G.L.O Releases New Visual For No. 1 ‘Ignited’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 4, 2021) – A sizzling hot video debuts today for the No. 1 single, “Ignited,” from G.L.O, which stands for God’s Love Only. The video can be viewed on YouTube and Facebook.

The high energy video features the artist and a group of dancers as G.L.O performs the single based on Matthew 5:15: “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.”

“I know,” says G.L.O, “that, as a Christ follower, many will try to extinguish the flame of Christ within, but as Children of God we must continue to persevere and shine and remain ‘Ignited’ in this dark world.

“Ignited, written by the artist and produced by Alex “Ace 1” Espinoza, is the fifth consecutive No. 1 single for G.L.O, debuting in the top slot when it dropped at Christian Hip Hop, Christian Rhythmic and Christian Hot AC/CHR-formatted radio outlets. “Ignited” also has claimed the No. 3 spot at CRC Monthly.

Prior radio hits include:
“Ephphatha,” which debuted at No. 1 on CRC Weekly, ranked No. 5 at CRC Monthly and No. 9 at CRC Quarterly;
“Closer,” No. 1 single at CRC Weekly and CRC Monthly, as well as hitting No. 2 at CRC Quarterly, and ranking No. 10 on the CRC Yearly chart;
“No Weapon Formed, topping the charts at No. 1 at CRC Weekly, No. 2 at CRC Monthly and No. 6 at CRC Quarterly; and
“Reborn,” released in 2019 as the debut single from G.L.O’s album of the same name, hitting No. 1 at CRC Weekly, No. 2 at CRC Monthly and No. 7 at CRC Quarterly.

Music has been important to G.L.O since she was young. When she received Jesus Christ as her Savior in 1998, she asked God to reveal her purpose. As she began writing songs, the songwriter noticed that none of her songs glorified God.

“That all changed one fateful day,” G.L.O says, “when God had a Word for me in Bible Study: ‘You can’t have one foot in the world and one foot out.’ After receiving that message, it was the breakthrough I needed. I haven’t looked back.”

With a ministry that knows no boundaries and one that reaches the young and the old, G.L.O’s prayer is that her music can break down the misconception that rap is only of the world.

G.L.O has appeared on local TBN networks as well as UK London International TBN. She has performed onstage at the Gospel Superfest where she shared the platform with artists such as Deitrick Haddon, Lecrae, Dorinda Clark-Cole, and others. She has enjoyed radio airplay from U.S. and international radio outlets.

In June 2019, G.L.O signed with McLaughlin Music Group for management.

Dante Bowe’s “Joyful” Makes History Reaching Both Billboard Top 30 Christian AC & Gospel Radio Charts

They say that there’s a first time for everything.  We’re not sure who “They” are – but they are right! For a rare time in modern history, one single version of a song has bridged the gap, blurred the lines, and brought unity between the Gospel and CCM formats.  That bridge builder is “Joyful” by Dante Bowe of Bethel Music.  “Joyful” is the first single to have the same version of the song to appear on both of Billboard’s Top 30 National Airplay Charts – Gospel at #23 and CCM at #14, and we’re overjoyed, to say the least (pun intended).

There has been a unified cry over the past couple of years within our God-blessed country for true equality and justice among all races, sexes, and classes. Not only that, but we encountered a global pandemic that worked hard at destroying hope in everyone’s lives. This left most Americans in a continued state of desperation and exasperation and was the exact climate when Dante’s “Joyful” hit the airwaves.

“Joyful” certainly hasn’t solved these problems, but it represents the anthem of those who are carrying the torch of change in their hearts and believe that better days start with making today better by choosing to be “Joyful” in it.

The appearance of “Joyful” on both Top 30 Billboard Charts has certainly not come without the hard work of a faithful and committed team of multiple notable promotion teams. Promotional teams for this song include Chris Hauser, 55 Promotions, Boxer Poet, Revival Music Company and their in-house team of promoters – Push It Marketing & Promotions, and The Bellamy Group.
