Today YouTuber and music personality Ryan Wesley Smith announced his new show Activate with Ryan Wesley Smith. He is debuting the show's first episode, which features an in-depth interview with Dove Award winning artist Jordan Feliz, exclusively with NewReleaseToday.

In the interview, the two discuss topics such as new music, a powerful story recounting Jordan's move to Nashville, and the success of The River, his 2016 release that reached #4 on the Billboard Christian chart. "Last year was my first year of touring as a solo-artist, and after The River came out to radio, everything kinda just went to 150 million miles per hour" Feliz said during the interview.
Ryan has been a long-time music fan and rising voice in Contemporary Christian music, carrying partnerships with Capitol Records, the K-LOVE Fan Awards, and more.
