The 2012 DFW’s Gospel’s Greatest Competition was held March 3 in Dallas, the semi-finals narrowed the contestants down to 12 individuals. Many Christian artists feel that they need to go mainstream to make money and then return to their “church or Christian roots”. Minister Katina Potts, MBA, owner of In The Door Advertising & Marketing Firm and Maid 2 Serve U Cleaning Company, has a passion for giving Christian artists a platform to start off in the Gospel/Praise & Worship industry. To combine Minister Katina’s role as an artist, business owner, and charitable volunteer, she is the founder of the First Annual, DFWs Gospel’s Greatest Competition.
