#NowPlaying: Luther Barnes: “God’s Grace”

Luther-Barnes-God's-Grace

Now Playing: Luther Barnes: “God’s Grace”. The song is the first single from gospel artist Rev. Luther Barnes’ new project, The Favor Of God, which is set for release in September 2016 on Shanachie Entertainment/

About the project [from the press release]:

“Although it has taken a minute for me to bring forth another musical project,” Rev. Barnes says, “I believe the delayed process was nothing less than God’s perfect will. The birthing of our church, Restoration Worship Center, has brought with it new life and purpose, which is extremely evident in these songs. The Restoration Worship Center Choir and musicians are awesome. We have truly been blessed by the favor of God.”

Indeed the diversity and all-around quality of the music on The Favor Of God, makes it well worth the wait. Ranging from rousing hand-clapping, foot-stomping tracks such as “One More Time” to the heartfelt, lush, orchestrated “God’s Grace,” The Favor Of God is truly a tour-de-force.

#OneTimeForUrMind: Erykah Badu – “A.D. 2000”

Posted on August 17th, 2016 by

Solo opinion warning – If we look at life in terms of a game, it’s definitely chess, not checkers. Life dwells in the realm of the thinker. Examine every angle before you make a move and remember as you are moving you can always be moved upon. I’m taking a bit of poetic license with this song dedicated to the memory of Amadou Diallo (penned by Erykah Badu and Betty Wright) my takeaway is from the old adage of folks building you up to bring you down.

I’ve noticed in my time here that the “bring you down” is the game of life that has the most participants, many of whom don’t know that they’re scheduled to be next on the firing line as soon as that sheet is taken off, or light is turned on or closet door is opened. It’s not that we don’t have a responsibility to ourselves and our fellow humans to be accountable for all of our actions, we do, my word of caution is that care should be taken in the zeal and vigor exacted to point how wrong something or someone is, because the foundation of self-righteousness is always shaky ground.

DJ Polished Solid: No Turn Unstoned #274 – Lisa Coleman Tribute Mix

Lisa Coleman

Description:
A special mix crafted with love and care for a very special lady for her upcoming birthday on August 17th! Thank you for your significant contributions to MUSIC! This mix contains songs where Lisa is singing lead primarily or background vocals.

Please note there are a couple of snippets of Wendy singing lead in this mix. I am aware. I’m also aware that Jill Jones often doubled background vocals with Lisa on some Prince songs so sometimes Jill’s voice comes through louder in certain parts. Read the rest of this entry »

#GetGrown: Stevie Wonder – “Innervisions Promo”

Posted on August 16th, 2016 by

Innervisions

I sometimes don’t like getting into the favorites game… so I’m not going to lead with the pronouncement that Innervisions is my favorite Stevie album. But if I had to name a fave, well you get the picture. I wanted to place this post under our #GetGrown moniker because this is just the type of nutrients one needs to grow. There’s a whole lot of highly processed sugar out there so for balance let’s grab some greens compliments of Steveland.
