This video extra from the Independent Lens documentary The New Black gives us an intimate look at how singer Tonéx, a.k.a. Slade, shifted gears in his life as a successful gospel artist when he revealed he was gay.
The news set off a storm of controversy within the gospel music world and the church, but won him new fans as well.
Salutations 2 all, After long contemplation and much financial & emotional hardship I have decided that Tonex needs go on hiatus from the music industry.
I have tried very hard to endure all that I can from being misunderstood to being down right lied on and I don’t physically or emotionally have the capacity to continue on anymore under the current circumstances.
My record Label ZLG (Zomba Label Group) has repeatedly ignored my requests for help and they just don’t get me as an artist. Honestly I don’t feel that I fit into anyone’s catergory but my own, but in a world that’s filled with labels, sections & catergories people can’t function if they can’t put you in a certain box. I cried and cried and cried last night to God for help because I can’t go any further.
The label doesn’t give me advances because my contract a is real wack. I haven’t done everything right, but what I ‘ve been expericencing here recently is wrong. I don’t wanna hear any scriptures and I don’t wanna hear any Oh, God’s gonna bring you out type stuff right now. I’ve still been pastoring and that’s been the only thing that really brings me joy, to see others blessed.
But now I’m at the point where I’m drained and I don’t have the physical energy anymore to continue on.
God gives me the strength to deliever a rhema word every week for others but it’s crazy when you still need one yourself. I’m wide open and now I’m like y’all take a hit cuz I ain’t got nothing to lose.
I see so many Gospel Artist that literally HATE each other and when I see them celebrated like oh God is so pleased with them and I’m just being me and now I’m the ANTI CHRIST ? I’ve lost everything so you really can’t hurt me anymore than I’ve already been hurt. So many people call themselves ministers but they don’t minister they COMPETE.
I’m gonna tell y’all the truth what you see on TV ain’t real….. Until God sends me a word through somebody for real that don’t care that I’m Tonex but cares about the man of God who really needs the love of Christ to be demonstrated through a human being , I don’t wanna hear it.
because if you’re “real” then you’re a sinner, if you’re real then you’re out of the will of God. This is not a ploy to get you to worry about me or start more rumors; so let’s clarify something right now…..tonex is IS NOT leaving “Gospel” to go sing the dreaded “R&B”. And in my pursuit of the real Jesus I leave your fictious, vindictive country club and cancel my membership to the industry and denounce it. Whatever my mission is for God I wanna do it with the right heart and the right spirit.
