Featured Artist.....18/August/2017......Michael Stosic

June 30th Michael re-released his emotionally charged adult contemporary album "Welcome Home" to great reviews after re-recording, remixing and remastering it, featuring his first single "San Juan Island." Michael's music video "San Juan Island" has been accepted for entry in the Friday Harbor Film Festival and can be seen on YouTube right now.

Michael Stosic’s musical career began back in 1986 in the Gospel music world when he recorded his first Contemporary Christian album titled “Brand New Love”, which became an instant hit with listeners on the West Coast due to play in Seattle Washington from Spirit 105.3FM KCMS Radio. Soon after the release of his debut album, Stosic’s second album “Symphony of Praise” reached listeners all across America and 118 other countries including Communist China. The success and response to Michael Stosic’s songs in the Christian music world became evident to him after the release of his third studio album “Psalms of the Heart” in 1992, where he started receiving letters and phone calls from fans across America who gave him praise for his music.

A decade after the release “Psalms of the Heart”, Stosic was invited to Zimbabwe to put on concerts for the native people; touring the land and even making a stop to sing for children at an orphanage. Upon returning back home to the United States, he was saddened to receive a call from the pastor running the orphanage informing him that 3 of the children he had interacted with have passed away from malnutrition. Being overwhelmed by the heaviness of the news, Michael decided to get more involved with the country of Zimbabwe and the children that live there. He soon teamed up with the Indiana based non-profit organization Feed The Nations and The River Christian Church in Reno, with their help he took part in getting a shipment of 286,000 meals sent to Zimbabwe for the people in need.

Since 2014 Michael has been singing every Thursday at Barbara Bennett Park for the homeless as part of a group called Loaves and Fishes who also gives them a hot meal and provides a church service for them. Michael recalls one woman in particular who sleeps under a bridge at night, "I noticed her crying when I was singing and so I went and asked her later why she was crying, and the woman replied 'your singing reminds me of being home again." Her home now is under a bridge even in the freezing cold of winter. Stosic hopes to be involved with getting a Day Center secured for these people so they will have a place to get a hot shower, a change of clothes, a meal and even an address so they can get their social security checks.

In 2016, Michael continued his musical voyage. After tracking for his 9th album, called "Welcome Home" he joined MetroSonic Studios in Brooklyn, New York. Given the task to Mix and Master the album, MetroSonic set out on capturing the true essence of the emotions Michael tries to convey through his lyrics.

Throughout the Mixing and Mastering process one thing about Michael became more and more evident: he pours all of his passion into his music. With songs about losing loved ones, the bond between his, and the horrible events that took place at the Emmanuel Methodist Church in Charleston, South Carolina; Michael has truly put all of his emotion and heart into this album.
 
In November of 2016 Michael, on the verge of another musical breakthrough with the release of his new single "I Believe" (Gospel Re-mix). Michael is joined by Grammy-Award nominated singer/songwriter Gordon Chambers on this powerful song with a stunning production by producer Pete Mignola of Metrosonic Studios in New York. I Believe debuted in the Top 20 in both Christian and Country Music Downloads and Streams from radio stations through Play MPE radio distribution and continues to be in the Top 100 Weekly Christian Songs.

2016 was a banner year for Michael releasing his emotionally charged album "Welcome Home." From this album Michael's song "Thirty-Nine Years" made the Country Bear Radio Top 100 Songs For 2016 Chart at #88. The same song made the Roots Music Report Top 150 True Country Song Chart for 2016 at #20 and Michael's album "Welcome Home" finished at #26 in the Roots Music Report Top 100 True Country Album Chart for 2016.

  

2017 has started out in a big way for Michael. In January Michael was nominated for the 2017 New Music Awards as AC New Artist of the Year by New Music Weekly Magazine out of Nashville Tennessee. He has had several hit singles for the year already including "I Believe" (Gospel Remix), "He's Alive" and most recently his new country rock single "Gospel Train" released in May of 2017. Gospel Train has been downloaded by over 1,900 radio stations world-wide.

Per Danie Cortese, Michael's promoter/publicist, here is what some of the program directors are saying about Michael's single Gospel Train.
