TGIP: “Go Tell It” – Gary Mayes & Nu Era featuring Kim BurrellPublished by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, June 1, 2010 at 2:09 pm.
As promised, I’ll be continuing the series “Thank God It Played” today with a song by one of my favorite groups/choirs Gary Mayes & Nu Era. (Not sure how they choose to be labeled, they somewhat straddle the fence of both.) The song “Go Tell It” is Gary and crew’s twist and take on the Christmas season classic “Go Tell It On The Mountain” and was featured on their CD “Go Tell It – The N.E. Experience Vol. II.” Now I know it’s about 90 degrees outside in New York City and you may be thinking “It’s Not Christmas Torrence.” This part is true. However, I have to confess that a good song is a good song to me and I listen to what some would call “Holiday Music” all year long. Sue me, but have a good lawyer!
Well today on my way in from the long weekend I put my mp3 player on “shuffle” and when “Go Tell It” came on, all was right with the world! Our Sunday Best 3 mentor Kim Burrell shows on this why she is one of the best to ever do it. Enjoy!
What did you think of the track? Didn’t Kim blaze that? What are you listening to today?
