I wonder why the Black artists' music isn't being played on THE FISH station, yet they're part of AtlantaFest this weekend. I listen to all types of Christian music/stations, and the only exception I've heard is Mandisa's music.

Hi Pat! In addition to Mandisa, I've also heard them play Jamie-Grace, Nicole C. Mullen, and Mary Mary.
