One of the last remaining Gospel artists signed to Beyoncé’s father, former music mogul Mathew Knowles is finally free from his contract with the floundering Music World record label.

Joshua Rogers, season five winner of BET’s competition series “Sunday Best,” has been released from his contract with Knowles.

AlwaysAList.com has previously reported on the challenges Grammy nominee Brian Courtney Wilson, Dove Award winners Trin-I-Tee 5:7 and “Sunday Best” winner Le’Andria Johnson faced when they tried to severe ties with Music World. All of three artists have since been able to move forward with other companies.

Now Rogers, the youngest contestant and first male to ever win “Sunday Best,” has signed a new deal with Mixed Bag Entertainment, a boutique record label that’s already home to Christian rapper Da T.R.U.T.H. and sister trio Virtue.

“We’re excited to add a talented artist like Joshua to Mixed Bag Entertainment. He has so much to offer the gospel music community and we can’t wait to share his new music with his dedicated fans,” said Mark Mims, COO of Mixed Bag Entertainment.

The 22-year-old Greeleyville, South Carolina native released two albums on Music World; 2012’s “Well Done” and 2013’s “Unconditional.” After more than three years, Rogers is eager to record new music for his fans.

“I’m optimistic about my future with Mixed Bag Entertainment,” said Rogers. “I’m in a position where I can create the best quality of music that is meaningful, storytelling and relatable for my fans.”

Mixed Bag Entertainment has Rogers working with Grammy Award-winning producer Blac Elvis (Beyoncé/August Alsina/Usher) on his upcoming junior release.
