Well folks, 2010 is coming to an end and we’re about to walk into a new year and a new decade and hopefully you’re excited about it. I generally don’t get that excited about the “New Calendar Year” because birthdays to me seem to be more significant in an individual’s life and are “technically” that person’s new year. But I understand the significance and value in celebrating our COLLECTIVE new year and since we’re not all born on the same day, this allows us all to celebrate a new beginning together. So for that reason and a few others, I’m pretty excited about 2011 and what it has to offer so I thought it would be a good idea to formally say goodbye to 2010 with another series of “Yes, No, Maybe?” since you guys seemed to love it so much last year! Ready? Let’s dig right on in. Read the rest of this entry »

Sup folks, this will be quick because I need to rush out of the office, run some errands and get home in time for what “affectionately” (side-eye) call “TBN Black Night.” I found out today that the episode featuring Vashawn Mitchell would be airing TONIGHT and not in a few weeks as planned. I was there and it’s a really good episode. Donnie McClurkin hosts and Steve Harvey and Andrea McClurkin-Mellini are on the show too. Tears just flying everywhere, I even think from yours truly! (What can I say, that “Nobody Greater” gets me EVERYTIME!!!!)
So yeah, back to what we’re here for. Today’s song that “got me together” was off of Deitrick Haddon’s last solo project “Revealed” and is probably one of my favorite songs from the CD. Read the rest of this entry »

Today marks the one year since the “Anniversary” of the death of the Chief Minister of Pop Music, Minstrel Michael Joseph Jackson. The saints love a title don’t we? Ha! But seriously, gospel artist or not, Michael Jackson was one of the most influential artists of all time and his influence didn’t stop with pop and r&b. His music and career despite the the hiccups were just as relevant to those of us who proclaim to love gospel music. So with that in mind, I’m reposting a blog I did right after his funeral close to a year ago.
What’s interesting is that it seems like it was only yesterday that we found out the news that Michael had passed; but at the same times, it feel like it’s been a good while since so much has happened in the past year. The funeral, the movie, the charges, etc. It’s all been so much in so little time that I sometimes have to remind myself that he really is gone. I won’t put many disclaimers in this part of the post because I get that out of the way in the beginning of the repost, so I’ll just say “It’s my blog and I can blog what I want to!” (*In my best Cyndi Lauper voice.*) RIP MJ!

Hey folks, this will be quick! A lot of times I read through the comments and try to respond as much as I can, but sometimes it can get to be too much but what I notice most is that you wonder when past Sunday Best contestants CD’s are coming out. Well, you all know by now that Y’anna Crawley’s CD is dropping July 13. But I also get asked alot, “when is Jessica Reedy coming out, where is she,” etc. Well, I still don’t have a date for you, but I do know she’s been recording, just had no way of proving it to you. Well I finally have a little something to show and tell. Read the rest of this entry »

No, he isn’t a gospel artist. I’m not even sure if he professed to be “saved.” (Deep ones, go away! I’m out of flotation devices and this ship will sail REGARDLESS.) Read the rest of this entry »
