Content is so important. I believe the message we as artists share has to have some meaning. Content is more than just beat, melody, rhythm. Lately, the music I hear makes me wonder. It grieves my spirit. Some of the lyrics are so dark, some are just stupid. I don’t care about your booty, or how much money you have or what you do in your bedroom. Seriously! As a vocalist, I listen to lyrics, what is sung should come from the heart, that it reflects truth. I haven’t always felt like that. I just dug the beat and thought it was cool, not really paying attention to what I was singing and how that was penetrating the hearts and spirits of the people who were listening. Have you ever had a song you hated, get stuck in your head? Exactly!
You know how a song will come on and in an instant you are transformed, you’re back there in that memory. You have a “remember that time” moment. Music evokes so many emotions – happy times, sadness, love. Music truly is the soundtrack of our lives.
I’m an artist who happens to be a Believer; I want to make a positive deposit into your spirit. When you hear my voice, the message, the words, I want you to be lifted.
I’ll share with you in the next few months a reflection of thoughts, feelings and insights that speak from my heart. Some are written by others, some are my own.
My dream is to live my life full of purpose, striving to be the best writer, vocal musician and evangelist that I can be. I will continue to share with you this journey. Walk with me, talk with me, share with me. Lets support, encourage and challenge each other. We will all grow.
Until next time, Blessings and Peace.
