Urban Entertainment and Culture
Heaven’s Disciples® (HD) is a multimedia-based company featuring Christian urban entertainment in music, comics, PC video games, machinima films, and books. HD has been set up as a digital company with HD Team members joining from various parts of the world. We are all united by one vision: clean, high-quality entertainment that gives glory to God and promotes the Gospel message.
We are now in the Information Age, and technology has changed how business is conducted forever. Small businesses can now compete online with large corporations. Widespread Internet access, affordable personal computers, multimedia hardware and software, music instruments, mobile devices, and electronic gadgets have reshaped the business landscape. The Internet allows for networking and collaboration between people across the globe that otherwise would not have been possible.
Secular entertainment, for the most part, has become so polluted that some of their audiences are looking for alternatives. Socially conscious and religious music has begun to gain market shares within the urban music industry. Christian films have shown to be commercial successes. The Christian comic book and video game industries remain virtually untapped, with only a few players in the mix. There is a market for Christian entertainment; and Heaven’s Disciples is here to fill in that gap. Christian urban entertainment is what the audience has been thirsting for.
Christian urban music has substance, yet does not have to compromise on quality. Even mainstream secular artists are using beats (instrumentals) produced by independent music producers with home studios. The times have changed for the music industry. Anyone that has a computer with a good sound card, USB or MIDI music instruments, broadband Internet access, and a desire to learn how to make use of all of these resources can get into the music game.
There is a share of the urban music audience that is sick and tired of being mentally, emotionally, and spiritually poisoned by urban music that promotes a culture of sin and death. It is no wonder that gun violence has broken the floodgates of morality and flooded into our schools, movie theaters, shopping malls, and other public places. Music alone is obviously not to blame for these cultural issues, but unclean entertainment does not help either.
Heaven’s Disciples Music hopes to bring the Light to shine in a world that is increasingly dimming into the darkness of love grown cold. Our music has substance; it speaks on life without sugar-coating any issues. HD Music is entertainment our audience can relate to. We hope to spread good music with a great message wherever we can.
