Gospel Artist Tonex’ Changes His Name To Brian Slade And His Look To Go With It!!

The latest news from the gospel front is that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tonex'[/lastfm] has changed his name along with his look to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Brian Slade.[/lastfm] A move he says he has evolved to ever since coming out of the closet and revealing his attraction for men.

According to the folks at Thafeedback.com:

Wow, you know, this may not be for everyone. The church folks don’t love Brian Slade (formerly known as Tonex’) anymore due to his name change and branching off into more “alternative” waters, and regular folks may not understand the church things he is talking about and where he is coming from with his lyrical catharsis (see “Master of Zenlake”), but let me tell you this — if you love music, harmonies, rhythms, discordance, musical cacophony, high notes, range, power, runs, etc. — this is the one download you don’t want to NOT get!

Anthony Williams/Tonex’/B. Slade — whatever he may be going by, he is TALENTED. This guy is crazy skilled with his ear and his voice. And you can just enjoy the varied musical dishes that he is serving up throughout this project.

It swings from spoken word to dance to pop to just…everything. No matter what you may think of his morals, views, or otherwise, at the end of the day I love good INTERESTING music. This is a sonic field trip from start to finish and I’m all aboard for the ride. And follow him on Twitter (@BSLADE), and tell him Tha Feedback sent ya!

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words…But this video will allow you to not only see what his new look is but hear is new way of thinking to go along with it.

    Tonex and anyone else can cover up, sugar coat, and justify how they want to release those demons that are hidden on the inside, but no one forces or shoves Jesus Christ down anyone’s throat you either accept Him or reject Him. Yes there is more to you than what man/woman see, there is more to you than what your limited ability can ever imagine, but to suggest that God causes us to evolve into anything other than His (Gods) image is ludicrous. Seek Him why He can be found before the wrath of God comes upon your life, I am not judging this is the Word of God. This is what I leave to Tonex and anyone who leaves the faith and go back to a defile state: 2 Peter 2:20-22
    King James Version (KJV)
    20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (verse 22 NIV – Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,”[g] and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.” )

    Proverbs 26:11 – 11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly (lack of good sense, foolishness).

    I don’t care who disagrees with me, I know the Word of God and I stand on the Word of God and God will have His judgment in due season!!!!!!!!

      Whome are you to pass judgement on anyone, where were you in life before you recieved salvation did some one qoute gods word to you to map your life out? I think not when christ walked the earth he didnt come for the holy rollers he came for the lost and walked with the lost and save the lost, we are still babys in christ getting our diper changed and still relying on our father to feed us. do jump the gun and leave your crib because you have started to crawl, but still not walking yet you are still are relying on gods food from his table, understand I could have give you his word but I stand on his word as valid and true why use it to whip people and hender them, we all need to know christ in our own way love you sis. t

    I second what Leatha says…
    It’s amazing how people “get it twisted” when it comes to the abmoninations GOD talks about in his word.. the BIBLE!

    Funny,no one ever says JESUS. There are many GODS people talk about, and ONLY ONE JESUS who die for our sins.
    There is also only “THE” one and only GOD!

    I will pray for Tonex/B. Slade for his understanding of the TRUE WORD of GOD (YAHWEH).

    I miss Tonex. I don’t have anything negative to say about him. Period. I pray that He will repent and return to His first love. Jesus. My favorite CD by him is Oxygen. The one where he wears the cornrow braids…He talks about heaven and meeting God face to face. I hope he comes back home. God bless Him.

    Tonex has opened a door that should have been opened a long time ago. So many black men are hiding their true feelings for same sex relationships and it is unfair to black women. One thing about a man desiring another man is that “no woman will ever be able to fully satisfy him ever!!! A lot of these men enjoy sex with one another because that desire is so strong and pleasing that they cannot control it. I hope this will lead to more black men coming out and embracing their true sexual identity and thus relieving black women from having to take a chance on risky relationships with them. It will benefit everyone in the long run, especially children created out of these relationships, because if gay black men are able to freely express their desire for other men, then maybe they won’t be getting so many black women pregnant and leaving them with fatherless children. There are more men having sex with one another than can be possibly imagined and the world has to adjust to that.
