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 »

Yesterday Bishop Eddie Long spoke publicly for the first time about the 4 lawsuits files against him by 4 young men who claim that he used his influence and position as a spiritual leader to coerce them into sexual relationships. Many people, me included, were puzzled at Bishop Long’s decision to wait 5 days from the first allegation to publicly address the situation.
Hold up, let’s get this right together. THIS BLOG POST AND ANYTHING I SAY IN IT DOES NOT AND WILL NOT EXPRESS MY OPINION ON BISHOP LONG’S GUILT OR INNOCENCE. Still not clear? Let me try this again. Do not try and read into whether I think he did it or not. I won’t say, at least not yet. But what I will discuss are my thoughts on how he’s handled it so far and how I predict this may play out.

Malinda Sapp (wife of Marvin Sapp) died today after dealing with complications stemming from colon cancer. A few weeks ago, we learned that Malinda had become ill and requested corporate prayer. I’m sure all of us took part in whatever way we could to lift Malinda up. Now, let us continue to pray for Marvin Sapp and his entire family while they deal with their sad loss.

Hey folks. My apologies for being late on this but I was in meetings all day and found out late.
According to MarvinSapp.com Malinda Sapp, Marvin Sapp’s wife had battled and seemingly overcome a bout with stage 4 colon Cancer and apparently the condition is trying to resurface. The Sapps and their church family have organized and launched a corporate 24 hour prayer campaign for her healing and are asking all who can to participate. Read the rest of this entry »

Sup folks, so recently I got to sit down with Myron Butler of Myron Butler & Levi. We talked about his days with God’s Property and Kirk Franklin, working with Marvin Sapp on his success and their current project “Revealed… Live In Dallas.” We also got into a discussion as to why his music is so complicated. Perhaps “musically sophisticated” is a better term, I don’t know, but WATCH & enjoy. I had a good time with this one! Read the rest of this entry »

Ok, so this one of my favorite songs from Hezekiah Walker & LFC’s latest CD “Souled Out.” It’s one of those “get me together songs.” The *whoosh* is strong and I was surprised and excited to find out that it had a video! If you knew already, so what, I didn’t! HA! Marvin Sapp is also featured on the cut and you KNOW he does his good singing!
Shout out to my buddy Tia Smith who’s production company “talentedSOL” Productions who produced the video. You know how we complain about “ghetto gospel videos?” Well, Tia and her crew are pushing gospel video production forward with excellence and I dig it!
Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Sup folks, i’m really excited about today’s release. It’s a GREAT couple of weeks for gospel music. Last week, we found out Marvin Sapp broke records and had amazing success with his new CD, “Here I Am.” Aside from it being the #2 album in the country and selling over 75K copies, it was REALLY good. (Let’s be real, everything that sells well isn’t always good!)
Well, today Myron Butler & Levi have released their 3rd CD, “Revealed… Live in Dallas” and I have to say, I LOVE IT! Read the rest of this entry »

This post may be short. Because it’s really not about my “commentary” but about the song and the cause.
During this past Stellar Awards weekend, Kirk Franklin and a TON of the gospel artists in town came together to record a song to inspire, comfort and raise funds for the people affected by the recent earthquakes in Haiti. A gospel “We Are The World” if you will. I think the gospel industry ought to be commended for this effort and I support it fully and hope you will too. Read the rest of this entry »
