Why Didn't Tasha Cobbs Show Up For The Woman of Gospel Event In Toronto Canada Last Night? Was It About The Money?

Reader, there are two sides to every story. People have heard one side and have become the judge, the jury, and the executioner. You cannot come to a conclusion just based off of one party allegedly telling the truth-that is nonsense. 


Anyhow rumors are being put forth on social media that Tasha Cobb refused to perform last night in Canada, because the venue hosting the event didn't have all her money.   What is in the dark, always comes to light. 



Y'all Are Really Mad About Tasha Cobb Having A 20K Honorarium For A 60 Minute Concert?

 
 
 

Reader, once again social media is having one of their many hissy fits. This time, it's over Grammy Award Winning Artist Tasha Cobb.  I just don't get it and then preachers are getting in on the bashing also.  I'm surprised about this.  Not considering that she's not just a church's worship leader she's an artist with a brand and along with a brand comes a team. If promoted correctly and worked you won't even have to come out pocket at all but hey, and for those who are just starting blazing the trail need to be real careful with commentary because you'll want someone to support your brand should you be exalted to the level that God has entrusted to her, I'm just saying. Reader for a Grammy Award winning artists, is this to much for 60 minutes? Mine you, Tasha Cobb is not a local artist looking for exposure, she's an international artist.


Facebook:
So I had a conference call with Tasha Cobbs' booking agent and she told me that her fee for a 60-minute performance in Montgomery would be $20,000 PLUS her rider (approx $3,000)... Ma'am for 20k you better LITERALLY Break EVERY damn Chain....the chains of slavery, the chains of death, Harry Houdini's chains, chain letters, The sound of the men working on the chain gang, Fake gold chains, the food chain, bicycle chains, Eric B and Rakim's rope chains, Areatha Franklin's Chain Chain Chain....Chain of Fools...I MEAN EVERY DAMN CHAIN!!..‪#‎NoThanks‬....‪#‎I‬'llPass

 Thoughts??

  1. I was shocked when I found this info out. With all the expenses, she probably only takes 10K home. I would negotiate that 20K.

  2. Ms. Ann my thing is folks would pay over $50k for any rapper or r&b singer? Everyone wants to complain about a gospel singers price which is much lower and they are using there voices to bring souls to the kingdom which is priceless...food for thought...trust im cheap I would rather give my money to help someone out versus a concert anyway.

  3. Ann things like this truly upset me... People don't get it, if you can't afford someone then don't book them.... $20,000 is nothing!!!! This is what she does for a living!! People love to take advantage of folks gifts just because they are "Doing it for Jesus"... It's just ridiculous and it shows the mindset of how we think as believers ... This is a huge part of the problem... And I will go out on a limb and say... It's much more apparent in the black church.. Not all but most.. The issue is more about "Can u afford it?, if not then move along... Putting her biz in the street tho?" ..We spend thousands of dollars buying "Secular" Artists music and going to there concerts.. And heck if we wants them at our event .. We would sell steal and borrow to pay whatever there fee is to get them there... It's just silly ... And I think it's a slap in the face to every artist putting there heart and soul on the line every night to bring folks an amazing show... Because Lord forbid they have a bad night.

  4. Alright already!!!!! GEESH, Tasha Cobbs cost 20K. Everybody knows now. If you can afford it cool, and if you can't get someone else that you can. No big deal! Now can we get back to what's important like Donald Trump winning all these states. Y'all worried about the wrong thing meanwhile TRUMP is getting ready to send us back on boats.

    1. Haha, I can't help but laugh at the Tasha Cobbs post! She'll want $20k for a 60-minute show, but pay local musicians $150 for rehearsals and the performance... Bless her heart.

    2. Sorry but not with that. I understand this is how she and others make their living, but poor people buy the tickets. I'm not spending my money on that kind of thing. $20,000 is a lot of money so no my money stays in my pocket and I have a private concert with youtube.

  6. Here's my take on what is a Catch-22 situation. First, You got a supposed Christian Singer singing like an R&B singer being paid by the world to uncover her talent. You see …the world loves good talent, but hate Jesus. They make mockery of anything Christian, and delve to cheapen it as a slap in the face of God. Keep in mind though that the LORD will get his honor (not that He needs it), in that every knee shall bow and ever tongue confess that indeed HE IS LORD. Then you got a “gospel” singer, singing about Jesus but doing so in a worldly way. The Lord says you can’t mix the two. You can’t blend in lyrics about the glories of His Kingdom with a style of music that is sensual. This then becomes a dichotomy, and maybe the LORD’s judgment is for her to reap what she sows, disobeying Him reaching through the flesh, while those who hates Christ cheapens her talent by giving her payment that does not measure up to her talent.

    This whole black gospel music thing is a trap. Some cross over to do solely secular to get paid. Others dibble and dabble in both so they can earn some cash flow. Some do only gospel milking the saints to hear them perform and entertain, getting their bank that way. I mean...what's a "black gospel artist" to do?...

    1. I'm so sad about this conversation about Tasha Cobbs and her fees.
      I will only say this. It costs to run ANY business. She is a business, point blank.

  7. I keep saying that gospel music artists are entertainers, not ministers. That's why I rarely buy their music. So with that in mind, I'm not shocked or surprised at their fees. True worship music is free and can be heard on Sunday mornings in the church house.

  9. OOOKay. Let me get in on this. lol. Been playing keyboards/piano for yrs for the Lord. Sure, I'll take a love offering praise God and I'll give my offering of it to the church. It's ranged from $75-$300 a Sunday. I ain't tripping over how much. I've backed up, at times when ask, the "big time" gospel singers when their keyboardist wasn't able to play. FOLKS.. what goes on behind closed doors is ridiculous. Don't worship these singers ya'll. I had the opportunity to sign the dotted line with record labels. When you do this, it's a deal with satan. Promise. You have to do what they say. Period. If you sign with the same label as Lady Gaga, 2 Chains, Kanye West(Or perform with him, LOL), you can't say nothing about the vile words that comes out of these folks mouth. Why? You're in joint agreement with them of the company for it to be successful as a whole. Whether is be Sony, Atlantic Records or Epic.
    Here's my issue. With all this money the church has, why can't we create our own record labels and join forces together and distances ourselves from the world's labels? MONEY AND GREED. Not even the church would do this. Gospels singers feel they have to be valid by rubbing shoulders with the so-called celebrity artist than being concerned about folks going to hell. Gospel music has been changed into total entertainment purposes because the same emotional feeling one gets at a Chris Brown concert is that same feeling folks get at a Tasha Cobbs or Marvin Sapp concert because, "CHILD THEY SONG MY SONG GURL!" It's ridiculous ya'll. The love of money has corrupted this whole thing and I'm happy just using my gift for the Lord at local churches and not even trying to get with these big time gospel singers like I once was eager to do. Forgive us Lord.

  10. 20k for her is a bit much. When Marvin Sapp was the biggest name in gospel a few years back, he charged us 10k for 60 minutes... He has a lot more hits too...

  11. First and foremost, this is NOT what she charges. The fact that people and especially "Christians" are jumping all over this as if this is fact based only on what some guy who they have never met said on social media is ridiculous.

  12. Marvin Sapp has to take what he can get. No one is singing "Never Would Have Made It" for praise and worship every Sunday. Marvin Sapp does t draw the Hong crowd. Instead, he is going to draw more of a middle age churched crowd.

    Tasha is young, everyone does her songs on Sunday morning, and it's nothing for her to pull a crowd of 3,000 from all age categories.

    The formula is simple:
    $10 ticket per person
    3,000 people show up
    $30,000 is made
    Tasha gets her 23k and church pockets 7k
    3000 people get a 60 minute concert

    When you look at it that way, it's not really a bad deal. Advertise it right, and you'll get folk from bordering states driving in for the concert. What's 3000 in a day when churches boast 20,000 members in 5 locations.

    3. There are a lot of miscellaneous expenses that go into the show. If her fee is $20k that is her performance fee. That covers nothing else. If it's a church you have to cross your fingers that the sound system is top notch or else you looking at another $3k for sound. You have to supply backline (instruments) and that can run you another $2k. Also you have to pay for flights for her and her team with will run you another $3-4K if she's traveling with say 10 people. You have to pay for transportation, another $500. You have to pay for green room $500+. Then Hotel cost, let's say 5 rooms, another $700 depending on the hotel. You have to pay for advertising. If you're in a big city it could easily run you $3-5k for radio ads, flyers, etc. So right there is easily another $12-15k in additional expenses you have to pay to put on the concert. And let's not forget the cost to rent the venue which will vary by church but expect a couple thousand there too.

  14. Well she obviously is getting it! It her way of making a living, so you can chose to invite her and pay yhe money or leave her at home! Mow as it relates to her paying lical musicians $150 for rehearsals and performances, thats on the musicians if they accepted that! If you value your gift like that tell her no thank you!
