I Thank God
FIR Gospel Music and Muse Charity Ministries Radio are in fellowship. Fir Gospel Records is an independent recording label and entity of Muse Charity Music. The main headquarters for the ministry is now located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Apostle Dr. M. J. McNeil is the founding Pastor, Chairman and CEO of the church, which is an evangelical ministry, broadcasting on WEAL 1530 am station every Monday from 12:30 - 1:00 pm. Fir Gospel was designed to provide an enriched alternative platform from independent artists seeding to be introduced to developing, promoting and presenting music to the industry in a professional manner. From my own survey, I see a need for plenty more of musical workshops on the study of the Music Industry. The first release on the FIR record label was "The Word Said So,' produced and sang by Dr. M.J. McNeil, featuring Paul Boone. He spearheaded the fledgling record label from a local to national recognition. It gained respect from mainstream recording artists such as; Luther Barnes, Paul Porter of the Christian Aires, and Leonard Williams, a former member of the Williams Brothers. The label's attraction is contemporary artists. If your music is commercial "styled", the FIR Gospel Records will put your project in that market for success. The company is now expanding it's roster with the signing of the upcoming releases from producer McNeil who shares his membership with new, anointed and talented groups such as The Mighty Gospel Singers. They have released their sensational single CD, "Hold On To Your Faith" from their forthcoming album, Hallelujah. Dr. McNeil offers his listeners contemporary flavor, yet a raw silky baritone voice, with a smooth melodious vocal style. He has captured the hearts in the past and electrified audiences with his live appearances at the Afr'am Fest, Gospel Music Expo, and the Luther Barnes fall classic showcase. He has achieved awards for career development and best songwriter of 2002. Dr. McNeil is surely becoming a household name. The release of CB, "Looking Out My Window', is available in stores now; soon to be worldwide. You are expected to hear even greater things in the future. Dr. Moses McNeil is responsible for marketing and promoting. He is also the founder of the referral service. Management of Gospel Music has an extensive background in artist development and has served on different advisory boards for the highly acclaimed R&B New York group, "Four Below Zero." He is presently serving as a publisher and marketing director for "FIR" Label. He is an overseer, artist promoter and product tracking, which ensures continued radio airplay as well as market awareness for the record company's growing roster of artists. He also assigned projects to producers, musicians, and songwriters within the company.
