(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) -- iShine Records announces the upcoming release of new albums from Mission Six, The Rubyz and Jonnie & Brookie. All three releases, hitting stores on May 3rd, will be made available in a new format which iShine has dubbed MVP, standing for Music, Video, Purpose.
The MVP format is a DVD with ten new songs, ten music videos, ten video song explanations, inspiring interviews, multimedia content and an episode of the weekly TBN television series iShine KNECT which features the artist. MVP's also include a link to download the music files for use on CDs, iPods and more.
“We are excited to launch a completely new iShine product line for Christian music and media with our distribution partner Provident-Integrity Distribution,” says Brad Mathias, President of Bema Media/iShine Live. “MVP is a brand concept that iShine has created to fuse the heart of our ministry and the art of our music and creativity into an entertaining and relevant pre-teen and teen product line. MVP is designed to appeal to both the fans who love our iShine artists and the millions of Christian parents and pastors who are desperate to find wholesome Biblically-based resources they can trust.”
