Television will get a new taste of Gospel this Fall. Congo TV Network begins filming a new Christian Reality Show in late October. Although the show is still untitled, it will feature popular Gospel Choir Director Royce Mosley in an exciting new series featuring Church Choirs, Christian Comedy, and good ole’ Pot Lucks.
Mosely will tour eight churches around the country to conduct an intense choir rehearsal with their church’s choir. With his unique teaching abilities, he will enhance the choir and show them a few new tricks from an old book. The rehearsals will feature surprise appearances from popular Gospel Artists as well.
Mosley is no stranger to Gospel Music. He has directed choirs all over America, worked as a Vocal Trainer for Gospel and R&B artists, and was the Minister of Music for Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Nashville, TN for several years under Bishop Joseph Walker (now the presiding Bishop for the Full Gospel Baptist International Fellowship).
Each episode will feature a Pot Luck Fellowship after the rehearsal where members of the church will get a chance to showcase their best dishes. The Pastor of the church will showcase the church’s outreach programs. Some shows will even feature the church’s youth step teams.
“People have forgotten the magic of a real church family. We hear so much negativity about churches, we wanted to produce a show that will exhibit what real church is all about,” said Ro Wright, Show Creator and Co-Founder of Eagle View Media Company. He explained, “real church fellowship is about family, people lifting each other, being effective in the community… providing a platform to nourish families. It’s laughter, inspiration, and on the right Sunday you will find the best food in the city right in the Family & Life Center at the church. The old church called it The Fellowship Hall.”
Comedian Shervey Carter has been slated to bring loads of laughter to each episode. “Shervey is one of those comedians who understand the importance of the church system. We wanted someone who could balance comedy with Faith. He is a rising star and he will bring a special light to this project,” said Gerald Wright, Co-Founder of Eagle View Media Company, which owns Congo TV Network.
“One thing I am excited about is how the show will be able to show the truth about the Faith Based Community. We’ll get to show how churches has rehabilitated lives and rejuvenated their communities,” said Mosley.
Another key highlight to this show is the theme song associated with it. “Chosen Generation” was used in a popular Baptist Youth Encampment held at Southern University for more than 15 years. “It has become sort of a theme song for churches along the Gulfcoast,” said Wright. “More than 100,000 kids grew up singing this song and we are glad to have been given clearance to use it as the theme song for the show.
Wright petitioned music producer, Tashakka Stills, to revamp the old song and give it a contemporary vibe. Brad Bradford, a well known Choir Director in New Orleans, pulled a few praise and worship leaders from New Orleans to rebirth the song for the show. Sean Keys, popular producer, invited the singers to his studio to bring the concept together. “We have great expectations for this show and we hope it ignites fellowship in every community.”
Filming for this project is slated to begin late October. Churches that would like to be featured should apply after receiving approval from the Pastor of the church. The network is asking members to introduce the opportunity to the Pastor. After the Pastor approves then elect one person to apply on behalf of the church.
