As of a few months ago Rev. Benjamin Blankenship stated on Facebook that BEN*JAM will be going into Semi-Retirement, as he is now pastoring a church and can’t do both to a full degree, & the church needs his’ attention. This was confirmed during two brief concession speeches during each of BEN*JAM’s 10 minute sets at 2015 Gospel Music Fanfair (Somerset, Ky). With that aside, Rev. Blankenship (BEN*JAM founder) also wed on Feb/27/2015 to his’ wife Victoria. With her strong music background, she has joined BEN*JAM. They plan to release several low-budget albums of some classic BEN*JAM songs, along with new works. Those albums are planned to available for online purchase & digital download.
