Juanita Bynum: Popular Prophetess Partners With Beyonce’s Dad
BV Buzz broke news via Twitter on Sunday, May 9 that the renowned preacher/singer had entered an agreement with Knowles’ Music World Entertainment for a multilayered deal.
Official news that 51-year-old Christian personality was confirmed by Music World rep Gwendolyn Quinn on Monday, May 10.”Dr. Juanita Bynum has built a solid foundation with her ministry leading the way to her music and literary accomplishments. Her global brand potential is extraordinary,” said Knowles, President and C.E.O. of Music World Entertainment. “She exemplifies the strength of human character and has the passion and talent to inspire.”
Though she just released her eighth CD, ‘More Passion, on her own label, Flow Records on May 4; Bynum is slated to drop a new CD called ‘The Diary of Juanita Bynum’ later this year on her new venture Son Flower Records, in partnership with Knowles’ Spirit Rising label.
“I am elated about what the ingeniousness of Mathew Knowles mixed with the gift that God has given me is about to produce,” said Bynum. “It’s a new day, I’m a new Juanita Bynum and I’m ready for this new start.”
Bynum was once best known as the author of the bestselling book and sermon ‘No More Sheets’ and as one of the most sought-after evangelists on the Christian speaking circuit. Her success was overshadowed by her 2007 highly-publicized domestic dispute with then-husband Bishop Thomas Weeks.
The two have since divorced and Bynum went on a whirlwind media campaign after the ordeal and touted herself as the “new face of domestic violence.”
