EVEN ME…

This is a song that I’m currently grooving to. The song is called “Even Me” and it is by Darlene McCoy who is a radio personality for Radio One. Her format is gospel and she can be found in the evenings on the air. I usually listen to her on 102.5 FM in the Atlanta area. Tell me what you think about this tune…

WHITNEY HOUSTON DOCUMENTARY…WOW!!!

I saw this trailer yesterday and I can’t wait until the movie comes out. There is so much that the general public does not know about this iconic figure and so much that we will never know. When…will we let this woman REST IN PEACE. I still can’t wait to see the movie.

WHITNEY HOUSTON RE-BORN

I heard this lady on Showtime At The Apollo and trust me she sounds a lot like the late Whitney Houston. Her name is Glennis Grace. According to networth.com:
“Glennis Grace (born as Glenda Hulita Elisabeth Batta, 19 June 1978, Amsterdam) is a singer from the Netherlands who in 2005 won the national selection in the Netherlands for the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 for the nation. Grace’s song was the ballad My Impossible Dream, but she did not advance the semifinal. She was discovered after she won a Dutch TV talent show where she performed Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time”. In April 2011 she reached the top of the Dutch singles chart with a rendition of “Afscheid”, originally made famous by Volumia!”

OH HOW WONDROUS…

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!!!
This is such a great song. I just had to share it with you today. This of course is another one of my favorites that I’ve been listening to for years. It is called “Oh How Wondrous” and sung by John P. Kee & The New Life Community Choir. Check out the lyrics below:

Oh how wondrous is the name of the Lord,
how we worship, His name is to be adored.
God our Maker endured pain, guilt, and strife,
so that we might access our eternal life.

We offer sincere praise,
We stand and bless Your holy name.
Your blood has loosed all the chains,
all men shall proclaim, there’s power in Your name.

How we love You,
Your name is so sweet,
Your joy is complete.

We love You,
we reverence Your face
in this holy place.

Jehovah Jireh, He who provides for us all.
Our Strong Tower, who hears and moves when we call.
Elohim, He created us from the dust.
Jehovah Shammah, the Lord is present with us.

We offer sincere praise,
We stand and bless Your holy name.
Your blood has loosed all the chains,
all men shall proclaim, there’s power in Your name.

How we love You,
Your name is so sweet,
Your joy is complete.

Tenor:
Oh how wondrous is the name of the Lord.

Alto:
Oh how wondrous is the name of the Lord.

Soprano:
So sweet is the name of the Lord.

HALLELUJAH, SALVATION, AND GLORY…

Revelation 19:1
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God.

I hadn’t heard this song in a while and then I heard it on the radio this past Friday. OMG!!! This is most definitely one of my favorites. It’s something about the lyrics and the way the song is sung that seems to pull the entire Christian experience all together. I hope you take time to listen………….
I didn’t get a chance to go to church today but this “word” certainly ministered to me today. Whether you went today or not, I hope it will minister to you as well.  The song is being sung by  the United Voices Choir with Stephen Hurd.

WORDUP WEDNESDAY

Surprise!!! I know some of you can’t believe that I’m posting two days in a row. As busy as I am of late, I’m surprised as well. But… I’m going to try to post more this year. I just have to find the time.
I wanted to share this *NEW* song by Marvin Winans – Draw me Close to You / Thy Will be Done. Loyal reader A Renae sent this one to me and I’m definitely glad she did. Very nice song!
Also…….HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

BLACK HISTORY MONTH: A POIGNANT LOOK AT THE WHITNEY PLANTATION

This… blew me away. This slave plantation museum about an hour outside of New Orleans confronts a poignant look at a past that is not so far in the past. Many want to look pass this part history and treat it as if it did not exist… In case you haven’t seen or heard of the Whitney Plantation Museum, I want you to see that: “The first museum in America dedicated entirely to slavery opened a few months ago in Wallace, Louisiana. Michelle Miller visits the museum and found a surprising history, not only about the plantation, but her own family.” In my own lifetime, and I’m not even 60 years old yet, I’ve seen in person a “white only” water fountain. I did not go to an integrated school until I was in the 5th grade and I used to work at a movie theatre that as a child, all of the black people had to sit in the balcony. I can’t even imagine the experiences of my elders. Thank God I did not have to experience some of the things that they did. I’m not sure that I would have survived.

MEMORABLE MLK, JR QUOTES

I won’t let the day pass without acknowledging MLK, Jr and his major contributions to the Civil Rights struggle. Hopefully I’ll get a chance today to post more but at least this is my initial offering.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a leader who, like Mahatma Gandhi before him, and Nelson Mandela after him, showed us the way from weakness and division to strength in unity.

He challenged and inspired us to reach deeper within ourselves, despite ourselves, for our best, which sometimes is, simply, better than yesterday. His power endures because it’s rooted in the courage to hold hope and faith in each others potential: “knowing” we can do it… we can be better every day, each in our own way.

On this, the U.S. holiday celebrating his life and legacy, I present you with ten of his extraordinary thoughts on leadership:
•”A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

•”I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”

•”All men are caught…
