Stellar Awards Weekend was a big one for DC-based award-winning artist Byron Cage. On Saturday, Jan. 18 as he walked the red carpet at Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Pastor Charles Jenkins announced that he had signed Cage to his boutique label, Inspired People Music.

"Byron Cage is a genuine statesman of Gospel music,” says Pastor Jenkins. “He is an anointed artist and most importantly he is dedicated to God, his people and The Church of Jesus Christ. When this opportunity came to me it was a natural fit for our company. He is a globally revered psalmist, one of the body of Christ’s marquee worship leaders, and a proven voice committed to leading the world in worship to our God while serving beyond the stage. Our team is ecstatic to welcome him as we look forward to serving God’s people together.”

In 2010, Pastor Jenkins founded Inspired People to create a movement for God and good, through music. Its first release was "Pastor Charles Jenkins Presents Fellowship Chicago Live: The Best of Both Worlds," which was one of the highest selling and top debuting Gospel albums of 2012. On that album was the infectious international worship song “Awesome,” which was a #1 song at Gospel radio for 22 weeks and garnered numerous nominations and awards.

Byron Cage has become a household name in Gospel music after such Top-10 worship anthems as “The Presence of the Lord” and “I Will Bless the Lord.” His most recent album is 2012's "Memoirs of Worshipper." With this new deal in place, Byron Cage is expected to begin recording new music this year. Inspired People is distributed through Motown Gospel.
