MY LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS…

The choir sang this song in church this morning. I had almost forgotten how poignant the lyrics are. I’m glad to hear this one today. It is on a cd from 1997. It is Kirk Franklin and Nu Nation.

MONDAY INSPIRATION

I posted this song about 3 years ago and for some reason this song has been on my mind for 3 days in a row. I guess that means it’s time for me to share it with you. I know I say this about a lot of songs but here we go again: I LOVE THIS SONG!!! It is Kirk Franklin and the song is called Lean On Me ft. Mary J. Blige, Bono, The Family, R. Kelly, and Crystal Lewis. This is one of those powerful, and I do mean powerful songs that will stick with you…for years! Perhaps it’s because we all need someone to lean on and also we all need to be that someone that others can lean on. We live in a society where it can be difficult to trust others for so many different reasons BUT the truth is that from time to time we all need to know that there is someone out there who has our back(s). Check out this song. It’s really awesome!!!

WANNA BE HAPPY?

Check out this music video by one of gospel music’s greats, Kirk Franklin.  This one is called “Wanna Be Happy?”  This song is on Franklin’s latest cd  “Losing My Religion”!

The song is great and the video really gives it a boos in my opinion.  It’s amazing how much life a video gives a song sometimes.  Kirk Franklin has been around the gospel music industry for many years but really struck a chord with music listeners all over the world with the  single, “Stomp”, featuring Cheryl “Salt” James (of Salt-N-Pepa).  The song was a big hit, enjoying heavy rotation on MTV and other music channels, and charting at No. 1 on the R&B Singles Airplay chart for two weeks, even making it into the Top 40. God’s Property from Kirk Franklin’s Nu Nation was No. 1 on the R&B Albums chart for five weeks, No. 3 on the Pop charts, and would go on to be certified 3x platinum. It also brought Franklin another Grammy for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album, as well as three Grammy nominations.  Enjoy… and be happy.
