Bonita Burney Simmons the spiritual thermostat has offered a plea to and for America to offer God his due in 2020 with the heartfelt lament America Bless God. America Bless God was birthed out of the need to be transparent and forgiven by God for being selfish. As individuals, as a nation, we America have been blessed by God. So, now, it is time for us, America to Bless God! My prayer is that this song brings an awareness to the hearers that we’ve been spoiled and that more than ever it is time for us to give God what He is so deserving of praise, honor and glory.

II Chronicles 7:14 is our template and prayer to bring healing to America. When we repent, God promised to forgive our sins and heal our lands.

Bonita’s Singing Career…

At age 12, she started her own gospel singing group, a trio called “Tried by Fire.” Determined and focused, Bonita thrived in her role as band leader and demonstrated her entrepreneurial skills at a very young age. Bonita would open up for all the national recording gospel artists who came to town like Shirley Caesar, John P. Kee, Luther Barnes, The Winans, The Williams Brothers and many others. Bonita has appeared and won first place on numerous occasions at the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York City. By the time she reached high school, she was already considered a professional singer! Today, Bonita is enjoying the flexibility of being an independent recording artist. Her talent is in high demand, as she is frequently requested to sing at venues and events throughout Eastern North Carolina!

She also in July of 2017 was nominated and recognized as the winner in the Independent Gospel Artist category of Traditional Vocalist of the Year from the Radio Alliance Awards also located in Jacksonville, Florida. 

Although she’s experienced many tribulations, Bonita’s life lessons are part of her unique tapestry that enables her to relate to people who are hurting. One of her biggest accomplishments is her outreach work with those who are incarcerated, sharing God’s love through song. Indeed, Bonita has defined her own success, choosing to embrace an obedient lifestyle according to God’s will for her life and career. She simply allows God to do the navigation and depends solely on Him to direct her career path- living by her motto, “If I make the way, then I’ll have to pay the way. But if I allow HIM to make the way, he’ll pay the way!”

She is a powerhouse vocalist and one of few ‘new school’ class of female vocalists who can capture the definitive essence of traditional gospel and “church” music at its best.  As soon as a single note is dropped from her mic, you know you are in for a musical experience in its most dynamic and pristine form.  MONICA LISA STEVENSON is that vocalist who provides a commanding presentation and a life impacting spiritual encounter through every song she sings. 

Monica Lisa was born into a talented family of singers. The eldest of six children, she and her siblings were raised in Wetumpka, Alabama, where they were inspired, encouraged, and trained by their parents, the late George Bowen and Pearlie Ellis. She began to minister in song and organized Lisa Stevenson & Company in 1997 shortly after becoming a licensed minister of the gospel.

Her true joy is just to be able to sing before audiences, but Monica Lisa has a litany of achievements and experiences that have contributed to her thriving and passion-filled music ministry.

Monica Lisa has delivered two highly acclaimed and award winning projects.  Her freshman album FINALLY…IN GOD’S TIME (2009) earned her two Stellar Award Nominations for Best New Artist and Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year.  Her next album LIVE IN ATLANTA (2013) garnered the songstress the 2014 Gospel Blue Mic Award for Artist Of The Year and a 2015 Stellar Award Nomination.  Monica Lisa has also captured two Atlanta Gospel Choice Awards for Best Female Artist in 2008 and Song of the Year in 2009.

Monica Lisa’s numerous national appearances include BET’s Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel, Atlanta Live TV, Babbie’s House TV, The Sweet Auburn Festival, The Rhythm of Gospel Awards, The Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship Conference and The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International Conferences. She was also cast for an appearance in the Tyler Perry movie Madea’s Big Happy Family and TV series The Have and The Have Nots.  Her touring territory expanded to international status when the singer toured throughout Switzerland and Italy in 2011.

Her hard working drive and stamina has enabled her to sing with gospel greats –  the legendary Caravans, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Kathy Taylor, Bishop Paul Morton, Jason Crabb, Erica Campbell, The Williams Brothers, Pastor Marvin Sapp, J Moss, Tasha Cobbs and Pastor William Murphy.  An esteemed milestone for Monica Lisa was to record “Lord Keep Me” (Day by Day), made a classic by the legendary Caravan’s founder the late Dr. Albertina Walker and to minister the song at the celebrated gospel queen’s home going service. 

Pastor Timothy R. Newton Sr. is a native of Hamlet, North Carolina. He is the youngest of eight children born to Bishop Artis C. & Mrs. Dorothy H. Newton. Pastor Tim, as he is affectionately known to many, began his preaching ministry in 2002, following the horrific death of his brother and best friend, Mr. Travis J. Newton, Sr. in

2001. This tragic, life – changing event caused Pastor Tim to surrender and submit to the will of God for his life. He has a life changing testimony of how he came to understand that God had chosen and called him to minister to a generation of people that were gifted and talented, but not operating in their call. The mandate on his

Life has opened ministering doors for him throughout the east coast. 

Ministry doors opened in 2012, allowing Pastor Tim to release a sound word to reach the masses during an interview on The Word Network in Durham, North Carolina. He’s ministered several times on The Word Network, hosted by Bishop George G. Bloomer, since April 2012.

The prophetic and healing anointing entrusted unto Pastor Tim God has brought release, restoration and deliverance to many. He has received numerous ministry certifications in his desire to enhance his biblical studies. 

He’s the proud father of one son, Timothy Newton, Jr., who accompanies his father during his ministry travels. Pastor Newton is the senior Pastor of The Flowing Place Ministries; currently located on 110 Bible Way Church Road; Rockingham, North Carolina. Many gather from far and near to witness a demonstrated word of salvation, faith, hope and power. The Flowing Place (formerly Bible Way Ministries) stands firm in its mission to empower, edify and equip the whole man to live Christ-centered lives.

Pastor Newton is a father, vocalist, disciple and ever-learning student of the Word. God has mandated this anointed vessel to reach masses with a word of empowerment. Pastor Tim is also the author of a manual entitled “Misconceptions of Warfare.” He has recently released an empowering book entitled “Power Words.” Pastor Tim will also be releasing LeaderTips (a guide for senior and secondary leaders) and Pastoring with Passion (a guide to restoring pastor’s passion to pastor) in the near future. As he travels the world, Pastor Tim accepts the God given mandate to “Impact Lives, Empower Generations.”
