Fern, of the hip-hop duo Social Club Misfits, has just released a powerful video in which he describes his story of leaving the church (he was a pastor's kid), getting caught up in drugs and eventually being sent to prison. At what he calls “possibly one of the lowest points in my life,” he was at a party—after doing cocaine—and walked out to a balcony and heard a voice telling him to “just jump.”

It was later, while behind bars on drug-related charges, that he came back to faith, and his life was changed forever when he dedicated himself to God.

Social Club Misfits will soon release their latest album The Misadventures of Fern & Marty on Capitol Records , which openly deals with themes like faith, struggles and their own life experiences.

Early this morning the singer Lauren Daigle stopped by Good Morning America to perform a couple of her songs and essentially lead worship on live television in the middle of Times Square. #NBD

It’s been a huge year for Daigle as both of the GMA hosts were quick to point out: The Grammy nominee has not one, but two chart topping albums in the past two years, is one of the fastest selling artists in Christian music in the past decade, and Billboard's Top Christian Artist of 2016. Again, no big deal.

Watch her full performance of Trust in You here:


It's the last week of the year, and just like the last several years, Us the Duo is ending it by performing an entire year's worth of pop hits in a single, three-and-a-half-minute arrangement.

Enjoy this musical look back at the year that was. Discuss
