Ok, I know I that the posts are less frequent than they used to. Perhaps that will change in 2020. Every year since I started, I always try to post something for Black History Month. For me, this is a great way to end the month. This song called “Pray For Me” by The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar from the Black Panther soundtrack is EXCELLENT! I’m not a big rap fan but I do like this one. I also like the fact that this song has that Michael Jackson flavor in the midst of it. I’m really loving this song right about now. One of the reasons I know I love it is that every time I hear this song, I can’t get enough of it.
According to Wikipedia, “Black Panther was released in February 2018 and went on to break multiple box office records in various markets. Worldwide, it became the highest-grossing film by a black director. In its domestic market of the United States and Canada, it set the records for the highest-grossing superhero film and the highest Monday gross. Elsewhere, it became the highest-grossing film in the territories of East, West, and southern Africa and set the record for the highest opening weekend gross in East and West Africa as well as Trinidad. The records featured below were set while the film was in theaters and may not represent those currently held. All dollar amounts are presented in unadjusted U.S. dollars.
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.
“If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t
walk, then crawl, but whatever you do,
you have to keep moving forward.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.-
I’m not sure whether I posted this in past or not but as soon as I saw it, It spoke to me. . .
I used to think that the lyrics to this song was saying: “I’m not lucky in love”, but that is not at all the case. The song is titled
“I’M NOT LUCKY I’M LOVED” BY Jonathan McReynolds. I’ve been grooving to this one for a couple of months now. I hope you like it.
Whoever came up with this did a good job of putting life in perspective. As a matter of fact, I personally know two people who got off the train this month….. I hope you take time to watch this short video. This was sent to me by a special loyal reader who happens to celebrate her birthday yesterday…
The ship called “Yesterday” has already sailed…
Set your sights and total attention to this moment of today…THE PRESENT.
When I get it, I give it to you…..
This video was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae. She sure knows what I like. “How Great Thou Art” is such a GREAT SONG that I want it sung at my funeral. On this rendition “JENNIFER HUDSON JOINS PENTATONIX FOR A PERFORMANCE OF “HOW GREAT THOU ART” FROM A VERY PENTATONIX CHRISTMAS, AIRING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 27 AT 10/9c ON NBC.” Needless to say, I’ll be in front of the tv to watch this or the DVR will be running. This out to get you in the mood to share your thankfulness. Who’s got big plans for Thanksgiving? Share with me what you’ve got going on. See you soon.
For your Sunday evening wind down I’m sharing with you: Nobody Greater Remix by VaShawn Mitchell ft. Bebe Winans, Tasha Cobb. I was in the midst of doing something else this evening when I looked at my inbox and saw this that was sent to me by loyal reader A. Renae. I’ve got a project to finish but there’s NOBODY GREATER… than GOD!!! Enjoy!!!
I have a lot of songs that I love. I heard this song almost two months ago and trust me, I LOVE IT!!! I’m really surprised that I’m just posting it.
This song is extremely heart-felt and it speaks to generations…
In this life we constantly face opposition in our personal lives, in schools, on our jobs, in our homes and the list goes on and on. This song speaks to that. I love how this song is described on youtube.com
It says: “Jekalyn Carr‘s incredible song, “You Will Win” is the first single off her forthcoming live record, “One Nation, Under God.” The song is a bold statement of encouragement, and a prophetic declaration of victory over all things in God’s name.”
I can only tell you that this song means a great deal to me. You have to listen for yourself and I hope it speaks to you as it continues to speak to me. If it does, go out and buy it and support gospel music!!!
