The press release issued by his gospel record company a year ago described "a sharp dresser whose finely shaped face and prominent stature would fit perfectly on the pages of GQ magazine." That glossy image aptly described singer Michael English. At the same time, though, it strayed rather far from the point. The contemporary Christian music world isn't about slick celebrity. In theory, it's about ministry.

We take you now on a brief journey away from France 98, to an altogether more exotic locale. Our destination is Morocco, more specifically Casablanca, and more specifically still, that vast concrete bowl known as Mohamed V Stadium. It is a Wednesday night in late May and England is playing Morocco in the four-nation King Hassan II tournament.

Gospel Honors: Amy Grant is among the nominees for top Gospel Music Assn. awards, but Sandi Patti, who was voted gospel's top female vocalist for 11 straight years, didn't make the finalist cut this time around.

Grant is also up for female vocalist of the year with Cindy Morgan, Kathy Troccoli, Susan Ashton and Twila Paris.

Fans of Christian music couldn't have wished for a better event than Friday's "Young Messiah" at the Anaheim Arena. The first half of the sold-out performance was devoted to a far-ranging selection of carols and hymns. Without exception, the individual singers were impressive. Sandi Patti, perhaps the best-known of the performers, was a diva without comparison. Her passionate version of "Oh Holy Night" was the showcase moment of the evening's opening segment.

A Christian music festival next month in Burbank has a ballooning $600,000 budget and an unusual pair of novice promoters--a young Baptist of Chinese-American heritage and the owner of a computer business, who is not a believer but interested. Not that Summer Praise '94, set for Aug. 11-14 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, is a likely flop.

With more than 50 Christian artists and musical groups booked, including headliner Carman and the rock group Petra, Summer Praise '94 is being promoted heavily among evangelicals, who have turned out in respectable numbers for contemporary Christian music concerts and a recent series of crusade rallies in the Southland. But the event set for Aug. 11-14 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center is still a risk for its organizers.
