Tonex – “This Is All Of Me”Published by Torrence Glenn on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 3:18 pm.
First, let’s just get this out the way… I know you’ve seen or at least heard about Tonex’s latest interview with Lexi on the Word Network. Tonex revealed some things that most would consider ”controversial.” The most obvious revelations being those regard his sexuality. Interestingly enough, when I spoke with Tonex a few months ago, there were some portions of the interview that I didn’t air. There were some things in there that just made me go “I don’t think we want to go here, and this will make it too long anyway.” (EVERY interview gets edited in some way folks, don’t be tricked.) I know where “the church” and “the industry” stand on this issue and everyone on either side is FREE to stand where they choose on it. In the words of my ever-wise grandma: “that’s ya business, have at it.” HOWEVER, IN MY OPINION Tonex remains a ridiculously talented and gifted artist and despite how you, I or anyone else may feel about his recent revelations; the music still stands. If I were to ignore or discredit every artist who disclosed something someone disagreed with, this blog would cease to exist as would the music business.
So with that said, I’d like to share something with you. This song found it’s way into my inbox over the weekend and after listening to it, I was blown away. I feared that because of all that was going on surrounding his last interview, no one would get the chance to hear it. So, I’m taking a risk and sharing this with you. Not only is it a great song, but has a message I think Tonex wants to deliver. And since everyone has so many questions, why not listen and get some answers.
Oh yeah, tell me what you think as always.
