Efrem: SECONDS AWAY

ON "STUDIO 5"...

SITTING DOWN WITH THE

GLOBAL PASTOR OF HILLSONG

CHURCH.

AND...

*

Efrem: SAMPLING NEW

SOUNDS FROM HILLSONG

UNITED.

THEN...

SETH CURRY, COOKING

WITH THE POT.

Efrem: WE'RE IN THE

KITCHEN AND ON THE COURT,

THE FIRST FAMILY OF THE

NBA IS IN "STUDIO 5,"

STARTING NOW.

*

Efrem: WELCOME TO

YOUR WEEKLY RUNDOWN OF THE

BEST IN UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

LET'S JUMP RIGHT IN WITH

THE FIRST TWO IN THE

COUNTDOWN.

AT NUMBER FIVE...

I WANT TO SING.

Efrem: TRANSFORMERS

HITS THEATERS FRIDAY, AND

THE BREAKOUT STAR SHARES A

POWERFUL TRANSFORMATION

STORY OF HIS OWN IN A

COMPELLING "I AM SECOND"

FILM.

I STARTED THINKING

ABOUT HOW I TREATED MY

MOM, AND I WOULD THINK

ABOUT THINGS I DID IN THE

PAST, AND I STILL YEARNED

FOR THAT ETERNAL PRESENCE.

I COULDN'T REALLY SLEEP.

I BEGAN TO HAVE SUICIDAL

THOUGHTS.

I WAS AT THE LOWEST POINT

I HAD EVER BEEN IN MY

ENTIRE LIFE.

Efrem: AT AGE FIVE,

THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT

SEIZED THE FAMILY'S ASSETS

AFTER HIS FATHER DIED.

IT FORCED HIM AND HIS

FAMILY TO FLEE TO NEW YORK

CITY, WHERE HE FELL INTO A

LIFE OF CRIME.

I LITERALLY BEGAN TO

CRY OUT TO JESUS, HELP ME,

JESUS, HELP ME.

Efrem: HE ENTERED THE

METHEMILITARY AND BECAME A NAVY

SEAL BEFORE PURSUING AN

ACTING CAREER.

I BEGAN TO SURROUND

MYSELF AROUND CHRISTIANS

WHO DIDN'T JUST READ THE

BIBLE, BUT THEY LIVED THE

BIBLE.

AND I BEGAN TO PRAY.

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS BE

WITH HIM.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...

* HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE

WONDER *

Efrem: HILLSONG'S

"WONDER" DEBUTS AT NUMBER

ONE, AND LANDS THE

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN

POWERHOUSE AN APPEARANCE

ON "THE "TODAY SHOW"."

THE NEW PROJECT IS A CALL

TO AWAKEN THE WONDER

INSIDE US ALL.

> THAT'S NUMBER FIVE AND

FOUR.

MORE TO COME IN JUST A

BIT.

> ALONGSIDE HER HUSBAND,

BOBBIE HOUSTON LEADS ONE

OF THE FASTEST GROWING

CHURCHES IN THE WORLD,

HILLSONG UNITED.

I SAT DOWN TO TALK WITH

HER.

IT IS THIS WEEK'S "STUDIO

5" INTERVIEW.

ALL RIGHT.

SUDDENLY YOU AWAKEN TO

WHAT LIFE IS TRULY ABOUT.

Efrem: BOBBIE HOUSTON

AND HER HUSBAND HAVE SEEN

HILLSONG GROW FROM A TINY

CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA TO A

MASSIVE MINISTRY, REACHING

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

SHE HAS LEARNED A LOT IN

40 YEARS OF MINISTRY, AND

SHE IS SHARING IT IN HER

LATEST BOOK, "STAY THE

PATH: NAVIGATING THE

CHALLENGES AND WONDER OF

LIFE, LOVE, AND

LEADERSHIP."

I THINK IT IS CRITICAL

FOR EVERYBODY.

EVERYBODY IS ON A PATHWAY,

WHETHER THEY REALIZE IT OR

NOT.

EVERYBODY IS HEADED

TOWARDS SOMETHING.

I THINK IT IS SO CRITICAL

AT SOME POINT -- THAT

DESTINATION IS SO

IMPORTANT.

I THINK THAT PEOPLE NEED

TO BE ENCOURAGED TO

ACTUALLY GET A CONVICTION

ABOUT THIS, A REVELATION

ABOUT THIS.

BECAUSE IT IS THOSE THINGS

THAT HOLD YOU TO THE PAST,

AND THE ENEMY COMES.

WE'VE BEEN IN MINISTRY A

LONG TIME.

WE HAVE CHILDREN, NOT TO

MENTION AN EXPANSIVE

CHURCH OF MANY BEAUTIFUL

SONS AND DAUGHTERS ALL

OVER THE WORLD.

I SORT OF TOOK PART, AND

BY THE GRACE OF GOD, IF MY

JOURNEY COULD TEACH YOU

ANYTHING, THIS IS WHAT I

MIGHT SAY.

Efrem: HILLSONG HAS

EXTENDED AND TO ISRAEL AS

WELL NOW?

YES.

IT HASN'T ACTUALLY FULLY

BEGUN YET.

BUT WE HAVE SEEDED THAT WE

WANT TO DO THAT.

WE HAVE GONE TO ISRAEL IN

RECENT YEARS AND FALLEN IN

LOVE WITH THE PLACE.

PEOPLE THINK WE HAVE THIS

HUGE GLOBAL STRATEGY, AND

IT'S, LIKE, NO.

ACTUALLY, IT IS ALL ABOUT

THE RIGHT PERSON AT THE

RIGHT TIME.

AND WHEN HE FEELS IT.

SO WE WERE IN ISRAEL LAST

JUNE, AND WE MET A

REMARKABLE YOUNG WOMAN,

SINGLE WOMAN, IN HER

40s, AND SHE IS THE

PRINCIPLE AT HER BIBLE

COLLEGE.

SHE HAS A HUGE HEART FOR

ISRAEL.

OUT OF THAT CONVERSATION,

IT JUST FELT RIGHT.

SO, YEAH, WE ANNOUNCED IT.

AND WE'RE GOING TO SPEAK

TO PLANET CHURCH IN TEL

AVIV, WHICH IS A

REMARKABLE CITY.

I MEAN, IT IS HERALDED AS

POSSIBLY THE BEST CITY IN

EUROPE.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO TEL

AVIV?

Efrem: YES, I HAVE.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CITY.

AND IT IS FULL OF ISRAELI

YOUNG PEOPLE.

AND THEY MIGHT BE JEWISH

BY HERITAGE, BUT THEY'RE

NOT CONCERNED.

UNLIKE WHEN YOU GO TO

JERUSALEM, WHICH IS SUCH A

CONTRAST OF REALITY.

AND THEY'RE YOUNG AND

THEIR VIBRANT.

AND I THINK THEY'RE IN

SEARCH OF TRUTH.

SO I THINK THAT IS A

PERFECT RECIPE FOR THE

GOSPEL TO GO IN THERE.

AND IN THE END, WE'RE JUST

HOPING TO PLAY OUR PART IN

THAT AND BE WHO WE ARE.

THE INTEREST OF ISRAELI

YOUNG PEOPLE -- WE WANT TO

HELP.

WE REALLY LIKE YOU PEOPLE,

AND WE REALLY WANT TO

HELP.

WE'RE, LIKE, THIS IS QUITE

MIRACULOUS.

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE

DAY, IT IS ABOUT PEOPLE

COMING TO CHRIST.

Efrem: IN TALKING TO

YOUR HUSBAND AND YOUR

SON -- I'VE INTERVIEWED

BOTH -- YOUR HUSBAND HAD

SAID FROM THE BIRTH OF

HILLSONG, HE ALWAYS WANTED

MUSIC TO BE A BIG PART OF

THAT.

YES.

Efrem: NOW THAT I SIT

DOWN WITH YOU, WAS THAT

ALWAYS AT YOUR HEART --

WELL, I THINK I WAS --

WELL, I WAS PROBABLY JUST

VERY YOUNG AND NAIVE AND

MANAGING A YOUNG FAMILY,

RIGHT?

AND EVERYTHING THAT GOES

WITH THAT.

WHEN I GOT TO SAVED, I

WENT TO A REMARKABLE

CHURCH IN NEW ZEALAND.

AND SO I HAVE ONLY EVER

BEEN IN THAT CHURCH AND

REALLY OUR CHURCH IN

AUSTRALIA.

THOSE ARE MY ONLY TWO PLAN

PLANTINES.

HONESTLY, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN

IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF

WORSHIP.

I REMEMBER THE FIRST

MOMENT, THE FIRST TIME I

GOT SAVED.

I WAS GOING TO SUNDAY

MORNING CHURCH, WALKING

DOWN THE AISLE OF THE

OAKLAND TOWNHALL.

WORSHIP WAS PLAYING AND IT

WAS BEAUTIFUL MUSIC.

AND I HAD JUST READ PSALM

27.

AND IN THAT MOMENT, I FELL

IN LOVE WITH THE HOUSE OF

GOD.

AND I THINK THE MOMENT,

THE ATMOSPHERE, THE

PRESENCE OF GOD, AND THE

MUSIC, THE WORSHIP, ALL

CONTRIBUTED TO THAT

MOMENT.

* MY HEART IS BEATING

* MY SOUL'S BREATHING

* I FOUND MY LIFE WHEN I

LAID IT DOWN *

WORSHIP IS THE SOUND OF

HEAVEN.

SO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT

HEAVEN ON EARTH, BRINGING

A TASTE OF HEAVEN ON

EARTH, WELL, OF COURSE

PRAISE IS PART OF THAT

WORSHIP.

AND WE'VE BEEN BLESSED TO

PLAY A PART OF THAT, IN

BRINGING A SONG NOT ONLY

TO OUR LOCAL CHURCH,

BECAUSE THAT'S REALLY

WHERE IT BEGINS, BUT

ACTUALLY TO THE GREATER

BODY OF CHRIST.

Efrem: AND BOBBIE'S

BOOK, "STAY THE PATH," IS

AVAILABLE NOW, WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

STAY WITH US.

WE'VE GOT MORE ON HILLSONG

STILL AHEAD.

STILL AHEAD HERE ON

"STUDIO 5"...

*

Efrem: THE NEAR DEATH

STORY BEHIND THIS

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

THE HILLSONG STORY

CONTINUES WITH NEW MUSIC

IN JUST A MOMENT.

FIRST, LET'S LOOK AT

THE NEXT TWO HEADLINES IN

OUR WEEKLY COUNTDOWN OF

THE BEST UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

AT NUMBER THREE...

*

Efrem: A SURPRISE

WAKEUP CALL FOR KATY PERRY

FROM HER CHOIR AND HER

FAVORITE SINGER,

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN

RECORDING ARTIST CRYSTAL

LEWIS.

THIS IS CRYSTAL LEWIS,

LIKE MY FAVORITE SINGER

GROWING UP.

OH, MY GOSH.

THIS IS LIKE MY MADONNA.

Efrem: WITH THE

RELEASE OF NEW MUSIC,

PERRY STREAMED HER LIFE

AND GAVE AUDIENCES AN

INTIMATE LOOK AT HER

STRUGGLE WITH FAITH.

GROWING UP -- WELL, I

LOVE MY PARENTS.

AND I GREW UP WITH A LOT

OF BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN

BELIEFS AROUND ME.

AND SO I HAD PEOPLE AROUND

ME, LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE

LIKE THAT, AND I WOULD SAY

THAT IT WAS A BIT OF A

BUBBLE.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

TWO...

*

* COME ON IN

Efrem: CHANCE THE

RAPPER IS ADDING A SIGN

LANGUAGE INTERPRETER TO

THE REMAINING STOPS OF HIS

"BE ENCOURAGED" TOUR.

AND HE IS THE FIRST

HIP-HOP ARTIST TO

INCORPORATE AN AMERICAN

SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER

FOR HIS SHOWS.

*

Efrem: HILLSONG

UNITED IS A MULTI-PLATINUM

POWERHOUSE, AND THEIR

LATEST DEBUTS AT NUMBER

ONE.

HERE IS A SAMPLE OF THE

SINGLE "WONDER."

IT'S WHAT IS PLAYING IN MY

EAR.

* I SEE WORTHY GOD

*

Efrem: THAT IS A

SAMPLE OF THE TUNE

"WONDER," FROM HILLSONG

UNITED.

HERE ARE BAND MEMBERS JOE

HOUSTON AND J.D.

THANK YOU GUYS FOR BEING

HERE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

Efrem: THIS IS YOUR

SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM, AND IT

DEBUTS AT NUMBER ONE.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HOW

PEOPLE ARE RESPONDING TO

IT?

I MEAN, IT'S

ENCOURAGING.

I GUESS IT COULD BE WORSE.

[LAUGHTER]

WE'RE STILL IN THE BEST

PART OF THE LAST YEAR KIND

OF LIVING AND BREATHING

THIS PROJECT.

AND YOU KNOW, YOU POUR SO

MUCH OF YOURSELF INTO IT.

AND THEN WHEN IT COMES

TIME, YOU'RE JUST, LIKE,

WELL, HERE IT IS,

EVERYBODY.

AND THEN IT IS BEYOND YOUR

CONTROL IN MANY WAYS.

TO ME, I LOVE IT.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT'S

MUSIC AND ART AND

CREATIVITY.

AND THE STORY IS SOMETHING

THAT WILL MAKE A WAY FOR

ITSELF, AND ALWAYS HAS

FROM THE BEGINNING OF

TIME.

AND SO IT IS ONE OF THOSE

THINGS LIKE, HERE IT IS.

LET GOD TAKE IT WHERE HE

WANTS.

Efrem: I BELIEVE THIS

PROJECT WAS MEANT TO

REIGNITE HOPE AND

IMAGINATION.

DO YOU FEEL LIKE WE'VE

LOST THE WONDER?

I THINK IT IS REALLY,

REALLY EASY FOR US TO GET

FAMILIAR IN LIFE.

I THINK WHEN WE FIRST

STARTED WORKING ON THE

ALBUM, AND JUST THINKING

ABOUT IT, WHAT IS IT THAT

GOD WANTS TO SAY, WHAT IS

IT THAT IS GOING ON IN THE

WORLD, AND THE MESSAGE IS

TIMELESS.

AND YET IT IS ALWAYS GOOD

FOR THE SEASON.

I THINK WE CAME BACK TO

JUST THE ROOTS OF WHY WE

FELL IN LOVE WITH GOD IN

THE FIRST PLACE, AND WHY

WE FELL IN LOVE WITH MUSIC

IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I REMEMBER AT THE END OF

LAST YEAR -- IT WAS A

CRAZY TIME THEN AND NOW,

AND I'M FLIPPING FLEW THROUGH

CABLE NETWORKS, TRYING TO

FIND OUT WHAT IS TRUE AND

WHAT IS NOT.

AND MY SON WAS RUNNING

AROUND JUST WANTING TO BE

BATMAN.

AND I PRAY WE NEVER LOSE

THAT CHILD-LIKE FAITH.

SEEING THE BEST OF

EVERYTHING AND WANTING TO

TAKE IT ALL IN.

I THINK THERE IS BEAUTY TO

BE FOUND IN THE MIDST OF

THE MADNESS, IN THE MIDST

OF THE CHAOS AND ALL THE

TENSION.

AND OUR JOB AS CHRISTIANS

OR PEOPLE OF FAITH IS ONE

WHERE WE NEED TO NOT LOOK

AT THE WORLD JUST PURELY

THROUGH OUR LENS, BUT ALSO

THROUGH IT'S LEN THE LENS OF GRACE

AND SEE PEOPLE THROUGH THE

LENS OF GRACE.

Efrem: J.D., WHAT HAS

BEEN YOUR PRAYER FOR THIS

PROJECT?

LIKE JOE TALKING, I'VE

GOT THREE KIDS FOR MYSELF.

AND WHENEVER I FACE

TIME -- I'VE GOT TWO GIRLS

AND A BOY -- AND HIS FACE

LIGHTS UP WHEN HE SEES ME.

HOPEFULLY IN THE SAME WAY

PEOPLE'S FACES LIGHT UP

WHEN THEY HEAR THIS MUSIC,

NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE

MUSIC ALONE, BUT THE

MESSAGE IT CARRIES, AND

THE WAY IT WILL BRING

COURAGE AND ENCOURAGE

PEOPLE.

MAKE THE DECISION TO LOOK

AT THE WORLD THROUGH THE

EYES OF WONDER AND FAITH.

Efrem: JOE, I HEARD

YOU SAY THAT A NEAR-DEATH

EXPERIENCE HELPED INSPIRE

THIS IN A WAY.

CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT

THAT?

YEAH.

IT WAS MANY YEARS AGO, AND

I WAS SURFING, AND I WAS

JUST THINKING ABOUT IT AT

THE SAME TIME I STARTED

WORK ON THE ALBUM.

I WAS THINKING, THAT WAS A

CRAZY TIME.

I DROWNED, BASICALLY.

I GAVE UP AND I COULDN'T

FIGHT ANYMORE.

AND I DON'T REMEMBER HOW I

ENDED UP GETTING WASHED UP

ON THE SHORE, BUT I FOUND

MYSELF JUST GRASPING LIFE.

I REMEMBER MY HANDS BEING

IN THE SAND.

I HAD NO STRENGTH.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AT THE

SAND AND THINKING, OH, MY

GOODNESS, SAND, YOU'RE

LIKE DIAMONDS.

I'VE NEVER APPRECIATED

YOU.

YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND YOU'VE

BEEN CAST BY THE WIND AND

THE SEAS AND WASHED

ASHORE.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

DEATH AND JUST THE REALITY

OF LIFE THAT IS -- IT

SHOULD HELP US AWAKEN TO

JUST BEING GRATEFUL FOR

WHAT WE HAVE, THE BREATH

IN OUR LUNGS.

THE FACT THAT GOD IS IN

EVERYTHING.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AT

EVERYTHING THAT EVENING

AND JUST THINKING, OH, MY

GOODNESS.

THERE IS SO MUCH BEAUTY

THAT I MISSED JUST IN THE

MUNDANE.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR US

TO LIVE KIND OF LOOKING

THROUGH THIS LENS LIKE

THIS.

WE HAVE TO SEE WHAT GOD IS

DOING BECAUSE HE IS DOING

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.

Efrem: THANK YOU BOTH

SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.

THE PROJECT IS CALLED

"WONDER," AND IT IS

CERTAINLY WORTH HEARING.

GOD BLESS YOU BOTH.

THANKS.

THANKS.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD ON

"STUDIO 5"...

THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT

WE CAN ERADICATE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

PREVENTABLE.

Efrem: SO HOW THE

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "STUDIO 5."

IT IS NOW TIME FOR THIS

WEEK'S NUMBER ONE IN OUR

LOOK AT UPLIFTING

ENTERTAINMENT NEWS.

AT NUMBER ONE...PRODUCTION

HAS WRAPPED IN MEMPHIS.

TAKE THREE.

Efrem: FOR

"INDIVISIBLE," THE FEATURE

FILM ABOUT REAL LIFE ARMY

CHAPLAIN DARREN TURNER,

WHO SERVED DURING THE IRAQ

WAR AND RECEIVED THE

BRONZE STAR FOR VALOR, BUT

WATCHED HIS FAMILY FALL

APART.

"STUDIO 5" WAS ONSET WITH

THE CAST AND CREW,

INCLUDING SARAH DREW.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT

HIT VERY, VERY CLOSE TO

HOME FOR ME.

I'M NOT A MILITARY FAMILY,

BUT JUST FROM THE MARRIAGE

PERSPECTIVE, GOING THROUGH

A VERY DARK TIME AND

COMING OUT INTO THE LIGHT,

INTO A MUCH MORE BRILLIANT

LIGHT.

THE REDEMPTION STORY.

Efrem: AND THAT WRAPS

THIS WEEK'S COUNTDOWN.

> HE IS FRESH OFF OF A

CHAMPIONSHIP WIN, AND SHE

IS FRESH OUT OF THE

KITCHEN.

WITH THE SECOND SEASON OF

HER FOOD NETWORK SHOW.

SETH AND AISHA CURRY ARE A

POWER COUPLE.

WELCOME TO THE SAN

FRANCISCO BAY AREA AND TO

ORACLE ARENA, HOME COURT

FOR THE NBA CHAMPS, IT'S

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS, AND

SETSETH CURRY.

BUT EVEN AFTER HELPING HIS

TEAM TO THEIR SECOND

CHAMPIONSHIP WIN AND THREE

YEARS, HE STILL OFTEN

WONDERS, HOW DID I GET

HERE?

100%.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I

THINK BACK TO WHEN I WAS

DRAFTED AND DIDN'T KNOW

EXACTLY THE DIRECTION WE

WERE GOING.

FROM A LOSING TEAM TO NOW

WE'RE PLAYING

CHAMPIONSHIPS AND HAVE A

HUGE STAGE TO PLAY ON

EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

IT IS AN AMAZING JOURNEY.

Efrem: FANS LOVE

CURRY FOR HIS GAME, BUT

THEY ALSO ADMIRE HIM FOR

HIS FAITH AND HIS LOVE FOR

HIS FAMILY.

I'VE LEARNED WELL FROM

MY PARENTS.

THEY SET A VERY, VERY HIGH

STANDARD OF WHO YOU ARE

AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND

HOW JESUS CAN WORK THROUGH

YOU ON A DAILY BASE BASIS, AND

THAT SHOULD BE AT THE

FOREFRONT.

AND TO NOT BE ASHAMED OF

THAT.

Efrem: SHARING THAT

BOLD FAITH AND CHEERING

HIM ON FROM THE SIDELINES

IS HIS BIGGEST FAN, HIS

WIFE, AISHA.

Efrem: HAVE YOU

ALWAYS BEEN A BASKETBALL

FAN?

OH, GOSH, NOT AT ALL.

I COME FROM A VERY ARTSY

FAMILY.

THE ONLY INTRODUCTION TO

SPORTS BEFORE MEETING MY

HUSBAND WAS BUFFALO BILLS

FOOTBALL AND DOUG FLUTIE

FLAKES.

Efrem: NOW HER FOCUS

IS NBA BASKETBALL AS SHE

CHEERS ON HER HUSBAND AT

ALMOST ALL OF THE

WARRIORS' HOME GAMES.

AWAY FROM THE COURT --

HIGH GUYS.

HI GUYS.

TODAY I HAVE A RECIPE FOR

YOU GUYS THAT IS A STAPLE

IN OUR HOUSEHOLD.

Efrem: HER PASSION

MOVES TO THE KITCHEN,

SHARING RECIPES AND

COOKING TIPS TO THE

MILLIONS WHO FOLLOW HER ON

LINE, AND IN HER

BEST-SELLING COOKBOOK.

WAS THIS IS HARD THING TO

DO?

YEAH.

THERE WERE POINTS WHEN I

WANTED TO GIVE UP.

THERE WERE POINTS THAT

WERE ENJOYABLE, AND THERE

WERE POINTS WHERE I DIDN'T

WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE, BUT

I PUSHED THROUGH AND I'M

REALLY HAPPY THAT I DID.

BECAUSE I NOW HAVE THIS

GREAT BOOK FULL OF QUICK

AND EASY RECIPES FOR

EVERYBODY TO ENJOY, BUT

MORE SO FOR ME TO PASS

DOWN TO MY DAUGHTERS.

Efrem: FRIENDS AND A

GENTLE PUSH FROM HER

HUSBAND HELPED AISHA BEGIN

SHARING HER FUN KITCHEN

LIFE AND FANS QUICKLY

FOLLOWED.

> HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU

THINK IT IS FOR PEOPLE TO

ACKNOWLEDGE GOD IN THAT

PROCESS?

I THINK IT IS VERY

IMPORTANT.

BECAUSE YOU CAN FIND

YOURSELF IN A PLACE YOU

DON'T WANT TO BE REALLY

QUICKLY.

SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAKE

SURE YOU'RE ALWAYS

PRAYING, ALWAYS TALKING,

TO HAVE CLARITY OF MIND

AND PEACE.

Efrem: YOUR HUSBAND

IS PHENOMENAL ON THE

BASKETBALL COURT.

THANK YOU.

Efrem: AND THE

KITCHEN, WHAT'S THE STORY?

HE IS GETTING BETTER.

YOU KNOW, PERSISTENCE.

Efrem: AWAY FROM THE

KITCHEN AND OFF THE COURT,

THE CURRYS ARE GIVERS,

DONATING LIFE-SAVING BED

NETS FOR PEOPLE IN NEED.

IT IS THE "NOTHING BUT

NETS" CAMPAIGN, TIED TO

EVERY THREE POINTER THAT

HE GET IN THE GAMES.

MALARIA IS A

DEVASTATING DISEASE,

ESPECIALLY FOR FAMILIES

WITH KIDS UNDER FIVE.

AND THOSE PARENTS CAN'T

PROTECT THEIR YOUNG WERE ONES

FROM A MOSQUITO BITE, AND

THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF

MALARIA WITHOUT OUR HELP.

THIS IS AN ISSUE WE CAN

ERADICATE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS

PREVENTABLE, AND WE'RE ON

THAT MISSION.

Efrem: IN ADDITION TO

A COOKING SHOW AND A

RESTAURANT, SHE ALSO HAS A

GREAT COOKBOOK.

> STILL AHEAD ON "STUDIO

5"...

* OH, THE THUNDER SPEAKS

OF YOUR POWER *

Efrem: SINGER ADAM

Efrem: WELL, WE ARE

ALMOST OUT OF TIME FOR

THIS SHOW.

HERE IS A LOOK AT WHAT

WE'RE WORKING ON FOR NEXT

WEEK'S EPISODE OF "STUDIO

5."

* HELLO, MY NAME IS

REGRET *

* I'M PRETTY SURE WE HAVE

MET *

Efrem: MATTHEW WEST

STEPS AWAY FROM THE STAGE

FOR A CANDID CONVERSATION.

Efrem: WHAT DOES A

CHRISTIAN SINGER AND

SONGWRITER, AWARD-WINNING,

KNOW ABOUT STRUGGLING TO

FIND IDENTITY.

I THOUGHT YOU WERE

GOING TO ASK WHAT DOES AN

AWARD-WINNING SONGWRITER

KNOW ABOUT WRITING A BOOK.

Efrem: WE'RE GOING

INSIDE "HELLO, MY NAME

IS," MATTHEW'S NEW BOOK ON

FINDING IDENTITY.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST

STRUGGLES I'VE HAD IS

REALIZING I'M NOT DEFINED

BY THE MUSIC I MAKE OR HOW

MANY PEOPLE COME TO MY

CONCERT.

* HELLO, MY NAME IS

DECEIT *

* I KNOW YOU RECOGNIZE

ME *

Efrem: THAT STORY AND

MORE ARE AHEAD FOR NEXT

WEEK.

AS FOR THIS SHOW, I'M

GIVING THE FINAL WORD TO

THE FRONT MAN OF AUDIO

ADRENALIN, ADAM AGEY.

* I LOVE TO SHARE THE SONG

OF CREATION *

* THE WIND AND THE RHYTHM

OF THE RAIN *

* OH, THE THUNDER SPEAKS

OF YOUR POWER *

* BUT THERE IS SOMETHING

IN THE SOUND OF YOUR

NAME *

AT THE HANDS OF THE

PROJECT, WE HAVE TWO

CHILDREN'S VILLAGES, AND

THEN ALSO WE HAVE A NEW

PROJECT THAT WE JUST

COMPLETED CALLED "A

CONDO," WHICH IS A

MISSIONS' GUEST VILLAGE.

WHERE WE ENCOURAGE

MISSIONS TO COME AND

EXPERIENCE HAITI, NOT JUST

TO SEE THE POVERTY AND

EVERYTHING, BUT TO HANG

OUT WITH OUR KIDS, AND SEE

THE DIFFERENCE IN OUR

KIDS, AND THEN TO POUR

INTO THE LOCAL ECONOMY AND

EXPERIENCE HAITI ON A

TOURISM BASIS.

SO WE TAKE CARE OF ABOUT

100 ORPHANED AND ABANDONED

KIDS.

THE GOAL IS TO KEEP

FAMILIES TOGETHER, FIRST

AND FOREMOST.

BUT IF THAT'S NOT AN

OPTION, WE TAKE CARE OF

THE KIDS.

WE'VE HAD SOME OF OUR

FIRST KIDS GRADUATE.

THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN GOING

FOR ABOUT 13 YEARS.

* I WILL HEAR THE CHORUS

OF THE ANGELS *

WE GET TO TOUR ALL OVER

THE WORLD, IN FRONT OF

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

AND TO JUST PLAY MUSIC

WOULD BE SUCH A WASTE.

IT WOULD BE SUCH A WASTE

OF TIME AND SO FLEETING.

AND TO BE ABLE TO TELL THE

WORLD ABOUT THE NEED IN

HAITI ESPECIALLY, BUT JUST

OVERALL THERE ARE SO MANY

PEOPLE IN NEED, AND JUST

TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GET

OUT AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Efrem: THAT'S A GOOD

WORD FROM ADAM, AND THE

FINAL WORD FOR THIS

EDITION OF "STUDIO 5."

UNTIL NEXT TIME, REACH OUT

AND TOUCH ME AT EFREM

GRAHAM ON Facebook,

TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, AND

SNAPCHAT, AND THEN YOU

COME ON BACK AND SEE WHERE

"STUDIO 5" TAKES YOU NEXT

WEEK.

BYE-BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.
