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.

Our Friend

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.
