

SO WHAT A PERFECT TIME TO

BRING YOU A SHOW FROM THE

HOLY LAND.

AND WE'VE GOT A GREAT SHOW

FOR YOU, JAM-PACKED WITH

SOME GREAT STORIES.

LET'S GET STARTED, LIKE WE

ALWAYS DO, WITH A

COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP FIVE

BEST STORIES IN UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

HERE ARE THE FIRST TWO.

AT NUMBER FIVE...

I THOUGHT WE WERE IN A

CAR-POOL KARAOKE, MAN.

Efrem: GOLDEN STATE

WARRIOR SETH CURRIE HITS

THE "LATE, LATE SHOW."

FOR A ROUND OF KARAOKE.

*

* NO ONE KNOWS

Efrem: AND MORE THAN

FIVE MILLION CHECK OUT THE

VIDEO OF CURRIE AND JAMES

CORDEN BELTING OUT DISNEY

TUNES.

*

[APPLAUSE]

* WITH YOU

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT

TONY ROMO IS CHOOSING TO

WALK AWAY FROM THE GAME OF

FOOTBALL AT AGE 37.

Efrem: BEYOND THE

BUZZ OF THE DALLAS

QUARTERBACK'S RETIREMENT

IS A BEAUTIFUL STORY OF

BROTHERHOOD.

THERE IS RESPECT THAT

COMES WITH THAT.

Efrem: JASON TWEETED

THIS: "THERE IS NO ONE I

WOULD RATHER HAVE HAD NEXT

TO ME ON THIS JOURNEY,

OTHER THAN TONY ROMO."

AND ROMO RESPONDED, "YOU

MADE FOOTBALL A LOT EASIER

FOR ME, BUT YOU ALSO MADE

MY LIFE BETTER BY BEING IN

IT."

WE'RE ALL GIVEN GRACE

BY THE LORD, SO NO ONE IS

PERFECT, BUT JASON IS

ABOUT AS CLOSE AS I SEE.

HE IS AWESOME.

Efrem: THOSE ARE JUST

THE FIRST TWO IN THE

COUNTDOWN.

BEING HERE IN THE HOLY

LAND REMINDS ME OF GOD'S

GRACE.

I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO

SIT DOWN WITH CECE WINANS

TO TALK ABOUT HER MUSIC

AND HER CAREER.

* HEY, DEVIL, GET BEHIND

ME *

Efrem: THIS

OLD-SCHOOL VIBE IS JUST

ONE OF THE NEW SOUNDS YOU

CAN SAMPLE ON THE FIRST

CECE WINANS' SOLO

RECORDING IN ABOUT NINE

YEARS.

IT IS CALLED, "LET THEM

FALL IN LOVE."

* LORD, HELP ME, JESUS

* SO HELP ME, JESUS

* I KNOW WHAT I AM

Efrem: YOUR SON,

ALVIN THE THIRD --

YES.

Efrem: -- DID A LOT

OF THE PRODUCING ON

THIS --

AND WRITING.

Efrem: -- AND WRITING

ON THIS.

DID YOU CATCH HIS VISION

IMMEDIATELY?

NO.

OF COURSE NOT.

PROBABLY ABOUT SIX YEARS

AGO HE CAME AND SAID, MOM,

I'VE GOT A GREAT IDEA FOR

HOW YOU SHOULD COME BACK

OUT.

I DIDN'T REALIZE SO MUCH

TIME HAD GONE BY.

IT WAS NINE YEARS FROM THE

SIM OF THE RELEASE, BUT

WHEN HE CAME TO ME, IT

PROBABLY HAD BEEN ABOUT

FOUR YEARS.

HE SHARED WITH ME THE

IDEA, MOM, IT IS GOING TO

BE REALLY COOL.

MY GENERATION IS GOING TO

LOVE IT.

SO YOU ALREADY KNOW RIGHT

THEN, YOU'RE GENERATION?

WAIT A MINUTE.

BUT HE ASSURED ME THAT THE

LYRICS WOULD BE BOLD.

IT WOULD BE WHO I AM, AND

YET IT WOULD BE FRESH,

RELEVANT.

KIND OF A THROW-BACK FEEL

IN THERE.

I WAS, LIKE, I DON'T THINK

SO.

BUT WHEN I TIMELY GOT

IT -TIMELY GOTFINALLY GOTIT -- AND IT TOOK ME A

WHILE -- I GOT EXCITED.

THIS IS GOING TO BE

REALLY, REALLY GOOD.

IT IS GOING TO BE FUN.

IT HAD ALL LIVE MUSIC,

40-PIECE ORCHESTRA.

AND IT WAS AWESOME.

I HAVE TO SAY, I KNEW HE

WAS GIFTED AND TALENTED

GOING IN, BUT I FOUND OUT

A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL I

DIDN'T KNOW THAT GOD HAD

REALLY BLESSED HIM WITH,

DOWNLOADED IN HIM.

AS A MOM, I WOULD WORK

DURING THE DAY, OR LATE AT

NIGHT, IN THE STUDIO, AND

WHEN I WOULD GET HOME, I

WOULD JUST WEEP AND SAY,

GOD, YOU'RE SO FAITHFUL.

AND I SAW HIS FAITHFULNESS

THROUGH THE NEXT

GENERATION, THROUGH

WORKING WITH MY SON.

Efrem: AND YOUR SON

HELPING YOU AND YOUR

HUSBAND AT YOUR CHURCH AS

WELL?

YES.

MY SON AND DAUGHTER.

THEY'RE BOTH VERY

INVOLVED.

THEY'RE PREACHING AND

TEACHING.

IT IS A FAMILY MINISTRY.

WE'RE ALL DOING THIS.

WE WERE ALL VERY SURPRISED

BY THE CALL, BUT WE'VE ALL

EMBRACED THE CALL.

Efrem: CECE AND HER

HUSBAND STARTED NASHVILLE

LIFE CHURCH FIVE YEARS

AGO.

IT BEGAN AFTER HER

MUSIC-PRODUCING SON

INVITED ABOUT 30 FRIENDS

OVER FOR A BIBLE STUDY.

AND ALL OF THE PROPHECY

STARTED COMING TO OUR

MINDS.

WE WERE, LIKE, THIS IS IT.

AND WE STARTED "NASHVILLE

LIFE."

IT IS A CHURCH FULL OF

MILLENNIALS ON FIRE FOR

GOD.

WE'RE MAKING SURE THE MAIN

THING REMAINS THE MAIN

THING, AND THAT'S JUST

LOVING GOD AND LOVING

PEOPLE.

Efrem: MANY PEOPLE

WATCHING ARE GOING TO WANT

TO KNOW WHAT IS YOUR

SECRET FOR REACHING THAT

GENERATION?

BECAUSE THERE ARE LEADERS

IN CHURCHES LOOKING OUT TO

THE AUDIENCE AND NOT

SEEING THEM.

WELL, THE NUMBER ONE

THING IS WE WERE BIRTHED

OUT THAT WAY.

A VERY DIVERSE GROUP OF

PEOPLE, WHICH IS AWESOME.

BUT I THINK, FROM WHAT

WE'VE LEARNED, MY HUSBAND

AND I, SINCE WE'VE BEEN

PASTORING THE MILLENNIALS,

IS THAT THEY JUST WANT THE

REAL DEAL.

THEY DON'T WANT ALL OF THE

STUFF THAT WE THINK HAS TO

BE CHURCH, THE TRADITIONAL

STUFF.

AND, TRUST ME, I LOVE A

LOT OF THE GREAT

TRADITIONS.

BUT THEY WANT IT SIMPLE.

THEY JUST WANT A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

Efrem: I WANT TO TALK

ABOUT YOUR FAMILY A LITTLE

BIT.

WE LOVE ALL OF YOU.

BUT A SURPRISE TO ME, I'M

SITTING AT HOME, WATCHING

"GREEN LEAF," AND I SEE

THE WINANS' LAST NAME ON

ONE OF THE LEADING

CHARACTERS.

AND THE I THINK SURELY NOT,

BUT I LOOK AND IT WAS.

IT IS MY NIECE.

SOME PEOPLE WONDERED IF IT

WAS MY DAUGHTER OR ME --

AND IT'S MY NIECE.

MY NEEDS NIECE, JOY, IS ON

"GREEN LEAF."

CECE, HOW MANY TIMES DO

I HAVE TO TELL YOU I DON'T

NEED YOU LOOKING OUT FOR

ME.

WHEN SHE TOLD MY MOTHER

SHE WANTED TO BE AN

ACTRESS, WE WERE, LIKE,

OH, NO.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, MY MOTHER

IS STILL PRAYING.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT WE LOVE JOY.

AND I THINK SHE IS

AMAZING.

AND SHE IS UP FOR A

STELLER.

SHE RECORDED A SONG CALLED

"MASTER'S CALL."

AND IT'S A BEAUTIFUL SONG.

AND SO I APPLAUD HER.

SHE HAS HER FIRST

NOMINATION AS -- YOU KNOW,

JOY NEVER SANG BEFORE.

PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THIS.

SHE NEVER SANG BEFORE SHE

DID THE SHOW.

SHE CALLED ME AND IT WAS,

LIKE, AUNTIE CECE, I HAVE

TO COME TO NASHVILLE.

AND I SAID FOR WHAT?

AND SHE SAID, I'VE GOT TO

GO TO THE STUDIO.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, COULD

YOU PLEASE COME HELP ME?

AND I SAID, JOY, YOU'VE

GOT IT IN YOU.

DON'T TRY TO BE ANYBODY

ELSE.

YOU'RE UNIQUE.

USE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN

YOU.

Efrem: ARE THERE ANY

WINANS WHO DON'T SING?

NONE THAT I KNOW OF.

EVERYBODY SINGS A LITTLE

BIT, AT LEAST.

Efrem: I KNOW YOU'VE

GOT A NEW ALBUM OUT.

WE'RE ENJOYING AND IT

LOVING IT.

A NEW RECORD.

Efrem: ARE YOU AND

YOUR BROTHER GETTING BACK

TOGETHER TO DO ANYTHING

ELSE?

WELL, YOU KNOW,

SOMETHING PLANNED.

IT TOOK ME NINE YEARS TO

GET BACK IN THE STUDIO TO

DO THIS.

YOU KNOW, MY PRAYER IS

ALWAYS, LORD, LET YOUR

PERFECT WILL BE DONE.

IF IT IS SINGING, GREAT.

IF IT IS SINGING WITH MY

BROTHER, GREAT.

IF IT IS NOT, GREAT.

AND SAYING THAT, GOD GAVE

US THIS CHURCH.

AND IT IS FULL-TIME.

AND I LOVE IT.

I LOVE IT.

Efrem: CECE'S NEW

PROJECT IS CALLED "LET

THEM FALL IN LOVE."

IT IS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW

EVERYWHERE.

> STILL AHEAD, "STUDIO

5" HITS THE RED CARPET.

WHAT WOULD THEY BE

SAYING ABOUT TONIGHT'S

EVENT?

> I THINK HE WOULD BE

VERY IMPRESSED.

HE WOULD BE SAYING, IT'S

SO FANCY.

Efrem: IT'S YOUR

FIRST LOOK AT THE 25th

ANNUAL MOVIE GUIDE AWARDS.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO THIS SPECIAL

EDITION OF "STUDIO 5"

COMING TO YOU FROM

JERUSALEM.

LET'S CONTINUE OUR

COUNTDOWN OF THE TOP FIVE

STORIES IN UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

HERE ARE THE NEXT TWO.

AT NUMBER THREE...THE

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

CHANNEL PREMIERES A

SPECIAL EPISODE OF

EXPLORER, JUST IN TIME FOR

THE CELEBRATION OF THE

RESURRECTION.

IT IS THE CHURCH OF THE

HOLY SEPULCHRE.

IT IS THOUGHT TO BE BUILT

ON THE SITE WHERE JESUS

WAS CRUCIFIED AND

INTOMBED.

CENTURIES OF NEGLECT HAVE

LEFT IT CRUMBLING.

AND NOW THE CHURCH IS

UNDERTAKING A MAJOR

RESTORATION PROJECT.

BUT THE CLOSELY GUARD THE

SECRET, KNOWN ONLY TO THE

MOST SENIOR CLERGY MEN IS

THAT AS PART OF THE

RESTORATION, THE WALK

WHERE JESUS WALKED WILL BE

VISIBLE FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN CENTURIES.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

TWO...

YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN,

YOU GET BACK UP.

YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN

AGAIN, YOU GET BACK UP.

Efrem: THE NBA'S

JEREMY LYNN REVEALS PRAYER

IS THE WEAPON THAT HELPS

HIM HEAD IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION ON AND OFF THE

COURT.

AND IN AN E-MAIL TO HIS

PRAYER GROUP, THE BROOKLYN

NETS' STAR IDENTIFIED

PASTOR TIM KELLER AS HIS

FAVORITE AUTHOR.

AND HIS BOOK, "PRAYERPRAYER," AS

THE BOOK THAT HELPED HIM

IMPROVE HIS PRAYER LIFE

AND INTIMACY WITH LIFE.

ABOVE EVERYTHING THAT I

HAVE, I TRUST GOD.

I TRUST HIS WORD, HIS

PROMISES, HIS LOVE.

TRUST HIM TO DO WHAT ONLY

HE CAN DO.

Efrem: AND THERE IS

JUST ONE MORE LEFT IN THE

COUNTDOWN.

YOU BE SURE TO STICK

AROUND FOR THAT.

> FROM THE HOLY LAND TO

THE RED CARPET, I

TRAVELLED TO LOS ANGELES

FOR THE 25th ANNUAL

MOVIE GUIDE AWARDS.

HERE IS YOUR FIRST LOOK AT

THE SHOW.

STARS LINED THE RED CARPET

IN HOLLYWOOD.

TO SHINE A LIGHT ON THE

IMPORTANCE OF FILMS AND

POSITIVE ENTERTAINMENT.

PEOPLE ARE LOSING A LOT

OF HOPE WITH THE POLITICAL

ENVIRONMENT.

I THINK RIGHT NOW SHOWING

FAITH IS THE BEST THING WE

CAN DO, SO PEOPLE CAN SEE

SOMETHING THAT CAN MAKE

THEM FEEL HOPEFUL AGAIN.

WE NEED ALL OF THE

POSITIVITY WE CAN GET.

SCROLL THROUGH YOUR

Facebook AND YOU GET

ENOUGH NEGATIVITY.

Efrem: MOVIE GUIDE

HAS HOSTED THIS GALA TO

REWARD PEOPLE IN

TELEVISION AND FILM WHO'S

WORK ENTERTAINS AND

INSPIRES.

THE GROUP WORKS TO BRIDGE

THE GAP BETWEEN THE

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY AND

THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY

AUDIENCE.

THIS IS A REALLY BIG

AUDIENCE.

Efrem: MOVIE GOOD

OFFERS TIPS AND GUIDELINES

FOR FILM-MAKERS AND

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO

PEOPLE LOOKING FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLY CONTENT.

IT'S FUNNY, I'VE BEEN

FOLLOWING MOVIE GUIDE FOR

YEARS.

MY OLDEST DAUGHTER IS 30.

MY YOUNGEST SON IS 11.

WE HAVE FIVE KIDS.

I HAVE A 6-YEAR-OLD

GRANDBABY.

WE GO TO MOVIE GUIDE

BECAUSE WE NEED TO FIND

OUT ABOUT WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

TO WATCH TONIGHT.

Efrem: CBN IS AMONG

THE DOCUMENTARY

IT WAS ORIGINALLY AN

Efrem: AND THIS YEAR

Pat: WELL, IT IS A

GREAT HONOR, AND I REALLY

Efrem: YOU CAN CATCH

THE MOVIE GUIDE AWARDS

COMING UP ON APRIL 16th.

> STILL AHEAD, BIG

VOICES UNITE TO PULL

PEOPLE BACK IN CHURCH.

WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED.

WE WILL NOT BE TIMID.

WE WILL NOT ACT OUT.

Efrem: WE'RE SITTING

DOWN WITH THE MAN BEHIND

THE MUSIC MOVEMENT CALLED

"OUTCRY."

Efrem: WELCOME BACK

TO "STUDIO 5."

IT IS NOW TIME FOR NUMBER

ONE IN THE COUNTDOWN.

TAKE A LOOK.

AT NUMBER ONE...

ONE...APRIL 15th, 1947,

JACKIE ROBINSON BECAME THE

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN TO

PLAY MAJOR LEAGUE

BASEBALL.

THERE WERE TIMES,

CERTAINLY, WHERE WE

THOUGHT IT WOULDN'T WORK.

Efrem: JUST IN TIME

FOR THE 70th

ANNIVERSARY, THE STORY

BEHIND ROBINSON'S RISE IS

COVERED IN THIS NEW BOOK,

"42 FAITH," WRITTEN BY ED

HENRY.

THE STORY HAS NEVER

BEEN TOLD.

HER LATE FATHER-IN-LAW WAS

A MINISTER IN BROOKLYN.

AND HE KNOCKED ON THE

DOOR, AND HE SAID HE

WASN'T SURE IF HE COULD GO

THROUGH WITH SIGNING

JACKIE ROBINSON AS THE

FIRST CONTRACT.

Efrem: AS WE REMEMBER

THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION

OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,

IT IS THE PERFECT TIME TO

FOCUS ON OUR LOCAL CHURCH.

I SAT DOWN WITH THE MAN

BEHIND THE MUSIC FOR A

LOOK AT THIS WEEK'S

"STUDIO 5" BRIGHT SPOT.

LAUREN DAGEL.

* WHEN YOU DON'T MOVE THE

MOUNTAIN *

Efrem: PASTOR STEVEN

FERDICK.

DEATH DIDN'T TRAP

JESUS.

JESUS TRAPPED DEATH.

Efrem: AND "JESUS

CULTURE."

*

* I LOVE YOUR PRESENCE

Efrem: ARE AMONG

THOSE HEADLINING THE

LATEST "OUTCRY" TOUR.

THIS IS A MOVEMENT AIMED

AT REMINDING THE WORLD

ABOUT THE POWER OF THE

LOCAL CHURCH.

THE CHURCH GETS A

PRETTY BAD RAP OF LATE,

SORT OF BEING MISSING, NOT

RELEVANT, AND NOT DOING

THE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE

DONE IN OUR WORLD.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT?

WHEN YOU LOOK AT

REVELATION 19, YOU SEE THE

BRIDE.

AND FOR US, THAT WAS A BIG

DEAL.

AND WE SAW, OKAY, THE

CHURCH IS THERE AT THE

VERY END.

SO WE KNOW THE END OF THE

STORY.

WE'RE ON THE WINNING TEAM,

YOU KNOW.

I THINK WE OPERATE IN --

WE'VE BEEN OPERATING IN

SUCH A KIND OF DEFENSIVE

POSTURE LATELY.

WE WANTED TO COMMUNICATE

ON THESE TOURS THAT THE

CHURCH IS NOT DYING.

IT CAN'T DIE.

IT IS GOING TO BE AROUND

FOREVER.

AND WE'RE PART OF THE

GREATEST MOVEMENT THAT THE

WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.

A LOT OF TIMES WE LOOK

BACK OVER CHURCH HISTORY

AND WE CAN ALL POINT AT

THE AREAS WHERE WE'RE

EMBARRASSED, BUT WE TOOK

SOME TIME TO LOOK BACK

OVER CHURCH HISTORY AND

SAY, WHAT ARE SOME HIGH

POINTS, SOME THINGS WE CAN

REALLY BE PROUD OF?

AND ULTIMATELY, THE WORLD

WOULD NOT LOOK LIKE IT

LOOKS IF NOT FOR THE

CHURCH.

Efrem: WOULD YOU SAY

THE CHURCH IS AS POWERFUL

TODAY AS IT WAS IN

HISTORY?

ABSOLUTELY.

MORE SO.

SOME OF THE THINGS AT THE

TIPS OF OUR FINGERS,

VIDEO, ONLINE

COMMUNICATION -- WE TAKE

IT FOR GRANTED.

FOR MY BEING A MILLENNIAL,

I SHOULD SAY THAT THE

CHURCH IS "X," "Y," "Z,"

AND FALLING SHORT, BUT

EVERY NIGHT WE SEE 10,000

PEOPLE COME TOGETHER TO

WORSHIP JESUS.

AND YOU LOOK AT THAT

CROWD, AND YOU GO, HOW CAN

YOU SAY THAT THE CHURCH

ISN'T POWERFUL, YOU KNOW?

THERE IS SO MUCH POWER IN

THE CHURCH.

AND I THINK WE'RE GOING TO

SEE A WHOLE LOT MORE TO

COME.

Efrem: WAS THERE

ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED TO

YOU IN YOUR LIFE THAT MADE

YOU SO PASSIONATE ABOUT

THE LOCAL CHURCH?

I GOT SAVED BECAUSE A

YOUTH PASTOR TOOK TIME OUT

OF HIS DAY, TO BRING ME

INTO HIS SMALL GROUP AND

TELL ME ABOUT JESUS.

I GOT SAVED AT THE END OF

HIGH SCHOOL, AND MY LIFE

WAS FOREVER CHANGED.

AND GOD FORGED THINGS IN

ME THAT I WOULD HAVE NEVER

FORGED OTHERWISE.

AND SO WHEN I STARTED

READING -- I WOULD GET ON

Facebook, AND I WOULD

SEE A BLOG POST ABOUT 10

REASONS MILLENNIALS ARE

LEAVING THE CHURCH.

AND SOMETHING IN ME KIND

OF AWAKENED, AND I FELT --

I GUESS OFFENC OFFENSE IS A

LITTLE STRONG -- BUT I

THOUGHT, BE CAREFUL.

I THINK THE LORD WAS

PUTTING IN ME THIS LOVE

FOR THE CHURCH I DIDN'T

HAVE EVEN BEFORE THAT.

AND NOW I LOOK BACK OVER

MY LIFE AND I GO, THAT

LOCAL CHURCH CHANGED ME.

IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

IT BROUGHT ME TO JESUS.

AND IF IT WEREN'T THERE,

IF IT WERE JUST PEOPLE

LISTENING TO POD COOFORTS,CASTS, I

DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD HAVE

MET THE LORD THE WAY I

DID.

Efrem: AND "STUDIO 5"

IS CATCHING UP WITH RYAN

AND THE MEMBERS OF THE

TOUR COMING UP.

SE BE SURE TO STICK AROUND

FOR THAT ON A FUTURE

EPISODE.

> UP NEXT ON "STUDIO

5"...

*

* SO LEAD ME, JESUS, AND I

WILL FOLLOW YOU *

Efrem: THIS GRAMMY

AWARD-WINNING ARTIST

DELIVERS LYRICS FOR A

LIVING.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

WE'RE JUST ABOUT OUT OF

TIME FOR THIS EDITION.

SO LET'S LOOK AHEAD TO

NEXT WEEK.

TAKE A LOOK.

* I'M PRAYING TO GOD

* DEEP I DEEPEN THE WATER *

Efrem: E SHON

BURGUNDY TAKES A BREAK

FROM THE STAGE TO SIT DOWN

WITH US.

> YOU'RE ALBUM IS CALLED

"PASSOVER" WHERPASSOVER."

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

IT IS LOOSELY BASED ON

THE PASSOVER THAT TAKES

PLACE IN SCU IN IN EXODUS.

Efrem: I'M GIVING THE

FINAL WORD TO A.J.

SCIVEN.

I'M BIG ON THE GREAT

COMMAND AND COMMISSION, TO

LOVE GOD WITH ALL OF MY

HEART, MIND, AND SOUL, AND

TO LOVE MY NEIGHBOR AS

MYSELF.

MUSIC HAS THE ABILITY TO

PASS ALL OF YOUR FILTERS.

MUSIC CARRIES A MESSAGE IN

IT.

I FEEL A RESPONSIBILITY AS

A WORSHIP LEADER AND AS AN

ARTIST TO CARRY MUSIC AND

THEOLOGY IN MY MUSIC, TO

TEACH PEOPLE.

Efrem: JUST REMEMBER,

GOD IS THE CREATOR OF

MUSIC, SO THERE IS NO

WONDER IT IS SO POWERFUL

AND IMPACTFUL.

THAT IS THE FINAL WORD FOR

THIS EDITION OF "STUDIO

5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT

AND TOUCH ME AT EFREM

GRAHAM ON Facebook,

TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM.

AND THEN YOU COME ON BACK

AND SEE WHERE "STUDIO 5"

TAKES YOU NEXT WEEK.
