Song – Won’t Let You Hold Me Down The song ,Won’t Let You Hold Me Down is a song that is meant to inspire and encourage the listener. With all that we have gone through over the past year, we must remember that we are More Than Conquerors through Christ Jesus and by God we will overcome adversity. We can’t let fear nor depression or even that mean old devil stop us.
Asiah Best is an upcoming Gospel artist who was born and raised in the DMV area. Coming from a family of singers, it was natural for Asiah to pick up a microphone and start a praise service at church at the early age of three. Her passion began there and has not stopped as she was a soloist in school choirs starting in kindergarten and continued throughout her early school years.
She did not realize how special her gift was until she attended her first year at St. Augustine’s University in Raleigh, NC when she was chosen to go with the choir to a competition against other HBCU’s and realized that she was the only Freshman at the competition from any of the universities – and her gift, once again, stood out amongst the vocalists.
Releasing her first single “Conversation With God” in 2018, which she wrote at the young age of 14, her songwriting has increased as God is preparing a way for her gift to minister to the masses.

Alfreder (Freda) Gardner is a melodious vocalist hailing from New York City by way of Brooklyn and the Bronx. Although she had some health challenges in her early years, BUT GOD answered her parent’s prayers and she was able to overcome her maladies. Following the path of her mother, siblings, and aunts, Freda began using her gift of song at the tender age of 5, at The New Frontier Baptist Church – Brooklyn, New York. Her gift led her to the High School of Music and Art (Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & the Arts) where she honed and augmented her musical talents. The mantra of the city is “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere;” however, her dreams of grandeur and fame were delayed and detoured. After the loss of her biggest supporter, her earthly father, Freda veered away from the call of her heavenly father vowing to never sing gospel again. BUT GOD!
What the devil meant for your bad, God’s grace and mercy will work it out for your good…Freda became what some would say a statistic, a pregnant high school dropout… BUT GOD! Realizing the importance of education, she quickly attained her GED and full-time employment. The Lord says, I’m with you all the way for it was GOD… who delivered her from an abusive marriage and opened a door for a job opportunity in Washington, D.C. A praying and discerning aunt encouraged her to attend church and sing to GOD’s glory again. Her gift enabled her to sing on choirs, events and programs. The announcement of working on this project for those close to her was met with an “about time,” response. Freda heeded to her favorite scripture Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope – “In GOD’s Time.”

Rico L. Dawson, native of Goldsboro, North Carolina, completed his high school education at Goldsboro High School in 1986. After completing active duty with the United States Army in 1991 he enrolled in Elizabeth City State University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Music Industry Studies with a concentration in Music Business Administration in 1995. It was during his military years that Rico’s musical journey began. In 1987, while serving in the U.S. Army, Rico became a member of the amateur R&B group, “Finesse.” At this time, he wrote the single, “To Be With You.” During his college years at ECSU, he performed with the group, “Next Episode.” At this time he wrote “A Lonely Night: and co-wrote, “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine.” The latter was recorded by “Next Episode” for ECSU’s CD compilation project “Check the Resume: Vol. 1.” After the breakup of the group in 1995, he worked as an intern for Intersection Records, an independent record label. While there, he wrote and recorded the demo interlude, “Don’t Look No Further.” When the record company unexpectedly closed, he returned to North Carolina.
Upon returning to the Carolinas, Rico began working with a local producer, Lee Tate. This collaboration birthed the songs “Promises” and “Come Back to Me” in 1997. In October 1998, he participated in a music seminar sponsored by WNAA-FM radio station. In December of that year, he showcased his demo for the Philadelphia Music Conference in Philadelphia, PA. After taking a year away from the music scene, he returned in the spring of 2000 to collaborate on a local compilation CD “Goldsboro 27530.” On that CD he wrote and recorded three songs, “All I Want to Do,” “Do You Wanna Dance,” and “Turn Away.” These three songs were well received on the underground circuit. In 2001, he co-wrote and sang background on the single “Take Our Time” on Richard Ashe’s debut independent CD, “Anticipation.” The single received good feedback in the Durham, NC area. During that time, Rico began to teach music education in the Wayne County Public Schools. He wrote, produced, and arranged numerous original music selections for several schools from 2001 – 2004. n the summer of 2004, Rico gave his life to Christ, thus putting him on a different path, musically. He no longer produced music for man’s glory, but for God’s glory. He began to put together gospel music selections and with God’s help, he produced numerous contemporary gospel music selections. In 2006, Rico wrote and produced his debut contemporary gospel CD, “It’s Time.” Due to lack financial resources Rico was unable to get the project commercially ready. Once again Rico took time away from music to establish a stronger relationship with Christ. During that time of the wilderness, Rico continued to write songs, but he didn’t record anything again until 2008. Rico pursued possibilities of becoming an established songwriter. Although he received some interest, the interest didn’t materialize into any legitimate offers. Once again Rico has written, produced, and recorded several God-inspired songs. Rico’s desire that through his music that the body of Christ is edified, God be glorified, and the un-believer is inspired to repent and turn to the Lord. He is currently working on additional musical selections as well as having served in the capacity of choral director at Rocky Mount High School during 2011-2012 school year. His original composition “Dreams The Impossible Dream” was also performed by the school chorus in the past year’s Christmas concert. He has been working various musical selections of various genres. He currently is a choir director at Charles B. Aycock as well. He is in process of putting the finishing touches on his debut CD titled “Suppose To Be”. The project will consist of ten God-inspired songs that he hopes will inspire God’s people.
I call myself G.W.P. it stands for God’s Warrior Prazin’ It’s the stage name God gave me when he saved me. He changed my name just like he did some of the other people in the bible when He changed them. I grew up hating my given name…”Roger” until the Lord showed me what it means. The name Roger actually means “God’s Warrior”. The Word says if you are in Christ you are a new creature. The Lord not only changes you from sinner to saint but he completely changes who you were all the way down to your character. He changed Saul to Paul, He changed Abram to Abraham. Well, He did the same thing to me. He changed me from who I was to who I am now. I was born and raised in Gary, IN. Home of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and all the rest of them Jacksons. Anyway, I’ve played and sung music all my life It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do and I tried to make a career out of it my whole life but with little success.
I lived in South Bend IN for several years. There I met a young man who has become one of my best friends, named Anthony Gullens aka TSwang and we formed a group called NINE. That was the best group of people I’ve ever worked with. We had the distinction of being the first local group to get airplay in regular rotation on what was the first urban radio station in the area, WSMK 99.1.
I believe the Lord has been calling me all my life but I chose to ignore Him and do my own thing, not smart, cause if God wants you He’s gonna get you, remember Jonah? I gave my life to the Lord in 1995, and let myself get into some bad situations that caused me to “go through” as they say for about 3 years, but I was a baby Christian and didn’t know what I didn’t know, you know? In 1999 I got a call that changed my life forever. A friend called me to tell me that my mother had died in a fire in the house I grew up in. Well prior to this happening God had given me a vision of me moving back home, (to Gary, IN) and I told Him no I wasn’t going… Yup, I told the creator of the universe … NO… ?!!! Guess where I went back to? I’m on a different path now than when I was in the world. No longer self serving. My goal is to see people saved, learn more and more about how to live this life the way God intended, and teach that to others.
I used to think this music God gives me was only for young people; but after the responses that it gets from many age groups, I believe that it is for whosoever will receive it. I try to make what I do a conglomeration of jazz, r&b, funk, soul, rock, hip hop, & even a little church music in an effort to reach people. ( That IS what the Word says be all things to all men, so that some might be saved). My last CD is called THERE’S NO TIME IN HEAVEN and the new project in the works is called I.M.N.U

Malakh began seeking to please the Master in song around 2016 after years of hearing the Spirit continually commanding him to sing. So he would, but it would be while he was in congregational unison hymns, or a pre sermon hymn, and also worship among many. So the Lord united he and a very skilled vocalist/musician Felecia Bazile together in Holy Matrimony in 2003. Malakh was at the time serving/working in Word ministry as an assistant Pastor in Fort Wayne Indiana. Being very shy at stage performance of any kind he was not so much at teaching/preaching the Good News. In 2007 he was guided by the Spirit to move to Vegas where some of his family abode as he was instructed by God that He had a better ministry for him in this entertainment city. This Word was like a mystery for him and his wife for a while until his work slowed down very mysteriously, and God instructed him to help Felecia in her music project, whereby Malakh participated with her in the two songs she released. Her second release “All The Man” featuring Malakh seemed to do better in many venues than her first song “Come Back”, though “Come Back” has continued success. And it was her second song that was the Spirit’s confirmation that God had called Malakh to sing. Felecia went home to be with The Lord in 2019 with Malakh by her bedside, and he, Malakh, is continuing this work He (The Lord) has began with the two of them, to minister in song.
