Sunday Best: Geoffrey Golden Is Sunday Best!


Geoffrey Golden once pretended to direct gospel choirs on his television screen, and now he is officially jump starting his gospel music career as the season 7 winner of BET Network’s “Sunday Best.”
Golden, 20, has not only won the coveted “Sunday Best” winner title, but a cash prize and recording contract with Kirk Franklin’s Fo Yo Soul / RCA Record label. The Cleveland, Ohio native told The Christian Post that winning the competition has brought him from a place of expectation to reality.
“I know God told me that there was a thing that he would do in my life and he was going to use me..some of those things that He’s placed in me would go out into the world,” Golden told The Christian Post. “Now I’m really walking in the promise of the thing that He said He would do. So moving from promise to performance is what I think it (means) to me more than anything.”





A music publisher (or publishing company) is responsible for ensuring the songwriters and composers receive payment when their compositions are used commercially. Through an agreement called a publishing contract, a songwriter or composer “assigns” the copyright of their composition to a publishing company. In return, the company licenses compositions, helps monitor where compositions are used, collects royalties and distributes them to the composers. They also secure commissions for music and promote existing compositions to recording artists, film and television.[1]

The copyrights owned and administered by publishing companies are one of the most important forms of intellectual property in the music industry. (The other is the copyright on a master recording which is typically owned by a record company.) Publishing companies play a central role in managing this vital asset.
