TGIP: “Keep Me” – Tye Tribbett featuring Pastor TimPublished by Torrence Glenn on Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 6:00 pm.
Whew, a post not about Eddie Long! And we just bless GAWD! Ha! I’ll keep watching the story and will keep you updated though. Just saying…
But seriously, fielding the calls, requests and researching this week with that story has definitely given me a run for my money. Well, anyway today I was flipping through my iTunes playlist to try and alter my mood a little bit and I remembered this song. As you know, Tye Tribbett has a new CD coming out soon, so as a member of the “media” I was able to get a copy of the CD early and had been listening to this one song…. A LOT. Wasn’t a fan of the single “Fresh” and keep thinking to myself and asking why isn’t “this song” a single instead because THIS SONG is hot and it’s so relevant and appropriate for so many people for so many reasons. Mysteriously, it’s recently been released as a single so you’ve probably heard it at radio. (*deliberate side eye*)
So with “all that’s going on” in and outside of the church and gospel community, I decided to pull this song back out and share it with you. It’s called “Keep Me” and features Pastor Tim Crawford (aka Pastor Tim.)…. The SINGING that Tye and Pastor Tim are doing is absolutely and ridiculously incredible and if you really listen to the words, it will get you together. The song has a traditional spin to it but there are plenty of contemporary vocal choices he used to spice it up. I know I’ve been rather, ummm, “critical” of Tye musically in the past but if you paid attention, most of my criticism had to do with how talented I thought he was and that it didn’t always show in the music. He’s a GREAT singer and I’m excited that he has a song that really shows it. This is the kind of singing I like from him. Now I don’t expect him to turn around and become a quartet singer but I’m glad that he’s “sanging” again. So, I invite you to go in on “Keep Me.” I’m texting my adjutant now to go ahead and grab my monogrammed white sheet and smelling salts.
