Guest Blogger & TGIP: Brian Courtney WilsonPublished by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 4:57 pm.
Sup folks. This past week episode of Sunday Best 3 was epic! Brian Courtney Wilson helped to make it that way with his performance of “All I Need.” Like I said in my recap, Brian is a simple singer with a whole lot of power. He doesn’t do a lot of the extra we’ve come to expect or sometimes “require” (self included.) Well, I asked Brian to stop by and talk to us for a few about his experience Sunday night. And after you read his guest blog, check out the album version of the “All I Need” from his latest CD “Just Love.”

“First of all, I want to thank Torrence and the BET family for allowing me this opportunity to share thoughts on my Sunday Best experience with his readers. I remember Israel leading the audience in his rendition of the song ‘Moving Forward’ to open the show. What you didn’t see in the broadcast is how powerful the impact of that presentation was. The entire taping just shutdown. It was as if the Holy Spirit caused us all to recognize in one singular moment that God really does ‘make all things new’ to quote the song. Tears were flowing everywhere and I remember the band and everyone continuing with the refrain ‘You make all things new, yes you make all things new, and I will follow you…Forward’. Every subsequent presentation seemed to be delivered with the same awareness. It was significant for me because the only reason I was there to sing was because God has given me the courage to move forward despite my flaws and all the voices that would have me doubt that I can. I am sure that everyone who participated in this particular episode can remember a time when they had to ignore or silence those voices and move forward. I was grateful to be able to join them in the light, if but for a moment, knowing that I was there because God has His hand on me…leading me forward….and that is all I need.”

Thanks Brian. Appreciate you. We go way back. (I feel like I’ve told the story, but I’ll tell it again soon. But long story short, I almost missed out on how great a singer Brian was because of something stupid!!!)
Now take a listen to today’s TGIP, “All I Need”
