International reggae singer Richie Stephens, who has touched the lives of secular music lovers with songs like "Winner," "Fight Back" (with Garnet Silk), "Trying To Get Next To You" and "She Is A Maniac" is reaping success in gospel circles with his new release titled "The Gospel Medley."

The song has gained traction on a number of gospel/reggae stations and has caught the attention of gospel show promoters in the USA who have booked him to perform on gigs in Connecticut, Boston and New York.

Popular radio host Brother Gary, whose morning show airs on WVIP, 93.5FM in the tri-state area said he played the track for an entire hour when he premiered it on his gospel program.

"We have been getting crazy calls about the song here in NY. Based on requests from listeners, I actually had to play the song for an hour when I premiered it. Richie has done great music in the past but this is the type of message music we need to be getting more of" he reiterated.

Mello FM radio host Errol Smith, who was the first to play the song for listeners in western Jamaica said, "When I played the song on my Friday morning program, the calls and text messages started less than a minute into the track...Richie has another boomshot!" Smith said he played the song three different times on that first show and the requests have not slowed.



South Florida radio host Captain Kirk of WAVS 1170 AM, has also endorsed the new song.

"Richie has found a new gear with this gospel medley. The song is timely and takes us right back to church" he reasoned.

The aftershocks of the tragic passing of the Stephens' son Demar "Copper Cat" Graham, who was murdered last year has found an artistic platform in his music—and, he's successfully parlayed his tragic woes into success in his career.

Aside from 'The Gospel Medley,' his tribute single 'Live Your Life' has topped charts in Florida, Atlanta, Canada and Jamaica and was voted 'Song of the Year' in New York last year. His follow up single 'Warrior' is also enjoying rotation on stations in Jamaica and the video has racked up an impressive 89,000 views on www.wickedhype.com.

“The songs I am now doing is motivated by a need to offer encouragement, affirmation and to reconnect with our heavenly father. After Demar's death last year and the struggles I endured, I feel the need to give God the glory and to thank him for taking me through the rough times” Stephens said.
