I was shocked today in church when they ended service with “I’ll Be There”.
It was such a paradigm shift as I stood there hearing this song that I remembered as a soul song written by Berry Gordy, Hal Davis, Bob West, and Willie Hutch. The song was recorded by The Jackson 5 and released by Motown Records on August 28, 1970 as the first single from their third album on the same date. Today, the song was also being presented as a “soul” song…but this was soooooooo… different. I could easily now hear this song being played on any gospel station. I looked at the lyrics in ways that I never had before and from this day forward, I will always remember this as a “soul” song as it really touched my soul today. Check out the lyrics as you listen to this classic and let me know what you think.



This computer is acting up but I didn’t want to let the day go by without acknowledging the 10th anniversary of the death of one of the best entertainers to ever grace this planet… Watch—-as Michael Jackson’s legacy continues…………………………


I don’t know how I ended up watching this clip but as soon as I did, I could not look away. If you don’t want to cry, don’t watch this one. This is a story about ABUSE, SURVIVAL, HEROISM, and STRENGTH . I don’t want to give away too much in this writing because I want you to watch the clip. I’ve never been in an abusive situation and certainly not a situation such as this but it really hurt nonetheless. The kids in this story are extremely resilient yet what they’ve gone through will always be with them. THE OPRAH SHOW has evolved over the years but she has always been educational, cutting-edge, poignant, and emotional. Watch this clip and let me know what you think.


Kelontae Gavin’s “No Ordinary Worship” has been my go to song for the last couple of months. I remember when I first heard this song, I was driving along and had to know who was singing this one. This is my first post of the year and I hope it touches the hearts of any/all that happen upon it. I can’t predict the future but I certainly am expecting a GREAT 2019. I will continue giving praise to GOD. THIS AIN’T NO ORDINARY WORSHIP!!!


This is one of my favorite new songs!!! The message is awesome and the groove is like I like as well. This song “FAVOR OF GOD” (LYRIC VIDEO) is by JAMES FORTUNE & FIYA ft. ZARCARDI CORTEZ. Some time ago, I said that I would never feature another video by Fortune due to some situations in his personal life. BUT… as you can see, that was then and this is now. It’s only a fool that never changes his mind. I hope you enjoy this song and enjoy the remainder of your day. Please say a prayer for all of those who are experiencing adverse conditions due to hurricane Florence.
