Durmond Glanton was born on July 14, 1977. Since the time of his conception, the enemy has had a hit out on Durmond’s life. At the age of 4, he taught himself how to play the drums, and had it mastered by the age of 9. He served faithfully as the church drummer until the age of 22. It was then when Durmond locked himself in a room and taught himself how to play the piano.In 2000, while attending a local revival in Rochester, NY, a prophet named Eric Cooper from Phoenix, Arizona spoke into Durmond’s life and declared that “After the Storm, God is going to put your name in lights for the world to see.”Since then Durmond has survived 3 strokes, beginning stage lung cancer, a minor heart attack, homelessness, drug addiction and suicidal battles. If you ask him today, “Durmond, how were you able to go through all of that at such a young age and STILL survive?” His answer is simple, “When God is fighting for you, you can’t lose. People CHOOSE to be defeated, I choose to be UNDEFEATED with God on my side.”
Durmond is now a skillful Minister of Music at the WOW (Winning Over the World) Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He is an accomplished songwriter, vocal coach, music teacher, music producer and recording artist. His main goal in Kingdom work and in life, is changing the world “One song at a time”. Durmond’s plans are to give back to less fortunate churches in their music departments to help build strong bible based musicians for Ministry. He is a great example of overcoming all odds, and allowing others to see that ONLY through Jesus Christ, we are “UNDEFEATED”.tt
Durmond got a new single called “REJOICE”. Here’s a snippet

Minista Zeal was born in Chicago Illinois, raised in the projects and the son of a baptist preacher. He was raised in church, but his parents separated he turned to the streets, a life of gang banging and drug dealing.He ventured into the secular music and video industry and moved to Atlanta where he has worked with artist like T.I, Monica, The Franchise Boys, Jermaine Dupree, Big Boi from Outkast, Killer Mike, Young Jeezy, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Jodi Breeze, Bone Krusher etc .But it wasnt in Gods Plan to be successful in the secular industry. He wasn’t spiritually grounded enough which would have been dangerous. He was arrested in 2010 for a crime he didn’t commit, but it was God’s way of sitting him down to talk to him and get him back on the right track after serving six months in the Gwinnett County Detention Center. Reading the bible daily, Zeal was saved and born again and ready to do the Lords will and not that of satan. After being released, he joined First Baptist Church of Lilburn, became a member and was baptized. He has been through major trials and tribulations after being saved; losing everything he owned (house, car, job, studio). He still continued Praising the Lord with all his heart. He trusted that the Lord would bring him out of the house he lived in with no lights, water or gas for seven months.
The house was called the House of Prayer, there were no distractions and the Holy Spirit had a Powerful Presence. God spoke to Minista Zeal on December 31, 2011 and said to him write a album for Me . At that time Minista Zeal had writers block for over 15 yrs but God Blessed his pen and he wrote 11 songs in less than a month. The album entitled God is Love was written. At that time Zeal was on a 30 day fast. The Holy Spirit moved his pen and created this album. The new single No I’m Not Perfect is a powerful song about Minista Zeal’s trails and tribulations. Please listen to what God has put in his heart. Thank you Jesus for Sacrificing your life for us.He has restored everything Zeal had lost and blessed him with more, his cup is tremendously running over.
Who is Recording Artist and Book Author Monique Jefferson?
When I was young, I had several people in my life tell me I would be nothing. They thought because of my size, style, circumstance, and complexion that I would be a statistic. I am glad I didn’t listen to them. My uncle Jade taught me to use what God gave me and it would make room for me to see and go placed others couldn’t imagine. God gave me the gift of poetry and music. He helped me to see intelligence is true beauty. My Mom always told me “If I didn’t say it about you, it is not true. You are different for a purpose. Use it to help others.” She told me “it was my job to keep her well.” So I use what God gifted to touch the hearts and souls of his people. My Grandfather Sam and Uncle Ray taught me to be me and be creative and unashamed of the gifts and talents God gave me.Greatness doesn’t come from what you have tangibly. It comes from the legacy of love and life that you create and leave. In daring to be great you can’t follow the crowd. In daring to be great you have to set precedence to be more than your environment and circumstances.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made according to Psalms 139:14a. I dare to be great for those who follow me. Over the course of my life I have had many mentors and teachers pour wisdom into and push me to do great things I thought I was not qualified to do. My Motto is Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” While our timing is not God’s timing his timing is always in season
