*Music World Gospel is going through some significant changes these days by welcoming their new VP of artist management. Chris Ayears is the company’s new big guy on campus.

Coming from his position at Universal Music Group Distribution, Ayears will be working closely with the artist team at MWG.

“Gospel artists have a higher calling,” said Ayears. “They don’t just perform—they testify and praise God in everything they do. I feel a great sense of purpose and fulfillment when working on projects with the anointed artists at Music World Gospel.”

In his new position, he’ll guide along new artists along in their careers, leading to success and hopefully a music award.

“Chris Ayears brings both a broad range of expertise and an infectious enthusiasm for the music business to his new position in our Music World Gospel family,” said Nichelle Poindexter, Senior Vice President of Music World Gospel. “I am confident that he will be a great asset to our management team and a tremendous and supportive resource for our Music World Gospel artists.”
