Pray For Your Son Debut

Jeverson Ramirez is from the wonderful island of Grenada.  He is forging ahead making his gospel debut single Pray For Your Son an anthem for the nations. The song Pray For Your Son is receiving positive recognition.  Jeverson joined Grenada’s Presentation Brothers College Choir to remix his song.  The song was birthed from an outcry from George Floyd’s murder. In the midst of a pandemic and constant abuse of black men being abused and killed by police officers seems to be a trend that is very disheartening. Jeverson never thought he would be a solo artist. For the most part he sang as a group member or in a choir. He tried to sing solo but he was strongly criticized for his voice not being “strong enough.”  Although many doubted his ability, God did not. He would soon become a solo artist with two hit singles, Pray For Your Son and Move. Quickly making his voice heard all over the world from Grenada.

Soul Session Vol. 1

Travis Higgins is a musician, recording artist and songwriter. He is no stranger to soul and inspirational music.  Born the son of a pastor, Higgins grew up in his father’s church. The drums were his first introduction to musicianship. Later, he transitioned to piano and organ. When he got hit with the music bug it was not gospel music.  He enjoyed hip-hop and secular music and even played for a few well-known artists.  Travis Higgins credits his mother for training his musical ear by listening to gospel greats like Walter Hawkins, the Winans, Rance Allen, and other soulful gospel recordings. Her secular playlist included sounds of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and the Jackson 5 to name a few. Travis Higgins was unknowingly becoming a student of soul music.  Which can be heard on his debut project Soul Session Vol. 1.  Soul Session Vol.1 is a breath of fresh air for those missing good soul music.

New Gospel Music

New music from Bishop Charles R. Lyles and The New John Howard Gospel Caravan. Their new single Free is a song that will speak to those who walking around with masks and those who are feeling isolated during this pandemic. Free is an anthem of hope.  Reminding listeners things may look uncertain but Jesus is still King of kings and Lord of lords. Being free is a mindset, not a location.  While we troop through this pandemic let’s be reminded that trouble don’t last always. Even in the midst of it all you can be free.  It has been a year since Covid19 changed our way of living.  Many could not imagine, a pandemic would shut down our society.  The song Free comes from a personal experience, which is a reminder that we are victorious in Christ.

Friendship Is A Choice

The Bible says A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.  In this wonderful film Our Friend, about love, life and friendship, humanity is found.  In our world of so much unrest, family is still the cornerstone for strength. On January 21st, I attended a Q&A hosted by Branden Harvey with Casey Affleck and Matthew Teague.  In the interview below are the questions he posed.  One of the questions asked; We’re living in a pandemic and many have experienced loss this year.  Why is Our Friend the type of film we should all watch? If I had to answer, surely I would have reflected on the necessary need for all of us to stay connected and to love each other. The times and days are evil, just watch the news.  Our Friend is a film about a caring man who puts his own life on hold to help out his friends, a couple facing a devastating crisis.  Like that old rap song said, Friends, how many of us have them? Ones we can depend on, Friends. By Whodini.
