US radio reluctant to play Crystal Lewis track containing Propaganda rap

AMERICAN CCM star Crystal Lewis, who recently released a remix of her 1996 hit "People Get Ready. . .Jesus Is Coming" song, has now released a new version of the track because of the demands of American Christian radio. Said Jeff McLaughlin of A-Sides Radio Promotion, "When we released Crystal's new version of 'People Get Ready' on July 17, the response was immediate and tremendous. We serviced the single to Christian CHR and urban gospel radio, but we started getting requests from stations whose formats couldn't accommodate the remix with the bridge rap from Propaganda. We talked about it and decided to do a mix without the bridge, but still include the new music by Peace 586. The A/C and INSPO stations are thrilled to now be able to add Crystal's new music into their rotation." CR
