B. Slade Drops New Album - Talks Music, The Church, Family and Starting Over



I got a chance to sit down one-on-one with 3 time Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer, B. Slade (Formerly known as Tonex). He just dropped his self-titled album, "B. Slade" on October 31st. This new album embodies all of the colorful characteristics that are within B. Slade, hence the name of one of his song titles, Ketchup & Mustard." This album is truly for the young and old, the hip and chic - for anyone who loves good music and wants to have a good time. 


We also talked about B. Slade's controversial interview with gospel singer, Lexi Allen, as well as his family and starting over in his career.

BET Rehearsals - Le' Andria Johnson & Tyrese Gibson Singing 'A Song For You' [VIDEO]

Studio Q captured Tyrese Gibson and Le'Andria Johnson at rehearsals for BET's Celebration of Gospel show, which aired April 7, 2013.  I was in awe sitting there watching their rehearsal.  I was blown away at these two voices. I love how BET always puts together incredible collaborations making the show exciting and unique. I could have never imagined these two together. Their voices were magic. There is nothing like turning a beautiful classic by Donny Hathaway into a love song for God. Watch the rehearsal below.

Quencie Interviews Kirk Whalum


I sat down with Jazz great, Kirk Whalum, after the screening of his DVD, "The Gospel According to Jazz Chapter IV" at the West Angeles Performing Arts Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.  This DVD musically explores the convergence of jazz and gospel infused with rhythm and blues, through a "docu-music concert" DVD and live-recorded double CD with musical messages of tribute, tragedy and triumph - musically illustrating God's radical hospitality. 

Kirk also talks about silly moments with Whitney Houston while on tour, messing up on stage, and what made him go back to music when he almost gave it up.  Check out this in-depth and funny interview that Kirk later tweeted "Best Interview Ever!"  Press Play and see why!
