Washington, D.C. –In order to be successful in today’s musical landscape, gospel artists need to have the necessary tools to navigate the industry.  The Independent Gospel Artist Alliance, founded by Stellar Award Winner Phillip Carter and Stellar Award Nominee Earl Bynum (in photo), was started to empower, educate and motivate gospel artists. 

The highlight of the alliance is its annual Independent Gospel Artists Alliance Conference.  This year’s event will take place from July 19 – 21, 2012 at The Mount located at 215 Las Gaviotas Blvd. in Chesapeake, VA.
