National Black Gospel Sheet Music Source Is Now Available

It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore is one of the few sources of black gospel sheet music for musicians.

Landover, MD, USA — It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore (http://www.igccb.com) is now one of the largest sources of Black Gospel sheet music in the country. There are very few places where musicians can go to purchase Black Gospel sheet music because very few stores have been able to find a distribution channel that will provide the music. It’s God’s Choice has found several sources of Black Gospel and is providing it to church musicians and others nationwide and internationally.

“As a musician and a music teacher, I’m a witness to the fact that there aren’t many places where a musician can go in a store or online to find up-to-date Black Gospel sheet music. There are some songbooks that are available but not much in sheet music. It takes a lot of time learning and then teaching a new song to the church choir. It adds to the process when you have to transcribe the music first. With sheet music, the music is already written out which saves lots of time,” said Carolyn Walker, former church musician and current music buyer for the bookstore. “It’s God’s Choice is a blessing to gospel music lovers everywhere with over a thousand titles available,” said Thelma Lee.

The Black Gospel sheet music repertoire represent songs that have been sung by such famous singers as: Shirley Caesar, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Anthony Brown, William Murphy, Hezekiah Walker, Tasha Cobbs, Mississippi Mass Choir, Ricky Dillard, Martha Munizzi, Donald Lawrence, Charles Jenkins and many other well-known gospel singers, choirs and groups.

In 2002, It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and who has over 15 years of experience in this field. It’s God’s Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, tambourines, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. The store is now located at 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785 inside D’s Hairstylist. Those items that are not in the store can probably be found at the website, which is http://www.igccb.com. For further information, please call Thelma Lee at 301-499-5799.

A New Day for It’s God’s Choice: Back in Business

Officially Announcing that It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore Is Back in Business Locally and Online.

Landover, MD, USA — After about a year, It’s God’s Choice has finally officially re-opened with a new store location in Landover, Maryland. The new location is 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785, inside of D’s Hairstylists. The store still carries hard to find black gospel sheet music, songbooks and accompaniment tracks as well as church supplies, books, bibles, etc. The store takes orders for choir and pastoral robes too. “What we do not have on hand, you can probably order at our website, http://www.igccb.com,” says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer.

The storefront was closed some years ago and operated only using the website and by phone on April 1, 2013. Economy troubles have hit Christian bookstores very hard. Lots of Christian Bookstores have gone out of business even though some had been in business for over 25 years. It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore has been in business since 2002. “Unfortunately, overhead expenses increased far faster than sales. We just could not keep up,” says Carolyn Walker, Store Music Buyer. “Most of our sales are website-related even though we had an antiquated website which did not take credit cards at first,” says Thelma Lee, Store Manager.

As of April 2017, most of the store sales were generated from the new improved website and from loyal customers who phoned in their orders. For some of the churches in the local area, It’s God’s Choice staff personally delivered orders depending on the size and went out to churches to measure choirs for robes. Most of It’s God’s Choice customers receive their merchandise via the mail. The store accepts payment through the website, over the phone as well as with PayPal.

Now customers can once again come to It’s God’s Choice and enjoy the shopping experience. For those who cannot come to the store to get sheet music, they can use the website. In fact, customers can download some sheet music directly from our website. This could not be done before with the old website. “Basically everything that we sell in the store, we will have on the website. We have over 4,000 products online and are adding to the site almost daily,” states Thelma Lee.

The phone number is the same, which is 301-499-5799. The website address is still http://www.igccb.com and the email address is still christianmusicandbooks@yahoo.com.

In 2002, It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and she has over 20 years of experience in this field. It’s God’s Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. For further information regarding this move, please call 301-499-5799 and ask for Thelma, the store manager. Please note phone problems: We can’t retrieve voice mail messages left on the phone, so please call back. Thanks.

Lazy Tree Ranch Consulting With Disc Golf Professionals on Course Design

Brewpub, food, bark park, playground all compliment the setting and add to the family friendly atmosphere.

Liberty Hill, TX, USA — Lazy Tree Ranch (http://www.lazytreeranch.com), a new events venue currently under construction in west Liberty Hill near Bertram, is consulting with disc golf industry professionals on the construction of a disc golf course at the events facility. The course, yet to be named, will have challenging holes with a fair amount of obstacles (trees).

Managing partner and co-founder Carl Braun is excited about the prospects. “We were approached by the disc golf community about creating something special at Lazy Tree Ranch. The greater Austin area is the epicenter for disc golf enthusiasts worldwide. Adding disc golf to our venue along with the Hops and Grapes brewpub, bark park, soccer field and play area will definitely put us on the map.”

Professional Disc Golf Association @PDGA players Thomas Stricklin and Kristen Womac are ecstatic about the opportunity.

“Thomas and I visited Lazy Tree Ranch a couple weeks ago and were amazed with the possibilities for a professional disc golf course on the property. As PDGA amateurs, with numerous career wins we have always wanted to participate in a project of our own where we had control over the creation of a world class disc golf course. Now, having invested as co-owners we’ll have a chance to put our stamp of approval on the project along with other disc golf enthusiasts,” noted Kristen “Kiki” Womac.

@LazyTreeRanch was founded in 2016 to become the area’s largest concert and events center. The 10.6 acre track is covered in one-hundred year old oak trees and has a huge grass field (150,000 sq ft) for soccer, events, concerts and of course disc golf. The Hops and Grapes Brewpub with beer, food and wine is expected to open later this year.

PDGA disc golfers can see a video and invest in the Lazy Tree Project starting at $100 on http://www.wefunder.com/lazytreeranch in a Regulation C crowdfunding effort. Special perks for disc golf enthusiasts will be offered. Terms on the website.

Cybersecurity Keynote Speaker Edgar Perez Launches Global Cybersecurity Awareness Training Offering

Well-known keynote speaker Edgar Perez has assembled a team of cyber experts that provides essential cybersecurity awareness training to reduce the risk that employees and partners can fall victim to sophisticated phishing or social engineering methods and unknowingly serve as entry points into the firm’s information and data systems.

New York City, NY, USA — Renown cybersecurity speaker Edgar Perez is offering 360° Cybersecurity Awareness Training services for Forbes Global 2000 companies, in the wake of the large-scale WannaCry ransomware attack that leveraged malicious software stolen from the National Security Agency and exposed vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows computer systems in almost 150 countries.

Today cybersecurity is top of mind for management. That same cannot be said of all employees, who need to be appropriately trained and evaluated on a consistent basis. That is where MrEdgarPerez.com’s offering becomes critical; it offers the world’s first 360° Cybersecurity Awareness Training that effectively prepares employees at all levels of the organization, from the interns all the way up to the chairman, CEO and board members.

Any employee of major organizations can be exposed today to a sophisticated phishing attack. MrEdgarPerez.com provides a baseline analysis to understand how ready the client organization is to respond to this type of attacks; once training is complete, its readiness is benchmarked to the baseline assessment as well as competitors in the same industry.

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is a recognized futurist, keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage.

• “Your presentation was the real highlight of the Emerging Markets Investments Summit. You clearly have the connections in the industry and are very well connected.” Alex Ritson, BBC News Presenter at The Newsroom, World Business Report and Business Matters (United Kingdom)

• “I would like to show my appreciation on your willingness to share your insights about cybersecurity. We would certainly have you in mind as we move forward to deal with this very important issue.” Nik Hasyudeen, former President of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (Malaysia)

THE LARGEST RANSOMWARE CYBER ATTACK EVER

According to The New York Times, malicious software, transmitted via email and stolen from the National Security Agency, exposed vulnerabilities in computer systems in almost 150 countries in one of the largest “ransomware” attacks on record.

Cyberattackers took over the computers, encrypted the information on them and then demanded payment of $300 or more from users to unlock the devices. Some of the world’s largest institutions and government agencies have been affected, including the Russian Interior Ministry, FedEx in the United States and Britain’s National Health Service.

As people were fretting over whether to pay the digital ransom or lose data, attackers might be pocketing more than $1 billion worldwide before the deadline runs out to unlock the computers.

While most cyberattacks are inherently global, this one seems more virulent than most. It had spread to all corners of the globe, with Russia hit the worst, followed by Ukraine, India and Taiwan, said Kaspersky Lab, a Russian cybersecurity firm.
